(to the tune of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song)

In North Carolina, not born but raised

At Camp Merri-Mac is where we spend our summer days.

Chilling out, maxing, relaxing – it’s great – hanging out with our friends in the Tar Heel State.

We’re Merri-Mac campers, going to class like we should,

learning how to wet exit and cook baked goods.

It’s the third night of camp, it feels surreal.

Trading post, making mems, and baked oatmeal.

Throughout Merri-Mac on this fine Tuesday campers could be seen doing everything from climbing at the Grotto in climbing, to participating in a relay race to pack backpacks in Camp Craft.  In Cooking, the girls baked delicious chocolate chip cookies.  In canoeing the girls learned the parts of the paddle by singing a song to the tune of Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes. In tennis the girls could be seen working on their forehands, and playing Jail. We feasted upon baked oatmeal, pizza, and barbecue chicken during the day.

There were murmurs of last night’s shaving cream fight, and talk of who had the most outrageous hairstyle. Both campers and counselors fought valiantly, and also got to enjoy the wonderful waterslide.

Many girls had the opportunity to venture out of camp today on trips in which they put their skills into practice. Anna M., Becca M., Katherine G., Elizabeth W., and Julia C. all went on a climbing trip. Kate A., Clare D., Rachel H., Everly H., Mary Louise J., Taylor M., Kaylee A., Annie H., Kate L., Katherine M., Alice M., and Alex P. soaked up the sun on Lake James as they went water skiing.
