Closing Ceremonies at Camp Wilani

Today we left work early so we could drive out to Camp Wilani and attend the closing ceremonies for our little campers. Camp Wilani is out in Veneta, over a hill and down a gravel road.
We all drove out there and parked, and then we walked into the camp. It is deep in the woods althought they have clear-cut just across the meadow. We went to an amphitheater where the other campers were all waiting for us.
Camp fire still looks the same as it did 20 years ago, surprisingly enough. The outfits were about the same, and even the patches sometimes looked like 70s motif.
The kids sang, did skits, and talked about their week and what they learned. The twins and the other kindergarteners were just adorable singing together. Their counselor, 'Monkey' did a great job of leading them all.
All the camp counselors had fake names for the week and they announced their real names today. It was a lot of fun.
I'll load pictures this weekend. Have a good one.

It's funny I noticed this headline. Hello, my name is Nikki, I'm 23 years old and I am a counselor at Camp Wilani for the 2008 camp year. My camp counselor name is Smokey (the Bear). This will be my third year, and I hope for it to not be my last.
