Sunshine Group Summer of 2011 – 6 Weeks of Memories, Growth, and Friendships

Friendship

It was an absolutely fabulous summer and we truly enjoyed getting to know your children over this time!  It is hard to believe that six weeks has flown by so quickly!  Thank you to all of you who helped out at the Carnival today.  It was another great success and a huge hit with campers and their families.  We had a beautiful day (in fact, we were really lucky with weather all summer long) and it was a wonderful way to close out the summer.

For anyone who may be interested, there are copies of the Talent Show (on 2 dvds), as well as a Sunshine Slideshow DVD that captures all of the wonderful memories of the summer through pictures and music.  There are still copies available for purchase.  If you are interested in purchasing one or both of these DVDs, please contact Jill Masterson by email (coachjm24@yahoo.com) and she will arrange delivery of the purchase.  Both options are $5 a piece.  It is a great way to hold on to the memories!

Again, thank you for another wonderfully successful summer with the Sunshine Group!  We look forward to seeing you again next summer!

Friendship Week Continues – Please Submit Your Permission Slip for Tomorrow’s Trip!

It is clear that everyone at camp is finishing the summer with brand new friends and some have spent the summer reconnecting with old friends as well.  Today, friends were playing musical towels together, trying to pass a hula hoop through a circle of friends (while holding hands), completing a friendship scavenger hunt (trying to find a friend at camp who has the same favorite food), and making fabulous photo frames using magnets!  Tomorrow we head off on our final field trip of the summer.  Please remember to send in a permission slip with your choice for field trip.  Then we will cap off the summer with a fantastic carnival extravaganza!  Families of campers, CITs, volunteers, and staff are all more than welcome to join us for Friday’s fun!
