All In

Picture this:  Some friends are out camping and come across a beautiful lake.  It’s a warm day and everyone is in favor of cooling off.  Some in the group approach the water slowly…dip their toes in…maybe go in to knee level.  Little by little, they become more submerged. Other members of the group run to the water…laughing and screaming and cheering before diving in head first.  Before long, everyone is swimming and having a great time. Just like camp!

While each individual is different, camp is the perfect place to dive in head first and be “all in.”  With just 3-and-a-half weeks of camp, we pack so much into each summer.  Campers and staff who dive headfirst and are “all in” will quickly find out what makes Laurel South their summer home:

Laughter

Camp is the perfect place to show off the goofy, wacky, enthusiastic parts of your personality.  Between Roger’s jokes at Cove, inside cabin jokes, playing outside with friends or having fun at an Evening Program, the sounds of laughter echo all over Laurel South!

Cheering and Singing

There’s no place where cheering is more prevalent than at camp. Campers sing for a camping trip or the fact that we have Chocolate Cream Pie for dessert. Or even that they got all their laundry put away during cabin time. At camp, even the smallest moments are immortalized in song and cheer!

Spirit

The Laurel South spirit goes beyond giving it our best effort on the field.  Camp spirit is about community; from the friends in your cabin to the counselors and administrators, all the way to Roger and Dagni. Enthusiasm and spirit at camp can be seen on the basketball courts, but the spirit is equally tangible at a Rocket Launch, Theatre Show, birthday party and more.

Camp

At Laurel South, there is no such thing as too much “camp.” That’s why most campers and counselors can’t help themselves from telling camp stories during the off-season. Campers and counselors agree life would be so much better if “11 for 1” was actually “1 for 11.”

The Energy of Laurel South

There is a buzz in the air every morning at camp; a feeling that puts an extra pep in our step even before our feet hit the floor. Counselors wake up with a sense of excitement and readiness for the day. The energy of camp is hard to explain unless you’ve experienced it yourself. Being surrounded by positive people is a natural stimulant that gives campers and staff a boost of energy every day.

It’s easy to be in a good mood when nature is everywhere. There’s the beauty of Crescent Lake, the forest and sprawling fields. It’s the soft breeze between the trees in the morning and the glow of the campfire at night. The beauty of camp is refreshing, and spending a few minutes appreciating the vast beauty is usually enough to get anyone going.

There’s also a beauty and energy in the people of camp. The relationships, activities and memories create a unique sense of contagious positivity. Campers can’t help but run freely across camp because there’s so much excitement surrounding them! Of course, not every moment is rainbows and butterflies, but campers feel upbeat, encouraged and excited for the majority of their time at camp.

Campers and counselors feed off the genuine energy and positive vibes of each other. There is something about camp that keeps the energy alive from sunrise to sunset. Spend a summer at Laurel South so you can feel it for yourself!
