Down the Stretch We Come!

As we approach the final days of our first session here in Casco, it’s hard to believe how quickly time has flown by. It feels like just yesterday we were jumping off the bus with excitement and anticipation for all the adventures ahead. Now, friendships have deepened and memories have been made that will last a lifetime. Each day here has been filled with fun, friendship, and growth. It’s amazing to see how much we’ve all accomplished in such a short time.

We recently returned from our trip to Funtown-Splashtown USA in nearby Saco, Maine. It was an evening of thrilling rides, refreshing water slides and endless fun under the summer sun. Whether we were screaming on Dragon’s Descent or splashing in the water park, the trip was a perfect blend of excitement and relaxation, bringing us even closer together.

Tonight, all eyes are on Moosebowl, our legendary flag football game that unites the entire camp. It’s not just a game between the Black Bears and the Rattlesnakes; it’s a tradition unlike any other, filled with spirit, sportsmanship, and competition. As we cheer on our oldest Bago campers under the lights, it’s hard not to notice our younger boys anticipating their turn to play. No matter the outcome, we can’t wait to celebrate the camaraderie and enjoy the amazing halftime dance show. 

We have a packed final week ahead of us. We’re eagerly anticipating our upcoming theatre shows. The talent and dedication of our campers in bringing these productions to life are truly inspiring. From rehearsals to costume fittings, actors to theatre tech crew, everyone is buzzing with excitement to showcase their creativity and passion on stage. We’re also looking forward to our final S day, jam-packed with the Katahdin Cup (our highly anticipated girls’ soccer game against the staff) and Moose Stock (our music festival, packed with guest artists and camp musicians). These events not only highlight our athletic and artistic talents but also reinforce the sense of Laurel South family. 

We look forward to wringing every ounce of enjoyment out of our final days of programming before packing our camp bags. As we reflect on all we’ve experienced and accomplished so far, we’re excited to make the most of every moment, cherishing the time we have left at Laurel South this summer.
