Merrywood 2022


After 2 years without camp due to COVID-19, I finally got to go back to camp this summer. Unlike previous years’ camps, which were 10 days, this year’s camp was only 7 days. At camp I did lots of crafts. On Day 2 , I painted the stones of the campfire. We were Cabin of the Day on Day 3. On this day the flagpole theme was Animals and the song was the intro to the TV show Franklin. I made flower pots in pottery. We also had a campfire whose theme was water.

Day 4’s theme was the movie Jumanji. I created my own game called “Socky,” which was a combination of soccer and hockey.

On Day 5 we had a scavenger hunt. I had lots of fun! I quoted some lines from the Apple TV+ series Helpsters. As soon as I finished everything on the list, I said “All the jobs are done.” Afterwords, because it was hot outside, I played water games on the grass. My favourite water game was “Drip Drip Drop.” I got very wet!

Day 6 featured a talent show. During the show my counsellor Anna flipped her hand to create strobe lights for the song “I See The Light” from the movie Tangled. It was so nice!

The last full day was Day 7, which was the goodbye banquet. The banquet theme was “Enchanted Forests.” Because of that, I felt I had to incorporate light somehow. Anna and camper Riley made me a lantern like in Tangled as a souvenir. In the dining hall I was happy to see lots of lights everywhere, especially blue ones. It was very pretty and it looked like my skin was glowing all over. After dinner, we watched a slideshow of our camp week. Two of my favourite songs were in the slideshow, which made me happy. After the slideshow we danced, which was great!

This week was awesome and I’m looking forward to my next camp session!

    Jon, you did such a lot of fun things at camp. I’m so glad you were able to go. And now you have another session to look forward to. What can be better? I’m sure it’ll be another fun time and I’ll be thinking of you.
    Love, Ba-chan
