Making New Friends” was the focus of week 1 activities, including evening Cabin Activities to help the cabin group bond.   

If you’ve been checking the daily Towering Pines photos on Facebook or Smugmug, you already know that Dodgeball, Angle Ball, Kick-the-Can, Water Basketball, Kickball, and Basketball have all been popular camper choices.  You’ve also seen tons of group photos full of smiling campers.

To experience the “first-week-of-camp” from the camper point of view, first year camper Tanner H (8 years old / Menominee) shares his impressions: 

“This is my first year at Towering Pines.  My dad came here as a camper.  When he heard that my friend’s sister was going to Camp Woodland, he remembered about this camp and let me come here too.

I haven’t been homesick at all.  I have a lot of friends, in all the cabins,  too many (friends) to count!  I become friends with (the other campers) by playing with them and talking to them, so I have friends in all my activities.

My favorite activities so far are archery, crafts, riding,…pretty much all of them.  I want to keep coming back (to Towering Pines) so I can be an archery counselor someday. “

Thanks for sharing your insights Tanner!  And thanks Dad, for letting your son have the same great experiences you had as a camper.
