Day 2: June 28

When I woke up on the first full day of camp, I brushed my teeth and went straight to the dust bowl to play basketball. After that we went to breakfast and then had inspection followed by class. Although it was a little rainy, Mr. Arte introduced us to the Camp Monserrate talent show rules. For group activity my cabin played Capture the Flag. Then we had dinner and watched The Mighty Ducks.
The event I choose to focus on was free time. Free time was fun because we got to play with the counselors. We played basketball, baseball, and football in the dust bowl. The first full day was a little bit of a drag because we had to review the rules, but it turned out pretty good.

Day 1: June 27

Today begins the first in our series of student blogs. They are working on blogging in their ELA classes, so the posts will be a couple days late. Enjoy the first one, by Jeremy!

When we woke up we came to Nativity, the bus was there early. After that Father Jack blessed the bus and our parents waved us goodbye. When we were on the bus it took a long time to get to camp. When we arrived, we went to the basketball court to play some get-to-know games. When we finished, we went to unpack. Afterwards, we had a mini group discussion, then we ate dinner, then we had a couple of minutes of free time. After we had our fun time we went to the main hall to talk about the rules that we already knew, the staff also had a surprise for us, and they took us to the campfire. It was special because it was the first campfire on the first day in the history of Camp Monserrate, then we went to sleep to save our energy for the next day.

We've Arrived

We have arrived at Camp Monserrate! After a long bus ride, the campers found out who was in their cabins, ate some delicious food made by Val, and then kicked off the camp season with an opening campfire.

Check out the first set of pictures to the right.

Stay tuned for blog postings written by the campers during their summer ELA classes! The first one will be published on Tuesday or Wednesday.
