Kenny Silver: Grade 6
Buckley Camp this past summer was a blast. The campers and the staff all had a good time. A highlight of the summer was when it was superhero day at camp. Mr. Roby Young came, and the campers gave him a shield and cape. Another highlight was the game show. Everyone could participate in either the brain challenge or physical challenge.
The camp also had a Buckley Cares Day that raised almost $9,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. One of the campers’ favorite days was the carnival. For all of you play-lovers out there, you would have liked the Buckley Playhouse production of “Legally Blonde.” One of the stars was Buckley student Bryan Byrne.
Junior Camp had a good time with Western Day. There were pony rides and square dancing, and campers and staff also dressed up for the occasion. There was an “I Love the 80’s” Day, too, which celebrated the 30th anniversary of camp.
Some campers and staff have been at camp for years. Those who have been at camp for 5 years were initiated and allowed to go on a trip to Splish, Splash. They also received a teddy bear. This past summer, 15 people were initiated by being turned into ice cream sundaes. What was really cool was that in week 6 there was a “Camplified” day-long event that ended in a rock concert.
I don’t know about you, but I think that’s a pretty cool summer. See you next summer!
