The Scoop From Boys Camp

Today was the first round of the USTA Tournament and tomorrow is the second. Once the tournament is over we will update you on the results!

The Upper Juniors had an Intercamp at Forest Lake and although we can’t always win the consensus was that the boys had fun anyways and of course tried their hardest!

Evening Activity was Hobby Night and the boys zoomed through camp to their favorite activities. Some of the favorite choices to name a few were: water-skiing, wake-boarding, tubing, nature, and woodworking!

The Seniors returned safe and sound from Montreal and we can’t wait to hear all about their trip!

Here is more updates from our group leaders on how the first week of camp went!

Upper Sophs-
Since the campers arrived it has been a constant whirlwind of activities. Everyone was so excited to see friends from previous summers and also make many new ones as well. There have been many events that traditionally are at the start of camp, one being the counselor talent show which is always a fun event. The campers also got their camp brothers and had a scavenger hunt that took them all around camp. Our 4th of July celebration occurred on Saturday at the Boys Camp. The girls camp came over to the boys side to celebrate and everyone had such an amazing time participating in activities on the hill, eating at the pig night site and watching a phenomenal firework show at the beach. We have recently started our intercollegiate competitions and all of the boys were excited to be competing each day, exhibiting great sportsmanship all around in their group. The intercollegiate team names are the Sun Devils, Red Dragons, Nittany Lions, Blue Devils, Badgers, and Chippewas. – Jon

Lower Juniors-
Hello Lower Junior Parents. It has been a great opening week at Raquette Lake Boys Camps. The campers have enjoyed some of the traditions that make RLBC so special to them. Notably, the Opening Campfire and music on the beach with Sid, the counselor talent show, a scavenger hunt with their respective camp brother(s), and their first social with Raquette Lake Girls Camp. The boys have also kicked off their Intercollegiate Sports with everyone competing on one of six teams in a wide range of team sports.I feel confident that the Lower Juniors will build meaningful relationships and have unforgettable experiences this summer. -Bobby
