It was a beautiful day at Skylemar, outside and in. The sun was warm, and so were our hearts. It was Thankful Thursday.
Matt Hoidal, the founder of World of Change, returned to accept the hundreds of dollars of change that the kids donated this summer. You may recall that every time the boys were allocated spending money on a trip, they could decide to contribute what was leftover to this wonderful organization which helps children in need.

Mixed-in to the schedule of activities was a final health check at the infirmary, a visit to the Lost & Found table and a stop at the Appreciation Station. It was there that kids wrote some of the most incredible thank-you notes to staff members and friends. Once again, there’s nothing like good old fashioned handwriting. You can “see” the heart-felt emotion that typing can’t capture.
Bunk 2 showed their appreciation to Skylemar by opening up a lemonade stand. The price was right, and all loved the refreshing treat.
The Final Banquet, with our beloved Retrospect Show was absolutely phenomenal. Your son will tell you all about it, but probably not until he sleeps for a few days. Camp Skylemar is exhausted.
This blogger is also exhausted, but more importantly, she is grateful. Grateful for every camper and staff member who step foot on these sacred grounds; grateful for our photographers and videographers who give you a glimpse of your son’s special world; and grateful to an amazing sports ghost writer who covers the Color War news. Bet you were impressed with the sports talk…
And finally, thank you, wonderful SkyParents, for being the greatest in the whole wide world. Thank you for entrusting us with your most precious possessions, for making Skylemar possible, and for sharing your spectacular young man.
See you back on this website, June 24, 2018!
