Happiness explodes at Camp Skylemar!
It was a sparkling clear and sunshiny day, perfect for welcoming the greatest guys in the world. All went to plan with drivers, and even the planes flew on time.
We’re told that the boys were amazing on the BWI flight, with only one teeny mishap - a Cool2Care Charity Box accidentally dropped, raining quarters, nickels and dimes. At PBI airport the TSA had a first, as they questioned the purpose of a “bongo bag” sent through the security scanner. Buses were loud and fun, with happy chants and favorite camp songs.
No matter how the boys traveled, as they stepped on the grounds each was greeted with rounds of hugs and a “welcome home”. We’ve been patiently waiting for 365 days and finally it’s time for CAMP SKYLEMAR 2019!
A summer of friendship was kicked off with a hearty dinner of spaghetti and meatballs (a 71-year tradition). Opening Intros for Evening Activities, which included Shep’s special message about kindness and care for each other.
Rest assured that all is fine, with each camper tucked warmly in bed. Of course, there were a few tears, but that’s to be expected. After all, goodbyes are tough when said to those who we love.
We’re super excited for tomorrow. Let the best season begin!
