Dear Family,
Sorry about the lack of update yesterday.
Yesterday we celebrated Mardi Gras. We made masks and did some kayaking. It rained a bit. We had a monks dinner, which only a few of our girls made it through unscathed.
Today we celebrated Christmas and we had a very wet day. We did get some swimming and more kayaking and canoeing in. We then had a wonderful Christmas dinner and we gave the girls a Christmas gift and we said our good byes. It’s been a great week see you tomorrow!

Love,

Your Camper

Dear Family,

Today we celebrated Halloween and talked about how it all got started. We did drama activities and learned about Macbeth. After and amazing stir fry lunch, we played Quidditch! It was so much fun.
We had pizza for dinner, the campers made the dough and grated the cheese. Then, we had our vespers service and campfire. And then, we dressed up and went trick-or-treating. It was a great day!

Love,

Your Camper

Dear Family,
Today we said, “Happy Birthday!” We are having a week of celebrations and today we celebrated everyone’s birthday and got to know each other.
We had an amazing meal and the girls learned how to do dishes. We then had a vesper service and campfire. Then we decorated cupcakes and sang “Happy Birthday”. We are looking forward to Halloween tomorrow!

Love,

Your Camper

Hey CGIT camper family and friends,

We had an awesome day. We talked about the beauty in our words and how important they are to convey certain messages. We did some water gun painting, kayaking, painting rocks, had a talent show, and any other great activities. As it is our last night, we had a good bye service and we all hugged and are sad to see camp coming to an end.
Love,

Your Camper

Hey CGIT family and friends,

Today was our ‘Beauty in the Media’ day at camp. We had great discussions, did some canoeing and swimming, it was such a beautiful day! Then we did a photo shoot with make up and hair and tiaras. After that we had a formal dinner, it was lovely. We finished with vespers and campfire. Crystal and Sylvia read more of ‘The Giver’ for the girls at bed time. What a great day! I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!
Love,

Hello CGIT family and friends,

Today was day 2 of our fabulous camp.
We had a wonderful discussion with some guests that told us some stories about their CGIT or camp experiences. It was great to hear about what it was like for them.
It was a very cold day so we only went swimming for a short time after making jewellery and friendship bracelets.
We had a great vesper service run by the girls and then went to the new lodge to watch ‘Into the Woods’ and have a snack. Sylvia continued ‘The Giver’ which we are very much enjoying!
Have a wonderful night!
Love,

Your Camper

Dear family,

Christmas in July!!!! Last night the people from Variety brought in 10 new kayaks for our camp, and we got to unwrap them!! Then today we all got in and had a kayak ride! It was an amazing last day of camp. Except for the cleaning, the mopping, the bathrooms, and the finding-all-my-stuff. I think I have one of my friends’ socks. But I also came home with some great memories of a great camp, and we all have great plans for next year’s camp. LOL!!

Love,

Hi, family,

Last full day!! This morning there was a lot of fog, and later we made a lot of pizza dough! Then we canoed to the regatta at the beach and we met our new friend Kevin who is a crayfish. Don’t worry, we released him–today was all about freedom. Fabulous pizza for dinner, with fabulous handmade crust. Super excited about our sleepover at the new lodge!! See you tomorrow!

Love,

Your Camper
