2010 Timber Lake Camp Summer Round-up
♫ ♫ “I throw my hands up in the air sometimes, saying ay-oh, gotta let go! I wanna celebrate and live my life saying ay-oh, baby let’s go!” ♫ ♫
For those parents that don’t recognize those lyrics, they are from the song of the summer, Dynamite, by Taio Cruz. Whenever this song was played for the camp, everyone went crazy! But these aren’t just lyrics from the song of the summer- instead they are lyrics that described the summer in a nutshell! Our Timber Lake campers truly had an amazing time as they were really able to let go of hard work and homework at school, and enjoy themselves on a daily basis in the best camp in the world!
It is easy to pick out the song of the summer, but when thinking about the best highlights of the summer, it is nearly impossible to pick just a few! From Opening Day until the buses departed on August 15th, campers and staff had many amazing memorable experiences.
Personally, Dancing with the Teens was one of my favorite full camp activities! (This is where we had our youngest campers paired with our oldest campers, only to have a dance competition in front of the entire camp – check out a video HERE: But there was nothing as exciting as our Jacobs Cup victory with an INSANE semi-finals game that included a game winning shot by Ethan Back! (Video HERE.) What about when our Freshman and Cadets participated in square dancing? Of course, nothing compares to the best 5 days of the summer – Marathon! The list can go on and on!

Now, in our Winter office, we are already preparing for another spectacular summer in 2011. I am sure there will be many more highlights to come, so stay tuned!
