In many, if not all aspects of life, work, and love, we will always be presented with challenges. And with those challenges come choices and the chance to figure out a solution to our problems. During these past few weeks of staff training at camp, we have been been extremely busy getting everything prepared for … More What Are Our Options?
This week’s photo of the week really represents life at camp at the moment. This past week was a week for specialty training – of the lifeguards, for the ropes course elements and for the supervisory staff. It’s was a great week to all get together, learn some new stuff (and be reminded of some … More Photo Of The Week: Supervisors Say What?!
These past few weeks back at camp have been pretty glorious (yes, I’m aware I didn’t post a photo of the week last Sunday…the days just seems to all merge into one once I’m here) – we’ve been working hard, playing hard and generally having a pretty great time. The evenings during the Spring season … More Photo Of The Week: Out On The Lake

It’s been weeks, months and years of planning, hoping, wishing and dreaming, but I finally did it. I finally boarded that plane and moved to Australia! And what a crazy journey it’s been. This all began way back in December 2011 when, pretty much just days after arriving in this gloriously sunny country, I’d decided … More From London to Australia, A Journey
So I know you’ve all seen the last video from Sloane that I posted (the One Direction Lip Dub), but that was just a taster of what we get up to at camp.

These last few weeks we’ve been crazy busy here at camp, with plenty of groups and programming during the start of our Fall Camp season.
