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?!
And so here we are. It’s the very last day of summer camp at Camp Sloane YMCA, where I’ve been working for the last 12 weeks. The kids are gone, the sun is shining, the non camp appropriate music is blaring, and we are getting our clean on. Everyone is working hard, making sure we … More The Best Summer Ever
These lovely people were my tenties lat summer (i.e. we lived in a tent together). That’s me, on the left, and those are my campers and my co-counselor, Juliet. We had such a great time last year, all living in our cosy (*ahem* messy) tent for over a month. This year these girlies have grown … More Photo of the Week: Me And My Campers
On my very last morning at camp, I went down to the lake to take one last look at the beauty of the place I had called home for the last 4 months. It was a pretty special moment, with the water as still as I’d ever seen it, and the mist floating along every … More Photo Of The Week: One Last Look

But every so often we get a bit of downtime, … More Photo Of The Week: The Best Place In The World
So it is the day we’ve all been working towards for the last few weeks. Staff training is over and the kids arrive today! This is a picture of the entire summer staff whom I will be working alongside for the next 2 months. And it is going to be EPIC!
This is something we’ve been working on all year, and it has finally come together now that we’re back at camp. During the summer we do a certain dance involving a certain song, and we decided to spread the Sloane love and do this dance all around the world, from all of our various locations. … More New Video: Sloaners Do The Sprinkler
I’ve finally finished it…the lip dub video that we did at camp of One Republic’s amazing song ‘Good Life’. For me, it perfectly sums up what my summer at Camp Sloane was all about. Enjoy!
So camp is over. The last 67 days (yes I counted) have been some of the best, the hardest, the most fun, the most stressful, the most awesome days ever, and I was so sad to get on that bus and watch Sloane disappear into the distance. But before I tell you what I’m doing … More Post-Camp Adventures
