Last Day of Camp!

Everyone had a great time this week making snow globes and playing on Water Day.  Tomorrow marks the last day of camp for summer 2014!  As a reminder, at camp there will be a ton of fun things - a water slide, dunk tank, slip 'n' slide, games, and lots of snacks! Remember to send your child to camp with a swim suit. 

There are also a ton of forgotten items left in the cabin from the course of the summer.  Our goal is to have the cabin completely cleaned out tomorrow after camp, so please check to make sure your child did not accidentally leave something at camp. 

Finally, thank you for a wonderful summer at Camp Ya-Gotta-Wanna.  It's been a pleasure working with everyone and getting to know everyone involved in the program.  I hope you all enjoyed your summer as much as I did!

CYGW Loves Bucky!

 Bucky visited camp today!  The kids had a wonderful time following him around and playing with him.  He was glad to see so many campers wearing badger gear!
