Summer 2023 Session 5 Day 1
We've had a great start to Session 5. The day began with parents and campers arriving on time to the Taipei pick up location. It didn't take long for the buses to fill up and for campers to be off and on their way to Camp Taiwan. More smiling counselors greeted campers when they arrived at camp and soon everyone was unpacking in their tents and taking a tour of their living areas. Campers checked in with the camp nurse and then we all met in the Main Hall. I welcomed everyone to camp and went over some important camp rules, and then it was time for a big lunch. After rest time, campers had a full afternoon of activities.
Teams followed this schedule today.
Red Team: Arrive, check-in, lunch, crafts, rock climbing
Orange Team: Arrive, check-in, lunch, cooperative games, crafts
Brown Team: Arrive, check-in, lunch, giant swing, cooperative games
Yellow Team: Arrive, check-in, lunch, ecology, Pillo Polo

Campers are getting cleaned up for dinner. After dinner, they will have a chance to write in their journals all about their first day of camp. Tonight's evening program is the opening campfire. Campers will sing songs, play games, and, of course, roast marshmallows for S'mores. We are all very happy the tropical storm decided to let us be!

Please find a Dropbox Link below. Photos will be uploaded to this folder every evening -- usually by 8 p.m. Please note, many more photos will be uploaded throughout the week at different times. Be patient as events at camp can lead to busy counselors and directors and might delay uploads from time to time. On Saturday morning, we will upload the weekly videos for this session.
