November 2019 News! Reunions, Caribou Pride, Staff Updates, & So Much More!
Happy November! We hope this blog post finds you well and getting excited for the upcoming holiday season! All of us here are still buzzing after last weeks massive New York Reunion! It was an incredible gathering of campers from New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, DC, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles! And it was amazing to have BIG time Alums, Godnick and Kaufman join us for the festivities! We played soccer, football, and dodgeball, had some great New York Pizza, handed out the 2019 yearbook, and hooked everyone up with the limited edition 2020 Reunion T-Shirt. Check out the photos below. And FYI, we have our Boston Reunion on January 5th, all are welcome, near and far. For further details, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
November also brought us Camp T-Shirt day! It was so great to see everyone representing the ‘Bou across the world. Thank you to everyone that participated in this fun event. However, we feel like everyday is Camp T-Shirt Day – LETS GO!
