Greetings from SLC!
There’s electricity in the air today as all of camp prepares for the All Camp Show! Campers on both sides of camp have been working tirelessly all session learning lines and songs, rehearsing blocking, building sets, programming lighting and sound cues, and designing costumes. The whole camp is abuzz with excitement to gather at the Eddie Cantor Theater this evening after dinner to view the two performances.
Mainside will be putting on a special camp edition of Grease, while Teenside will be performing Bye Bye Birdie. Both classics promise to be SLC hits remembered for many summers to come!
In addition to the wonderful performances, there are lots of special moments of recognition during the intermission between shows this evening. There will be the presenting of awards – the Alumni honoree award for recognition of major contributions to camp, the MACHO award given to Mainside campers who exemplify the spirit of MACHO – My Actions Can Help Others, the leadership award given to recognize the leadership of two Teenside campers, and the Jeff Herman awards for leadership and sportsmanship in Sports Specialty. Additionally, camp will be giving out 5 year camper sweatshirts, 6, 7, & 8 year camper pins and jerseys, and 5 and 10 year staff jackets. In addition to all of the joyous moments honoring those members of our camp community who have given us so much, alumni, campers, and staff, we’re all looking forward to ice cream and ices at intermission, as always!
Stay tuned for further updates from our last week of the summer here at Surprise Lake Camp!
