“I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all. The woods do that to you, they always look familiar, long lost..like an old dream, like a piece of forgotten song drifting across the water, most of all like golden eternities of past childhood..and the clouds as they pass overhead seem to testify (by their own lonesome familiarity) to this feeling.” -Kerouac

Excited to welcome back Erin & Emily for the summer! You'll find them on the waterfront all #summer long! #HumansOfChignachgook #campstaff #camppros #summeriscoming #countdowntocamp #optoutside #choosecamp

From Erin: "I am most looking forward to being back on beautiful lake George! The waterfront is easily my favorite spot at camp. I can’t wait to spend my entire summer down there sailing and waterskiing in the bay and seeing kids learn or better their skills!
It’s hard to pick a favorite memory from teaching classes at the waterfront because they are all so amazing. There’s nothing better than taking out the sonar, my favorite boat, on a windy day and going to the other side of the lake. Another favorite is seeing my campers get up on waterskis for the first time. It is one of the coolest feelings and to be able to share that experience with so many campers is amazing.
I am so excited to be a part of the campfire skits! Being introduced to the theme of the session as a camper was one of my favorite things to watch, so I can’t wait to be on the other side of things and make each theme very exciting for all the campers!" From Emily: "I can’t wait to be back out on Lake George and to learn the magic behind running the best part of camp: the waterfront!! I am so excited to take on this new role at camp and have the privilege to be able to spend all my time there. The waterfront is 100% my favorite spot at camp...the view from the docks seriously never gets old!
One of my favorite memories from teaching a waterfront skill class was during sailing (surprise surprise) this past summer. It was a super windy day, and Hank and I got to take a group of 6 or 7 campers out on my favorite Rainbow, the Black Pearl. We ended up being able to sail all the way around Dome Island and back before the skill class period was over. It was really exciting to be able to give the kids in our boat that experience!!! I’m so excited to be in the theme skits this summer!! As a camper, and even as a counselor I always thought they were so fun to watch. Being able to participate in them is going to be a great new experience!! I’m also excited to be able to help with program”

“It's a funny thing coming home. Nothing changes. Everything looks the same, feels the same, even smells the same. You realize what's changed, is you.” -Eric Roth

Welcome back Brian! #HumansOfChingachgook "I can't wait to be back in the SBU for Summer 2018! I am looking forward to s'mores at Senior Point, perfecting my half-court shot (not that I've ever missed), and Taco Tuesdays! I will also be participating in Polar Bear Club as much as I can! I think the thing I am most looking forward to, however, would have to be Color Wars. I have yet to experience the new Green vs. Gold format, and it looked off the chain last year! To whichever color is opposing me, I wish them luck, because they are going to need it.
I think my favorite memory as a camper would either have to be the Batman-Dark Knight theme of 2012 or picking up and learning how to play a guitar for the first time! I play guitar every day now, but I received my best lessons at Camp.

To the campers and Staff this summer, I give my personal guarantee that every day will be more outrageous, spontaneous, and fun-filled than the last. I promise to push everyone to their maximum potential, and make the most out of every meal, activity, campfire, and friendship that I come across this summer!" #campstaff #living10for2 #summercamp #camppros #optoutside #choosecamp #countdowntocamp #chingachgookkids

Just a little reminder that despite mother nature’s attempt to convince us otherwise, it does eventually get warm in #upstate #NY 😂😂😂 (but seriously enough with the snow already!) #doublefreeswim #countdowntosummer #countdowntocamp #living10for2 #lakegeorgephotos #lakegeorgeny #adks #buddycheck #ifihavemy440 #waterfront #ropeswing #optoutside #choosecamp #swimming #chingachgookkids #bluebirdday
