“It’s not what I expected. It’s better!”

arrival04By bus, car and plane.  Beginning at 6:00 in the morning in New York City and continuing throughout the morning and afternoon in Willsboro, campers have arrived at their summer home:  Pok-O-MacCready Camps.

“Indeed I am,” proclaimed Luca when asked if he was psyched to be back.  In his seventh and final summer as a camper Luca is “looking forward to the hiking and ‘adventuring’.”  When asked the same question (“how happy are you to be back”), Remi was more direct:  “What do you think?”

While a return to camp marks a reunion of sorts (see the many photos below), it’s a braarrival15nd new beginning for first-time campers.  “It’s not what I expected,” said Samantha, “it’s better!”  Leonard was most taken by the appearance:  “It’s beautiful.  I just love this whole countryside!”

Of course, getting back to Pok-O-MacCready has been just as fun for the parents who dropped their children off.  “I always get the same feeling driving down here,” said Michael, who was a camper and counselor in the 1970’s and 80’s.  “And it’s even better now seeing that look in my kid’s eyes!”

While a full summer of activities await the campers, second year boy’s intermediate Dan C probably put the essence of camp into the keenest perspective.  “I’m most looking forward to seeing old friends.  And making new ones!”
