Award Season

MacBanquet05Camp MacCready’s Session #2 banquet was held Wednesday evening. 2014 marks the first time that a separate banquet was held for each session.  Some of the players may have been different, but the game was the same as awards were given out for class/activity participation, performance and attitude; special wilderness and riding awards, and much more.

Every camper received an award for Years at MacCready, where the gifts ranged from patches and pins, to paddles and blankets.  In one of the evening’s more emotional moments, Jenna Z, having outstayed all of the awards, was given a standing ovation to mark her 12th year as a camper.  MacBanquet04

Each section also named their 2014 MacCready M– the counselors pick for camper excellence,  and Pok-O-MacCready’s highest award:  Honor Camper winners.  “I was quite surprised when they were walking towards me (to be brought to the front of the hall),” said Lili, Highlander section Honor Camper.  “I wasn’t quite sure what was going on, but when I got to the front it hit me; so, I am very happy”

“When I first came to camp,” said Lodge section Honor Camper Graciela, “I was a bit sad, and I missed home.  NMacBanquet10ow, I love camp, and my friends, and I am glad!”

The banquet dinner featured chicken cordon bleu with vegetables, potatoes, rolls and dessert brownies. The evening ceremony concluded with an emotional candlelight song parade.

The boy’s camp holds it’s banquet Thursday.
