Friday’s with Franky: Camp Through Your Eyes
Do you have any favorite memories from your time at Camp WeHaKee? I know I sure do! Hi Friends – Franky the camp dog here, to fill you in on what some of my friends have to say about our time together.
Over the years I’ve had the amazing opportunity to meet SO many girls. I may be an iconic part of camp (I know, I’m famous…) but girls remember many other parts of camp for years to come. I love the camp community because it is a place where everyone feels like they belong. Whether you’re from a different country, have brown hair, blue eyes, or have 4 legs and a tail, all are welcome! There are many reasons to love Camp WeHaKee, so let’s see what other’s have to say!
Peg says, “I spent every summer here starting in fourth grade, became a kitchen maid, CIT, Counselor, assistant program director with Tisha Bolger then graduated from college and started a career. Now as an old lady I remember my camp days as some of the best days with fellowship like no other. I am sure it has changed and yet the charm remains. Have a wonderful season! Tell me the Indian Princess still takes her Canoe ride at night, please say that tradition was kept.” Wow, from fourth grade all the way to assistant program director? Thank you Peg for your contribution to the Camp WeHaKee legacy. You deserve a commemorative high-paw! (Dog form of a high-five :] )
Then there are always the campers reminiscing about their time at Camp that say things like “it’s my home away from home” or “Camp WeHaKee is a part of my most fond childhood memories”. Well, Emily and Ericka we loved having you here at Camp and making memories is what we’re all about. Even the Mom’s, the one’s most reluctant to send their daughter away say “I sent my 8 year old for the 1st time last year. This was her 1st overnight camp and she was a little home sick when she got back. But then, 2 days later, [she] asked if she could go to the 4 week [camp]. She was happy healthy and made new friends.” Well MiMi, being friendly is a requirement here at Camp. I am the official greeter and tail-wagger and take pride in making sure all the girls are friendly and smell good from the very start.
