Adam's Summer Updates

Roasted!!!

Greetings from Camp! Last night was our first cabin cookout.   On Monday nights, cabin groups head into the woods to designated cookout sites to cook their dinners over an open fire.  Now when we cook over an open fire here at Nebagamon, we are not talking about hot dogs on a stick, we are talking…

The Honeymooners….

In the last update, I really enjoyed sharing so much about all of the STUFF we do at camp, and the wonderful opportunities created by all of the choices we offer at Nebagamon.  But truth be told, to me, as much as I love all our programming here, camp is just as much, and probably…

What’ll it be today?

Yesterday was a picture perfect camp day.  Weather wise, things could not have been more ideal.  With temperatures in the mid 70’s, and crystal clear sunshine, it was the kind of day that is the setting in all of our minds when we think SUMMER.  All of our activity areas, from the waterfront to the…

Fast Friends

Greetings from Camp! If you have been a regular reader of these updates for the past 15 years, you will know what to expect today, the day after the first full day of camp.  Without a doubt, I will touch on how I am really surprised about how quickly the boys seem to have become…

There can be little doubt that during the month of May, when Briggs, Fornear, and I are up at camp without anyone else around, it is a particularly beautiful and refreshing place.  Long isolated walks through the camp are a highlight of that time of year and we all truly enjoy them. But we all know something is off…

The Gang’s All Here!

Greetings from Camp! Just a quick note to let you know that all of the buses have arrived at camp safe and sound! There were some delays because of weather, but as ever, it all worked out…. I am headed down to the Rec Hall for some classic first night spaghetti! Will write more later.…

Run in the lake

It used to be that I would say that the most powerful moment of any summer was the Keylog ceremony during the final Council Fire of the summer. Who could possibly argue that the power of heartfelt and tear laden words, shared by a camper on his last night as a camper, are not the…

Update Ode to Staff

If there is such a thing as a signature Nebagamon event, it was last night. We held our annual Chef’s Cap competition, an outdoor cooking competition. Basically, it is the culminating event for some of the skills that the boys have been working on all summer. Whether down at CNOC, out on the trail, or…
