I hope you enjoy the latest from our guest blogger, Senior Counselor Danny Alonso.
July 13 marked the age-old Timanous tradition of Beach Day. After breakfast,
campers, counselors, nurses, cooks, and everyone else packed into buses and made
the 45 minute journey to Maine’s famous Scarborough Beach State Park. The weather was perfect, the ocean a clear and beautiful blue, and the beach nearly empty; we knew it was going to be a fantastic day.
Some campers spent hours in the ocean jumping waves. Whenever the largest wave
came through, everyone would yell “party wave!” with enthusiasm. Many spent the morning building large sand castles to compete for a candy prize.
When everyone returned to camp, the Timanous community took to the docks to wash
off any lingering sand. Though exhausted from a day full of activity, campers were all very happy with the way 2022’s Beach Day turned out. Beach Day is an
interesting contradiction: While it is the only day of the summer where not a single
camper is within the camp's borders, it is also wholly representative of the Timanous
spirit. It is one of our oldest traditions at camp, representing the continuity we
emphasize, and beach day is the perfect day to find unity in body, mind and spirit. But
above all, we’re all having fun together, and it is always a special day for all!
