This has been another awesome week at Camp Jefferson! Week seven was filled with a lot of laughs and excitement.
Monday was filled with a few intense games, including the crowd favorites like dodgeball and handball.
On Tuesday, our campers hopped on the bus to Dutch Springs. The day was filled with a lot of climbing, jumping and swimming. All this exercise made Wednesday morning a little tiring.

During week six at Camp Cementon, students experienced a rainy week but were still able to make it an enjoyable one. Monday started off with a little bit of free time in the morning and quickly transitioned into indoor competitive games, such as Four Square, Silent Ball, Night at the Museum and more. Periodic breaks of no rain throughout the day led the campers to be able to enjoy an outdoor game of Pac-Man. After lunch time, the campers remained indoors to watch “Zootopia” and enjoyed popcorn along with the movie.
As another week at Camp Jefferson commences, it is custom to reflect upon the events of our previous week. Week six may have been the biggest emotional roller coaster for campers and counselors alike.
