Somewhere over the rainbow is one place to call home.

I never want to leave

Five week's is too short for this grand land

Five hundred Acers of pristine wilderness

Filled with one hundred foot trees, crystal clear rivers

Small creeks no ones seen

Open meadows with long green grass swaying in the wind

Where we gallop on horseback until the sun sets.

Somewhere over the rainbow is Bar 717.



Somewhere over the rainbow there's a barn filled with horses.

At six in the morning the smell of fresh hey wakes you up

You walk down Barn Hill to be greeted by horses

Working with big and small, all different color horses

Until the breakfast bell rings.

You leave for a while, but some back to ride

All afternoon you ride to remote places.

Somewhere over the rainbow is Bar 717.



Somewhere over the rainbow is The Horse Homestead.

Ride an hour through wood and creeks

To a hill overlooking Emily's cabin, and your new home for a week.

You have to cook your own food, build a fence to keep the bears out, fix a water system so you can drink. Sometimes hide in the corn fields, and watch the clouds drift by-it sounds hard, but it's the best place at camp.

Somewhere over the rainbow is Bar 717.



Somewhere over the rainbow are campfires.

Every Saturday we gather in a huge circle

You're surrounded by your friends and happiness

In the center is a campfire whose smoke drifts up to the starry night and thousands of stars and the Milky Way

It's the last thing you see before you drift off to sleep.

Somewhere over the rainbow is Bar 717.



Somewhere over the rainbow is dancing.

We dance dances that people would run from-country line dances

But yet they are what we live for

When we are dancing we don't care what people think, just how high you can kick.

Somewhere over the rainbow is Bar 717.



Somewhere over the rainbow is a swim hole.

Crystal clear water filled with fish and turtles, tiny rapids to float down and ricks to sit and watch on

Huge inner tubes to play on

A shady oak tree on the bank to rest and play cards under.

Somewhere over the rainbow is Bar 717.



Somewhere over the rainbow there are swim rides.

If you work in the barn and you are a good rider you get to ride bareback to Girl's Camp and swim. We gallop the whole way back, past huge pine trees and singing birds .

Somewhere over the rainbow is Bar 717.



Somewhere over the rainbow is Vespers.

You walk on a trail out to Inspiration Point, stop and smell the vanilla tree and then are quiet until your back at camp

We sit in a circle on Inspiration Point

People sing and share poems any art work they have done.

Somewhere over the rainbow is Bar 717.



Somewhere over the rainbow there are overnights.

Sometimes you walk or ride to an overnight spot

No matter how you get there they are always fun

You can go anywhere in camp with as many as fourteen people

Overnights are where things happen that become great memories

Somewhere over the rainbow is Bar 717.



Somewhere over the rainbow are lightning storms.

Once a year nature puts on an amazing show of its power

On Inspiration Point we sit and watch the lighting strikes over the mountains

The heavens turn yellow, red, and purple

This is smoothing that would frighten most people at home, at camp it's peaceful and amazing, you don't want to leave the show, but its after dark and you have to find the rail back to camp.

Somewhere over the rainbow is Bar 717.



Somewhere over the rainbow is a harvest festival.

It starts in a garden filled with flowers and vegetables

We sing and tell stories kind of like Vespers

After we march up to Friendship Hill and the fun begins

There are booths to play games, a grease pole, and much more

The most famous is "The Mud Pit." It's big and full of mud!

As horrid as it may sound it's so much fun, and even better to push someone in or to be pushed in.

Somewhere over the rainbow is Bar 717.



Somewhere over the rainbow is a place to call home.

People come back year after year

To a familiar place, that always has something new

No matter how it changes, for the good or for the bad

I know I'm always going back.

Somewhere over the rainbow is Bar 717.

burning_ice_4_u8:39pm:

post from earlier today..thought it was relevant


21 Reasons i wish i was at camp right now:

 

~Ollie <3
~All the awesome people i never see anywhere else
~back massages
~no school
~never being without someone to hang out with...ever
~borrowing everyone's clothes
~the weather there always makes my hair and skin look better...no clue why
~yummy food
~people just don't judge you like at school... its so much easier to be who you are
~river walks
~jumping off huge bolders into the river
~the ropes course
~overnights
~having access to a seemingly endless supply of hemp, beads, clay (and pottery wheels), paint, silkscreening supplies and all sorts of other fun crafty stuff
~blackberries
~taking crazy amounts of pictures...though i do that here a lot too
~dances
~harvest festival
~kidknapping people/getting kidknapped
~camp songs
~its just so damn cool, shown nicely by the fact that before i started making the list, i titled it: "10 reasons i wish..."


 ~doesn't it look like the postcards they always use?

comment if u miss 717 or want to add to the list, there's always more to add...

h20polo241:07pm: my bday wish
i know this will never ever happen. but i decided that it is my birthday wish. for my birthday, in stead of going somewhere or doing something with my friends at home, i want to see ALL of my camp friends. all at once, like a big reunion. and just no drama, just talking and remembering all the good times we have had over all of the years. that would make my year. hmmmmm too bad something that cool could never ever happen...
