The gates opened up and the Kampers flooded in. It had been about 9 months too long since Kampers had set foot in K-West, but on June 3rd that all changed!
Although our staff had been hard at work for two weeks before the kids arrived, I think it's safe to say we all agree that Kamp just isn't the same without the Kampers!
We laughed, we cleaned and we prayed over all that this summer holds, and then started counting down the minutes till we could welcome the Kampers!
Just a short while after we opened the K-west gates, the Kampers started flooding in and we couldn't have been more thrilled to embrace them with open arms!
Opening Day is always a whirlwind of fun and excitement as new Kampers get to see a glimpse of everything their next two weeks will be filled with, and for returning Kampers it is a great time to say hi to old friends and come back to a place that has such great memories!
For the first few hours Kampers are arriving, the counselor's are busy helping everyone get settled in to their cabins and making sure everyone is present and accounted for. Next on the agenda is the famous opening day picnic of burgers and Maui chips, a K-West favorite for sure!
Once everyone's bellies are full, the Kampers head back to the cabins to brush their teeth and then get ready for. . . K-LIFE!
We couldn't be more excited to have each and every Kamper here with us this summer and we are ready to have the time of our lives this summer!
