On the very last night of each camp session the counselors put on a staff show. Crouch Hall was packed to over flowing with campers and staff. Abode was a rush of activity with staff preparing for their skits or songs.
After an entirely fun show, a wishboat ceremony took place on the beach. Each camper had prepared a wishboat (a plate with their written wish and candle attached). Once the candle was lit, the camper put their wishboat into the water. It was such a sight and an emotional end to their summer stay at camp.
Don't know that the campers were all aware, but a few counselors would be in the water quietly gathering the plates once the candles went out. Yes, we were also environmentally aware.
