Camper Registration is Open!

{{unknown}}Hi Kalalla friends, This is just a reminder that registration is open! All you need to do is go here to find all the forms and information you need to sign up for another great year at camp! I so wish I was going to be heading to camp this year. I was watching a TV show and the episode was called “Boom De Yah Da”. It made me so camp sick. For those of you that don’t have a plane ride between you and the…

Salutations

Hi all, Sorry for the lack of posting! The last three weekends have been crazy with family birthdays/Mother’s day celebrations, and I haven’t been able to take the time to sit down to write in much too long.

My grandmother, Gribbet was camp nurse for many years. My aunts Jellybean and Yogi were campers and then staff. My mom, Stitch, was a counselor and a craft resource person.
