It’s a Girl’s World

I stumbled upon Kalalla almost unwittingly. I had no idea, when I decided to accompany my friend that summer, that it would be the best decision I ever made. I had never been to a sleep-away camp before, and I agreed somewhat hesitantly. As someone who struggles with anxiety, I have trouble with new places and new people. I spent that first bus trip swimming in a sea of trepidation and excitement. I was so far out of my element, but the joy and enthusiasm…

Wakefield Roads

This blog post is a set of lyrics written by our one and only Treble and her unit from 2015. Sang to the tune of Country Roads by John Denver.

Camping at Kalalla

I am a camper at Kalalla and I have been going there for 4 years. My favourite things about camp are crafts, DT (discovery time), swimming, and archery. I like crafts because you can make whatever you want or you can do the craft that is planned for the day.

Kalalla Girls Don’t Hibernate

So every year around this time, it starts to feel like winter has been going on forEVER! We all complain about the snow and cold, and wish for summer days when we can be out in nature again. But Kalalla girls are tough. We don’t hibernate, even while we dream of hot days at summer camp. We head outside to play and have fun in the snow and on the ice. And what fun we have! A couple of weeks ago, I went to Winterlude…

Kalalla To Me – Through the Eyes of a Camper

Camp Kalalla… It doesn’t matter if you’ve been coming for years, or if you’re new, we are all one big family. Camp has become such a big part of my life, I have made so many unforgettable memories. From swimming, to geocaching, sleeping in canoes, to late night talks around the sizzling fire, camp will always have a special place in my heart. Ever since I was seven, I’ve made it my duty to come to Kalalla each year. For the fun I have with…
