2017 Mid-Season Update

August 13, 2017

Time flies when you’re having fun!

As we get ready for our last camp of the season, Camp Promise-West, we’re overcome with memories of Camp Promise-East and Camp Promise-Rockies. It’s been an incredible summer with so many returning campers and staff, as well as many new faces who quickly became friends.

We’ve been busy trying lots of new things and logging a bunch of Firsts. We pulled pranks and swam until our skin got wrinkly. We pet goats, horses, ponies and dogs, and we danced and sang to our hearts’ content at prom. The bottom line is that everyone has been having fun all summer long!

Camp (so far) By Numbers

  • 65 campers
  • 108 staff
  • 12 days of camp
  • 6 different theme days
  • 26 approved pranks
  • 42 belly flops (and 2 belly flop champions)
  • Countless rumors in the Rumor Box
  • 2 proms, 2 casino nights, 2 scavenger hunts, 2 talent shows, 1 campfire (we hate it when there’s a burn ban!), and 1 very messy Kangaroo Court.

Camp Promise-West

As we head to CPW in a just over a week, we’re looking forward to welcoming 29 campers and 55 staff. We have a lot of fun planned, including pontoon boating, canoeing, panning for gold, a zombie apocalypse, a luau, a drive-in movie, a talent show, and a Bollywood-themed prom.

It’s not too late to join the fun; we have a few 1:1 counselor and program positions open, so please contact us ASAP if you’re available! And for those who can’t be with us in person, you can follow our adventures on our Camp Promise-West Facebook page as we’ll be posting photos all week long.

And, if you can’t join us at camp, you can still follow the camp magic from the comfort of your own couch. Check out our Facebook photos from CPE2017 and CPR2017 and follow us on Instagram.
