A Letter from Camp Tecumseh

One of the 367,810 reasons why I love to send my kids to Camp Tecumseh is because the counselor's take time to write a letter to parents, summarizing their campers experiences of the week. I think this is so cool! Here is the letter we received from Nick's counselor, after his week at Camp:

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Kubatski,

Greetings from Camp Tecumseh where the stars shine bright, the leaves are green, and the brotherhood of Ottawa Cabin grows strong with each passing day. The "Ottabros" engulfed themselves in Camp T culture this week with the crazy campfires, the traditional baked oatmeal, and the Blazer unit which has been going strong since the beginning of time.

Nick was quite the active athletic in the mornings as he participated in his clinics. He had flag football, basketball, and water polo. Nick had a blast with Jared in flag football and liked being able to cool off in the pool for water polo after two clinics in the heat!

Afternoons brought the cabin back together as the Ottabros did activities as a group each afternoon and night. Nick got to swim at either the pool or lake every day for unit swim time. On top of that, we had extra blob time at the lake on the trampolines and we swam at the pool Wednesday and Thursday night! When Nick wasn't swimming, he was playing fun games like tennis, baseball, circle rules football, or carpetball - all great activities.

It was great to welcome Nick to the Ottabro family this week at camp! He is an extremely nice kid and fun to talk to. As a third year camper, he was able to help spread the camp culture to others who were experiencing Tecumseh for the first time. Nick always had a positive attitude and was helpful at meal times. His helpfulness will be missed and I hope he has a great school year and hope to see him back next summer!

God bless,

P.S. "Georgia, Georgia, we have peches!!"
