Day one of Rock Camp is in the books.
Today was Make New Friends Monday.
I made some new friends.
I got to be part of the Skit Players and we did some improv on behaviors in a group. That did not suck. I’ll get to do that every morning!
I listed to some seriously cool women do a workshop on more seriously cool women in Rock. I have so many new people to look up and listen to.
We formed 10 new bands.
TEN NEW BANDS YA’LL!!!
I’m a Band Manager. Which really means I get to help keep us on track, be support staff for our Band Counselor (the one with the music knowledge who steers the ship) and be all around cheerleader. I dig it.
My band is *as of today called the Whatevers. or just Whatever. They are all Flats (8-11 yrs) the Sharps (12-17) are all divided into their own bands. Flats & Sharps. I giggle at how delightful the whole thing is.
What else…OH! WE HAVE A CAMP SONG!
A for real, legit camp song that includes a rap.
OH WE WROTE A RAP TODAY! A RAP ABOUT DONUTS!!! SHUT YOUR MOUTH NO YOU SHUT UP WE TOTALLY DID!
I should be more tired than I actually am. I did drive home in complete silence…because 50 campers are like WOAH for 8 hours. On my way home I hit the store for my workshop supplies, came home and threw together a quick pizza and salad dinner, debriefed with Mark and started putting the finishing touches on tomorrow’s workshop. I’ve got to get there extra early tomorrow to set up our mongo coffee machine.
Camp staff needs coffee. ALL DAY LONG.
I’m still processing the day, but I will tell you this:
Make New Friends Monday was not a lie.
