Home Visits: Eli & Lucas

Eric and I got to hang out with a new camper this past week…Eli is a current 4th grader, and will be a Lower Inter Boy at camp this summer.  He lives in Philadelphia and goes to school at Friends Select, and in the past few summers he’s been splitting time at the beach and day camp, but he’s excited for his first summer at Canadensis!  He’s done some camp overnights before, so he is ready to leave the day camp behind and have 4 weeks of non-stop action.

Eli has a younger sister and brother, and when we visited they had just gotten back from Disney World, where they had conquered just about every ride!  He enjoys pretty much everything we have to offer at camp.  During the school year, he especially likes tennis and skiing.  He’s skiied most of the slopes in the Poconos, so he should be able to learn to waterski pretty quickly this summer!  Eli is also a guitar player, and will be bringing one to camp with him this summer…I can’t wait to hear him play.  He also happens to be a Yankees fan, so we will be cheering together at morning line-up when the pinstripes have a great game this summer!

Another new Friends Select student is coming to camp this summer too!  Lucas is in 4th grade and will be a Lower Inter Boy for the first time this summer, but Camp Canadensis is a family tradition for him!  His mom was a Canadensis camper, and he is really looking forward to his first summer around Lake Lenape.
Lucas has two younger brothers, and he loves baseball above all else.  He also enjoys playing tennis and soccer and looks forward to trying out lacrosse at camp.  Most of all, he can’t wait to try out the hondas motorbikes and do the lake activities this summer…we can’t wait to see him zooming around the lake and trails!
