At Rockmont one of the ways we spell fun is, F.U.N.N!
(Functional Understanding Not Necessary.)
This definition has been lived out this week as the campers run, jump, play, and laugh! After a summer without camp it has been wonderful to hear the laughter of campers ring throughout Rockmont again.
Growth is in Rockmont’s DNA as we invite boys and young men into new challenges, and the experience of F.U.N.N. and joy is equally important. Joy, “the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying; keen pleasure; elation,” happens all the time at camp.
It happens as campers are enveloped in an atmosphere that is built to encourage and inspire their sense of wonder and welcome.
The “keen pleasure” is a result of being part of something bigger than themselves. Camp wouldn’t be much fun or interesting without the teamwork that the cabin and tribal community provides. Jumping off the high dive for the first time is great.
Jumping off the high dive for the first time while your tribe cheers you on is “something exceptionally good and satisfying!”
Today the campers enjoyed a morning of skills and an afternoon of tribal activities.
Even though we had a little rain and thunder, the outdoor fun continued after we got the all clear. The evening activity was a free swim, and we ended the day with the first Evening Watch of the summer. “My Roots Grow Down” is one of the campers favorites.
We hope that each of your sons grow deep roots at Rockmont!
