Session 1 is underway. What an amazing group of staff. Arrival day went smoothly, even though mother nature did not cooperate bringing rain and cold weather to camp.

Today is the last day of the 2015 Pre-Camp training. We had an amazing week getting ready for the arrival of the campers. Our 2015 team has come from around the world, but has meshed into an amazing supportive and talented team. Last night we had an Air Band challenge - each cabin's act was amazing. 

The winner of the Slice of Merrywood is MOOSE!

We have been treated to some wonderful sunsets and early morning fog these past 2 days. Lots of rain. Good for the garden and for doing prep work for camp.

A beautiful quiet morning at Merrywood before the rest of the L-Team is up.

I hope everyone got  a chance to support Tim Horton's Camp Day. Another great camping organization.

Yesterday the L-Team arrived at Merrywood! The 2015 camping season has begun. Lots of cleaning, sorting and emptying the Question Mark room took place. We took advantage of the  new storage room that Jacques built this winter. We now have tons of room in the Question Mark room. Unfortunately Emily's desk is now covered with stuff. 


On my first night there was a beautiful rainbow over the Rideau. What a great start to the summer. 


Just a reminder - please complete the online Health & Safety Course prior to arriving at camp. Click here for the link.
