Summer Memories

Gopher Cabin

I figured it had been a  while and that an update was due on here. I am between trips right now and just doing laundry after a nice and relaxing weekend home to Minnesota and weekend up north at Camp Lincoln for the 2nd annual Brownie “Lucky Me”  Cote Run. First, let me just say that it felt so great to be back at Camp after this many years. Arriving and getting my cabin assignment just like when I was a camper is always fun. For this weekend, I had all of Gopher Cabin to myself. This was a nice perk but it was also a little shocking to think that that last time I was in that cabin was 1991. To add more to the insult to feeling old, several of the current staff talked about starting as campers in 2008. Now that’s a wake up call that life moved pretty fast.

After the shocking realization that I am getting older quicker than I thought, it was time for the 5k race and the 8-mile around Lake Hubert Run on Saturday morning. Now, not being a runner, I stuck with the 5k along with Mom and Dad but it was fun to see people excited to do both. This was my second 5k, my first being the Castaway Cay 5k in April, and I am pretty proud of how it went. After the race, it was a nice relaxing afternoon around camp with amazing weather that was perfect for just reading and enjoying a nice walk around memory lane.

Memories of nine amazing summers at Camp Lincoln. I guess looking back on it while walking around camp and coming across some of the sailing awards I helped win for camp, I did accomplish a lot at camp. One of the other unique things that I loved about this weekend and talking with fellow campers from several different generations is that the core values and ideals of camp haven’t changed. Camp is still the same amazing experience today as it was in 1909. Thanks to everyone who continues to carry on the tradition for all of the future campers that may come to the shore of Lake Hubert. It really is a special place. I will officially post this on here that if it was for Camp Lincoln, I would not be in the job or where I am today. Camp really is a special place.

For those camp friends that are reading this, let’s all plan to come back to the shores of Lake Hubert for the 105th reunion next year along with eh 3rd annual Brownie “Lucky Me” Cote Run! CFAB
