Dear Camp Talooli Staff
For the first time in over a decade I missed Staff Training. I'm doing the adult thing, working in a different state.

I never thought I'd miss camp so much!

Have a wonderful summer. Enjoy this time. It will be over before you know it.

And take care of my waterfront. I miss it.

Extreme Home Makeover
I'm not sure if anyone even uses this community anymore, but a post is long overdue in my opinion...

So I definitely pushed for an Extreme Home Makeover video for two years. Mark, I know you thought it was a crazy idea, but I wanted it in a week as a theme, and guess what? They just re-did a summer camp tonight. Not sure if they'd do another one, but if we ever want that new dining hall, I vote we try for a video next summer. Any thoughts?

So I got my letter today, saying that I'm going to be an Official Talooli Camp Counselor. I've waited three summers for this, so this is awesome.

Can I expect to see any of you guys there at Staff Training Week?

--Tory, former CIT, soon to be counselor!

hey guys...

Just wanted to say, looks like next week I am going to give 6 minute or so speech in my public speaking class. And my topic is summer camp. Just wanted to know if anyone had any nifty ideas for me to incorporate...

Hope the fall is treating everyone well. Looking forward to next year, and hopefully seeing more of you this winter!

It's coming soon!
Well, the time is near at hand. We are all coming home from college, wrapping up school wherever we may be. And those of us who will work are actively looking forward to another summer at the Happy Gathering Place.

What I want to know is, any good ideas out there? About anything? I mean, Jeff and I will ask about programing during staff training, and we can pick the brains of the new staff, but I would love an opportunity for us here at livejournal to discuss program ideas for camp.

So it's an open challenge. Be it a theme week idea you think would be phenomenal, a yea or nay on a week we did last year or some imporvement upon those, or just a random thought you think might work at camp, please, comment. This includes everyone, so just cause you aren't working doesn't mean you can't comment. Come on, do it for Wild! ;)

I know I tried this in winter sometime, but I think we can all more clearly think of camp now that summer is basically upon us. And I know Justine posted a question about the theme weeks, but I will list them again. Here's what we did last year:
1- luau
5-Wild Wild West
6-Mardis Gras
7-Winter Wonderland.

Here's a few of the themes I plan on working on this year-
Mardi Gras (you should see the beads I have!), Pirate (of course, although I am missing my curly pirate locks), Olympic (cause of the Athens games this summer), and I would like to see some sort of History/Talooli Timeline week cause of the historic year.

I have a few other ideas, but nothing concrete behind them like I do those. Now people, what are your thoughts?

Something Great
I'm the most computer-illerite person on the planet, but I managed to make something great while procrastinating on finals. I think you can only view it for another 10 days or so. It's a cute little photo show that I made of camp last summer. just go here: http://www.photoshow.net/scripts/new_build/new_player.php?show=bAxaLsLic

I hope you all enjoy. This was fun :-)

So no one has updated in here for awhile, so I will do so

Strange I am updating this and not giving my actual lj any love. But it is camp

Anyways just wanted to say that I enjoy walking around late night here in New Orleans humming the Camp Fire law to myself and thinking of new theme weeks for camp...

any ideas for new weeks we can use people?

Hey hey, who's Wild Mark?
Oh, I think that is me!!!


Just entering a delayed entry here, with the Temalo Pirate captain himself updating....

So for one, I really miss camp. I realize part of the reason I embraced my fraternity is becaus of the potential for a camp like atmosphere, i.e. close knit, spend a lot of time togetehr, and goof off alot type of thing. It definitely hasn't worked out like camp, but I ain't complaining...

As much as one looks for a place like Camp Talooli, I have never found one...
