Finally! Camp Unleashed!

September 29, 2011

We arrived at camp Thursday afternoon.  It was so wonderful to see this sign welcoming us!  (Don’t judge the photography – I was shooting while driving.)

The banner has the Camp Unleashed logo.

First things first.  We checked in, got our cabin assignment and unpacked.  Doncha love my NASCAR sheets?  I thought they’d be appropriate for camp in North Carolina.  Thanks to Bosslady’s son for the loan!

I can't remember the last time I slept in a bunk bed!

Our first official gathering took place that afternoon.  Everyone was told to bring leashed dogs, but after going over the rules we were able to lose the leashes!  This picture was taken just after the unleashing.  We were instructed to walk around the field so that our dogs would follow us and not just run off into the woods.

Meeting new friends

There were a few dogs that ran off throughout the course of the weekend, but all were recovered quickly.  Every once in a while you’d hear a logistic team member’s walkie talkie crackle with something along the lines of “Keep an eye out for Smoochie.  He’s wandered off again.”

After the initial playtime in the field we split into smaller groups for our first hike.  Chloe did wonderfully (did you expect anything less?).  She’d run loops into the woods, but she always checked in before running off again.  I’m glad we worked so hard on our recall exercises.  It paid off!

Mama, dis heaven?

      In bed snuggled with me! Although it was a little bit crowded being just a narrow bunk. Next year I might think about bringing a dog bed for her to use while sleeping.
