Return From Exile
After too long an absence, the beloved Gaga Pit has returned home to Camp Blue Star. Over the past two years, because of the construction projects at the Hess school, the Pit was vanished to the cage behind the Shaner school. It was stacked in the field behind the shed. I would drive by to check on it from time to time, only to find it being over taken by vicious vines and wicked weeds. Sometimes I would see tears falling from the sides of the pit, (to be truthful, it could have been rain water draining), but, both the Gaga pit and myself missed the children’s screams of excitement and laughter. If you have been to Camp Blue Star in the past you know it is the game that campers love, and talk about. If you’ve never been to camp, it is a game that needs to be played to be appreciated. Bringing it back to the Hess School is one of the first signs of the rebirth of Camp Blue Star and the return to a kind of normal world. The Gaga pit looks a little lonely and will need some work before camp starts, but I can tell it is happy to be home and longing to be filled with campers scurrying about.
We are still excepting campers for this summer, and registration is available at campbluestar.org or call 609-476-6311 for more information.
