Legs_O_HenryCalumet is a much different kind of place on a Friday as compared to a Monday. Campers get connected, find their niche, and catch on that Calumet is a place where one can be oneself. Check out some feedback from Calumet campers. They come from all over!!

Puddle Jumping

Puddle_Jumping_0_00_45-07In the late afternoon, the clouds came rolling in and the rain came.  But it came very fast and ended soon after it started. The hot, humid day turned into a pleasant afternoon -- and there were puddles everywhere. Leave it to Girls Cabin 7 to make the most of the wonderful and messy puddles!! Check it out!

Jesus Speaks to Us

Written by Knute Ogren on Wednesday, 13 July 2011

Tolland_BoysToday's theme at Calumet -- Jesus Speaks to Us.  Pr. Dave Dalzell from Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Laconia is this week's Chaplain (and staff alum ... ahem ...)!  See a couple minutes from this morning's Rah Rah Ray.  The musicians for the day were staff and L&S corps members as it was Judy's day off. They did a GREAT job!! Judy is great at getting all kinds of people involved in the music.  "Shout to the North" is a camp favorite!

New Friends Week 2

Written by Knute Ogren on Wednesday, 13 July 2011

Girls_12During any two week period -- half of the kids go home on Saturday after the first session and new campers will arrive on Sunday.  The other half of the campers ... the two weekers ... spend Saturday afternoon through Sunday afternoon having a great time here at camp. It's always good to see how great the veteran campers are as they welcome in the new ones. Calumet's campers are just the best! Here's a little taste of what happens at Calumet on Sunday afternoon. Enjoy!

Sunday Morning, Week Two

Written by Knute Ogren on Sunday, 10 July 2011

Sunday_Wk_2_PicSunday Worship at Calumet -- it's so great! The Outdoor Chapel was packed.  Good Shpeherd, Laconia's Bell Choir, Pr. Josh Rinas from Zion in Waterbury, fine musicians under the direction of Calumet's own Judy Smith ... hopefully these 9 minutes or so will give you a taste of a Calumet worship experience.  Come and join us any Sunday of the year at 10 AM.  During the summer, we've got about 500 Lutherans singing and praying with some seriously good pep!
