1967 Serena's postcard to Roberta -July 3
Here are the things we usually do in order (8:00) get up, dress & clean up. 8:45 go to dining hall. have flag ceremony. 9:15 eat. 10:00 go swimming. 12:00 goof around. 1:30 eat lunch. 2:30-3:30 rest hour (ha ha!) goof around. 5:30 Change to uniform. 6:30 flag ceremony. 6:45 eat (hooray) 7:45 goof around and have camp fire. 9:30 get ready for bed. 10:00 lights out (supposedly)!
The food here is great. Mom, you would love this camp like things that are restricted here: eating before the counselor eats (she serves), no napkins on the table, no elbows, you must eat 3 G.S. bites, etc. etc. (You know it isn't as bad as I thought!) Changing into the camp uniform is awful. Oh, we have Beginners A.B. have green caps.
And at long last I have learned how to do the breath [sic] stroke. My roommates are Lou Ann (Louie), Sue (Sammie), Jean (my best friend) My counselors are Marilyn, Hazel (my swim teacher), Joyce, and Eileen. I'm having a great time. Yesterday we bout had a flood (of water). So far I haven't seen a moose. Not yet a hike, have crafts, etc. or lay in bed in any weather.
Sorry I haven't written before but I just haven't had enough time. Mom, you will really be surprised about my manners when I get home.
Your breath stroke sister,
