Special 20th Southwoods Reunion!

The
 Warm
 Inner
  Glow
 was
 never
  as
  prevalent
  as
  it
  was
 at
  the
  extraordinary
 20th
 
Anniversary
 Southwoods
 Fall
 Reunion.
 
 Andrea,
 Scott,
 and
 the
 entire
 Southwoods
 
Team
 would
 like
 to
 extend
 an
 enormous
  “THANK
 YOU”
  to
 our
  amazing
  families,
 
current
 and
 alumni,
 who
 joined
 us
  on
 the
 Duchess
 Yacht
  in
 New
  York
 City
 for
  an
 
amazing
 day
 together!

The
  20th
  anniversary
  reunion
  was
  filled
  with
  many
  entertaining
  attractions
  and
 
activities
 alike.
 
 As
 we
 sailed
 around
 the
 Hudson
 viewing
 some
 of
 New
 York
 City’s
 
finest
  attractions;
 we
 also
 enjoyed
 a
 photo
 booth,
  cup
 stacking,
  and
 a
 square
 quilt
 
making
 activity!

The
 morning
 began
 with
 camp
 friends
  catching
  up
 about
 life
 and
 reminiscing
  about
 
all
 the
 past
 summers.
 
 The
 reunion
 program
 shortly
 followed
 and
 The
 Warm
 Inner
 
Glow
  continued
  to
  be
  felt
  throughout
  the
  packed
  vessel
  as
  Scott
  asked
  Dawn
 
Ewing,
 the
 executive
  director
 of
 Project
 Morry,
  to
 join
 him
 in
 the
 front.
 Everyone
 
then
 took
  a
  moment
  to
  reflect
  and
 acknowledge
 the
  swimming
  and
 walking
  laps
 
campers
 did
 this
 past
  summer
 to
 raise
 money
 for
 Project
  Morry!
  On
 behalf
 of
 our
 
amazing
  camp
  families
  and
  everyone
  at
  Southwoods,
  Andrea
  &
  Scott
  presented
 
Dawn
w  ith
 a
 $35,000
c  heck
 for
 continued
 support
 of
 the
 work
 they
d  o
 to
 envision
 a
 
positive
 future
 for
 youth
 from
 at-­‐risk
 and
 economically
 challenged
 communities.

Feeling
  proud,
  we
  continued
  to
  laugh
  and
  cheer
  as
  everyone
  watched
  the
  first
  IN THIS EDITION
screening
  of
  the
  2017
  compilation
  video.
  Scott
  then
  announced
  a
  few
  new

  Southwoods
 this
  summer:
  a

 new

A Note From Andrea & Scott

Dear Southwoods,

Ahoy mate…We are still basking in the glow of an amazing camp reunion. Getting to spend the
afternoon sailing around Manhattan with 300 of our closest friends, it is hard not to feel lucky. That view
of the city...those pictures up close with the Statue of Liberty…memories not to be forgotten. And
speaking of memories, we know we will get to create even more of them as we see many of you at the
upcoming Winter Weekend in January.

Directly following the reunion as the boat was docking, Andrea and I had the wonderful opportunity to
meet with our 2018 Super Seniors and parents. It was a chance for parents to ask questions and for us to
help everyone feel safe and excited. We shared with the campers the amazing trip they are about to take
this summer in detail. More importantly we had some of last year’s Super Seniors volunteer to take
questions from both parents and campers. They shared all the amazing parts of the program. We
watched with a smile as they answered parent questions and highlighted what they felt was the best part
of the trip. There is no doubt that the Super Senior program continues to build on the skills and helps
develop the maturity our campers will need as they start to embrace becoming an adult. Things they
highlighted as the best parts of the trip included; Rafting the Colorado, Mt Biking in Moab, staying in
Las Vegas, sailing the Stars and Stripes Yacht in the Pacific, the TMZ tour around LA, learning to Surf in
San Diego, staying at Project Morry, Jet boating at Niagara, and Cedar Point roller coasters…what is not
to like here?

After the reunion was over, all our staff joined us back at our house for an afternoon of food and games.
Now more than ever as we read the news and watch the sorted TV reports, it is clear to me that the young
adults at my house that day, are the role models we want to put in our children’s path. These young adults
embody everything we as adults hope our children mature into being as adults. Southwoods is truly
blessed with a quality staff that continues to progress those values we want to instill in our children. It
was so much fun getting to hang out with these amazing young adults – your
Southwoods staff. We can promise you that this year’s staff is committed to an even
better summer than the one we had last year, if that is even possible.

So as we embrace this very important family time of year, we hope that all of you
take a moment and just stop…take inventory of all that is good in your life. Draw
your family close and celebrate each other. May God Bless each and every one of
you this holiday season and may we all continue to enjoy good health throughout
the coming New Year.

Love,
Andrea & Scott

Last
  year
  was
  my
  +irst
  summer
  at
 
Southwoods,
  and
  my
  +irst
  time
  at
 
sleep
  away
  camp.
  At
  +irst,
  it
  was
 
weird
  not
  coming
 home
 to
  see
 my
 
parents
 everyday
 or
 sleeping
 in
 my
 
Paisley Paddock Josh Bludorn received 1st own
 bed.
  I
 hung
 up
 some
 photos
 of
 
competed in 2 events my
  mom,
  dad,
  dog
  and
  kitty
 on
 the
  wall
  next
 to
  my
 
at a tumbling bed
 and
 that
 helped
 a
 lot.
  So
  did
 the
 awesomely
 epic
 
competition and got counselors.
 After
 a
 few
  days,
 I
 got
 more
 comfortable
 
first place in both in
  my
  bunk,
  started
  to
  make
  new
  friends,
  and
  got
 
events! Way to go, or 2nd place medals for the used
  to
  the
  camp
  routine.
  By
  the
  end
  of
  the
  +irst
 
Paisley!
6 events he competed in at week,
  I
 was
  all
 in!
  I
 made
 amazing
 friends,
  did
 tons
 
a gymnastics meet. He of
 cool
 stuff,
 and
 had
 a
 lot
 of
 fun!!!!!!!!
 I
 had
 so
 many
 
placed second over all! favorite
  activities
  at
  camp.
  Here
  are
  a
 few:
  trekking
 
Great job, Josh! at
 Pines,
  except
 for
 the
 mosquitos;
  caving,
  including
 
the
 30-­‐degree
 water,
 putting
 green
 mud
 on
 my
  face,
 
and
 squeezing
  through
  the
  nostrils;
  tubing
  and
  not
 
falling
 off;
 sailing
 a
 Sun+ish,
  and
 not
 getting
 stuck
  on
 
the
 lake.
  Another
 great
 thing
 about
 the
 summer
 was
 
Tribal,
  of
  course,
  and
  not
  just
  because
  I
  was
  in
 
Mohawk,
  woo-­‐hoo!
  Go
  Blue!,
  but
  because
  it
  was
 
AJ Tanihaha turned 9 after really
 fun
 to
 do
 all
 the
 races
 and
 cheer
 my
 team
 on.
 
he left Southwoods and is
now back in Jakarta enjoying Next
  summer,
  I
  am
  most
  looking
 forward
 to
  seeing
 
my
  camp
 friends
  again,
  and
 I
  really
  hope
  I’m
  in
 the
 
4th grade. AJ loves exploring same
 bunk
 with
 them.
  I
 also
  hope
 to
 see
 some
 of
 my
 

the beaches in Indonesia, counselors
  again
  because
  they
  were
  so
  great
  and
 
practicing baseball, and
really

  me
 last
 year.

The
 top
 10
 things
 we
 feel
 a
 child
 should
 have
 the
 opportunity
 to
 learn
 and
 experience
 at
 Southwoods:

1.
 Campers
 should
 have
 the
 opportunity
 to
 learn
 how
 to
 navigate
 the
 tricky
 social
 situations
 we
 all
 face
 the
 rest
 
of
 our
 lives.
 They
 should
 have
  opportunities
 to
 learn
  how
 to
 be
  a
 part
 of
  and
 engage
 in
  what
 we
  like
  to
 call
 “dinner
 
conversation”.
 They
 learn
 how
 to
 meet
 new
 people
  of
  various
 ages
 and
 create
 appropriate
  and
 positive
 relationships.

not

 or
 they
 may

 a
 group.
 The
 growth
 comes
 in
 how
 they
 are
 taught
 
 to
 deal
 with
 these
 situations.
2.
  Campers
  should
  have
  the
  opportunity
 to
  explore
  nature
  in
  a
  way
 that
 is
  different
  than
  just
  being
 out
 in
 the
 
back
 yard.
 They
 get
 to
 learn
 how
 and
 where
 to
 pitch
 a
  tent,
 cook
 over
 a
 fire,
 catch
 frogs,

share
  in
 front
 of
 mom
  and
  dad
 that
 one
  of
  their
 favorite
 activities
 at
 camp
 was
 frog
  catching
 or
 caving!
 Things
 many
 
parents
 would
 have
 been
 positive
 their
 child
 would
 not
 have
 enjoyed.
 
3.
  Campers
  should
  come
 home
  from
  camp
  having
  had
 the
  opportunity
  to
  find
  out
  they
 are
  strong.
  They
  are
 
strong
  enough
 to
 fall
 down,
 scrape
  their
 knee
 and
 their
 ego,
  then
 get
 up
 and
 wipe
 both
 off,
  and
 keep
 going.
 They
 find
 out
 
they
 can
  be
  away
 from
  their
 parents
 and
 their
 home
  and
 all
 is
 still
 okay!
  They
 build
 independence,
 confidence
  and
 self-­‐
esteem
 which
 sets
 them
 up
 to
 take
 advantage

 Everyday
 we
 see

 awaken

 passions
 they
 never

they
 had!
 It
 is
 truly
 one
 of
 the
 most
 special
 parts
 of
 camp.
6.
 Campers
 should
 be
 introduced
 to
 new
 experiences
 everyday
 at
 camp.
 From
 the
 moment
 they
 step
 on
 the
 bus
 
we
 strive
 to
  immerse
 campers
 in
 a
 world
 of
 discovery.
 Meeting
  new
 friends
 they’ll
 hold
 dear
 for
 the
  rest
 of
  their
 
lives.
 Trying
 new
 foods
 that
 they
 would
 never
 be
 willing
 try

 and
 participate
 in
 a
 host
 of
 
new
 and

 activities
 on

7.
  Campers
 grow
 their
  ability
 to
  appreciate
 and
 embrace
  others
  by
  having
 the
 opportunity
 to
  be
  exposed
 to

Line Up! Boys Side

I
 don’t
 know
 about
 you
 but
 I
 truly
 enjoy
 this
 >me
 of
 the
 year!
 Seasons
 are
  Johnny Reinke
beginning
 to
 transform
 and
 as
 the
 New
 Year
 approaches,
 it
 is
 >me
 for

It
 is
 crazy
 to
 think;
 just
 4
 months
 ago
 we
 were
 hanging
 out
 with
 our
 camp
 friends
  Head Counselor
and
 singing
 campfire
 songs.
 Although
 another
 Southwoods
 summer
 countdown
 
has
 begun,
 be
 sure
 to
 take
 a
 moment
 this
 season
 and
 remember
 your
 personal
 
growth
 and
 progress
 from
 this
 past
 year.
 We
 have
 all
 climbed
 a
 mountain
 and
 have
 
grown
 along
 the
 way.
 Some
 of
 us
 have
 go"en
 taller
 and
 wiser,
 while
 others
 have
 
gained
 courage
 and
 confidence.
 Be
 proud
 as
 you
 reflect
 on
 where
 you
 were,
 and
 
where
 you
 are
 going!
 Every
 journey
 yields
 an
 occasion
 to
 make
 a
 new
 friend,
 or
 
have
 a
 new
 experience,
 and
 will
 always
 give
 us
 opportunity
 to
 grow.

 
It
 was
 amazing
 to
 see
 everyone
 at
 this
 year’s
 20th
 anniversary
 reunion!
 We
 were
 
on
 a
 boat!
 Southwoods
 campers,
 families,
 and
 staff
 sure
 know
 how
 to
 make
 every
 
Southwoods’
 event
 incredibly
 awesome!
 I
 cannot
 wait
 for
 summer!
 

Un#l
 next

 Keep
 Dreaming

The Southwoods Cookbook

Sʼmores are a camp staple and now you can enjoy them year round with this make-at-
home recipe! These Sʼmores Bites are sure to be a hit at the next family gathering!

Sʼmores Bites
Makes: 24 Bites
Total Time: 30 Minutes

Ingredients:
• 7 whole graham crackers (equals 1 cup), finely crushed
• 1/4 cup powdered sugar
• 6 tablespoons butter, melted
• 2 (1.55 oz) milk chocolate candy bars (I used hersheyʼs), divided into rectangles
• 12 large marshmallows, cut in half

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
2. Finely crush the graham crackers into crumbs, using whatever method you want.
3. Combine the graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and melted butter into a small bowl.
4. Evenly divide crumb mixture into each cup of 24 cup mini muffin pan, grease slightly before using. Press

crumbs down to form shallow cups.
5. Bake 4-5 minutes or until edges are bubbling.
6. While thatʼs baking, break the candy breaks into the divided rectangle pieces. Also cut the marshmallows in half

using scissors that have been sitting in cold water.
7. Remove the pan from the oven and place one chocolate rectangle into each cup.
8. Place one marshmallow half, cut-side down, into each cup.
9. Return to oven for 2-4 minutes or until marshmallows are slightly softened.
10.If youʼd like the tops to be brown, turn the oven to broil, and broil the sʼmores bites for 1-2 minutes.
11.Cool on cooling rack for 15 minutes before carefully removing them from the pan.

One of our favorite things about Southwoods is the freedom we have when we unplug. It provides us with uninterrupted time to
focus on our friendships and be present in the moment. It also gives us time to be creative and try new things! Here is one of our
favorite improv games as seen performed by our female Group Leaders at campfire! Try it at home for a guaranteed good time!

“Lines From a Hat”

Step 1- Distribute pencils and paper to audience.
Step 2- Ask each audience member to write sentences on pieces of paper. Tell them they can use a famous saying,
something someone said to them, or something they just made up, the sillier the better! (Just make sure theyʼre
Southwoods appropriate!)
Step 3- Collect the sentences in a hat.
Step 4- Select two players.
Step 5- Each player takes a handful of sentences from the hat without looking at them.
Step 6- Ask the audience to suggest an action and setting for the scene.
Step 7- The players start the scene as usual, but every 5 or 6 lines one player reads one of the audienceʼs
suggestions.
Step 8- No matter how bizarre or random the sentence seems, the players must incorporate it into the scene.
Step 9- Players should alternate in reading audience sentences. If player 1 reads the first one, player 2 should read
the second one, and so forth.
Step 10- The game should end when each player has read at least three sentences and the scene reaches a
natural climax, (ending with lots of laughter)!
