As the days get shorter and the nights chillier, we thought it would be a good time to remind everyone how much fun was had at Camp Foley in 2012.
We caught up with Meghan O’Connell and Lachlan Ewald to find out their funniest memories from camp in 2012. Here is what they had to say:
A funny story about Meghan’s first day at Camp Foley in 2012:
I do have a funny story that involves Claire [Krummenacher] and the first time I met her, actually!
I was saying ‘Hi’ to everyone in my cabin when I got off the bus, and I said ‘Hi’ to Claire, and I just thought, ‘Oh she seems really nice.’ What I didn’t know is, because I was the only incoming 2nd session camper for my cabin, that they decided that it would be funny to play a few tricks on me. So Claire, for the whole first day, talked in a British accent and told me that she was from London. [She] played up this whole story about her sisters and everything!
On the first night, she came over to my bed, and then said, ‘Meghan I’m not from London. I was just kidding about everything I told you today.’ of course I just started laughing and felt so gullible, but it’s okay now.

A funny memory Lachlan has of a 2012 Evening Program: Cabins Ojibway, Seneca, and Matoaka were playing [a made-up game] Sniper. So we played a few games, then the counselors got creative. They got squirt guns and if we got shot, we were out. So after the counselors were done being snipers, they handed [the task] over to us, the campers.
I became a sniper and had my sights set on Marnie [Brown, Matoaka counselor]. As I’m filling my water gun, I realize it doesn’t really hold water, so in order to get Marnie, I cupped my hands, filled them with water, and ran to go get her. After many failed attempts, I FINALLY got her!
