This summer our camp theme is Narnia!
The forests around Camp Widjiitiwin are not the friendly Hundred Acre Wood of Christopher’s childhood days. The bears here do not eat honey and a lion, not Tiggers, roam these royal lands. But hope and spring are on the way for Aslan has been sighted, and he’s calling you to come an explore the land through the wardrobe into a magic land where Aslan is King, a land of fairy tale creatures, where boys and girls become kings and queens! Pack your sword and trumpet along with your toothbrush and prepare yourself for the adventure of a lifetime!
There is a quote I have always remembered from the Chronicles of Narnia that I thought said, “Ours is not to know what might have been.” The actual quote is from the book Prince Caspian and reads, “To know what would have happened, child?” said Aslan. “No. Nobody is ever told that.”
“The castle of Cair Paravel on its little hill towered up above them; before them were the sands, with rocks and little pools of salt water, and seaweed, and the smell of the sea and long miles of bluish-green waves breaking for ever and ever on the beach. And oh, the cry of the seagulls! Have you ever heard it? Can you remember?” – The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
“To the glistening eastern sea, I give you Queen Lucy the Valiant. To the great western woods, King Edmund the Just. To the radiant southern sun, Queen Susan the Gentle. And to the clear northern skies, I give you King Peter the Magnificent. Once a king or queen of Narnia, always a king or queen of Narnia. May your wisdom grace us until the stars rain down from the heavens.” –
