By Caroline S
O n S u n d ay, t h e C o m a n c h e s
performed the vesper entitled, “The
Wisdom of Waldemar” written by
Head Comanche Sponsor, Emily P.
The vesper featured true stories about
some of the staff at camp, lessons
about self-esteem, and wisdom that
every camper can carry with them the
rest of their lives.
“It was fun getting together with
the tribe and the vesper was very
inspirational,” Caroline H reported.
“It was really fun to watch,” said
Cameron T.
The Comanche Tribe performed
“Fight Song,” ”Fix My Eyes,” “Keep
Holding On,” and “Try.” It is certain
that the Comanche vesper was one
to remember!

Senior Skits
Winners
By Kendall H
Loud laughs and cheers erupted
from the crowd as campers piled
into the pier, eager to watch seniors
perform their hilarious skits. Working
hard during rest hours and free time,
each senior kampong put together
a funny skit related to Waldemar
and designed silly costumes for
the entire camp to see. Taking the
stage, the amazing skits cause not
just campers, but counselors too, to
laugh their heads off.
The judges were forced to pick
four out of the many great skits
The Waldemar War Whoop
to go on the fun trip to Mo Ranch.
While selecting the winners, side
acts such as “The Ew Show”, “Do
You Want to Build a Snowman?”,
Grayson R, Tyler R, and Sarah R
performed. There was never a dull
moment with all the thrilling skits
and the wonderful acts in between.
“ E v e r y o n e w a s s o f u n n y,”
Caroline L, low senior Comanche,
commented.
Concluding the eventful night,
the hilltoppers sang their Waldemar
song to the tune of “Fergalicious!”

Sunday Service
By Grace B
Speaker Claudia T
Speaker Jackie A
Campers and counselors dressed in white filed into Tejas Chapel Sunday at noon. The sun shone brightly on
the Guadalupe River as the girls quieted down. GA welcomed everyone to the service. All campers joined in to sing
“Amazing Grace”. The speaker, Jackie A, fascinated us with her story about the rice and the water changing under
the effect of positive and negative influences. Junior Choir, accompanied by Cassie B, sung “Over the Rainbow”.
After the ceremony, campers and counselors rushed to the bulletin board to find pictures of the rice and water
experiments. The service was wonderful and insightful. Everyone who attended was blessed by the experience!
Buzzards Of The Week:
Week 1 – Joyce J & Jessica A
Week 2 – Jacqueline P
Congratulations to Joyce,
Jessica and Jacqueline for
being awarded Buzzards
of the Week!
Joyce J. Enough
said. Joyce returns
t o Wa l d e m a r f o r
her 58th summer
and has worked so
hard! She not only
lives in K15, but she
is constantly working
hard planning our evening
programs, subbing counselors,
sorting laundry and handling nourishment
just to name a few duties. She also pitched
for the Retreads in our Buzzard softball game! We love
you Faye!!!!!
Jessica A joins Waldemar from Fayetteville, Arkansas
and she teaches golf. Jessica’s enthusiastic and positive
spirit has radiated through our counselor staff since she
drove through the front gates of Waldemar. She pitched
for the Rookie Team during our Buzzard Softball game
and did a great job! Congrats Jessica!!! Keep up the
good work!
And last, but certainly not least, Jacqueline Perez is
this week’s Buzzard of the Week! Jacqui, who has been
working hard since Short Term started, joins us for her
first summer and hopefully not her last! Jacqui works in
the archery department and has become quite valuable
to Jill J. She has stepped it up and lives in Swiss Chalet

for all that you do to make Waldemar so strong!

Second Tribal Hill - Second Term
Aztec Tribal Hill
This past Thursday, the Aztecs waited
anxiously at the rock wall ready for the
second tribal hill of the term. On lower hill,
Lilah B, Head Cheerleader, gave out the
awards for the week. High Point Junior was
awarded to Tyndall D with Princess Win-EmAll and High Point Intermediate was awarded
to Cage T. Activities Chairman, Maddie B,
announced this week’s upcoming events,
and Choral Director, Mia M led the Aztecs in
practicing the toasts.
Upon reaching upper hill, Sally W, Aztec
Leader, dedicated the hill to sportsmanship,
teamwork, and friendly competition in
preparation for first field day. Avery Elizabeth
E, Jill D, Annabelle B, and Abigail B lit torches
in honor of each dedication and reminded us
of companionship with the Comanche and
Tejas tribes.
Next, former Aztecs, Lindsay F and Mary
H, sparked determination in the Aztecs with
uplifting words, and Ellie G encouraged us all
to try our best on field day while upholding
our Aztec Ideals. Sally W then presented the
remaining weekly awards.
The Cypress Bearers were awarded to
Chrissy S and Kerry M, and Jill D received
the Cypress Girl Award.
The PAA Softball Award was given to
Irene E, the Rock the Boat Zuma Award as
given to Madison M, and the Spirit Stick was
given to Charlotte D.
After arrow awards were distributed,
we gathered in a friendship circle, sang
toasts, and closed with a prayer led by High
Senior Leader, Elizabeth C. Once Taps was
sung, the Aztecs descended the hill with
great enthusiasm and determination for
first field day.
With love,
Elisabeth M, Aztec Scribe
Comanche Tribal Hill
All Comanches gathered eagerly last
Thursday, excited to climb their tribal hill for
the second time this term. Lower hill started
off with Head Cheerleader Jacqueline R
distributing this week’s Sunshine Awards.
Braden T, Activities Chair, then read the
weekly evening events and Hannah Hansen,
Choral Director, went over to the Toasts to
the Aztec and Tejas tribes again.
After climbing our hill, Sarah C, Annie
P, Caroline D, Clare C, and Jacqueline R lit
torches to all three tribes, as well as the
Comanche ideals of trust, will to win, and
victory. Abbey G then introduced pieces
of scripture providing motivation for the
upcoming field day, read by Emilie C, Mary
M, Frances L, and Alexandra V. Former
Comanche Scribe Molly B then spoke to
the tribe and shared “The Starfish Story” in
preparation for field day. This was followed
by our 3 Comanche sponsors giving an
inspirational pep talk to the tribe.
Leader Sarah C then presented the
weekly awards: Clare B received the High
Point Junior and High Point Intermediate
went to Lottie L. Rockpile Leader was
presented to Maddie M. Our Spirit Stick was
given Beverly L, and Mary Tish P received
the megaphone. The weekly Softball Award
was given to Mary Warriner K and the War
Canoe Paddle went to Margaret M.
To conclude our second tribal hill, we
sang, “Pass It On” as we gathered around
our glowing rockpile, where Lauren L and
Caroline L recited our Traditional Rockpile
poem. Ashley W and Katy Jane A read
Squish’s prayer. We then closed with a
prayer and our Comanche tribal song and
Taps. All in all, it was a great second hill,
and a fantastic motivator for first field day.
Comanche love and hugs,
Abbey G, Comanche Scribe
Tejas Tribal Hill
On Thursday, the Tejas tribe excitedly
prepared to climb our sacred hill for the
second time this term.
Lower Hill began with the toasts to the
Aztec and Comanche tribes led by Choral
Director Katie H. The Activities Chairman,
Margot K, then read the events for the
upcoming week.
Upper Hill began with a prayer asking
the Lord for strength and courage for field
day read by Renee R. The fires of Loyalty,
Friendship, and Sportsmanship, were read
by Helen Y, Hollis W, and Kate R. Ally F,

taking chances and believing in yourself.
Laura Lynn F introduced nine returning

women and the ideals we should
follow. While we learned about

Summer Singers Rocked Out!
By Landon W
the dance, Summer Singers shirts have
been proudly worn all across the camp
in a bright, sky blue or a bold, carroty
orange color.
This night is a night for all ages.
With hit songs playing such as “Shake
It Off” by Taylor Swift and “Love Is an
Open Door” from Frozen, everyone
was certain to hear something they
enjoy. Waldemar makes sure that
every evening program is stirring
from start to finish. The girls get to
have picnic style dinner where they sit
Everyone knows that when
summer comes around, new music
come out. When new music comes out,
girls learn every word to every song
(and if there’s a dance, they learn that
too). So what better way to celebrate
summer than with a live concert put
on by Summer Singers? This group is
made up of seven Oklahoma Christian
University students that perform a
mixture of country, pop, and rock
music for all ages. They share their
love of music with their love for God.
The whole camp gathered in Ora
Johnson Amphitheater anticipating the
first song on Saturday evening. While
most of the girls crowded the stage,
there was also a line that stretched
across the lawn, where girls waited
patiently for their free shirt. Ever since
and counselors gathered around on
the steps for good conversation.
It is such a blessing to see every
camper with a beautiful, genuine
smile stretched across her face during
with other friends from other tables,
and catch up on all things camp. The
casual atmosphere sets the scene for
the splendid concert ahead.
The singers are lively and
passionate about what they do, which
is demonstrated in how they interact
with the campers during the concert.
Camper Kate R got resourceful with
a sign that read: “Bring me on stage
my name is Kate,” and it worked. Kate
was called on stage a few songs into
the show and was asked to pump up
the crowd and dance along with the
band. If you know Kate, this was right
up her alley.
Even if you aren’t a huge concert
fanatic, fun is still to be had! Friends
evening program. These girls deserve
to enjoy summer and the freedom it
brings, and we are fortunate to have
such an entertaining concert each term
that they can look forward to.

The Adventures
of Gus and Louie
By Cameron T
Find out what some of the most well
known dogs in camp are up to.
One day, Gus and Louie were doing
their usual routine; Louie sat wth Marsha
in her golf cart while Gus chased after
them. Marsha finally stopped at the
archery range and got out to watch the
campers. Gus and Louie were deathly
afraid of the archery range, so they
started to explore. They found a trail they
had never seen before and started to
walk down it. Suddenly, a net fell on Gus
and Louie. They struggled and strained,
twisted and turned, but they couldn’t get
out of the net. Finally, they laid down,
exhausted from their escape attempts.
As they started to go to sleep, Louie
heard a soft cackle in the bush a few
feet away, so he nudged Gus awake.
Alert now, they watched a cat creep
towards them.“Well, well, well, look
what I caught. The two most famous
Waldemar dogs,” said the one and only
black cat of Mystic. “What in the world
are you doing in my trap?”
“Why are you doing this!” Asked Gus.
“Why?” She chuckled. “Only so I can
hold you two as ransom, telling Marsha
the only way she’ll get her beloved
pets back is if she gives the Waldemar
property to Mystic.” She laughed. “Well,
I’ll just be writing a ransom note, bye!”
She sauntered off into the brush.
“Oh no!” Said Louie. “What are we
going to do?”
“Don’t worry.” Gus murmured.
They heard footsteps. They were
afraid the black cat was coming back
when suddenly Blue Jeans appeared in
front of them.
“Do you need help?” asked Blue
Jeans.
They nodded, and quickly got out of
the net. They scurried away before the
black cat had a chance to come back.
Gus and Louie heard Marsha whistling
and ran back to her. They hopped in the
golf cart happily and drove away, as if
nothing ever happened.

Buzzard Softball Game
Rookies vs. Retreads
The annual Buzzard softball game took place this past Sunday and the Retreads
scratched, squawked, and screeched their way to a 6 to 3 point victory over the
Rookies. Led by pitchers Joyce J and Caroline K, the Retreads proved to come
out the strongest team once again! New counselors Jessica A and Krystal D did
a great job pitching for the Rookies and all counselors did a wonderful job hitting
the ball. (I guess all of the Rookies will have to return for another summer to join
the winning Retread Team next year!) After the game, over 20 counselors ran and
jumped into the river, another counselor tradition. Great job out there Buzzards!
