Buck's Rock - 2005

Here they are....pictures from the summer of 2005 at Buck's Rock...the summer of Dusty Springfield, Shedfan, peeing in the street, head lice, heros, and Ernie the Rat.... Feel free to email me comments, etc. If you'd like higher resolution versions of any of them emailed to you that can be arranged. I also have a few more pictures that I did not post, particularly from the shows. So if you're looking for anything in particular, such as all the pictures I have with you in them, I might be willing to look through them and email you those too.

*Addendum as of 8/27/05....
It occurred to me that a lot of people are posting their pictures on line these days. Wouldn't it be great if there was one central place that had a link to everyone's sites where their pictures were posted? Well, I am volunteering to be that central site. Now I just need everyone to send me the links to where your pictures are so I can add it. So, send me your links, and encourage your friends to send theirs too. Email them to jeffgreenberg@nyc.rr.com I will add them all at the bottom of this page.


Staff Party - At the beginning of staff orientation week (a few days before the campers arrive) we have a staff party at the Holiday. There is much dancing and consumption, and karaoke at this party. Here are a few memories from that night.
  • Alex and Luke
  • Eloise and Ben
  • Alana

    Team Building - Another thing that happens before the campers arrive is a fun day of staff team building. This year everyone was divided into teams and had to create an offering to to the God Bulovus. The team that had the best offering won some insignificant prize. Here are some of the highlights of the offerings from that day.
  • Brian singing a song as part of a ritual
  • Sarah carrying their offering toward the God
  • The God Bulovus awaiting his offerings
  • The pink team offering the God a sacrificial virgin (Eloise)
  • Now they're carrying their virgin back to the stage for the sacrifice
  • Tom carrying a sacrificial skeleton to the God
  • Alex and Chris carrying their sacrificial virgin (Natalie) to the God
  • The clowns perform a violent ritual in which they destroyed an effigy of an evil God. Is that Becky with a field hockey stick, and Sara in a shopping cart?

    Amy's Pictures - Finally the campers arrived so we were allowed to stop sacrificing each other to a foam rubber mascot. I was away in Cape Cod for 10 days at the beginning of first session and therefore didn't get many pictures. Luckily, our beloved CIT Amy, gave me these pictures that she took.
