Well, by now we're all back and none of us want to be.

Now where do you go when you get to the end of your dreams?

x-posted to my journal
so this is my first year in 7 to not go to cheley
my first year in 8 to not go to a month-long camp of some kind
my first year in 11 to not go to some camp, period.
and these are the musings of someone dealing with that loss

Help me to forget. help me to forget the feeling of standing on a mountain. help me to forget the feel of a horse's movement under me. help me to forget the sound of sixty women singing together, unashamed. help me to forget the feel of being safe and loved and isolated from the world. help me to forget the view from senior's porch. help me to forget the smell of old cabins. help me to forget the feeling of rising with the sun. help me to forget cold colorado nights. help me to forget the BK ceremony. help me to forget the love. help me to forget camp. help me to forget.

camp starts tomorrow. my heart is breaking. two decisons have been made:
1. fuck sorority. i'm going out there final weekend, even if i have to live in my car (condo is rented out)
2. i'm applying to be a councelor there next summer. i can't live longer without it.

there is a cheley shaped hole in my heart.

help me to forget.

"i've seen fire and i've seen rain.
i've seen sunny days that i thought would never end.
i've seen lonely times when i could not find a friend.
but i always thought that i'd see you again"


"peace, i ask of thee oh river
peace, peace peace.
when i learn to live serenely cares will cease.

from the hills i gather courage.
visions of the days to be.
strength to lead and faith to follow.
all are given unto me.

peace i ask of thee oh river
peace, peace peace"

I miss camp so much. :( I'm so bummed I can't go back this year. I was in GTE last year, first term, and I had the best time of my life. My brother, Scott, was in BTE in '99 and '01 (I think?). I hope to go back next year. :)

Hey all (although really I should use ya'll for Cheley time's sake). My name's Caitlin McKenna and I was at GTE first term for three years, but I stopped going in 2002. My sister Alison has been going for the past three years, but is stopping this year.
Summers at Cheley were some of the best of my life- I never got into one thing particularly, but I made wonderful friends and had fun. I can't wait until I can become a councilor! I still speak to some of my friends from GTE, but I've lost touch with a lot of them as the distance has taken its toll.
Anyway, it's great to see that Cheley has a community here! Hope to talk to you all soon,

i miss everyone so much. *grab handfuls of tissues*

i can't bear the thought of not coming back. it physically hurts all over my body. i need to see everyone.

i just want to sit in the chapel, or in the senior buddy ring and just cry or something. i want to sit in the dirt and horse poo in the horse ring, i don't care! just get me there.

just get me there.

Alright, I'm here! You know, it's really frosting my cookies that LJ doesn't send me all my comments in my e-mail. *hits LJ*

Anyway, my name is Megan, I was a camper for 3 years ['00-'02], all 2nd term in SC; and I was an SC CiLT last summer, which was absolutely incredible. I live in Santa Rosa, CA; and Cheley was and is absolutely the best thing that could have ever happened to me. [Unless I marry Dominic Monaghan...but I'm not holding out hope. Besides, the wedding would be at Cheley anyway. Heh.]

I'm glad we have this community, because it's nice to have Cheley friends to lean on and talk to, especially since we have all been a part of something so amazing. Not many people can understand when I talk about camp, so I keep that to a minimum around here at home. "What? You went to summer camp? Pssh." Oh, shut up you. I hate it when people put summer camps down, I kind of just want to slap them upside the head.

I guess that's all for now. Talk about some rambling! I hope more people find this community, there have to be more than 9 people on LJ who went to Cheley!

Love you guys.

P.S. Psst! Gwyn! On the userinfo, Haiyaha is missing it's first "a" ^_^

Hiya folks!

So, info on me:
I'm Laura Fletcher
I've been at GTE for the past three years and am going again this summer.
I'm an ex-rider turned hiker.
Cheley is the best thing that ever happened to me.

Soyeah. Cheers!

Oh, and I think this community is a brilliant idea, so kudos to Gwyn :)

I decided that us cheley-folk needed a livejournal. and now that they're free... it's easy!

Just a quick bit of who i am before i go to bed:
I'm Gwyn,
I was in chipeta 98-99,
senior 2000-03 (CILT last summer)
(all 2nd term)
I was too lazy to do any patchwork, besides rifelry things, but i was a rider, more or less.

oh yeah, and i was one of the trumpeters at allcamp the past two years! that was fun.

ok, so if anyone stumbles on this community (as i hope people will!), i'd appreciate it if you'd tell your other cheley friends about this, and post an introduction-thing.
