Bluestone is a magical place where people who just met consider each other family, dogs wear people clothes, purple gorillas play tag, superheroes are real and make appearances just when they're needed most, fires reach to the skies, problems seem to fade away, and lives are changed.
Friendship for a lifetime
And a family that grows
Each and every moment
Love is being woven
Through the Father, Son, and Spirit
I have learned and now I know
That Bluestone through the ages
Will always be, like coming home

Illness often experienced by people who refer to themselves as camp counselors.
-feelings of constantly being followed around by groups of children
-hearing simple, repetitive questions such as, "What are we doing next?" and "When's pool time?"
-finding minor lapses in personal hygiene completely acceptable
-need to make up code words to use in place of inappropriate words and phrases
-bouts of complete insanity
-darkening of exposed areas of skin
Campers is most prevalent in the summer and often goes into multiple, brief periods of remission (often after week-long periods of symptoms) before finally going away.
I can't, I have campers.

A fun and simple pool activity where everyone forms a circle in the pool and runs as fast as they can in one direction and then everyone changes direction at the same time and try to run the other direction causing a whirlpool effect. This process is then repeated as much as desired. The more people the better the whirlpool!
Everyone form a circle in the shallow end and we'll make a whirlpool!
No dying in the whirlpool, please!

CIT's are the unsung and often overlooked heroes of camp. Working for even less pay than the minimal pay of the famed and glorified camp counselor
, CIT's are often tasked with the grunt work of washing dishes and working in the kitchen in addition to an hour a day of CIT class and a CIT project, leaving limited time for them to actually be of any use to the counselor and group they've been paired with for the week. All of this they do just for a small taste of the authority and experience of almost being a counselor while still in high school.
Are you a counselor or a CIT?
What does CIT stand for?
Your camper just insulted me, he called me a CIT.
You'll always be King of the CIT's, Durphy.

The small covering of dirt that gets on food as a result of being dropped while cooking over a campfire. It is so named due to the frequent occurrence while camping in the Hogans
Be our guest, Be our guest
Put our Dutch Ovens to the test
Try the fajitas they're nutritious,
Hogan Spice it's delicious!

A legendary roll of duct tape which is capable of sticking to anything and never losing stickiness. However, the possibility of such a roll of duct tape raises the eternal question of whether you would be able to get the duct tape off the roll. Sadly, this is a question which can only truly be answered by discovering the Eternal Duct Tape.
If Eternal Duct Tape is eternally sticky, would you be able to get it off the roll?

Residents of area surrounding a lake. Lakies are known for living mostly in trailors or poorly maintained houses, use of trucks which are long past their prime, interesting facial hair, spending long hours on the lake and/or fishing, creation of awkward encounters, and generally poor hygiene.
We're the lakies of the lake
We think we are quite great
We have our fun and when we're done
We really smell like poop?
