and counselors-in-training...
please rise for our national anthem.
How about that anthem, huh?
I don't know about you, but I just get
a great, big lump in my throat...

every time I hear it.
It's 7:05 in the a.m. And...
it's, wow, 43 degrees...
on the old Camp North Star
weather dial.

That is kind of nippy
for a June 25, isn't it?

I'm Tripper Harrison...
I'm your head counselor...
and this is my wake-up show.
I'll be coming at you every morning
about this time...

hoping to make
your summer camp experience...

the best available...
in this price range.
Of course, across the lake...
over at Camp Mohawk...
they won't be getting up
for another hour or so.

And when they do, they'll be awakened
by servants bearing croissants...

and café au lait.
Whoops, I hope I didn't hit anybody.
But here at Camp North Star
this morning we're gonna be having...

a delicious gruel breakfast.
And don't forget to ask
for seconds because...

it's all the gruel you can eat.
Are you ready for the summer
Are you ready for the good times
Are you ready for the birds and bees
the apple trees

And a whole lotta foolin' around
