July 11th

It has been another wonderful day here at Camp Asto Wamah. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful, well behaved group of boys this session! They are some of the best campers we have seen; they are always eager to help, good listeners and very respectful. Today's breakfast was bagels served with cream cheese or butter and cereal, as always. It was a super hot day, so the campers in canoeing learned how to properly handle a capsized boat. Lunch was a camp-wide favorite - shepherds pie (a casserole of beef, corn and mashed potatoes). Activity period offerings included the tower, soccer, Nuke Em, paddle boarding! A lot of boys choose to use activity period time to work on their boating skills or go fishing off of the many docks around camp.

This evening was another night out for the kitchen staff. Some of the other staff filled in to serve hotdogs and chips with cookies and fruit pops for dessert. Instead of eating outside like Wednesday, every camper had to sit at a new table without their cabin-mates. It was a great opportunity to meet new people and learn some new names.

Now, the campers are up on the field playing "Garbage Collector." The whole camp will be involved in dunking balls in a "trash can" on either side of the field. Afterwards, we will have time for a quick dip on this super warm evening! Watermelon will be served as a bedtime snack.

We are lucky this session to have some very musically talented campers. Every night we traditionally have at least one camper blow "Taps" to mark the end of the day. This year, the veteran "Taps" players have been teaching the younger musicians to play with them and it has made for a very special treat.

Tomorrow is everyone's favorite day of camp - Track and Field Day! We will not hold our normal schedule, instead everyone will spend the morning on the field competing in various track events. Details to come tomorrow! Stay tuned.

It has come to our attention that some of our new campers found out about CAW online at campratingz.com. We took a look at it and noticed the latest reviews are from 2013! If you have any positive comments you would like to share, we would really appreciate some new reviews.
