Good evening! Another beautiful day at Camp Asto Wamah in the books. This morning we enjoyed waffles with peanut butter (a camp tradition). Everyone had a productive morning in their classes. It was sunny and warm; it is much more comfortable without all the humidity that we endured the first two days. Our noontime meal was chicken parm with spaghetti and salad and we had butterscotch pudding for dessert. After general swim and fourth period, we had an eventful activity period! Options included jumping off the tower, water aerobics, Nuke 'Em, and paddle boarding. Other campers were selected from the sign-up list to go on a sunfish sailboat or the Hunter (Camp's larger sailboat).
Wednesdays and Saturdays are the kitchen staff's night off. During lunch, counselors took sandwich orders for their cabins. Options were turkey, ham, cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayo, or mustard. Campers choose their preferred sandwich combo. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are offered as an alternative or in addition. Then, instead of gathering in the lodge for supper, cabins disperse throughout camp to have a picnic. Cabins 7 and 8 rowed out to the rafts for their picnic. Most of the other cabins also got water views and sat on the docks or the picnic tables by the shore.
Some cabins are still out enjoying their picnics and most are wrapping up and getting prepared for evening program. Tonight, we will play Capture the Flag on the A-Field. It's a great game for everyone, campers and counselors, to get involved in.
