Friday July 24th

It's hard to believe it is already Friday! This group of girls has been such a delight to be with and their good behavior and enthusiasm is making these two weeks wonderful. Today started with cinnamon bread for breakfast and cereal like always. The weather today could not have been more perfect to be swimming in the lake perfecting strokes, running on the field, and boating around. It was a nice break from the sun to be in the cool basement of arts and crafts too. Lunch was a camp favorite- Shepherd's Pie. Dessert was raspberry jello with cool whip.

After rest hour and general swim today, we had a special treat. Once a session, a guest program comes to camp and presents their specialty to us. Today we had ethnomusicologist, Professor Will O'Hare, from Three Rivers Community College in Norwalk. He brought over 35 instruments and presented a program that he calls World Winds. He demonstrated his many musical talents on a variety of wind instrument from around the world. Some instruments included a hand made bamboo flute, a didgeridoo, pan flutes, a conch shell, a Tibetan Trumpet, and two different types of bagpipes. He ended the program by helping each camper make their own straw oboe. Professor O'Hare was extremely knowledgable and entertaining, we all enjoyed his program very much- hopefully he can come back again!

Dinner tonight was chicken patties with chips and carrots, and apple crisp for dessert. Evening program tonight is Spies and Smugglers. Hopefully the bad weather will hold out until the game is finished and the campers are all settled into bed.
