Happy Sunday! We had an awesome Track Meet today! The day started off with blueberry bread and cereal. At 10am, instead of heading to first period classes, everyone went up to the field. There, we competed in the standing long jump, the running long jump and the softball throw followed by the 50 yard dash. By then it was about noon and we all went in the lake for the general swim. Our noontime meal was our traditional Sunday ham and noodles served with corn. We had peach crisp for dessert. Everyone was pretty tired at this point in the day after all that running and jumping so we enjoyed a nice breezy rest hour.
After everyone had a chance to recharge, girls that were interested in running “the marathon” (about a half mile) headed up to the field. Everyone else stayed by the flagpole and cheered on the girls at the finish line. Finally, it was time for the main event of the day – the Indian War Relay! Everyone participates in this relay race that starts on the camp road, dips into the lake with some swimmers, hands off to rowboaters, followed by canoes and then ends with runners down the path from Hungerford with the final leg being a 50 yard swim. It was a very exciting competition and all the girls were down at the dock at the end cheering on their team.
Afterwards, we had activity period. Campers had the opportunity to participate in swim races as part of the Track Meet day or go sail on the Hunter, play apples to apples, or kan jam by the flagpole.
This evening we had “pick up” dinner. We put out all the leftovers in camp in a big buffet and everyone could choose two items. The assortment included cold cut sandwiches, meatballs and noodles, baked ziti, pasta salad, cheesesteak sandwiches, and tomato soup. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the variety! For dessert we had our traditional Track Meet green or white frosted cake.
Last night's evening program was such a hit, we will play a second round tonight! In a few minutes, the bell will ring and we will all meet on the field for Step it Up.
Tomorrow we will be back to our normal class schedule! Keep checking back every evening for an update!
