The campers arrived a bit after noon yesterday, and quickly settled into their bunks and began to meet their fellow campers. After camp tours and icebreakers to get to know each other better, campers, counselors, and staff met in the Council Ring, where Nancy Maclean, Camp Director, welcomed new and returning campers and introduced herself, the counselors and staff. Once new campers had been classified as either Aquarium, Intermediate, or Deep Water swimmers, the entire camp enjoyed a General Swim. Following the traditional first-night supper of hot dogs, tater tots, baked beans and brownies, campers trekked to the A-field to hear the rules of Medical War, an exciting game of dodgeball. Campers were eager to take a “Quick Dip” in the lake to cool down after the game, as it has been perfect swimming weather.
After a 7:30AM wake-up on Monday, campers began their first full day of camp. After a breakfast of Blueberry Bread and cereal, campers and their counselors worked together to clean their cabins and camp before morning classes: Swimming, Smallcraft, Sports, and Arts and Crafts. With the hot and humid weather, campers were once again eager to get in the lake. After Dinner (the noon meal), Store, and Rest Hour, campers once again had the opportunity to enjoy the lake during General Swim. As rainy weather is currently rolling in, fourth period classes will take place indoors. Next up: Activity Period, Supper, and Evening Program.
