Today the campers enjoyed yet another beautiful day on Columbia Lake. It was perfect weather for swimming, boating, and sports. We had French toast for breakfast, and chicken fingers for dinner, with vanilla pudding and sprinkles for dessert. After a nice Rest Hour, everyone enjoyed the general swim. For Activity Period, some of the choices were soccer, jumping off the tower, and fishing off the raft. I was with 3 campers who caught 4 big fish (in total). Having never been fishing before, I was impressed by the campers' ability to catch and then send each fish back to safety. It was an exciting afternoon. As I write, cookees are setting their cabins' tables for supper, and a delicious meal of meatball grinders is being prepared. Apple crisp- one of the camp favorites- is for dessert!
As foretold last night, the campers and staff enjoyed an exciting game of Capture the Flag, followed by a satisfying quick dip in the lake.
Check back tomorrow to find out which game is played tonight. Whatever it is will be a lot of fun!
