This morning we enjoyed cornbread and cereal for breakfast, after which we took our cabin photos! Each session all of the cabins group together for a photo. This photo is available at the end of the session and is a great way to remember each year’s camp experience. Older staff love digging out old cabin photos!
Up at the A-Field during sports class today, campers played “Non-Stop-Cricket”, kickball and handball. Meanwhile, on the lake campers worked on their swimming strokes, fisherman’s row and sailing skills. It was especially sunny and hot today, so campers were encouraged to drink plenty of water and apply lots of sunscreen!
For lunch, campers and staff had ziti and salad before heading off to their cabins for rest hour, followed by a general swim. Due to the heat, all of the campers went in for the swim today! Afterwards, campers participated in a bunch of different games during activity period. Counselors offered jumping off the tower, Gaga Ball, horseshoes and soccer on the A-Field.
Every night before dinner everyone gathers around the flagpole to hear cabin inspection results. The nurse has been really pleased with everyone’s cleanliness this session! Cabin 5 even left Carol our nurse a little message:
Tonight’s dinner was a little out of the ordinary as it is our kitchen’s night off. On nights like these we have what is called “Eat Out”. Every camper and staff member has a cold cut or hummus sandwich and as a cabin they eat somewhere in camp. Some cabins ate on docks, others at the picnic tables and some at the counsel ring. It is always a fun change for campers!
Campers are headed off to tonight’s evening program: Spies and Smugglers. Campers try to sneak points up to the A-Field without getting tagged by the other team. Everyone will surely be exhausted after all of the running!
