August 1 – Happy Birthday Camp Timanous!

Another perfect summer day from start to finish with highs in the mid-80s.  

This morning’s activities included archery, camp craft with fire building, soccer, handicrafts with basket weaving, nature, riflery, tennis and of course everyone had instructional swim. 

Everyone picked up their clean laundry after lunch on their way to their cabin. 

This afternoon,  special activities include paper airplane building, basket weaving, tie-dying, and practice for the talent show scheduled for this weekend.   Additional activities were archery, tennis, soccer, wood shop, sailing, canoeing and basketball. 

Tonight, we celebrated camp’s 100th birthday with a pizza party.   When lunch was over, we locked the barn doors, rearranged the tables and decorated for the party.  Everyone was surprised when the doors opened to see three long tables. Before grace was said, everyone automatically joined hands which was really neat.  There were many announcements through out dinner with little bits of history about the barn or camp in general and lots of cheers of  “To the Hundy”. Everyone sang Happy Birthday and enjoyed birthday cake!  

Then it was off to a free evening with two Twilight Leagues games plus Ultimate Frisbee, soccer, tennis, basketball, ping-pong, canoeing and more.   When the bell rang at 7:45, it was down to the cabins to get ready for bed but there was a quick dip first which always feels great on a hot night.
