We woke to another great summer day! High of 82, sunny, and a nice breeze.
It was a regular morning with sign-ups and swims although as often happens on Friday, what is normally instructional swim was games. It was water polo for the upper bunkline and a game of tag for the lower bunkline. Activities to signup for included archery, soccer, flow painting in handicrafts, riflery, sailing, woodshop, tennis, and beginner’s water skiing.
The Katahdin trip returned just before lunch. They had an amazing trip and everyone made it to the top in great shape. There were a few sore muscles today but not too bad. Check out the pictures on the Shutterfly site under 2nd Session Trips.
This afternoon, as is tradition, it was Friday Trips (explained in the Friday, June 29th post). The campers that just returned from climbing Mt. Katahdin had the option to stay in camp and rest but most didn’t. The trips include a hike up Rattlesnake Mountain (a 15 minute drive and about a 25 minute hike one way with a great view of Panther Pond and Sebago Lake), a long sail down the lake, a canoe paddle down the lake to a great swimming spot, or soccer on the field.
Everyone returned in time for a quick dip and then Friday Candy! During Free Time, archery, riflery, handicrafts, basketball, ping-pong, spikeball, badminton, tennis, and other various games were all available. The Kayak trip returned during Free Time having had a fantastic trip. The counselors reported it was an awesome group of kayakers.
This evening it was a Free Evening with all of the regular Free Evening activities including a Twi-Light League game plus Adirondack Golf.
