Another perfect day!
Pretty much a regular morning with a few exceptions. A 15 & under soccer team was up early, ate breakfast and on their way to a 6-a-side soccer tournament at one of our neighboring camps and the Hawks cabin left on their camping trip which included a hike up Rattlesnake Mountain and a night camping on the shores of Sebago Lake. At camp, activities available included archery, beginners kayaking, beginners water skiing, tennis, woodshop, handicrafts, sailing, riflery, and nature.
The skies were a little dark as we headed to lunch but by the time afternoon activities started, the sun was out and it stayed out the rest of the day. Activities to chose from included archery, climbing wall, cricket, handicrafts, riflery, sailing, woodshop, tennis, waterskiing and lacrosse. The Cardinals had a period of handicrafts to work on their square for the quilt. The soccer players returned home at the beginning of free time.
Today we had a Community Dinner as part of our 100 year celebration. We invited our neighbors on the lake as well as people in the community that we work with including the Raymond Fire Department, neighboring camps, the owners of Mulberry Farms, the organic farm that supplies much of our produce, Eunice, the woman who makes all of our birthday cakes, the owner of Busy Bee Laundry, our electrician, and many more. The campers and counselors gave tours and we all enjoyed a cookout. It was a beautiful evening and our guests really enjoyed seeing camp in action and were all very impressed with the campers and counselors they met. It was a fun event.
Tonight there were two Twilight League games happening at the same time — one on the field and one on Beginner’s beach. For those not playing softball, some of the available activities included ultimate frisbee, soccer, tennis, basketball, canoeing and boating. When the bell rang, there was time for a quick dip for anyone who wanted to cool off before heading to bed.
