Another beautiful summer day from start to finish — not as humid as yesterday — just perfect!
This morning, in preparation for July 4th, we built the bonfire! Everyone worked hard gathering wood and we have a very impressive bonfire on Beginner’s Beach. Hopefully, the conditions will be right (not too dry or too windy) for us to burn it Wednesday night! After working hard, everyone had a refreshing swim which felt great, especially as everyone had to wear long pants for the wood collection.
Both the Crogles and Herons left after lunch for their camping trips. The Crogles canoed to the other end of Panther Pond where they will spend the night camping on an awesome campsite right on the water. The Herons put their canoes in at Pleasant Lake and canoed to another awesome campsite also right on the water. They are all lucky as tonight will be a great night for camping out. Both cabins will return tomorrow morning.
A group of boys traveled to a neighboring camp to participate in a ping-pong tournament and for those here at camp, the activities to chose from during first and second period included paddle boarding, handicrafts, kayaking, riflery, sailing, woodshop, tennis, archery and water skiing. The lower bunkline had swim first and then went to their activity period and the upper bunkline went to their activity first and then swim. During free time, activities open for everyone included archery, canoeing and boating, 15& under soccer practice, kayaking, riflery, sailing, woodshop, tennis, ping-pong, and gaga ball.
Tonight was a free evening with a TwiLight game between the Forknifers and Mulch Mob. For those not playing in the game, there was a variety of activities including soccer, ultimate frisbee, tennis, basketball, whiffle ball, ping-pong, board games, etc. We are hearing that the next few days are going to be hot!!
