Monday, July 30

It was a little chilly when the first bell rang at 7:15 but it turned into another beautiful day – clear skies with a high of 81.

A group of soccer players left at the end of breakfast for Camp Agawam to attend a 6-A-Side soccer tournament.  Other activities this morning included archery, rugby, handicrafts (scratch drawing), paddle board, nature, riflery, sailing, woodshop, tennis and water skiing.  Everyone also had instructional swim. 

Everyone brought their dirty laundry up on their way to lunch.  The soccer players returned home for lunch before returning to play again this afternoon.  

An optional camping trip, the Flapjack Trip (there will be amazing pancakes for breakfast), left at the beginning of the first activity period by canoe for the other end of the lake where they will camp for the night. 

Afternoon activities included water skiing, tennis, woodshop, riflery, beginner kayaking, handicrafts, talent show practice, climbing wall, and archery.  Free swims were at Crows, Main and Beginners Beach.   Additional activities during Free Time included tennis, basketball, gaga ball, ping-pong and board games.

“Danny the Barber” arrived a little before dinner and setup shop on the kitchen porch.  Danny has been cutting hair at at Timanous for 40+ years!!  Campers came during dinner and free evening to get their hair cut.  

It was a great night for a free evening which included the last TwiLight League game of the regular season — the Bamboozlers vs. the Forknifers plus ultimate frisbee, tennis, basketball, soccer, ping-pong, gaga ball, talent show practice and more.  Then when the bell rang at 7:45, there were dips.  Another great day!!!
