Monday, July 9

And yet another perfect summer day!  The high was 88 this afternoon, blue sky, and a nice breeze for sailing – doesn’t get much better than that!   It is predicted to be even warmer tomorrow!

It was a regular morning with the exception of a group of soccer players leaving half way through breakfast to travel to a nearby camp to participate in a 6-a-Side soccer tournament.  For everyone else, there were regular sign-ups and swims.  Activities to chose from included  archery, baseball, nature, riflery, sailing, woodshop, beginner waterskiing, canoeing and boating, and rugby.   The Eagles spent a period canoeing in anticipation of their camping trip later today. 

Monday is laundry day so everyone came to lunch with their full laundry bags — the clean laundry will be back tomorrow after lunch.   The 6-a-side team arrived back in time to take a quick dip before lunch.  They were victorious this morning so headed back to play again this afternoon.     The Eagles left on their camping trip shortly after lunch.  They were transported with their canoes to put in on the Songo River where they canoed through the locks,  continued down the  river and into Sebago Lake where they will camp right on the shore in the state park.   They have a perfect night to sleep out!

This afternoon activities to sign up for included archery, the climbing wall, handicrafts, kayaking, riflery, paddleboarding, sailing, woodshop and regular water skiing.   Free swims were a great way to cool off and enjoy the lake!   Free time activities included archery, canoeing and boating, soccer, handicrafts, riflery, sailing, woodshop, tennis, basketball, badminton, ping-pong, board games, etc.  

After dinner was a free evening with a Twilight League game, soccer, ultimate frisbee, leap frog, noodle baseball, tennis, basket ball, canoeing, gaga ball, etc.  When the bell rang at 7:45, everyone headed to their cabins and then for a quick dip before getting ready for bed.  Always a perfect ending to a perfect day!
