It was already warm with blue skies when the first bell ran at 7:45. A group of 36 campers and 16 counselors was already up and finishing their breakfast. They then loaded into the vans and headed to our neighboring town of Casco to run the annual 4 mile Casco Day Road Race. Its a hilly course and it was starting to get hot on the course but everyone looked great as they finished. When everyone had finished and the group picture taken, everyone headed to the fair for a well deserved snack of their choice – the most popular being fried dough or a Seadog Biscuit. They were back at camp late morning in time for a dip.
For everyone back at camp, the morning schedule was free time followed by a free swim. Activities available included canoeing & boating, water skiing, tennis, woodshop, sailing, riflery, kayaking, handicrafts, games on the field and archery.
This afternoon was regular signups. Activities included archery, soccer practice, dodgeball, handicrafts, nature, riflery, sailing, woodshop, wood splitting, and basketball. It was pretty hot this afternoon so free swim felt great! Additional activities open during Free time included a TwiLight league game between Mills & Co and Boogie Monsters which was rained out last night plus soccer, paddleboarding, and board games in the barn. Then it was off to cabin cookouts.
When the bell rang at 6:45, everyone headed with their cabin to the hall for Timanous Horseraces! Your campers can explain but the “horses” are counselors who dress up in crazy themed costumes. There were 5 races, each with 6 horses. The campers bet on their favorite horses to win. It is always a lot of fun.
