We woke to another beautiful day! Sunny, warm but not much breeze and a high of 84.
This morning was a regular morning. Activities to sign up for included archery, instructional Ultimate Frisbee, handicrafts, riflery, sailing, woodshop and tennis.
The Flap Jack Trip returned mid-morning — “amazing” was the word used to describe both the trip and the pancakes!! (a few pictures have been posted under 2nd session trips)
As we came out of lunch, everyone picked up their clean laundry bag — 1899 pounds of laundry was returned having been washed, dried and folded in less than 24 hours!
The 6-A-Side soccer team returned to Agawam this afternoon to play in the finals. They played hard but lost to Agawam. However, the team, the counselors and our spectators were commended by the opposing team’s director for their excellent sportsmanship. We are very proud of them all.
This afternoon’s sign-up activities included archery, handicrafts (tie-dying), nature, riflery, sailing, woodshop and T-Hoops, an annual basketball tournament with 3 person teams. It was pretty hot this afternoon so free swims felt awesome. T-Hoops continued through Free Time along with the other afternoon activities with additional activities of gaga ball, ping-pong and games.
It was a great night for a Free Evening — in addition to the regular activities (ultimate frisbee, soccer, tennis, basketball), there was tennis/kickball baseball (ask you campers about that one!), water games on Beginners Beach and a canoe paddle to Red River. When the bell rang at 7:45, many campers chose to take dips before getting ready for bed which is a great way to end a perfect summer day.
