Jeff’s Thoughts: There’s no “I” in “Team”
With just a few days to go before the start of the Camp Takajo Olympics, the whole camp is on edge, wondering how and when the Olympics will break this summer. Candidly, the group leaders’ creativity scares me, as they try to outdo themselves with creative ways of surprising our campers.  The Olympics will last for four days, culminating with a whacked-up relay, which will feature two boys competing in the pie-eating contest. The Takajo Olympics are all about participation. Every camper will be an integral part of the four days of competition. There’s no “I” in “team”.

  • The Warrior Crow campers and counselors will be having a sleepover at Mert’s Place tonight, which is our camp movie house. They get to watch a few funny movies, have some snacks, and sleep over. As always, they are going to have a blast.  All of Warrior camp is enjoying a beautiful Maine afternoon.
  • Yesterday the Warrior Braves went to Funtown Splashtown amusement park for the day. They went from the water park to the amusement park, soaking up all the fun they could for one day. The Warrior Indians are going to Water Country tomorrow for their own fun day in a water park on their big trip.  And finally, the Crows will be heading to Kahuna Laguna, an indoor water park, on Thursday.
  • Wow, what a beautiful day. This is the kind of weather Maine was made for! People travel from all over the world to see Long Lake, and we get to live on it all summer. There is a full day of waterskiing family style, sailing, canoeing and swimming in the

    warm sunshine. The water is a perfect 78 degrees, and we have a light wind out of the east at 5-10 mph. The day at the waterfront couldn’t be more spectacular.

  • Yesterday our Junior Grey campers became Senior Intermediates for the day. For the week, they are the oldest campers here at camp. They are getting a taste of what Senior life is all about at Camp Takajo.  They spent some time last night at the Senior Rec.
  • Hall watching movies and having snacks. For the next few days, they will continue their (temporary) Senior privileges.
  • Today, the Junior Greys left for their whitewater-rafting trip on the Kennebec River.  The Junior Greens spent the night at Sunday River Ski Resort and, today, are on to Big Adventure Center and topping it off with a movie this afternoon.
  • The Senior Okeechobee campers will be spending one last night in Las Vegas, and will be returning tomorrow. Tomorrow, the Sub Seniors are on their way from Quebec City to Montreal, and soaking up as much culture as they can.  Have fun everyone!
