Lazy Man’s Morning could not have come at a better time. After back-to-back visiting days with warm and humid conditions, our boys were fatigued. The added sleep was a blessing this morning. The unstructured morning was just what we needed as boys made their way leisurely to the dining hall for their favorite treats from Dunkin’ Donuts, cereal, and hot chocolate. The skies were bright blue, the humidity left the air, and it was a perfect day for laser tag at Camp Takajo!
Campers in each age group had the chance to go up to the senior baseball field, which was turned into a laser tag battlefield, and participate in this fun activity. It was the perfect distraction after an amazing weekend.
During rest hour today, campers had their nurses’ inspection, a head-to-toe body check. We also had the opportunity to remove all the candy that was brought into camp. Interestingly, our boys were only too happy to get the junk food out of the bunks. The candy was melting, and the skunks were out in force last night. Since our boys never go hungry around here, and we provide daily snacks three times a day, there is really no place for this unwanted sugar.
We said goodbye to our great friend and outstanding camp physician, pediatric surgeon Dr. Bob Belin, who took amazing care of us during the past four weeks. We welcomed back Dr. Rick Warner, an ER physician, who has fond memories of being a camper and a counselor at Camp Takajo. Dr. Warner has taken over the duties as camp physician.
As we turned the page on another week, we set our sights on Big Trips and a wide range of special activities. The best at camp is still yet to come.
