If you could picture the perfect summer day in camp, today was that day– bright, sunny skies and temperatures that reached the mid-eighties. It was not too hot for playing sports, and the sun warmed the water, taking any remaining chill out of the lake.
It was a quiet day in camp; our Warrior Indian Campers (finished 4th grade) took off early this morning to a nearby water park. The boys had an amazing day at this iconic, summertime Mecca. Our Junior Greys (finished 6th grade) spent the day shooting the rapids in ten-man rafts down the Kennebec River. Our Sub Seniors (finished 8th grade) are loving every minute of their time in Canada. Our Okee’s (finished 9th grade) boarded a plane in Las Vegas this morning and made their way back to their summer home by nightfall. With all this excitement going on outside of camp, you can imagine how peaceful it appeared to be in camp. Nevertheless, the age groups that remained took advantage of our facilities all day long.
Today was the perfect opportunity for our campers to get a little extra attention in the sport of their choice. The warm sun shining on Long Lake made it very inviting for those boys who wanted to water ski, sail, or canoe. Other campers and counselors took advantage of a quiet Art Center and spent time creating their bunk plaques. At the end of the day, our Warrior Crows (finished 1st or 2nd grades) had their movie night sleepover in the MJG Playhouse. They enjoyed watching three movies and munching on pizza into the evening.
We have more big trips heading out tomorrow, but by Friday evening we will all be back in camp for the duration of the season.
