Yesterday was a lovely day. It was warm, breezy, humid, and there were not clouds to be found. Don’t worry, we’re making sure your kids stay hydrated, especially today as it’s quite humid and warm.
On the Aspire front, they went for a Nature Hike yesterday, escorted by Frank, to the Beaver Dam. The water around the dam is mostly dried up, so they were able to walk across the dried up mud to quite close to the dam itself. When they got too close though, the mud got thicker and the passage to the Beaver Dam was a bit trickier. It didn’t stop a few of our girls, though. Off came the shoes, and they plodded through the mud until they were right beside the dam, able to see down into what a beaver dam looks like close up. Frank did not take off his shoes, though, which explained why when Nancy and I returned from North Bay, his shoes were outside of the door, letting the mud dry and cake up so it could be banged off.
Apparently Campfire was a huge success last night, led by Aspire kids once again. Cassandra and Stephanie brought some new skits and songs into the mix from a different camp they’ve attended, and were able to lead the Aspire and Bravo group in the new fun. Here at Camp, we’re always looking for new ways to be goofy and loud at Campfire, so while I wasn’t there, I’m sure it was fantastic!
Bravo spent the day doing their usual rehearsal blocks, and then in the afternoon they got to take the Pontoon Boat across our little bay here, around the corner to Crown Island. I wasn’t there, and I have no pictures, but I hear they had fun all around.
After dinner, the Pontoon Boat was put to good use again (what would we do without this thing?? Kayak to the island, and drive to town, I imagine, but where’s the fun in that!?). Chris and Sherri (along with Madelyn and Isaac) took the support staff (those who aren’t in cabins) into Magnetawan on the boat for ice cream. I did go on this activity, because even on your day off, who doesn’t love free ice cream!? Naturally, I also took tons of pictures along the way.
