Check-in day was a little wetter than we expected, but it was still a success. After getting settled into the cabins, campers got to sign up for their weekly clinics. What do we mean by clinics? Clinics are the weekly activities that your campers get to participate in. In their clinics each day they learn about their activity, advance their skill and have fun doing it. Our clinics this week include canoeing, outdoor cooking, arts and crafts, free swim, advanced sports, soccer, basketball, kayaking, survival, nature and science, archery spa, and splash ( all water activities). Despite the weather we did have a nice break for the campers to head to our pool for their swim test. All campers take the swim test and then receive a designated color arm band, letting counselors and lifeguards know their swimming ability.
Dinner tonight was Chicken Parmesan with spaghetti, Texas toast, Cali-blend salad bar served with milk and juice. At lunch and at dinner we always offer a peanut butter and jelly bar for our campers.
We kick off this camp session with an opening campfire- due to the weather our opening campfire will be in the lodge around our large fireplace. Opening campfire is the culmination of the day. Our summer staff counselors will sing songs, perform skits, and set the tone for the entire week. Even sitting in the lodge there is something magical about opening campfire- it just gives the welcome home feeling.
