The ladies of H6 and H8 tested their bravery on the plank at the high ropes course while H10 and P2 got adventurous at the rock wall. The men from P3 and P7 also experienced excitement at our high ropes course as they tried out our high ropes swing. H5 and H9 got in some group bonding on our low ropes course, testing their minds and bodies with challenges from our low ropes supervisor Ben.
So far session five has been full of crafts. For the first time we’ve been holding some of our craft shop blocks poolside and the results have been great! The gentlemen of H13 made boats and held a competition to see whose stayed afloat the longest while the ladies of H7 and P5 started making “world beads” with dirt from camp. H2 made sand candles down at the waterfront and P1 worked on painting some tiles in the craft shop. The guys from H3 and P4 tried their luck at tie dye while our oldest campers, the Adventure Pathfinders, made their own mini totem poles to take home.
A lot of groups have also been taking advantage of our natural environment. H6 made tea from sassafras leaves and H8 held a cookout on the beach. H1 and H4 both went on guided nature walks and P5 got up to watch the sun rise over the bay. Our Pioneer campers finished off their evening Tuesday with a bonfire at the beach while some of our Homestead groups went to water aerobics with our fabulous pool staff. Overall it’s been an amazing first few days at camp. This may be our last session but that doesn't mean we're slowing down so keep checking the blog for more updates!
