Overall it was a great success and was a great distraction from the storm outside. Other indoor areas were also in use; the Chapel hosted a Corn Hole Tournament with Bethany,the CE Director, the Craft Shop made coffee filter flowers and colored in mandalas. The Environmental Center watched the fork lightning over the marsh and checked out the animals there, including the new chameleon! Who is yet to be named. Any Suggestions?
The storm did clear up and moved further down the bay shortly after free time. Down at the Waterfront a bonfire was lit, the volleyball came out for a few rounds of nukem. H1, H3, H4, and H8 all roasted marshmallows when to fire died down a bit and then settled down to listen to a scary story told by Oliver, the Sailing Instructor. It was the perfect setting for a scary story, as Oliver was telling the story, the sun was setting to the West and fork lighting reached out intermittently across the sky to the East. Was quite the sight and a perfect end to the first day of this already great two week session.
I should also add, the Adventure Staff had their hands full with all campers completing the Low Ropes course yesterday morning and into the afternoon. Everyone is now moving onto the High Ropes and the Rock Wall today. Its great weather today for it and the storm took the humidity
with it, so Camp Arrowhead is in good spirits. The Pioneer units are starting their lashing projects also, with P1 and P7 making a camp classic- a Shower, which will save them going to the CATS. P3 is making a swing set/ makeshift Jungle Gym, APF is making a ping pong table and P6 is making a swing bench. Will be a great addition to the sites, they have two weeks to get it done So it better look cool!
Color Wars is on all our minds at the moment and people are quietly gearing up for the weekend. The theme is still under wraps and captains are yet to be announced, but this session is off to a flying start and it’s great to see so many familiar faces and new faces too around camp. Bring on session Three!
