High Ropes was busy busy busy! P4 traversed our four bridges. P1 lept from the pamper plank. P6 & H2 both screamed (or held their breath) on the Giant Swing.
H9 & H10 gardened with Paul at the Environmental Center and H4 disected owl pellets. H7 dressed up as animals for lunch. H6 kayaked after siesta. H8 made cards with Doreen.
Tuesday night the Waterfront Staff hosted many Homestead groups for Pirates and Mermaids Bonfire at the beach. There was a lot of hula hooping! S'mores were roasted. Pineapple was toasted. And many a brave pirate and mer-person helped to capture the evil Sea Monster (aka Chet, a waterfront staff member) and forced him to walk the plank (or just off the bottom of the beachtower, into the bay). Thankfully no staff were injured in the making of that memory!
Wednesdays are always exciting at camp Arrowhead. Dining Hall closes after lunch to bltiz the kitchen and everyone cooks out for dinner. All of Homestead ventured out to their homes in the woods at Outpost and grilled burgers over their fires. Once the chocolate and marshmallow from their s’mores was wiped from their faces, they played capture counselor before heading back to main camp for free swim.
In the mean time - Pioneer Units cooked out in their units and gathered at the Pavilion for a Potluck Dinner. Each unit cooked for 50 people and shared what they created with the other groups. P1 made twice baked mashed potatoes with bacon, cheese, and scallions, P4 made chicken with a BBQ sauce made from a reduction of ketchup and CocaCola, and P5 made mega egg burgers with a spicy sauce. P6 and P7 tested their cookware skills and used a Wok and Dutch oven to make pineapple stirfry and baked mac and cheese. For dessert, P2 made griddle pretzels with cinnamon and sugar and P3 made campfire ice cream cones stuffed with marshmallows, banana, and chocolate. After they filled their bellies they played games together around the Pavillion.
& Adventure is Out There!
