We could not have asked for a more beautiful day to kick off camping season. After a delicious pancake breakfast and a great Chapel (where we learned about the theme of the summer - Peace) the activities began! Many units such as H-3, P-4 and P-5 took this block to play ice breaker games to get to know each other a bit better. Day Camp, H-3, H-7, P-1, P-2 and P-3 all visited the craft shop to glaze their awesome tiles. Some campers went for abstract designs while others showed their affection to camp and painted an assortment of Arrowhead inspired pictures on their tiles.
A hearty lunch of chicken sandwiches and a relaxing siesta helped campers refuel for their afternoon activities. Every group enjoyed some afternoon time in the pool during for Free Swim. Many units were lucky enough to spend part of their afternoon at the waterfront too. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky so counselors made sure that campers lathered up on their sunscreen before partaking in any of those activities. Freddy the boat driver took H-7, P-2 and P-4 out for a spin on the banana boat. The bay was a bit choppy today due to the wind so it was an extra fun ride! Both Day Camp groups, H-3 and P-6 all used the wind in their favor and went out for a sail. Meanwhile H-9 stayed on dry on the shore and held a tea party.
The day was capped off with a Pioneer Mustache Party bonfire at the beach. Some campers hula hooped the night away while others worked on toasting the perfect marshmallow for their smores. A memorable night was had by all. We look forward to many more action packed days not only in this session but in throughout the summer!
We will be tending to the blog regularly and apologize for not posting this sooner! All of the staff has been putting in a great deal of effort to ensure the campers have a session to remember.
