Luckily, we were prepared and set up ice-cold water stations around camp to keep everyone hydrated. And today we were lucky enough to have a wonderful breeze that everyone was grateful for.
Today was full of wonderful adventures all around camp, but the most
dventurous of all was an off-camp canoe trip taken by the Adventure Pathfinders to Wolf Pit Pond. The trip lasted all morning and eventually turned into a marsh walk/ slipand-slide session!
Back at camp, many groups stayed cool at the waterfront participating in a variety of activities. P1 went banana boating, P4 went sailing and seining, and P3 went paddle boarding, a new activity offered this year on camp!
The heat didn’t deter anyone from participating in not only beloved classic camp activities like P7 who spent a double block at the rock wall this afternoon, but also new favorites like H3’s camouflage lesson with our low ropes director Harrison. Also doing activities with Harrison were P2, who went on the low ropes course, P6 who made dream catchers, and P5 who listened to scary stories our infamous “haunted” rec hall.
Also happening today, H7 made special greeting cards with our favorite camp alumni Doreen, H10 did archery, H8 and H9 dressed up as ninja turtles and princesses for dinner, and H6 cooked out lunch, just like our pioneer group regularly do! H11 made puppy chow, a delicious concoction of chex mix, chocolate, and optional peanut butter. And in the evening, H1, H2, and H4 had a beach bonfire as the sun went down.
On a sadder note, We regret to inform you of the passing of our camp guinea pig, Gibbs. He was well loved and we had a funeral for him on the beach during free time, in true Arrowhead style. We will miss him, but know that he is in guinea pig heaven!
Now the kids are tucked in bed, ready for more adventures tomorrow!
