Another great day at camp! I felt like I had to add a feature picture with some sunshine in it! A little rain fell here and there, but all in all it was a great day. I enjoyed hosting our Starter 1 families for their closing day this morning. What a great bunch of boys. I am certain these guys will be leading the charge for the next group of awesome High Rocks boys. I think everyone of them want to come back for a longer session next year. I can’t wait.
Saturday activities tend to have a little more of a fun component to them along with their normal instruction. Fishing had a blast baiting bluegill at the swim docks while trying to catch them with a net. There were many success stories. There was more fun over at the canoe docks where the guys played a little combination of water polo, canoeing, and canoe fill-ups. What a blast! Horseback riding was back at it today with everyone getting out on their horses today; a welcomed event from the last few days. Mountain biking held strong and hit the trails again today; a muddy events indeed!
Tonight we hosted the older ladies from Camp Illahee for a square dance. I drove the younger half over to Illahee for a smaller version of the same event. What an awesome place for a girl to go to camp. Laurie and Gordon do an excellent job. My oldest daughter will be heading there later this summer for her first overnight camp experience. I can’t wait to hear all about it. Anyhow, everyone enjoyed the social event and a change of pace from the past week.
It’s off to bed for some much needed rest…and I’m pretty sure the Krispy Kreme fairy is coming tonight! Shhhh, don’t tell! It’s a secret 🙂 . Tomorrow brings more adventure and excitement. I can’t wait to tell you about it! Have a great night. Enjoy the pictures.
