It was another great day at camp! The morning started with another assembly filled with camps greatest hits. The guys were fully warmed up and ready to go by the time they hit their first activities. Little cabin in the woods was adapted to include Mondo Cabin in the Woods an all-time camp favorite.
Out in camp many of our horseback riders enjoyed trail rides today and enjoyed the shade that they provided. It was a busy day on the lake with sailing, paddle boarding, canoeing and swimming all enjoying the benefits of a cool mountain lake. Many boaters found opportunities to find themselves taking a dip in the lake. Today was a big day in crafts with the camper’s favorite tie dye day. I can’t wait to see how they turn out. The colors look to be very rich this summer and there were a few new patterns in addition to the classic spiral.
The climbers enjoyed a great day out at Horseshoe Rock today. They had great weather all day and just as they loaded back into the van they encountered a nice afternoon shower to cool things off a bit. The paddlers had a great day on the Nantahala River. They enjoyed the cool water on this hot summer day! Mountain Biking headed over to Jackson Park to have some fun on the jumps. The rollers and table tops were some of their favorite elements at the park.
Spruce Pine and Outpost cabins headed to Sliding Rock and Dolly’s for their Chill Night. Summertime mountain living at its finest with a slide in a chilly mountain stream and ice cream to top it off!
I think the guys will all sleep well tonight. It has been another busy day full of activities, games and friends. I have overheard several staff saying that they know they will not be ready to let these guys go at the end of the session. They are getting pretty attached to this great group and that is fun to watch!
Have a great evening!
