Thursdays are quickly shaping up to be the favorite day of the week this summer. As I wrote in a blog last week, we recently premiered a new weekly event called Anything Can Happen Thursdays. The idea behind this event is that once a week the kids can come to dinner prepared to be a mix of surprised and wowed by whatever unexpected dinner our Leadership Team has planned. Tonight was definitely one of those nights!
Sunday’s are really nice days here at Camp. This morning we all slept late and had a nice relaxing start. The weather was gorgeous and after a few rainy days the entire community was excited to see some spectacular weather.
Sunday's are an important day at our brother-sister overnight camp. After recharging our batteries by sleeping a little late, our campers then spend the morning working together in their cabins. A small group of avid fisherman got up very early and joined Adventure Dave on a trip into town to participate in our first ever fishing tournament. They had a blast, and we are actually waiting to hear how one of the 12 year old boys placed. He caught 6 bass and may have won for his age bracket!
Yesterday was the end of an amazing first week at our overnight camp...so today we began the start of our fabulous second week of the summer of 2015! This morning we all slept a little later than usual. Because it was the 4th of July, many campers and counselors came to morning assembly decked out in combinations of red, white and blue. Others wore shirts with American flags on them. Others had elaborate costumes (including a few capes and sunglasses painted to look like American flags). It was great to start of the day in such a festive manner.
Welcoming new friends to our summer camp in NH
As always, we had a lot going on in and out of Camp today. Evergreen's Mt. Washington trip made it to the top of the mountain. The girls had spectacular weather, and loved the incredible view. Evergreen's dance team had a meet at another camp, and while it is still unclear to us how the judges were scoring the event, our girls were very pleased with how they performed. Kenwood's Inters and Juniors had a day at Weirs Beach. When I was with them they were playing football and frisbee in the sand, and enjoying a hot, sunny day in beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee. Evergreen's 11's, 13's and 15's took part in a massive tennis tournament, and many girls advanced to later rounds.
Just after breakfast Kenwood's 1st Year Seniors left on an excursion with Adventure Dave. They traveled to Rye Beach and learned how to paddle board on the ocean. Everyone got up on the boards and enjoyed the surf, and a great time was had by all!
