Days of Summer at Wa-Thik-Ane: The Beauty of Rising Early

IMG_1529

Tuesday morning brought an early alarm at 3:40 am. I met the Pathfinders at the bottom of the road from their site and we hiked up to the Bluff for some of Mother Nature’s wonder. We were blessed with a clear morning and watched the sun rise from behind the mountain across as we chatted. Even the sun’s reflection on Ranger lake below was part of her beauty. Then it was time to hike back down, write the blog for the day, a quick morning dip at 7 am. with some eager Brownies and Guides and off to Mic Mac for French Toast bake.

Breakfast at Mic Mac with the Guides brought on one of the day’s challenges: feed breakfast to the camper next to you and they in turn feed you. Of course there is always a way to challenge a challenge and three Guides decided to make it a “feed each other threesome.”

Later in the morning brought our weekly chance to swim the “Boat Swim Challenge.” It was a little chilly with the wind but 32 campers jumped in to swim out to the rowboat, touch it and swim back — and all were successful.

The afternoon brought boating, more swimming, Brownies on a Scavenger hunt for the colors of Guiding, hat crafts on the Guide site, all with lots of smiles and laughter to go round. Brownies were invited down to the Guide Mic Mac site for a penny fair where they were able to play lots of games and share in the sisterhood of guiding!
