Friday was our last full day of camp before the week end. Mic Mac Guides survived their experienced camp. Last night when I stopped by just before central campfire, girls were blowing on their fire trying to get it burn better. They said that cooking meals over the fire was harder than they thought but they learned a lot. Personalities become a big part of working as a team when girls are tired as well, but they persevered — all good life lessons. Well done ladies and leaders Donna and Wendy for your skills and patience with the girls!
Waterfront was busy as usual with Brownies in the rowboats and the older girls in canoes. Afternoon was scheduled to be a trip to Blueberry Island for the Guides, Pathfinders and a Ranger. However, Mother Nature changed the itinerary with strong winds. They pushed off shore only to paddle and work hard at heading in the right direction but the winds were so strong that they were not moving. I heard the whistle blow twice as Pip, our waterfront director, made the call to cancel the trip to Blueberry. The girls were definitely disappointed but each and every one of them should be proud they made it out to the middle of the lake and back without tipping. Everyone was happy to be able to have some swim time and cool off in the not so peaceful waters of Wa-Thik-Ane today. Especially since swim time ended or started with tuck; their daily two pieces of candy of their choice from the candy table.
Guides and Pathfinders hope to end their week sleeping under the stars tonight if Mother Nature keeps the rain away.
