Days of Summer at Wa-Thik-Ane: A First and Last Campfire

 

Tonight brought around the first summer campfire for the Sparks and their Moms who arrived today and the last for the week-long Guide and adventure camps leaving tomorrow. Central campfire, where we all met together as the day came to a close, was lead by the Pathfinders from the adventure Camp. Thank you Pathfinders and their leaders for a lovely evening of songs! The Guides also surprised us with an original song about being a Guide and camping at Wa-Thik-Ane; very nice ladies – maybe we should make it a Wa-Thik-Ane original on the song list!

This morning the adventure campers were up and off to the St. Sauveur water park sliding and splashing. The all returned with smiles and said it was a great day. The water was a little cold but still a good day. I know it tuckered them out because some of them took a nap on the way home.

Experienced Guides were up and off to Blueberry Island in the Rabaska (the war canoe) and a few regular canoes. Once again the lake was calm and quiet as they paddled out. The lifejacket swim at Blueberry is something the campers look forward to. Jumping in and playing games in the water at Blueberry is just one of those special Wa-Thik-Ane memories. It was amazing to watch them as they paddled home in sync and making that great big canoe glide across the water as a team.

Tomorrow we say goodbye to the campers of week two and gear back up to receive the campers of week three; old friendships to keep and new friendships to make.
