The summer camp season began with a great group of Moms and daughters!
The theme this week is Magical Fantasy. The campers received notes from magical characters like Tinkerbell, Snow White, Harry Potter and many more. They made story books, fairy-tale maps, magic potion and the magical ride in the Voyageur canoe!
The weather was perfect and Rapunzel shared stories about the lantern and stars for their sleep under the stars on Saturday night.
As I waved goodbye to some tired campers on Sunday afternoon, I could see the sleep fairies ready to spread their magical dust over the young campers for an afternoon nap on the car ride home.
Our camp vehicle, Hildeguard, received a makeover on Saturday for the start of the week long camps on Sunday. She works hard hauling luggage back and forth so we have to remember to treat her special. We hope you like her new look!
Sunday morning brought Brownies, Guides and Pathfinders to week one of Camping. As always, everyone was excited when Hildeguard pulled up with their luggage on site. After a delicious lunch and some fun welcome-activities, campers made their way down to waterfront for swimming on a hot summer’s day.
Central barbecue welcomed us all back together for hamburgers, veggies, salads, chips and an ice cream sandwich to top it off.
As I made the rounds in the evening, I could hear and see the wonderful campfires happening at all the sites with storytelling, campfire games and songs.
Happy trails until tomorrow,
