Opening day for week two brought sunshine after welcome thundershowers during the night. It is always a pleasure to greet returning campers and their parents ready for another exciting week at Wa-think-ane.
Luggage is delivered to their sites and the excitement of settling in with tentmates for the week begins. Brownies have been treated to the new canvas tents this year, something we hope to extend to more campers next year.
It was lunch and then waterfront time! Swim testing takes place and because we have a lot of returning girls with completed swim test, we were able to give all of the groups some playtime in the water. On a hot day, it is sure enjoyed by campers and their leaders!
Now there’s just enough time to head back to site to dry off, change and return down to waterfront for a delicious barbecue meal all together. Afterwards we will end a great first day with a campfire, singing songs and telling stories with our fellow campers.
Thank you to all the volunteers and staff who made arrival day such a success!
