Keeping the Rain at Bay

Super Eagle and the waterfront team juggled the water schedule to make sure everyone was able to complete their swim tests and that those campers who wanted to would be able to participate in the Boat Swim Challenge. All was done by noon and the rain held off. All things considered, even with the gloomy forecast, we were very lucky and ended up with no rain until some showers began around midnight when everyone was tucked into bed.



While swimming and boating went ahead at waterfront, some Guides had a blast entertaining themselves with body paint. I have met a lot of wildlife in my days here at camp but none that looked quite as artistic as the creatures I saw yesterday. Even those who were just watching had a smile to share.


Since the weather held off, we were able to enjoy grill cheese on buddy burners — little stoves made with a large can over a small can willed with wax soaked corrugated cardboard. What do you do when you have over fifty campers that want to use buddy burners and not enough little burners for the coffee can stoves? Pathfinders had the answer: make a mini twig fire under your can!



The afternoon brought about hiking for some and whittling for others. Pathfinders cooked supper for their leaders and everyone was able to enjoy s’mores over the campfire for their evening snack. What is better than good friends, a campfire’s glow and s’mores? Am I making you jealous of the campers? Come join us for our Mom & Me weekend — August 3-5th. Moms and daughters of all ages are welcome!
