Today was a great second day of session 1B at camp! This morning, after waking up to the bugle and the campers cleaning their cabins, the campers went down to the Tucker Inn for some breakfast. They enjoyed a traditional breakfast of potatoes, eggs, and biscuits. Following breakfast, the campers headed to chapel, where they praised God by singing songs such as “The Banana Song” and “How He Loves”. Then Tweedle Doe Counselor Anne Dillon L. told her true story about going to an art museum with her father. After chapel the girls went to their tribe meetings to learn some new cheers, and then it was off to activities!
Before beginning any activities, campers listened to a quick safety talk to make sure that they had fun while also following the rules. Then it was time to get started! At Lake Doris, kayaking classes began to learn their wet exits so that they could become more comfortable with being under the water. In the swimming lanes, Eve Q. and Kaitlin D. both completed the requirements for two of the four strokes in working towards their bronze bars in competitive swimming. Meanwhile, further down the hill, campers made pinch pots and tissue paper paintings in the Enchanted Barn.
When morning activities ended, campers headed back to the Tucker Inn for a classic camp lunch: Taco in a Bag! Towards the end of lunch, Ellie F. and Rachel C. performed their self-written skit for all of camp, in order to work towards their respective bars in drama. The skit was a comedy that followed two girls, Mac and Cheese, on their quest through camp to discover the meaning of friendship. Lunch concluded with a birthday celebration of singing and cake for twins Anne and Christine M.
Later, after rest hour and a snack at trading post, the girl went to their third and fourth period classes. Up on Pippin Hill, climbing class was scaling the upper tower and Mary Richard E.learned how to tie a useful climbing knot. Above them at the mark, yoga was practicing some new poses. Mary Avrett B. taught some of her friends the warrior one pose. Fitness class ran the path around camp and to the lodge, where they did planks and squats.
After dinner tonight, campers will participate in a mystery tribal activity. Last night, Base Jumping was cancelled due to weather interference, so the steaks are high tonight between the Choctaw, Seminole, and Iroquois tribes. Then campers will head back up to their cabins to get ready for bed and prepare for an even better day number three!
