What a busy Friday! We started the day off with a camp favorite – geometry breakfast! Something about eggs, sausage and biscuits all being the same shape just makes it more fun. From there, it was off to chapel and our morning activities. We’ve had several trips out of the last few days, from trail running to kayaking to backpacking. I am proud of these girls for seeking out adventure!
Backpacking trip to Tabel Rock: Margaret J., Mary Richard E., Caroline M., McLaine D., Libby N., Ann H., Ash S., Eliza S., Greer H., Ella R., Taylor S., Sarah T. and Savannah T.

While there were several out on trips today, we had a big day in activities. We had a cookout themed lunch filled with hamburgers, watermelon and curly fries. Shortly after, Tweedle Doe was making s’mores in backpacking. Tweedle Dot had a trading post picnic this afternoon. Maggie B. almost got a bullseye in archery! Virginia B. has been working on a project for her dad in pottery. Sloan D. won her fencing match as did Mary Adams K., Aubrey Ann C., and Leah B.
With all campers safely back on camp, Susana A. thought that spaghetti and meatballs was the best last meal for her session. Cross Patch is having a s’mores and puppies party this evening as their post evening — fitting since our puppies are named after a s’more!
Campers are currently heading up to the campfire for the final White Feather ceremony of 1A. During cabin time this evening, the counselors will go to each camper to describe the gifts and abilities that they have noticed in her. This is where a girl who may never earn a White Feather Promotion, or a Gold Bar, or be elected to a tribal office, can be told about what we see God doing in her life and her and her contribution to the camp family.
The bars earned this week are as follows:
Silver Sydney C. and Collins H.
Silver Hadley D.
Silver Mollie M.
Silver Anna L., Anna E., Lucy W., Emily M.
Gold Lucy W. and Emily M.
