Long Trip is Back!!!

After 10 days of trail blazing the Temagami wilderness, navigating exhilarating white water, and conquering challenging portages, they paddled back onto Teepee Lake with style. The entire camp ran down to the waterfront to meet them, […]

LIT Power!

It was a crazy day on Teepee Lake! The wind was HUGE and sailboats and windsurfers were flying across the lake. Campfire cooking made BLT’s and the wind carried the delicious aromas all around camp. We welcomed some Inter Boys back from their canoe trips and look forward to seeing more of them tomorrow! The […]


Behind the Curtain

So sorry I didn’t blog last night. We had a Senior Staff meeting that went on quite late. I’m telling you about it because once, when my own kids were young and we were on one of those necessary visits to DisneyWorld, we were lucky enough to be riding the monorail mid-day, at a quiet […]
