It was a beautiful sunny day here at camp. Spirits were high as we laughed and played in and around the water to keep cool. Some of the highlights were an impromptu water fight during general, a sailing lesson that had everyone learning how to dump and un-dump their boats, and a windsurfing adventure that saw participants surfing to the far side of a the lake for a rendezvous.
Today was also the first “fifth period” of the Summer. This is where we change up our normal evening program and run our daytime activities after dinner. The focus is purely on fun and adventure and a good time is always had. If you looked out over the lake you would have seen the commonly referred to “golden hour” (that time of day when the sun is setting behind camp bathing the trees surrounding Tepeee Lake in a golden hue) highlighted by a lake full of sailboats, windsurfers, canoeists, kayakers, and swimmers.
Tomorrow we will say goodbye to our “long trippers” who are heading out to paddle down the Missinaibi river for 15 days! It is an exciting adventure, one that will see this brave group of young men and women shooting rapids, tramping through artic low lands, and gazing at the northern lights. We wish them all the best in their journey to come.
