One of the most magical times on Planet Arowhon is the hour before breakfast. I was invited to watch an Arowhon A class (a prestigious award in style swimming and diving), this morning, and to be honest when my alarm rang all I wanted to do was roll over and go back to sleep. However, […]Continue
Day 2 Down and Going Strong!
We’ve hit our groove already for what we know is going to be a great rest of the month on Planet Arowhon! It’s truly feeling like summer now and the heat’s got us pumped to get on and in the lake. Windsurfers, sailboats, canoes, kayaks, and paddle-boards converged on Tepee Lake today in a flotilla […]Continue

The Sun Sets on First Month 2017
The cold wind outside today only served to make the inside of the cabins cozier as campers and stuff snuggled in together to enjoy their last day on The Planet. Packing went smoothly and we spent the rest of the day doing warm fuzzies and cabin bonding activities. Many a marshmallow was roasted, bus letters written, […]Continue
The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow!
The last couple days of each session always have a different feeling then the rest of camp. It is clear we are winding down but at the same time winding up. Its hard to put your finger on what it is that the camp is feeling right now. Its almost as if everyone’s energy levels […]Continue
Knights and Dragons and Jesters Oh My!
It’s hard to believe that it’s already time for the end-of-month banquet that everyone’s been waiting for: Cotillion! The Senior Girls have been working all month long to make beautiful decorations to transform the ML into a medieval castle. When we entered dinner tonight, we were greeted by banners, shields, paper crowns, and royal scrolls […]Continue
A Dream Come True
The sun was shining again today over Tepee Lake and it was a perfect day for the Little Mermaid-themed swimming special day. Campers sang and swam and bounced and blobbed to their hearts content as they helped Ariel (a.k.a. climbing instructor Evan who looked remarkable in a bright red wig) overcome obstacles to reunite with his […]Continue
To Green Leach and Beyond!
It’s finally feeling like summer in Algonquin Park with the sun shining bright and the lake warming up. Today was jam-packed full of activities with not 4 but 5 awesome periods. Evening activity was the weekly 5th period where campers sign up to go to activities where they play around just for fun. It was […]Continue
A Circus of a Day
The brief rain storm that started the afternoon didn’t dampen our spirits at all – in fact in true Arowhon style, our campers jumped right in to the puddles of fun! The rain cleared up though and the much-anticipated Circus Day 2017 proceeded without a hitch. From the spectacular skit after breakfast featuring acrobats, clowns, […]Continue
New things everyday.
Being a camp staff is never boring; there’s always someone to talk to, a game to play, or something that needs to be done. One needs look no further than my current google autofill results to grasp the wide variety of things that might arise in a day – currently, ‘How to remove silly putty […]Continue
