Jumping in with Both Feet

With tour day behind us, we’ve jumped full swing into the momentum of camp and with the wonderful weather it feels exactly how summer camp should: full of laughter, growth, trying new things, friendships new and old, and fun in the sun.
The Junior Play was announced yesterday with a rambunctious skit and everyone who auditioned for School of Rock got a part (we can’t wait to see those juniors moving and grooving like ‘Jagger).
A 14 year old boy was carried into the Main Lodge to a standing ovation for getting his seconds in riding.
The Moose, Owls, and Loons are getting ready to head out on canoe trips, and the Brent, Whitney, and Arowhon A kids are up at the crack of dawn training their minds and bodies for the challenges they have taken upon themselves.
I was invited to lead a sunrise yoga class on a dock with the Curves, and as I reluctantly rolled out of bed at 6:30, I marvelled at the energy and ambition of these kids whom parents tell me spend their days at home in their rooms staring at electronic devices. I guess camp really does bring out the best in people.
