Today showed us what Arowhon campers are really made of: positivity, kindness, contribution to community, flexibility, and fun!
We woke up to the soothing sound of rain on our roofs, and the “silver sunshine” continued for most of the morning, and returned with a vengeance after dinner. But we didn’t let the rain keep us in bed or inside – instead, we put on our rain gear (or for some, bathing suits) and went outside to play. We jumped in puddles, did slip and slide, and continued sailing, swimming, canoeing, and surfing before warming up with plenty of hot chocolate in the camp director’s cozy cabins.
We were excited to welcome our 30 Mini Campers (kids between 6 and 9 coming for a weekend taste of camp) and show them what Arowhon spirit means. Our Juniors hosted a Q&A with them and told them about the best parts of camp, the Inters helped set and clear their tables, and the Seniors performed some wonderful campfire acts for them. It’s heartwarming to see how much camp pride our campers have and how committed they are to living and promoting our values of Caring, Respect, and Learning.
We also welcomed back the Inter long trip today and had the second round of our annual sailing regatta (Wayne Peck) in which Senior Director Joanne Kates with her crew of two Loons are currently in first place.
Can’t wait for another day of fun in whatever weather tomorrow gives us!
