Hello from Miniwanca! Welcome back to the blog. Today we started this beautiful golden day off with Morning Stretch led by Cabin 24 on Adventure Daringly. We also all danced to the Rocketgizer of 500 miles. Campers then headed to a tasty breakfast of egg and cheese sandwiches. Fueled up for their day they headed out to CORE and Interest Groups 1 and 2. Sailing had some perfect winds out on Stony Lake while in the Crafthouse campers made fascinating kumihimo bracelets.
With much joy, the community rushed to the Eating Lodge for lunchtime TACO TUESDAY! We all sang our taco song and enjoyed a magnificent meal. After, campers had Rest Hour followed by Quad Games – Smashball and Toppleball this week. The afternoon Interest Groups were full of more fun, games, and laughter as campers sailed and paddle boarded, crafted and did yoga, made projects in the woodshop and more.
After a fun Free Time hour, it was dinner and campers filled their bodies with ravioli and garlic bread. Tonight’s Nights Doings included an epic game of Grab Bag with Jensen! The Draws pulled out another amazing win. As Grab Bag drew to a close, Hannah dared the campers to stretch their mental fold and create objects that could be thrown the furthest, the most accurately, and stay in the air the longest. The Trails completed the challenge with a first in two out of three categories and brought home a win!
To close our night, we ended on the beach with Evening Reflection by the Voyageurs on the theme of adventuring daringly. They reminded camp to dare to be their best, not only in big ways, but in small ways like getting outside each day. The Voyageurs are also pushing towards their best as they depart for their kayaking adventure in the Georgian Bay on Sunday. Tonight the sunset was as beautiful as the people here at Miniwanca. Now, campers sleep dreaming of their daring adventures to come tomorrow.
