Goodbyes, Swimming, and Watermelon

Posted on

Today in Girls Camp it was bittersweet. We had to say goodbye to our one weekers as they were reunited with their families. After an early breakfast of eggs and hash browns the one weekers waited in downtown Miniwanca for their families to arrive. Once all the families were back together they made their way to the Assembly where our very own photographer, Hannah Brawley, had put together an amazing slide show. Following the slide show both Girls and Boy Camp gathered in West Camp Council Circle for closing council. Campers were given polar bear shirts if they polar beared every morning. In addition to these t-shirts every camper received a Founder Medal for them to remember the be their best selves all the time.

The three weekers enjoyed a morning of relaxing, while some worked in the craft house and others played games in the hollow. We had yummy sandwiches for lunch accompanied by grapes and veggies. After another extended rest hour we all made our way down to Stony Lake for some fun in the sun. The campers had the option to sail, get on some paddle boards, or cool off by swimming. It was an awesome afternoon filled with giggles and watermelon!! After walking back to West Camp we all changed into dry clothes and made our way to dinner, which was hotdogs! Following dinner we had our famous ice cream social where the campers got to make their own bowl of ice cream with yummy toppings. After dinner we broke out into cabin time so we could have a chill and relaxing night after a jam packed day full of fun.
