Time Flies….

Time sure flies when you’re having fun!  This weekend was awesome! Traditions Day kicked it off…we woke up to watch the beginning of Bec Swim, where the ladies of Bec broke the long-standing record for most laps swam in a day.  They broke the record!! The guys of Bago completed their Bago Sprint around Echo Lake! Congratulations Bec and Bago.  Then we saw Jem and Debbie and ten of the campers’ favorite staff members get wet and dirty during our annual Chaos.   Each of the age groups then participated in their traditions, including the  Baxter Car Wash for charity.  We finished the day with our first Dance Show where the girls who have been working hard all summer long got to show off their moves and boy, did that work pay off.  We then headed to the Council Fire for an all-camp campfire led by the Super Seniors.  Saturday was a busy program day with intercamps and camping trips and Sunday was the Luau for Acadia and Apache where our youngest campers danced the hula and limbo-ed the evening away on the waterfront to some breezy Hawaiian tunes.  Monday was Western Day and we brought in a professional square dance caller to teach some moves.  We also had our annual Gold rush – definitely a camp favorite.  Visiting Day is just around the corner but we have plenty to do before then including our first musical production of the summer…Once On This Island.
