Session C

All smiles at Campfire!
On Sunday, we welcomed campers for our second one-week session of the summer. Campers had a great first day at camp, topped off with a twist on an old favourite evening program, Zing Tong. Session C Zing Tong saw broken and unwanted toys kidnapping the toy maker to repair them. In the end, the toy maker was returned to safety by the campers.  Our traditional campfire, packed with plenty of songs and skits, was Monday evening.  Some crowd favourites were Maple Jack's performance of their hit "First Kiss", Gainey's mashup song and Huron's skit about Polar Dip.

Throughout the week, campers get the chance to try a bit of every activity offered at camp.  In the morning, cabins rotate through activities such as archery, windsurfing, arts and crafts, canoeing and Eco Skills. At the beginning of the session, campers signed up for an activity of their choice to do every day after lunch.  These activities include boating, exploring "The Range", high ropes and initiatives, drama and arts and crafts. By the end of the session, each camper will have learned a valuable skill, gained new knowledge about the natural world or developed a presentation for the entire camp to watch.

The food this session has been excellent.  On Monday, the camp was treated to Greek souvlaki chicken, and on Tuesday the kitchen made delicious homemade chicken pot pies and roasted red pepper soup.

We can't wait to see what the rest of Session C brings, and we look forward to welcoming our CK101 campers tomorrow!
