All of our trips have now returned to camp for the session, and its time for our final days of this two-week stretch. Saco, Baxter, and Magalloway all returned today in high spirits. Between the rain drops each of them had a great paddle and/or hike out today.

Here in camp, activities proceeded normally with kayaking, waterskiing, and other waterfront elements leading the way. Now things have really picked up. This morning at breakfast we had under 50 people in the Dinning Hall. With our three hike groups back, along with all our staff members we’ll have nearly 100 at dinner.

All of those campers and staff members are eager to participate in tonight’s game. It’s the famous Polish Ping Pong Tournament. Everyone in camp will bring their A-game for this bracketed competition, but only one camper will hoist the fabled Golden Paddle tonight when it’s all done.

WILD 1 and 2 spent the day together today at Slide Down Falls, a beautiful waterfall near camp with spots for swimming and jumping into the water from various heights. Now they’ve returned as well and are preparing for a full night of activities.

Camp is full, busy, and ready for a great few days together. It’s hard to believe its nearly been 2 weeks already. Check in on Friday for the final post of the session.
