Off and Running

After a busy day of swim tests, physicals, and capture the flag, we are finally underway with our normal schedule of activities. 

The day started with our oldest campers beginning the drive to Quetico Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada for their ten-day canoeing trip known as “The Canadian”. Our fifteen year olds will be back from Canada on July 1st.  This wasn’t the only trip that went out this morning, our 14-year-olds began their five-day hiking trip on the Superior Hiking Trail in Minnesota and our first group of 13-year-olds began their four-day canoeing trip on the Brule River.

After breakfast, the 14 cabins still in camp began their first three-days of activities. For the first time this summer, all of our program areas are filled with campers playing and learning new skills.  From the climbing wall and archery range to the athletic fields and waterfront, camp is fully underway. 

Tonight, we had our staff skit show where our counselors and non-cabin staff were able to introduce themselves to our campers by showing off talents, performing skits, and playing music.
