The Hatchet Hunt

Last night was our annual Hatchet Hunt!

The Hatchet Hunt is an event where every cabin competes to try and find a hatchet hidden somewhere on camp property first. The game is a combination of a scavenger hunt and a race and requires every camper’s participation. 

During the hunt, the entire camp is given a series of clues one by one and each cabin is able to send two runners to the location where they believe the hatchet is located. 

In the end, cabin S1 was the winner when the campers eventually realized that the hatchet was hidden at Swim Point.  It took the campers until the very last clue to narrow the location of the hatchet down to its location under a bench near the waterfront
