DSCN0196As the mist rolled over the mountain tops over camp, the men of Timberlake made their way down the hill towards breakfast for what was undoubtedly another great day at camp. This morning for breakfast the guys were treated to some eggs, hash browns, and biscuits. After breakfast, we had the morning yell led Big Piney Counselor James C. and he brought the THUNDER!

Chapel today was led by Counselor Davis B. and talked about the resurrection of Jesus Christ and why it means so much for us as believers. After cabin cleanup the guys headed to their first period activities.

In the first two periods of the day, a lot of guys earned bars towards marks for their promotions. In Paintball, Thompson B. got his gold! In Fencing there were two bronze bars that were given out to Jack A. and Connor Y.! Avery S. also earned his silver in soccer in the morning! Lunch was an absolute gem that consisted of, Stromboli, Caesar salad, and everyone’s favorite, s’more pockets! Also it was another victory for the SEMINOLES in yesterday’s activity of Stealing Skins! Congrats Noles!

During Free Time today, the guys had a Free Swim and in swimming, Hugh S., Avery S., and A.J. R. each earned their bronze bar in swimming. Also during Free Time, Connor S., Elliot J., and A.J. R., earned their bronzes in Archery!

In the afternoon, Nate S. caught a 10’’ Rainbow Trout on a fly fishing trip and Fennell M. also caught a Rainbow Trout as well! During Climbing, Hugh S., Elliot J., Carter S., and Eli C., all got their bronze bar! Finally, in Mountain Biking, Anthony G. and , worked on the pump track today and learned a lot more about downhill riding.

For dinner, we chowed down on some roast beef, mashed potatoes and broccoli with a lovely dessert of brownies! Tonight’s evening activity was The Great Escape and we will have the results of that tomorrow.

It’s important to remember with tomorrow being the last day at camp that each one of the guys here at Camp Timberlake is so special. We as counselors look forward to spending time with these boys and watch them grown into wholesome men and leaders of their peers. It truly is a wonderful thing to witness.
