Session 2 has been off to a great start here at camp. This morning, we started with a breakfast of sausage links, french toast sticks, and chants of “U-S-A U-S-A”. We then had an extra patriotic morning yell before going to chapel. Activities got off to a great start.

Today was the first day for Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday classes, so each class started off with a safety talk before jumping into their first lesson. There was also a mountain biking trip to Dupont today. Lunch was ‘Tacos in a Bag’, a camp favorite, which consists of a bag of Fritos piled high with cheese, lettuce, tomato, beef, and beans. There, the winners of today’s cabin cleanup (Greybeard) and yesterday’s Mission Impossible (Iroquois) were announced.

From there we had rest time and then free time including Trading Post and Freedom Free Swim. The campers had the opportunity to swim, dive, blob, use the waterslide, kayak, or paddleboard.

During activities today, Seth W. learned his Figure-8 follow through knot and practiced bouldering in rock climbing. Aubrey S. guided Alberto C. on his bronze rocket during rocketry, and Spencer M. contributed to helping lead that class. Juan Pablo O. learned how to traverse high inclines on a mountain bike, and soccer played an epic game of world cup. Dinner was poppyseed chicken casserole, broccoli, and rice, and dessert was chocolate cake. Then came the big announcement of our evening activity! The lower cabins (Tomahawk, Little Piney, Big Piney) would be playing capture the flag, and the upper cabins (Stompers Knop, Little Slaty, Big Slaty, and Greybeard) would be playing ultimate basketball.

Signing off,
