And that’s a wrap…

Community Week is over. We had an amazing week with some not so amazing weather and everybody was able to enjoy putting some new spins on their favorite activities. We ended the week strong with a couple of everybody’s favorite activities: Luau night and dodgeball night.

We had the weather clear up for luau on Monday night and everybody had a blast with an outside dinner, tiki decorating of one of their teammates, and canoe races. The counselors managed to successfully keep the campers from finding out about dodgeball night and when the announcement was made I am sure that the people across the bay could hear the cheering. The girls and guys wore red and blue respectively and met at the gym for a fierce battle. I personally enjoyed the sideline dance party that we had going on for those of us who got out a bit early.

The final day of camp was beautiful with the sun shining and the wind blowing. We had our usual chicken barbeque and presentation outside on the lawn and all of the campers got to say goodbye to their counselors and friends. The campers were happy to see their parents, but sad to leave us. A great time was had by all involved and we can’t wait to see what the rest of the summer brings us!

Community Week

Camp is officially under way! The community week campers arrived two days ago from the surrounding towns here in Maine and camp is already in full swing. We had beautiful weather for the first day of camp. It might have been the best since I’ve been here and that is quite a few years. The sun was out and the wind was strong for the sailors and windsurfers, after the waterfront safety talk and swim test of course. The breeze also helped keep it cool for those out on the field playing soccer and ultimate Frisbee.

The evening activity was counselor skits. Who doesn’t love watching people make complete fools of themselves on stage? I won’t say too much and ruin it for those of you coming later this summer, but I will say we had a little something up there for everyone and a whole lot of laughs for the whole group. We had a couple of campers rating each skit on a scale of 1-10 and when it was all over I asked them which skit won. The answer: Too many 10s to decide.

Tonight’s activity is lip sync night! It is also Disney themed. The cabins eagerly prepared their songs and got their costumes ready during the day. The song lineup included: Do you Want to Build a Snowman, Under the Sea, I’ll make a man out of you and some other Disney classics.

The winning songs both came from Tangled. Little John won with an excellent recreation of “I’ve Got a Dream” and on the girl’s side, Isle au Haut put a new spin on “I See the Light.” Everyone did an amazing job and some teams got really creative with it, including a sugar verses medicine battle for Mary Poppin’s “A Spoonful of Sugar” by Acadia.

Today is our first full day with regular activities. Everyone has been having a blast! We have been playing soccer, basketball, tennis, and ultimate Frisbee all morning and this afternoon we took out the sailboats in some pretty great wind. The skies are still a little cloudy but not enough to slow us down!
