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!
