The Campers are finally here! After 10 months of waiting and 2 weeks of staff training, the 2014 summer camp season has started off with a bang (and silly costumes.)
Campers arrived safely on Sunday and were introduced to their fellow campmates and counselors. That evening we had our opening campfire with traditional camp songs, and performances by our talented staff members featuring advice and guidelines for the week. They learned about staying together as a group, ensuring they drink enough water and respecting each other and the environment. On Monday morning, we jumped right into regular activities with campers learning about plants and wild edibles, orienteering, wetlands and the history of the Ojibwe.
With today’s weather being 75 and sunny, all of the groups are outdoors exploring this afternoon. The Voyageurs are challenging themselves on the ropes course and the rock wall. Discoverers are taking full advantage of this warm sunny day canoeing and swimming on Wolf Lake.
The rest of the week will be filled with learning about the raptors, visiting the Wolf Ridge Organic Farm, trying a bit of fishing, block printing and much more. We can tell by all the smiles around camp that this summer is starting off just right!
