Besides the hikes and archery, there was a couple of other games and activities to do - a water game that ended up with just plain bucket-dumping. But it was so pleasant for the girls to get wet and cooled off.
It really was a fun week up at camp. Suzanne was the camp nurse. The girls kept her busy from the crack of dawn until late at night. She hardly had a minute to herself. But it was fun to hang out at camp with her. And how often do friends get to share a bunk bed??
Melanie was off on her 4th year high adventure trip most of the week. When she got back, I told her I had missed her and asked her if she would go hike with me the next day early before flag and breakfast. I didn't think she would - she was exhausted! But she readily agreed. I got her up at 5:30, and she and I went hiking for an hour and caught up on all of her adventures and stories. She is always full of fun stories.I'm not sure what this pose was, but it was an interesting tree - worthy of an interesting pose.
There were a lot of other adult leaders I didn't know well before we went and I can say I enjoyed and appreciated each and every one of them. It's weird to move into a cabin with a bunch of people you hardly know and by the end of the week we were all best of friends. Overall, a great week.
