Flashback Friday!

Today we had our 4th theme day Friday and it was a blast! Our theme day was all about the 60’s, 70’s, 80′, 90’s and any other decade. The campers were decked out from head to toe in some fantastic costumes from home and the buses had their annual Friday bus competition where head staff decided which bus had the best CHEER and DECORATIONS, ultimately the Leopard bus won but the Raptor bus deserves an honourable mention!

Check out some of the costumes:

Skatepark Fun

Today’s blog is all about our skateboarding optional! All the campers in this program brought their boards and scooters to a local skatepark to practice and show off their skills. After campers had put on their helmets, knee, and elbow pads we went into the park. There were so many obstacles to try and each camper did an excellent job on them! One of these campers could be the next Tony Hawk.

Check out our photo gallery for some more highlights!

Sailing Adventures

What a great day to go sailing! The sun was out, the water was shining, and we had a great time out on the water.

Today at sailing campers helped put up the sails on the boats, get the boats into the water and sail with them. It just goes to show that a little bit of hard work equals a lot of fun! By the motorboat campers got to go swimming in the lake. We then finished off our morning by getting the boats back to shore and jumping into the lake from the dock. We can’t wait to go back tomorrow 🙂

The interaction between our campers and the horses at the stables is so beautiful to see! They are all so caring, gentle, and eager to ride them. Today campers had the chance to trot, circle their horses, and complete an obstacle course on their horse among other activities. It was so much fun the campers definitely didn’t want to leave the horses but luckily we had some amazing things to do back at camp 🙂 Make sure you all dress up for our theme day tomorrow: CARTOONS/COMICS!
