Wednesday morning started of with a wonderful lake swim, where “electric blue” swimmers were boated from camp across the lake so that they could swim back to camp. Swimmers were treated to a gorgeous sunrise as they swam with fellow campers as well as lifeguards. The group was also accompanied by power boats and kayaks to ensure the safety of all. That was only the beginning of a great day at Camp Daggett, as the morning was full of new adventures for both young and old. Canoers got a chance to learn how to flip (and right) their canoes during “Wobbly Wednesday.” Luckily, this skill wasn’t needed by the Gogebic and Huron cabins as they canoed home from their campout to the Maus’.
Our night activity on Wednesday was a bit of a surprise to campers as we put on a Mock Wedding. The event was a complete deal, with everything from garbage bag tuxedo making and dance lessons, to vow writing and china designing. Of course, there had to be a ceremony so that our two staff members, Nicola and Corbin, could have a chance to exchange those vows. In the end, everyone had a blast at our dance party reception- complete with cake!
Thursday, although rainy, was still a great day at camp. Campers had a blast when they got to wear their sweatshirts while sailing in an amazing wind. In our nature area, campers not only played some new games but also visited our famous frog pond! Thursday night also saw the introduction of a brand new night activity- Kung Fu Panda Night! To become master dragon warriors, campers were tested mentally as well as physically. The “trainees” designed their own headbands, practice their shop stick accuracy, balance on a rope, and much more.
We are looking forward to another wonderful day at Camp Daggett tomorrow! The weather forecast looks perfect for Beach Party Friday in swimming and Tennis Ball Frenzy in canoeing, ending with cook out and initiation tomorrow night.
