The First Day

What a great first day and a half it has been! Campers arrived yesterday and it seems we have been busy non-stop! After some introductions and an amazing first meal, campers got to take a short tour of camp and learn all about the many different activities they will be doing this week. But the best part of the evening had to have been our Mr. and Mrs. Daggett competition. Campers got to dress up their counselors and help them have a talent. We saw everything from a dinosaur to juggling and everything in between! In the end Paul (Huron) and Lisa (Potatawomi) won our contest by guessing which animals their campers were, and what they had for dinner the night before, respectively.

Monday saw campers get their first taste of a full day of Camp Daggett activities. The morning saw younger campers on the waterfront, while older campers were on the land. Traveling with their brother or sister cabins campers got to experience many new things, as well as make lots of new friends. Campers also really enjoyed free land and free water, where they can choose any land and water area that they want to go to. But of course the highlight of the day was our all camp game of Capture the Flag. Much of the area around camp was used for a massive game, with the odds battling the evens. Even though the red team (evens) captured the first flag, the odd team came back to end the game on a tie. Campers were certainly tired and ready for bed, which was all the better since Tuesday is another exciting day at Camp Daggett.
