Exciting Trips and Plunging Dips

Posted by on July 19, 2017

The Lower Summits headed out of camp after breakfast this morning to embark on their own exciting white water rafting trip. In their absence, our Timbers jumped at the opportunity to sit at the empty Summit tables during meals and assume the leadership position over camp (at least for the next couple of days!)

The rest of today seemed to “zip” by in a flash as several campers got the opportunity to brave our Aqua Zip Line down by the waterfront.  This challenge requires campers to hook into a belay system and then climb a tree.  After reaching the top and getting clipped onto the line, campers jump off the edge of the platform and zip across Peabody Pond before splash landing into the water.  Their squeals of delight are infectious!

Our Fiber Arts program is gearing up for their annual trip to visit a nearby Alpaca Farm where they will see first-hand where the fibers they have been using to create art come from.  During this visit, they will witness wool being sheered, get to know the animals a little bit better, and deepen their understanding of the materials used in Fiber Arts.

This afternoon, our 13U boys baseball inter-camp vs. wigwam took place.   It was a heated game and Micah came back from behind in the final inning to win the game with a 10-9 victory.  GO MICAH!

Tomorrow morning, our Critters, Prowlers, and Timbers will embark on their own day trips to local attractions. As our Summits return from their overnight adventures tomorrow night, we look forward to all being back at camp together.

Goodnight Bridgton and Sebago!
