Monday at Rockbrook brought great excitement as our July campers tried out their first set of activities. Each girl is currently enrolled in four activities of her choice. The activities range from crafty to dramatic to adventurous-something for every camper! Despite the afternoon rain shower, activities went on as scheduled and lots of fun was had.
In addition to our delicious meals in the dining hall, our camp baker Allison had warm chocolate chip muffins ready this morning and cookies and milk for us tonight at Evening Program. These always set a great mood at camp! Just wait; you’ll be hearing about the muffins at camp.
During first and second free swim campers had their first opportunity to try out the new slide at the lake. Official names have been flying in, and we will reveal the new name later this summer. The comments upon exiting the slide ranged from silly to exhilarating to slippery to just plain fun. And they keep going over and over again. You’ll have to ask how many times your daugher was able to go down while here.
Tomorrow will be a day of rafting for our Middlers and Seniors over at the Nantahala River. Half the girls went over to our outpost this evening for a camp-out and will get on the river bright and early in the morning. The rest of the rafters scheduled for tomorrow will leave after breakfast for a day trip. They will get on the river just after lunch. It will be an adventurous ride with all of our experienced guides leading the group down the river.
This is big, big fun.
