Greetings to all of our camp families,
gorgeous week is in our rear view mirror, and what a week we had at camp! The
Chateau returned on Wednesday to a crowd of boys waiting to hear their stories.
The smiles on those young men’s faces is something that I cannot even begin to
describe. They safely returned to camp, full of pride that can only come from
an experience like the Canadian. Yet, Chateau was not the only cabin that
ventured out into the wilderness last week. Chalet returned from Isle Royale, F
and G returned from canoe trips, and H and Castle experienced the fantastic
views along the Superior Hiking Trail. Yesterday morning, Cabins A, B, C, and D
all headed out on their three day trips. We are very excited to see them
tomorrow afternoon to hear about their adventures.
past weekend, the boys of Red Arrow headed over to Camp Nicolet for our annual
War Canoe race. Our canoe, full of 10 senior campers, took on the girls of
Nicolet and narrowly came away with a victory. The staff also walked away
victorious in their race against the Nicolet staff. We had an absolutely wonderful
time at the event and we are very thankful to have such a strong relationship
with the girls over at Camp Nicolet.
second half of this week is packed full of action and a few new experiences for
the boys. Thursday evening the boys will experience the first ever Red vs Gray
Days (Color Wars) kickoff bonfire. The fire preludes two full days of
competition that will conclude with an all-camp relay that ends with two boys
on each team from the Chateau building a fire to burn a rope that is four feet
off the ground. The energy from capture the flag and red vs gray team events
has been building all summer and we cannot wait to see who comes out on top.
always, all parents, alumni and guests are invited to chapel on Sunday morning.
Chapel will begin at 11:30am and is immediately followed by a cookout, where
all are welcome to grab a bite to eat.
end of camp nears, please take a moment to ensure that you have sent us your
son’s travel plans for August 10th. If you have not already done so,
please do so ASAP by email Laura at Laura@redarrowcamp.com.
We will send out an email early next week with information about the Olympics,
Plays, Salad Bowl and closing ceremonies. Until then, we hope that everyone has
a wonderful week.
