Good afternoon to all of our wonderful RAC families,
It is hard to believe that another week has passed at camp. Cabins A, B and E all ventured out on trips earlier this week and they all returned safely to camp yesterday afternoon. They faced off with Mother Nature on Monday evening, but everyone came back dry, smiling and full of fun stories to tell. Manor tried to depart on Tuesday for their 5-day Superior Hiking Trail trip, but due to washed out roads and flooding throughout the state, they returned to camp that afternoon and departed the next morning for an amended 4-day trip. They will return on Saturday. The cap the week off, Chalet and Chateau headed out on their trips to Isle Royale and Canada. We cannot wait to see them pull back down the driveway on Sunday (Chalet) and Wednesday (Chateau).
The boys are very excited about Songfest this evening. Our wonderful piano player, Dave Evans, returned from Scotland in the last couple of days so we are looking forward to singing the songs with a smooth melody, rather than pushing through the evening with our best version of a cappella. Tomorrow we will have our 5th Red vs Gray Capture the Flag completion. Currently the red team leads by 120 points so the gray team is definitely going to be fired up to capture the majority of the 300 points that will be up for grabs tomorrow evening.
Saturday we will be holding our annual Aquagatta competition. The boys will work their way through the morning scavenger hunt and compete in waterfront events all afternoon. The forecast is showing near 80-degree weather for the afternoon, so the event should be an absolute blast. On Monday, cabins F and G will head out on their 3-day canoe trips and H and Castle will make their way up to the Superior Hiking Trail for their 4-day hiking trips.
Lastly, a huge thank you to all of our families that visited this past weekend. It was wonderful seeing everyone. We hope you enjoyed the 2016 Counselor Stunt Night! For those of you who are planning on visiting this weekend, chapel will be held at 11:30am on Sunday and we will be, once again, having a BBQ afterwards so please come hungry!
As always, please let Laura or me know if there is anything we can do to help.
Take good care and happy camping,
Will and Laura
