Mon July 9th:

 

Another fantastic day here at camp! We had an early breakfast this morning at 7:45 am so that we could get a head start on the day. After breakfast and inspection we loaded the buses and headed off to Buckwallow Cycling Centre! Buckwallow has tons of mountain biking trails for all ages and difficulties, from beginner to advanced. During the morning we had most of the campers and counsellors out trying their mountain biking skills on the trails, but we also had a few small groups that had the opportunity to hike and run through the trails. We stopped for a quick lunch break of turkey and pastrami sandwiches with chocolate chip cookies before heading back out onto the trails for the afternoon. Everyone had an amazing time biking and running, and all of the practice definitely helped to improve the campers confidence with mountain biking. Once we got back from the trails for the afternoon we bussed back to camp and had time for a little rest and open waterfront to cool off before dinner. We enjoyed a delicious dinner of pasta with sausages and vegetables, along with salad and broccoli and sugar cookies for dessert. To finish off the day we met at Easter Island Head Rock to hand out awards for the Around the Island swim. After such a busy day we all headed off to our cabins for a well-deserved early bed time!
