We had a beautiful day here at Ak-O-Mak for our first full day of the session! Campers woke up with the bell for early bird and headed to their choice of swimming, running, or mountain biking. After breakfast and inspection each cabin was off for their morning classes consisting of a variety of swimming, small boats, tennis, soccer and volleyball. Everyone then head up to lunch in their camp whites for a buffet style meal with the choice of mac and cheese, lasagna and a green salad. After a rest hour out of the sun we headed back out for an introduction to war canoe and a kick off activity for Team Comp. This session’s theme was introduced as “Welcome to the Jungle” and the camp was divided into 4 teams to brainstorm and decide on a team name, skit, song and flag. After all the teams had presented we all headed to the lake for a quick dip to cool off before dinner. We enjoyed a camper favourite Sunday cookout with hamburgers and sausages with all the fixings, traditional potato salad as well as a fruit salad and cake for dessert. Fire Ban means no campfire but that doesn’t stop us Akomakers from singing all our favourite campfire songs by the lake. Everyone then headed off to bed to rest up for another sunny and activity packed day tomorrow!
