It was an early morning for us here at camp with a 6am breakfast before loading the buses to head to Barrie for the Kempenfest 2km open water swim. Thankfully most of the girls used the two-hour bus ride to catch up on any missed sleep.
Once we arrived in Barrie all of the swimmers grabbed their caps and timing chips and headed to the water for the swim while those of us not swimming went to cheer our team on. It was a great race for everyone who competed and Ak-O-Mak had a great showing with over 70 campers and staff completing the swim!
After the swimmers were all in and the awards ceremony wrapped up the girls headed off with their counsellors to grab some lunch and walk around the festival. Once everyone had their fill of ice cream and Tim Hortons we all loaded the buses to head back to camp for dinner.
We had a delicious dinner of mashed potatoes, vegetables, meatloaf, and fresh rolls. After dinner everyone went down to the waterfront to gunnel bob on the canoes, paddle around in kayaks, and jump off the tower. Then it was off to bed for everyone after a very tiring but fun day!
