August 1st

It was an early morning for us here at Ak-O-Mak, with a 6:15am breakfast before we loaded the buses and were on the road to Barrie for the Kempenfest swim by 7am.  Once we got to Barrie all of our swimmers got ready for the race.  We had an impressive group of 82 swimmers and everyone had a fantastic race!  The water was a little colder than usual but the girls all handled it well and swam fast to beat the cold!  It was a fast race and all of our swimmers finished it with a smile on their face. 

After the race and awards everyone got money for lunch and headed out with their counsellors to explore Kempenfest.  Once everyone had finished exploring we loaded the buses and headed back to camp.  On our way back we made a quick stop at Dairy Queen to end off our day with some ice cream. 

Once we got back to camp we ate dinner and then headed down to the waterfront to bathe before an early bed.  Meanwhile, some of the campers staying at camp for longer sessions went into Magnetewan for some square dancing before bed.  It was an exciting day for everyone and the girls are all nice and tired, ready for a good sleep before a normal camp day tomorrow!
