Happy 4th of July! The weather was perfect today for a busy day at Camp Ak-O-Mak. We started our day with earlybird and the girls had the choice between swimming, running and paddling. We took a couple of war canoes out, and some girls practiced their steering and balance in regular canoes. After earlybird we had a hearty breakfast to prepare for morning classes. Some of the classes this morning included archery, zumba, volleyball, tennis, rugby and kayaking. A couple of the cabins also got to try out self defence with Rosie! After lunch the girls were pretty tired from a busy weekend and got to enjoy rest hour before jumping into afternoon activities. This afternoon we had team comp! Our counsellors planned a fun game that had all of the teams looking for some counsellors around camp with clues, and collecting items to create a fishing rod out of paddles. After team comp the girls got to cool off before dinner with open waterfront. Our evening activity for tonight was a choice between Sardines on the backfield and paddling. The girls who chose paddling took out a war canoe and practiced a bit on paddle boards as well. It was a busy but exciting day.
