Today was a busy day full of paddling to prepare for the Ottawa Regatta this weekend! For early bird we had some campers practicing their small boats, as well as mountain biking, swimming and running. After breakfast we had a visit from an Olympian Alex! He was in the 2012 London Olympics for open water swimming. He paddled with us a bit in the morning and then he coached swim practice. He taught everyone about drafting and gave us tips for open water swimming. It was great to have him here at camp to coach! After lunch we paddled over to Ahmic Lake Lodge for ice cream and some swimming in the rapids. We took war canoes as well as pleasure canoes over to practice. For evening activity we had the finals of our tennis tournament! It was a ton of fun to watch the different age groups compete to win. Everyone headed to bed afterwards, tired from a great day!
