Here at Ak-O-Mak, every day's a great day and today was no exception! After a sunny Early Bird of swimming and running campers went for breakfast and then inspection. Inspection is highly competitive and a rather important part of camp life here. Each morning Hayley our Program Director and Dianne or Catherine head down the cabin line to inspect each cabin, we check their trunks to make sure they're neat and there's no wet clothes in them, we check if their beds are made, and if they have all of the things with them for their morning classes. Points are awarded for cleanliness and extra creativity and then a prize is given at banquet to the cleanest cabin.
Following inspection campers had, swimming, self defence, archery, tennis, basketball, small boats (c4's, c2's, c1's, k1's), and triathlon transition practice. Here campers practiced some helpful skills that will come in handy at the upcoming Parry Sound Triathlon.
This afternoon we had a shortened Rest Hour and then paddled or swam across the lake to Ahmic Lake Lodge for some ice cream and playing in the rapids. This was the campers first paddling trip out of camp and they paddled hard and strong, perhaps because they knew ice cream was waiting for them. After our afternoon adventure we headed back to camp for dinner and Evening Activity.
We were visited again by spies, and this time campers had to make their way around the Main House balcony as quiet as possible whilst avoiding lasers.
Everyone is now in bed and probably humming the Mission Impossible theme song to themselves.
