We woke up to a beautiful morning here on Ahmic Lake. Everyone had an awesome early bird swimming, running or paddling. We then all headed up to breakfast after early bird for a normal fun filled morning of classes since we got our bikes and bags packed for the triathlon last night after dinner. The girls enjoyed morning classes of softball, volleyball, kayaking, zumba, yoga and swimming.
After lunch we all loaded the buses and were off on our way to Barrie. Once we arrived in Barrie our first stop was the race kit pick up for the triathlon. Over sixty of us Ak-O-Makers are competing in tomorrow morning! Once all of our race bibs and timing chips were picked up we headed to one of our favourite restaurants, The Market. The all you can eat restaurant was perfect for a large group of athletes and everyone had an awesome time. Once everyone was full we all headed to our hotel rooms, where the girls had some time to relax, swim and even take a hot shower if they wanted to before heading to bed to get a good sleep before our race tomorrow!
It was an early morning for all us with wake up calls at 5:30 so that we could have breakfast and leave the hotel in time to set up our transition spots before the race at 8:30. All the girls swam, biked and ran their hearts out and represented Ak-O-Mak very well. After each age group finished more and more campers lined the path to cheer for every participant. The girls all had outstanding races and had a great time racing. By the end we had the best cheer team in Barrie! Before heading back we all walked to Tim Hortons and Dairy Queen for a quick treat. It was a quiet bus ride home as everyone slept and rested after our tiring day. A cookout dinner awaited us and we enjoyed our last campfire of the seven-week session by singing some of our favorite songs. The girls are now tucked up in their beds and sleeping to get ready for one of the most anticipated events at camp … TREASURE HUNT!
