Today was a busy day for everyone as we all headed off camp for an afternoon of ice cream, swimming in the rapids, and looking at the animals at Ahmic Lake Lodge. The girls paddled in canoes, biked or war canoed over to the lodge and back.
After a yummy dinner of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and salad everyone headed down to the canoe docks for a canoeing time trial. Cabin by cabin the girls lined up by the 100-meter buoy and then solo paddled the canoe as fast as they could past the diving tower. It was an awesome evening of paddling and cheering. We are all looking forward to seeing what tomorrow will bring.
We awoke this morning to rain, but here at Ak-O-Mak we are TOUGH ENOUGH and the girls all challenged themselves swimming, running, biking, and paddling for early bird. After warming up with a breakfast of blueberry pancakes, hot chocolate, sausages, and oatmeal everyone headed down to inspection. After inspection the girls went down to the waterfront for some dryland and swim practice. Once practice was over everyone put on cozy PJ’s and brought their blankets and pillows up to the mainhouse to warm up by the fire and watch Disney’s Frozen together before lunch.
The rain subsided for a bit this afternoon and we took the opportunity to play softball and tennis, go for a trail run, and even got out paddling in some of our small boats.
Tonight the girls are looking forward to dinner and a counsellor fashion show after dinner since the rain has begun once again. We are hoping for some sun tomorrow!
