Greetings from Camp Ak-O-Mak
Shhhh!…Word has it that our beloved Ak-O-Mak continues to sleep under a heavy blanket of snow…
Herb Denny and Sandy Tod (of Sunfield Renovations) visited camp the last weekend in MARCH to check things out and visit friends, John and Jennifer, of Rocky Reef.
They reported that they were able to walk for MILES upon the thick, lake ice. The windswept face of Orange Rock was visible rising beyond the drifted snow as though stretching toward the sun. The brightness of the day belied the frigid temperatures and the "lakescape" was a frozen desert of white. The only sounds heard were the crunching of snow underfoot and the gusting wind whistling past their ears.
It is hard to imagine that this icey world, our very Early Bird route, will soon begin its perennial metamorphosis into the sunny, warm Ak-O-Mak that WE know so well! This deserted, frozen tableau will quickly come alive with sunshine, movement, colour and song!
So girls, please don't let the dreary days of April dampen your drive to get back to camp! It's time to SPRING into action! Don't risk spending a summer in the city as a "texting-couch-potato" when you could be beating the summer heat at "open waterfront" or roasting marshmallows at campfire!
Registration is a BREEZE! You'll find all of the forms "on line" on the Camp Ak-O-Mak website, including the packing list! If you have any questions just give Dianne Young a call in the camp office @ (416) 427-3171 and she'll help you out.
Stay tuned and we'll keep you posted with regular updates as we begin opening up Camp Ak-O-Mak in May. We can hardly wait to start pulling out the summer "toys" again….(along with a few NEW surprises!) and let you know the winner of the annual "First One in the Lake" contest over the May long weekend.
Think SUMMER. Think AK-O-MAK!
