Today started out with a twist! This morning instead of putting on their caps and goggles for swim practice, the girls pulled on their camper uniforms and put on their best smiles for camp pictures. Afterwards the girls headed out to rugby, paddle board yoga, self defence, diving, syncro, and more. During rest hour the girls who are leaving us tomorrow packed their bags. Since it was a beautiful day out on the lake, all the girls dove in to to swim our annual Monster Rock mile swim. We had some of the fastest times ever for the swim! After all the campers came in they hopped in canoes to paddle for the counsellors. We wrapped up the afternoon with some open waterfront before heading up to the mainhouse for a yummy dinner of curry and the girls favourite dessert... smores! We wrapped up the team with another softball tryout and a fun team comp game. It was then time for bed after a busy day!

Camp Ak-O-Mak was full of visitors today! After early bird and breakfast, paddlers from the North Bay Canoe Club joined us for a fun-filled morning. We did some paddling in small boats and war canoe, as well as volleyball, lacrosse and swimming. Everyone had a great time getting out in boats with some new paddlers and we learned a lot. In the afternoon Chikopi came over for the colour run! It was a 5km run where coloured powder was thrown on you as you ran. Everyone came out looking very colourful and we had a dance party at the end. We all jumped into the water to clean off before dinner. After dinner we had the soccer game against the boys! The girls played very well but unfortunately the boys beat us after a close game of 3-2. It was a lot of fun and we are very proud of our soccer team for all of their hard work.

What a successful day in Barrie! We had a 5:15 am wake up call to get on the road and drive to Barrie from the hotel for the triathlon. We arrived and got set up in transition area to prepare for the races. The day started off with the youngest campers and went through all the age groups till it ended with the duathlon. Everyone had a fantastic race and Ak-O-Mak placed in most of our age groups! After the triathlon we had lunch and awards. We loaded back onto the buses to head back to camp in time for open waterfront before dinner. We had camp fire and cookout tonight and everyone had a chance to share their stories from the triathlon. Afterwards we had an early bedtime so everyone can rest up from the busy day.

Today was the Chikopi Tri! We had an early breakfast before piling into canoes and heading over to Chikopi. It consisted of a swim, run and paddle. The rain held off for the triathlon and all of the 13 and overs had a great time. It was very windy for the 12 and under age group so they did a duathlon instead, consisting of the swim and run. It was a great morning and everyone did really well! We had lunch and awards at Chikopi and then we canoed back to Ak-O-Mak for rest hour. In the afternoon we had the camper-counsellor soccer game! All of the counsellors dressed up as campers and played against the soccer team and the counsellors won 1-0! Afterwards everyone had a chance to cool off in the lake before dinner. In the evening we packed up all the bikes for the Barrie tri, and had an early bed time to rest up.

Another great early bird today! The weather was beautiful and all the girls had the choice between swimming or running before breakfast. We had a shorter morning today because this afternoon we went to Ahmic Lake Lodge! For morning classes we had archery, tennis, softball, waterpolo and swimming. After an early lunch and short rest hour we all got into canoes to paddle across the lake to Ahmic Lake Lodge. We also had some bikers and a few swimmers. It was a gorgeous afternoon and everyone enjoyed their ice cream before spending the afternoon playing in the rapids and chatting with friends. We headed back to camp in time for dinner, and afterwards everyone got their bike organized for the Barrie Tri this weekend! For those not participating in the triathlon we had a yoga and stretching session to end off the night.

We have been very lucky with the weather lately, it was another beautiful day at Ak-O-Mak! The lake was very still for early bird this morning, and a lot of the girls got best times for swimming and running. For morning classes today we had softball, diving, water aerobics, biking, self defence and swimming. After lunch and rest hour Jocelyn led a running clinic to help the girls with their running form. It was very informative and helpful to learn new running techniques. After that everyone met for a team comp activity! We played Capture the Flag in the water so everyone could stay cool. It was a lot of fun and everyone enjoyed spending time in the water. They also had a chance for open waterfront before dinner. Some girls tried out the diving tower, paddle boards and even gunnel bobbing. After dinner the soccer team had a practice and the other girls had a choice between Barbarians and yoga. It was a great way to end off a fantastic day!

What a beautiful day at camp! The girls enjoyed a sleep in this morning before the 3 mile Ahmic Harbour swim with the boys. We had beautiful weather for the swim and the water is nice and warm. Once they got to Ahmic Harbour everyone paddled or walked back to camp. For lunch we had cookout with Chikopi and we presented awards from the swim. After lunch everyone headed to their cabins for a well-deserved rest hour after store. In the afternoon we had team comp and we played the list game. You only have a couple of seconds to look at a list of items that need to be collected and then you have to run around camp to find the items. It was a very warm day so for evening activity we had a choice period of paddling, diving and stroke correction. Everyone had a great day and we were all definitely ready for bed!

Today was a great day for early bird! The sun was shining as the girls headed out to swim, run or bike. After breakfast and inspection everyone headed to morning classes. We've started a new class of paddle board yoga and the girls are loving the new challenge. We also had classes of fencing, rugby, volleyball, archery, canoeing and swimming. Blair Saunders arrived just in time to teach us all about transitions for the upcoming Barrie triathlon! In the afternoon the girls rotated through classes of basketball, lacrosse, paddling and self defence. Tonight was camp fire and cookout! Everyone put on their comfiest clothes and headed to Sandy beach for dinner. We sang songs and our alumni gave an inspirational talk about how special camp is to them. Everyone headed to bed after a fantastic day to rest up for the Ahmic Harbour swim tomorrow.

It was a beautiful day on Ahmic Lake! We had a busy early bird this morning of swimming, running, mountain biking and road biking. After a delicious breakfast of french toast we had inspection. Everyone is all settled in now and enjoying all of the actives here at camp. For morning classes we had fencing, gymnastics, basketball, waterpolo, diving and of course swimming! In the afternoon a group of campers went on a bike ride to Magnetawan and back. Everyone at camp had a fun afternoon of sailing, softball and ultimate frisbee. We ended the afternoon with open waterfront to cool off. After dinner we had our second soccer try out. It looks like we'll have a great team this year to beat the boys! For those who aren't trying out there was a choice between paddling and Sardines, one of our backfield games. Everyone headed for bed after to rest up for early bird tomorrow!
