Yesterday was a busy day at Niagara Falls for most of our campers. After visiting the Falls and going on the Hornblower we drove to Vaughn Mills for some shopping. We headed back to camp just in time for a dip in the lake before bed. Today started out a bit cloudy but turned out to be beautiful. We had an early bird of running and swimming before breakfast. Instead of morning classes we switched it up and did paddling and swim practice. After lunch and rest hour our team comp leaders had planned a great afternoon for us. It was a sports tournament of soccer, basketball and kickball and everyone had a ton of fun! After a delicious dinner of chicken, potatoes and caeser salad we had a choice for evening activity. The campers chose between sailing, yoga and mountain biking. Everyone headed to bed after that to rest up for tomorrow!

It was an early start for the group of campers heading to North Bay for paddling. They had breakfast at 6:30 before heading off, and they spent the day training with the North Bay paddlers as well as taking some soccer breaks. They had a fantastic day and everyone learned a lot. They arrived back at camp just in time for dinner. The group of campers that stayed at camp enjoyed an early bird of running and swimming before breakfast. Afterwards they had a longer inspection so the 2 weekers had some time to pack before their departure tomorrow. We had morning classes of swimming, rugby, paddle boarding and a competitive game of soccer between cabins 3 and 4. In the afternoon after rest hour everyone participated in a camp wide obstacle course! It was a ton of fun to climb under benches, hula hoop, somersault and much more! It was a very warm day so the campers had a chance to jump in the lake before a relaxing yoga class. We opened up the waterfront for the campers before dinner to cool off. It was an eventful day for everyone, and this evening we gave the campers a chance to pack and bond with their campers on some of their last nights. Tomorrow a large group heads out to Niagara Falls for the day!

It was a busy day at camp! The day started off with early bird, and the girls had the options of running, swimming and biking. After breakfast and inspection the girls got ready for morning classes. This morning we had two longer periods of swimming, dryland and paddling! We worked on war canoe as well as small boats to prepare for the regattas. The boats are looking great this year and everyone is improving quickly. After lunch everyone headed down to their cabins for a much needed rest hour before an exciting afternoon! The campers going to the North Bay Regatta had paddling practice, and there was a choice period of diving, synchro, volleyball and rugby for the other campers. Followed by our best run THE COLOUR RUN, great fun!!! After such a busy day everyone was ready for an early bed time and some cabin bonding.

Today we took a break from early bird and had a sleep in until 7:45 before the 10km run with Chikopi. After breakfast everyone got ready to run. The weather was beautiful and everyone had a fantastic run. Afterwards the runners headed down to enjoy open waterfront and get a chance to jump in and cool off. Before lunch we presented awards. After Chikopi left the girls headed down to their cabins for a well deserved rest hour. In the afternoon we had swim practice and stretching to help with sore muscles from the run. After that we had a  choice period of tennis, softball, diving, kayaking and paddle boarding. This evening was campfire and cookout, and the girls enjoyed burgers and cake before roasting marshmallows. Cabin 1 shared inspiring stories about overcoming obstacles before we got together to sing some camp songs. Everyone was ready for bed after a tiring but exciting day!

The girls enjoyed an earlybird of biking and running this morning, before the weather decided not to cooperate. It was mostly rainy all day but that gave everyone time to rest for the 10km run tomorrow! After breakfast and inspection, the girls had a choice between swim practice and dryland. After that everyone headed up to the mainhouse to watch the Kona Ironman documentary! It's a camp favourite and always makes everyone feel inspired. After lunch and rest hour everyone headed back up to the mainhouse to avoid the rain and have a fun team comp activity! When the campers got there Ak-O-Mak's Got Talent was all set up! Everyone had a chance to show off their talents in the form of song, dance, comedy or oddball. It was hilarious at times and so great to learn about everyones hidden talents. For evening activity we continued watching the Ironman movie that we couldn't finish in the morning. After that everyone headed to bed to get some rest for tomorrow!

Today was a great day at Ak-O-Mak! There was a bit of a drizzle during earlybird but that didn’t slow the swimmers or runners down. Many girls are getting best times for running and swimming and trying new running trails to challenge themselves. After breakfast and inspection we started morning classes. A few of the classes the girls had were tennis, biking, softball, lacrosse, boot camp, ultimate Frisbee and swimming! After rest hour we jumped into afternoon activity. The girls had two choice periods that consisted of sailing, paddling, soccer and volleyball, tennis and kayak adventure. After choice periods were finished we opened up the waterfront so everyone could cool off and have some fun in the water. Part of the group headed to Parry Sound for the bike time trials. After dinner, evening activity was Smugglers and Spies! That’s a game played on the backfield, and the camp is divided into 2 teams. One team has to hide buttons on themselves and sneak them over to the other team. It was a fun night!

Everyone was up bright and early today for a beautiful earlybird. The weather was perfect as the girls swam, ran and biked before breakfast. Our chef made delicious crepes for breakfast with fresh berries to prepare everyone for a busy morning. The girls enjoyed morning classes of softball, canoeing, yoga, sailing, archery and of course swimming! We had a quick rest hour before everyone headed off to Ahmic Lake Lodge for the afternoon! We paddled over in pleasure canoes and war canoes. It was a bit windy but still a lot of fun. Once we got to Ahmic Lake Lodge the girls lined up for ice cream and went down to the rapids to swim. It was a wonderful afternoon, and we headed back to camp in time for dinner. After dinner we had open waterfront for the evening. The girls had a chance to swim, jump off the diving tower, play on the paddle boats and gunnel bob. It was a fantastic day!
