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!

Happy 4th of July! The weather was perfect today for a busy day at Camp Ak-O-Mak. We started our day with earlybird and the girls had the choice between swimming, running and paddling. We took a couple of war canoes out, and some girls practiced their steering and balance in regular canoes. After earlybird we had a hearty breakfast to prepare for morning classes. Some of the classes this morning included archery, zumba, volleyball, tennis, rugby and kayaking. A couple of the cabins also got to try out self defence with Rosie! After lunch the girls were pretty tired from a busy weekend and got to enjoy rest hour before jumping into afternoon activities. This afternoon we had team comp! Our counsellors planned a fun game that had all of the teams looking for some counsellors around camp with clues, and collecting items to create a fishing rod out of paddles. After team comp the girls got to cool off before dinner with open waterfront. Our evening activity for tonight was a choice between Sardines on the backfield and paddling. The girls who chose paddling took out a war canoe and practiced a bit on paddle boards as well. It was a busy but exciting day.

Today started very early for the girls headed to day 2 of the North Bay Triathlon, with a 5:00 wake up. They arrived in North Bay ready to compete and had a great time. They arrived back to camp in time for some diving and yoga before lunch. The girls who stayed at camp had a regular 7:00 wake up for earlybird, followed by breakfast and inspection. They headed off to morning classes of zumba, paddle-boarding, kayaking, basketball and rugby. After lunch everyone enjoyed rest hour before swim practice and dry land. Swimming was followed by paddling! The girls got to try out war canoe, as well as some of the smaller racing canoes and kayaks. In the evening we had our first cookout! Our chef made his famous burgers and a delicious cake decorated like the American flag. The girls got a chance to sing some camp songs and listen to cabin 1 speak about friendship. We also heard some stories from those who competed in the triathlons this weekend. Overall it was a great day!

We had another great day on Ahmic Lake! Our day started with earlybird, with the option of running, swimming or mountain biking. After breakfast the younger girls had a swim practice before some of them headed off to the North Bay Triathlon! The girls at the triathlon had a fantastic and successful day, and arrived back to camp at dinner time. The girls who stayed at camp for the day enjoyed morning classes of swimming, canoeing, diving, basketball, rugby and softball. After lunch we had our first paddling practice to start preparing for the upcoming regattas. After paddling, the girls had the option of synchro, ultimate frisbee or a bootcamp class. After a delicious dinner of homemade lasagna we had a camp wide game of Capture the Flag to end off the night. The girls were tuckered out after a busy day and definitely ready for bed!
