July 9th

 

Yet another beautiful day here at Ak-O-Mak!  The sun was shining and the girls had a fantastic day!  The morning started out with an early bird of swimming, biking and running and then we had a delicious breakfast of egg mcmuffins.  After inspection everyone headed down for swim practice followed by a practice in our small boats.

That afternoon after rest hour Hogomak took over camp once again and the girls spent a few hours playing “Whistler”, where the houses were split into teams and had to follow the sounds of whistles from hidden counsellors to find them and collect a series of letters.  The houses then raced to unscramble the saying and then solve two riddles to regain their counsellors.  It was an awesome afternoon of swimming, running and paddling around camp and after the Golden Snitches succeeded everyone enjoyed open waterfront to cool off until dinner. 

We are excited to see what games the counsellors have planned for after dinner and are looking forward to another beautiful day tomorrow!

What a fantastic day spent in the sun!  After an early bird of paddling, swimming, running and mountain biking everyone headed into the main house for a breakfast of pancakes and fresh fruit. 

With our two week campers leaving this morning the campers remaining at camp said their goodbyes before everyone loaded the boats to paddle over to Ahmic Lake Lodge for the day.  Once we arrived the girls all had a swim practice and enjoyed using the water slides and trampolines at the lodge after swim practice finished.  Afterwards everyone ate lunch that the kitchen packed up for us and then enjoyed an afternoon eating ice cream and playing in the rapids.

Once back at camp we ate a delicious dinner before an evening of small boats practice for the regatta this Saturday and paddle boarding and gunnel bobbing.  It was a wonderful day in the sun and we are all hoping for some more beautiful weather this week!

It was an adventurous day here at Ak-O-Mak!  The day began with breakfast at 7:30am before loading the war canoes and pleasure canoes to head over to Chikopi for the Knoepfli race.  Once at Chikopi everyone did a few camp cheers before getting into the water for the one-mile swim race.  It was a great race and the girls all had an awesome swim and walked back to Chikopi just before the rain began.  We then ate lunch and had awards before a rainy paddle back home to camp.  Even the paddle was fun with the girls all singing some of their favourite pop songs while heading home.

 

Once back at camp everyone enjoyed rest hour and then we all headed up to the main house to watch the movie Bedtime Stories and warm up by the fire out of the rain.  After dinner everyone got dressed up in their craziest outfits and headed up to the main house for a dance party.  We all sang and danced our hearts out and had a fantastic time!  It was a bit of a different day here at camp but still tons of fun!   Everyone is looking forward to the sun coming out tomorrow for a day at Ahmic Lake Lodge.

Most of the girls woke up nice and early this morning to load the bus and head on our way to Niagara.  Once in Niagara a group of us headed down to the Maid of the Mist to take the boat trip under the falls.  Meanwhile everyone else spent time looking at the falls and grabbing some chocolate from the Hershey store.  After spending a while in Niagara we all loaded back on to the bus to head to everyone’s favourite destination … the Vaughn Mills mall!   The girls then had a fantastic afternoon shopping with all of their cabinmates.  After a dinner at the mall and armed with all of our purchases we loaded the bus one last time to head back to camp.  While on the bus the girls all had a great time, sharing everything they bought and had a mini fashion show from their seats.  It was a very long but fun day for us and we are all going to sleep well tonight!

Meanwhile, back at camp the girls who did not go to Niagara enjoyed a nice quiet day with a small camp group.   They all got to sleep in and then choose their own classes of badminton, volleyball and paddle boarding in the morning.  Then after lunch the girls paddled over to Ahmic Lake Lodge for ice cream and a swim in the rapids.   After dinner everyone was excited to be reunited when the buses returned to camp, and after catching up we all headed down for bed!  Everyone is looking forward to an early bird full of swimming and running tomorrow morning!

"Oh Say Can You See!"

Happy 4th of July to all of our American friends!

It was a beautiful, sunny day here Ak-O-Mak and our American campers showed their "spirit" by donning their red-white and blue "swag".  Funky glasses, sparkling boas, and stars'n stripes spandex accessorized many a camp uniform at breakfast and dinner.

A variety of activities were enjoyed such as soccer, volleyball and zumba and Molly's class in "Competitive Croquet" was a definite crowd pleaser!

In the afternoon we had our entire fleet of racing canoes and kayaks on the water.  The girls are practising their skills and drills in preparation for the upcoming North Bay Regatta on July 11th, a short week away!  With two cabins of 10 & Unders, we have discovered some impressive new paddling talent!

A cook out on Sandy Beach rounded out the day where we enjoyed home made burgers, sausages, salads and veggies.  The kitchen baked a fantastic chocolate-brownie cake and Chef Samson decorated it with spangled stars and stripes!

Happy Independence Day, USA!!

Everyone was excited this morning to hear the bell ring for breakfast after they had a nice sleep in to prepare for the 10km run against the boys.  Chikopi arrived just after breakfast and after some stretching the race began!  Our girls ran there fastest while trying to beat the boys!  It was a perfect day for a run and everyone did a fantastic job and tried their best. 

After the race, the waterfront opened up and everyone enjoyed cooling off in the water and had a great time jumping off the tower.  We then had awards and lunch with Chikopi before they paddled back home. 

This afternoon we took our camp and cabin photos quickly before an afternoon of war canoeing, paddling in the small boats, sea kayaking and paddle boarding.  After dinner the campers got a choice between archery, tennis and small boats.  It was an awesome but tiring day here at camp and everyone is sure to sleep well tonight!

Happy Canada Day everyone!  We had such an awesome time today celebrating!  The morning began with a normal early bird of small boats, swimming and running.  After breakfast the campers all had a chance to learn some new stretching techniques taught by Jocelyn. 

After stretching everyone got all decked out in their red and white, grabbed their flags and we headed to Magnetewan.  While in Magnetewan we walked in a parade through the town.  It was an awesome experience as all of the girls got to hold the flag from their country while we paraded and sang all of our favourite camp cheers.  Once the parade was over the girls did a flash mob with our camp dance and we ate lunch and got ice cream!  Finally, before heading back to camp four of our youngest campers represented Ak-O-Mak in the cardboard boat race and took second place!

Back at camp Jocelyn led a running clinic for the campers and then everyone had a quick swim practice before dinner.  After a delicious dinner of roast beef, salad and roasted veggies we are now waiting to begin our counsellor fashion show!

Yet another great day here at Ak-O-Mak!  Everyone woke up this morning ready for an early bird of swimming, running, biking and small boats!  It was great to see the waterfront full of all of our racing boats practicing for the two regattas we will be racing in this summer.  After early bird and breakfast everyone enjoyed classes of zumba, softball, swimming, small boats, volleyball, tennis and bootcamp!

 

After lunch and a shortened rest hour we war canoed and pleasure canoed across the lake to Ahmic Lake Lodge for an afternoon of ice cream and playing in the rapids!  It was a great way to spend the sunny day, followed by a campfire and cookout once we returned to camp.  While around the campfire we all sang our hearts out to all of our favourite Taylor Swift songs.  We are looking forward to seeing what fun things tomorrow will have in store for us because here at Ak-O-Mak … every day is a great day!
