Today was a very active day for us!  We decided to take advantage of the gorgeous day and flat lake by doing the Monster Rock one-mile swim this morning.  After all of the campers had swam the campers got into canoes and paddled for the counsellors while they swam. 

We then had a delicious lunch of chicken sandwiches and salad before rest hour and candy store.  After rest hour everyone headed down to the bike shed for our annual mountain bike race led by our coach Blair!  Everyone enjoyed the afternoon riding the one-mile course at Ak-O-Mak on our new fun cross trail system.

After dinner all of the girls went down to the U-Haul to load their bikes for the Barrie triathlon before spending the rest of the night jumping off the tower and bathing in the lake.  We are all very excited to head to Barrie tomorrow for the Barrie triathlon!

This morning we awoke to great conditions for early bird, and many of the girls got best times both in the water and on the trails.  After a breakfast of crepes, fresh berries, and oatmeal everyone headed down to their cabins for inspection.  The girls then spent the rest of the morning swimming, playing tennis and water polo, doing some Zumba dancing, and practicing their transitions for the Barrie triathlon.

In the afternoon the girls all met at sandy beach for a beach adventure.  All of the cabins competed against each other in sand castle building, limbo, paddleboard races, and a few relay races in the water.  In the end it was cabin one that was victorious with cabin three not far behind.  It was an awesome afternoon in the sun!

We then had a delicious dinner of stir-fry, spring rolls, and salad.  After dinner the girls played a game of sardines and then scuttle-bugs before bed.  A group of campers also spent the evening at the biking time trial in Perry Sound.  We are all looking forward to the mountain bike race tomorrow that Blair is putting on for us!

Sadly today we said goodbye to our two week campers, but those here for our three week and seven week sessions still managed to have an awesome day.  After early bird and breakfast the remaining campers all piled into canoes to paddle over to Ahmic Lake Lodge for the day. 

Once at the lodge the campers enjoyed a fun swim practice and even got to use the lodge’s water trampoline and slide!  The girls also went on a short hike on the trails around the lodge before we ate the delicious wraps and cookies that the kitchen packed us.  After our lunch everyone got a chance to get some ice cream from the store before paddling back to camp.

Back at camp everyone enjoyed a rest hour.  After which a thunderstorm rolled in so each of the cabins created a skit that they presented after dinner.  All of the skits were quite hilarious and after they were presented we all had the privilege of learning some self-defense moves from Olympic wrestler Pete M.  What an awesome day here, we are all looking forward to tomorrow!

It was another gorgeous day for us here at camp and we took advantage of it this morning by spending time in the sun doing classes of swimming, kayaking, self-defense, lacrosse, bootcamp, and hiking. 

We then all had a delicious lunch of Caesar salad and homemade pizza and before going down to the cabins for rest hour.  After rest hour everyone gathered in their team competition teams for an afternoon of searching for clues and solving puzzles to reveal the next task for the team to complete.  The Peeps won today’s competition followed closely by Oompa-Loompa’s Candy Confectionary Agents.

After dinner all of the teams met up to practice the skits and cheers that they came up with this afternoon and then presented them to the rest of the camp.  It was a great end to a perfect day here at Ak-O-Mak!

It was a picture perfect day here at camp; the weather was gorgeous with nothing but blue skies and sun all day.  We started our day off with an early bird of running, swimming, mountain biking, and road biking.  Many girls pushed themselves to run or swim further than they had before and many others went best times.

After early bird and a delicious breakfast everyone cleaned their cabins before spending the morning in classes such as swimming, sailing, waterpolo, tennis, softball, and self defense. 

It was then time for lunch and after lunch everyone had a short rest hour.  After rest hour we all met down by the canoe docks for an afternoon paddle to Ahmic Lake Lodge to get some ice cream and swim in the rapids.  It was an awesome afternoon in the sun. 

Once we got back to camp everyone put on comfy clothes and headed down to the fire pit for a cookout dinner of hamburgers, hotdogs, salad, and brownies for dessert.  The girls then enjoyed roasting marshmallows and singing some of our favourite camp songs by the fireside.

It was an early morning for us here at camp with a 6am breakfast before loading the buses to head to Barrie for the Kempenfest 2km open water swim.  Thankfully most of the girls used the two-hour bus ride to catch up on any missed sleep.

Once we arrived in Barrie all of the swimmers grabbed their caps and timing chips and headed to the water for the swim while those of us not swimming went to cheer our team on.  It was a great race for everyone who competed and Ak-O-Mak had a great showing with over 70 campers and staff completing the swim!

After the swimmers were all in and the awards ceremony wrapped up the girls headed off with their counsellors to grab some lunch and walk around the festival.  Once everyone had their fill of ice cream and Tim Hortons we all loaded the buses to head back to camp for dinner.

 

We had a delicious dinner of mashed potatoes, vegetables, meatloaf, and fresh rolls.  After dinner everyone went down to the waterfront to gunnel bob on the canoes, paddle around in kayaks, and jump off the tower.  Then it was off to bed for everyone after a very tiring but fun day!

It was a perfect, sunny day for the Ahmic Harbour swim today!  After an early lunch all of the swimmers headed down to the main dock for some stretches and a few cheers before the race.  All of the swimmers then jumped in, lined up and they were off!  It was a great race with all of our swimmers doing an amazing job!

After every swimmer got to Ahmic Harbour and warmed up with some hot chocolate both camps either paddled or ran back to Ak-O-Mak for awards and dinner.  Once everyone was full each of the soccer teams and their cheering sections headed out to the field for the game.  It was a very intense game, with both teams fighting hard for the win, but in the end Ak-O-Mak was victorious!  When we won the girl’s cheers could be heard from across the lake!  What an exciting night to be an Ak-O-Makker! 

After soccer it was off to bed for everyone because we have an early morning tomorrow as we head to Barrie for the Kempenfest 2km swim race.
