August 2nd 2017

We had a peaceful morning for earlybird, and campers had the choice between running, swimming, road and mountain biking. After working up an appetite we headed to the mainhouse for breakfast sandwiches and fruit. After inspection our morning classes began. We had transitions, badminton, pilates, soccer, volleyball and swimming. For lunch we had sandwiches and salad. After a well-deserved rest hour everyone started off their afternoon with a choice period. The choices were strength training, basketball, waterpolo, pickleball and kayak adventure. Luckily the rain held off and we had team comp for the rest of the afternoon! Today’s game was Just Dance! Each team created a dance and then performed it for evening activity. They were very entertaining and everyone had a wonderful time. After evening activity it was time to head back to the cabins to rest up for tomorrow.

The water was calm and the sun was shining for our 3 mile Ahmic Harbour swim today! The girls had a sleep in before a filling breakfast of pancakes and fruit before the swim. Everyone met down at the main dock for the start of the swim and had a warm-up. All of the swimmers did an amazing job and even some of our littlest campers from cabins 7 and 8 completed the swim! Once we arrived at Ahmic Harbour there was fruit, Gatorade and hot chocolate waiting for the campers to refuel before the run, walk or paddle back to camp. We arrived just in time for a delicious lunch of perogies and salad, and then had an extended rest hour before afternoon activities. This afternoon we had classes of sailing, bushwacking, diving, kickball, small boats, fencing and more! After dinner we had open waterfront to enjoy this beautiful weather and warm water. There was also the option of stroke correction and stretching. The girls practiced their skills on the paddleboards, small boats and even tried gunwale bobbing! It was a very busy and exciting day.

Another beautiful day at Ak-O-Mak! We started our day bright and early with swimming, running, mountain biking or road biking for earlybird. After enjoying French toast with fresh fruit for breakfast everyone headed down to their cabins to get their cabins clean for inspection. Our morning classes consisted of mountain biking, transitions, croquet, diving, Zumba, badminton and swimming. For lunch we had chili with cornbread muffins and then back to the cabins to rest up for the afternoon. This afternoon we played an awesome game for team comp. It was called Mario Canoes, and each team had to fit 3 or 4 people into a canoe and then race to Monster Rock and back with some obstacles and water balloons to throw at the other teams. It was a blast to watch and everyone had a great time! After team comp we had a choice period of fencing, kickball, small boats, volleyball and gymnastics. For evening activity we had a choice between yoga, stroke correction and speed ball in the backfield! Everyone headed to the cabins nice and early tonight to rest up for the Ahmic Harbour swim tomorrow!

Today was a very special day here at Camp Ak-O-Mak because we had our annual Olympic Day! Camp is divided into 6 different teams, and each team chooses which country they would like to represent. Then each camper chooses the sports that they are best at and they compete against the other teams. This morning was spent by the lake for all of our water sports. We started out with diving and a swim meet, and then moved on to war canoe, waterpolo, synchro, K1 and paddleboard races. After lunch and rest hour we met up at Easter Island Head Rock for our afternoon of land sports! We divided into teams for tennis, badminton, volleyball, soccer, softball, basketball, track and field, mountain biking and cross-country. It was an awesome day and there is a different sport for everyone to excel at. After a full day of Olympic games we headed to the campfire for Sunday night cookout! Everyone enjoyed their burgers, salad and chips before roasting some marshmallows and having cake for dessert! We read the results of Olympic Day at campfire and then sang some songs before heading back to the cabin for a well deserved early bedtime.

We had a longer inspection today to allow extra time to unpack and clean up and then everyone headed out for morning classes! This morning we had archery, volleyball, soccer, netball, tennis and more. The beautiful weather held up all day and everyone enjoyed the sunshine. After lunch we had candy store and rest hour, and then headed out for afternoon activities. We had swim practice this afternoon, and everyone had canoeing class as well to practice our paddling skills. Some other classes this afternoon included water polo, self-defense and Zumba. For dinner tonight we had delicious pork, cous cous, steamed broccoli and salad. After dinner we played some back field games for evening activity! We played Hucklebuckle and partner tag, and then everyone had a chance to jump in the lake before bed. Everyone headed for an early bedtime to rest up for our first earlybird tomorrow morning!

We had our first earlybird of the 3 week session this morning and everyone seemed to enjoy it! The girls chose between road biking, mountain biking, running or swimming. After earlybird everyone headed to breakfast nice and hungry and enjoyed bagels, scrambled eggs and fresh fruit. After inspection we all headed out for a full morning of classes! It was a windy day but very sunny so everyone enjoyed their classes of yoga, mountain biking, soccer, sailing and of course swimming, yay! For afternoon activities we started Team Comp! The theme for this session is video games, so Ak-O-Mak has been called to help rescue some counsellors that have been sucked into the gaming world! The campers have to complete various levels to help save the counsellors. Everyone got to work right away making a team name, flag and skit. After Team Comp there was a choice period of yoga, softball, ultimate Frisbee and soccer. To end off the afternoon we all had a chance to cool off in the lake during open waterfront. After a wonderful dinner of fish and chips we all went on to the backfield to play Capture the Flag! We divided the camps into 4 teams and everyone had a shot at stealing the other teams flags. It was a very busy but great day!

Today we welcomed all of the new campers to camp! After early bird and breakfast this morning our 7 weekers headed out for a fun morning of swimming, war canoe, tennis and Zumba. Our new campers began arriving around lunch time and our counsellors greeted them and brought them down to their cabins to settle in for the next 2 or 3 weeks. Once everyone arrived we went for a hike of the trails and then back to cabins to get ready for dinner. We had chicken, zucchini, roasted potatoes and salad for dinner tonight followed by vanilla cupcakes for dessert! After introduction of the staff team everyone headed down to their cabins to finish unpacking and get to know their cabin mates. We can’t wait to see what the next session brings!

Another amazing session of camp has come to an end! The past 4 weeks have flown by and we’re definitely looking forward to the next 3 weeks. We had an early breakfast this morning because the campers leaving by bus had an early departure at 8:30am. After breakfast we had inspection to get our cabins ready for new campers tomorrow and then headed down for swim practice! This was a unique swim practice, with some sprint races and relay races using the innertubes at the end. After swimming we played a game of Smugglers and Spies along the cabin line. To finish off a fun morning we had a water balloon fight in the backfield! For lunch we enjoyed yummy pizza and salad, and then we had a quick rest hour. For the afternoon we paddled, swam, ran or took the war canoe over to Ahmic Lake Lodge! We played on the water slide and water trampoline and enjoyed some ice cream in the sun. We got back to camp in time for dinner and then for the evening we had a movie night! We watched Moana and enjoyed some treats. As a fun twist the campers had a chance to stay in the mainhouse overnight if they wanted to! We can’t wait for tomorrow to meet all of the new campers.

1 more day of vacation… Sadly this is the 4 weekers last day of camp so we definitely made the most of it! We had a sleep in today due to the weather so the girls came to breakfast feeling very rested. After breakfast and inspection we had morning classes. Our morning classes consisted of pilates, boxing, self defense and rocktagon! Rocktagon is played in an empty cabin. All of the mattresses are lined on the floor and you put on a couple of lifejackets and wrestle. It is a lot of fun on a rainy day! After classes we had a filling lunch of perogies, chips and salad and then we had rest hour. For the afternoon everyone met back up at the mainhouse for team comp! The teams took turns playing Scuttlebugs and building a parachute that holds a tennis ball to fly off the second floor in the mainhouse. After activities everyone went back to their cabins to pack before dinner. Tonight was banquet, so we had a special dinner of mashed potatoes, stuffing, turkey, vegetables and gravy. After dinner we gave out all of the awards and watched the slide show! Then we headed down to the main dock to release our wish boats into the water. It was an amazing day to end off a wonderful session.
