Oh, We’re Halfway There
We finished up a busy week last week with Eco Challenge, a camp-wide event that was two days back-to-back this year where four teams (Water, Earth, Air, and Fire) compete in series of challenges. Some of the events included quidditch and basketball competitions, cone ball, frisbee baseball, tug of war, a banner/song/cheer competition, and the exciting Apache Relay. Though Air team captains Aisling and Frankie took home first place with their fire-building skills in the Apache Relay and Earth team won the banner competition with their awesome Garden of Eden-themed banner, Water team took home first place for the whole weekend! Congrats, Water!
After a tiring Friday and Saturday, campers were treated to some off-camp trips to relax and rejuvenate for their week ahead. Village campers (Monte Carlo, Las Vegas, London, Tijuana, and Rio cabins) went on a camping trip, attended a lumberjack show (flannel required), and woke up early to see the sunrise from Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park (the highest point on the East Coast!).
Middie and senior campers spent a day at Gooch’s Beach in Kennebunkport and got the chance to soak up some sun and cool off in the ocean before a busy week ahead!
After a relaxing weekend away, campers returned to camp and got back into a regular schedule. For most campers, it’s their last week at camp, as session 2 comes to a close this weekend. Tonight, we are headed to Poland High School to watch the musical the campers from our overnight summer camp have been working so hard on, as well as hear the Camp North Star-themed songs cabins have been writing for Sing Out. Tomorrow night, we’ll wrap up our week with Carnival Day and closing campfire, and we’ll sadly be saying goodbye to many campers the next day.
Time has flown by — we have passed the halfway point and have only a little more than three weeks left! We hope everyone has been having an awesome summer so far — let’s make these last three weeks the best yet!
