Week 2, Days 2 & 3 - Sun, Swim and Shoot

Sorry for missing yesterday's post - technology problems!

Days 2 & 3, we had sun!!  so it was a hike to the lake,....

And everyone IN!
New Game: How many children can you hang on one fireman in the lake?

Back to camp for breakmaking,... cooking it over the fire, filling it with hot dogs and eating it, of course.

Who knew how much fun nine kids could have with a hammock?!...

Chill out time in the afternoon we spent building up fires, and roasting marshmallows or making popcorn.

Highlight of the afternoon was definitely a toss up between bow & arrow making and superb raft building and record breaking distance paddling trips on said rafts.

learning how to use the bow & arrow was one thing, then it was just practice, practice, practice.

and more practice.

with frequent play breaks.

Thanks to all our campers and instructors for another fantastic week of outdoor activity and learning! One more week to go.
Now, all that's left is to clean up - thanks to the parents for their patience with all the wet and dirty gear coming home - we have a pile of 'leftover' things that stayed at camp when your kids came home. Let me know if you're missing anything.

Warmest regards,
rachael, Herman and the ASA crew
