Today we had Recreational Swim at the Slides pool first period. I went on slides #1 and 2, and i played with my brother. It was so much fun! Next we had Capture the Colour and the red team one for spirit, that activity was a lot of fun as well! Next we had Art Attack where we designed and formed objects using our bodies and clothes. We made a bow, a tree, and an image that tells a story. Then we had Slip n Slide soccer baseball, and finally we have Boggle at the Eagle rec hall. My favourite activity of the day was Free swim because we get to do whatever we want in the pool, and I got to see my brother.

Today we had Build It where we made things out of Lego and showcased them. It was a lot of fun showing everyone in our cabin all the cools things we made. Then we had Marble Run where we made structures that we drop a marble on. The marble follows the path that we create. It was very fun creating the structures. Then we made mini machines out of Kinex. That was really cool too! Finally we had Recreational Swim. It was so much fun splashing each other in the water!

Today I had Karate where I learned to kick and punch. It was so fun learning new techniques. Then I had Cooking where I made an ice cream sandwich and cookies. They were very tasty. Next I had Instructional Swim where I learned to do back crawl and some jumps. Then I had Visual Art where I made an elephant sculpture that I decorated with hearts and stars. Next I had Jr. Science where I made a kaleidoscope out of a toilet paper tube and stickers. Finally I had Swim again. My favourite part of the day was Swim because I got to go in the pool and it was very refreshing!

Today we had a mix of A&C and Science, so we were blowing up balloons with baking soda and vinegar, then we made lava lamps, and finally made homemade duck calls. It was so much fun, blowing up the balloons was the coolest! Next we had Recreational Swim, where we normally go to the slides pool. That pool is my favourite because there are 3 slides that i can choose from and go down super fast! After that we have the MyCamp Showcase, and this week our cabin is showcasing a board with a list of experiments and their results. So we went up to different counsellors and asked their opinion on 2 sunscreens, and also asked them to try coke and pepsi and see which one they like more or which was sweeter than the other. And finally we have Spirit Rally which we’re so excited for!

Today we we had Stable Management where we learned about horses and the different things we need to do in order to take care of horses. Then we went Riding where we trotted and cantered. Cantering is smoother than trotting. Then we ate lunch and drank lots of water. Next we had Recreational Swim. We love Recreational Swim because we can relax and talk about horses. After Swim we are going to Riding. It’s going to be so much fun! Finally we are going to have Arts & Crafts. We are very excited because we are doing something new. Our favourite thing to do in Arts & Crafts is make origami horses out of paper. The art specialists are super nice, and we can’t wait to see what they have planned for us today!

Today we had Baseball and I played second base. We lost the game, but it was still so much fun! Then we had Tennis. Tennis is my favourite sport because I love the game Jail Break. Then we had Instructional Swim. My swim instructor is Matthew. He is really nice and fun! I’m in level 6 and I think I’m going to pass by the end of the summer. Next we had Ball Hockey. It was really fun but I prefer Ice Hockey. My favourite thing about camp is the amount of friends I have made. I love my cabin and my counsellors. I’m going to miss all of the sports that we get to play. I’m for sure coming back next year. This has been the best summer ever!
