Our first regular session, “A”, started this morning. We had 22 kids stay over from our 2nd Father Son camp, and they spent yesterday afternoon at the Waters of Minocqua waterpark. Everyone had an absolute blast and all the kids adapted quite quickly to life at camp without dad. We ended our Father Son camp with a great awards breakfast yesterday, with speeches from Zach Mandel, Kip Heekin, and Michael Hillsman, all of whom reminded us once again why we love camp so much.
Kids who stayed over, and those who arrived at camp by car, were put into activity groups today by age and they did activities such as tennis, Sports & Games, and basketball. They completed their swim tests this afternoon and the buses arrived right on time at 3:00. All the kids on the bus finished their swim tests and met their koogee mates, and then we had a meeting at 4:30 to introduce the staff and go over a few rules. After the meeting, kids played games like sprout ball before spaghetti dinner. Tonight after dinner will be a game of all camp Capture the Flag.
We love greeting old friends who we haven’t seen in a year, but A session is also full of lots of new faces as well. There is so much energy and enthusiasm, it’s contagious! We know it’s going to be a great session!
