A Day Full of Acheivements
Well today was a great day here at Camp WeHaKee. The rain held off and we got a full day of activities in! Many girls conquered fears and reached new skill levels in various activities. Campers were eager to improve and did not give up easily what so ever. For starters, three girls hit the target numerous times today in archery, and the volleyball classes were able to bump the ball back and forth with out dropping it over 50 times! Needless to say we had many happy campers at lunch this afternoon.
After lunch activities were just as exciting if not more so. Girls were floating on their own (in a life jacket of course) in Hunter Lake for the very first time, and some even went to the pool during valley time (free time to socialize, play games, make friendship bracelets etc) to practice their swimming! I think these girls are going to go home brand new people with all the new skills they are learning here at WeHaKee. We even had one girl water ski using NO HANDS! It was amazing. She put the ski handle between her legs and just gave you this look that said “look at what I can do!” But I must not forget about pottery, today the girls used the wheel (some first timers) and made beautiful pots that can be taken home and kept for years. Also in horseback riding girls overcame fears and took control over some stubborn horses. I don’t know about you but I sometimes have trouble getting a horse to walk, but these girls overcame that today!
Overall, I think the most fun was spent on Camp’s “new” toy, the water mat. During Valley Time girls get the chance to swim in the lake and jump off our raft and play on our giant water mat. It was great to have a nice day today so that the girls got to go swim and try one more new thing at camp.
We ended our night with our cabins for Cabin Night. Girls were doing things such as tubing, tye dye, pool parties, pontoon rides, game night, and spa nights. Cabin nights definitely give the girls a chance to bond and create even better relationships here at camp.
It truly was a wonderful day, every girl will be going to bed with a smile on their face.
