‘He who climbs the ladder must begin at the bottom’.
We haven’t been climbing ladders today, but we have been making the most of an empty camp. With so many people out on trips, the younger boys had the place to themselves. What this meant in practice was that everyone who wanted to ride the zip-line could; all those who wanted to ski and tube did that too. There was no waiting in line for anything today.
Cabin 4 did head out on their canoe trip just after lunch, but they returned home by 4.00 as the wind got the better of them on the Sugar Camp Creek. There is a threat of a storm tonight, so they won’t be camping out either.
The older boys will be back on Wednesday after they have enjoyed Minneapolis, The Dells and whiter-water rafting respectfully. We are not a tripping camp as such, but we feel that going on a trip is a classic camp experience and should be enjoyed by all who come to CM. Canoeing and camping out is also another thing we encourage the boys to do, and it is the younger boys in particular who get to do this this week. In the second session we will offer up an optional canoe trip for all ages.
The weather continues to play tricks with us, but all is well on this last day of June, so safely rest.
