As I sit along the shore of Lake Ossipee watching our Bards enjoying a game of Greasy Watermelon with the sun setting, I can’t believe we’ve been here for five weeks already! Our last two groups have set off on their excursions and by tomorrow evening the entire camp will be back in the dining hall. One BIG HAPPY FAMILY!
Bows and Archers pulled out early this morning and set out in different directions, set to meet up shortly for an evening activity. Bows headed to Whale’s Tale water park and had a beautiful, sunny day. They enjoyed waterslides and wave pools, a lazy river and more. With the chance of rain, we had to “THINK BLUE” and it worked! The weather held up and they spent the whole day splashing around before heading to their campground to set up camp and cook dinner!
Archers headed off to Monkey Trunks in Weirs Beach for a morning of high ropes courses and adventure. They headed out for a picnic lunch on Lake Winnipesaukee and went to Kellerhaus, an ice cream shop over 100 years old, for a cool treat. After ice cream they headed for bowling and arcade games at FUNSPOT before heading ot their campground to cook dinner before their evening activity. Both groups are meeting up for a drive-in movie tonight at one of the few New Hampshire Drive-In theaters. Minions or Inside Out… we’ll have to wait for them to come home to know what they’ve decided.
Our Quills continued their trip by heading to Hampton Beach a day of relaxation before mini-golfing and heading to Prescott Park for an outdoor showing of Peter Pan, The Musical. Yeomen went to Attitash Adventure and had the most incredible time. A pizza lunch was brought in before finishing up with their mountain coasters, water slides, zip lines and alpine slides. A dinner at Applebee’s before heading to an evening of mini-golf was a great way to end the day.
Camp is getting fuller every day with more groups returning home to The Realm. The lake was a buzz with boat rides, sailing, paddle boarding and canoe/kayak and the fields are filling up with soccer and softball. Open Tennis during third period and the woodshop and art shack are busy with Founder’s Day gifts being made. All in all, it was a busy and productive day in and out of camp. We can’t wait to see what tomorrow will bring.
Until tomorrow… Sweet Dreams from The Realm!
