Summer Camp Report – Day Six in the Realm

Our 15 & Under Boys Basketball Team was at the court this morning at 7:30am preparing for our big rival game tomorrow night against West End. The first of two games this summer will be played in “The House,” which is what West End is referred to. All of senior camp will be there cheering on our boys!

After breakfast, three camps came into Robin Hood for a Girls 15 & Under Basketball Tournament. All the courts were in play all day, and three Robin Hood teams were represented in the tournament. Our Saxons and Scribes greeted the guest players, and helped with scoring and refereeing the games. It was a seamless tournament and all the girls played with terrific heart and soul.

The Archers left mid-morning for a climb up Chocorua via the Chapney Falls Trail. After their climb and a picnic lunch, the boys enjoyed a special outing to Ben & Jerry’s to celebrate one of the camper’s birthdays. The group set-up camp outside of North Conway and cooked a hearty dinner over their campfire. We look forward to seeing the boys back in the Realm after breakfast tomorrow.

Squires also enjoyed a day and night in the White Mountain region, leaving camp early this afternoon for a mountain trip and sleepover. These boys climbed Baldface around Emerald Pool, and then headed to their campsite for dinner and sleeping. The group was really excited for their adventure!

At the Robin Hood Stables our riders enjoy both riding and stable management. They help with grooming and feeding the horses, and of course enjoy riding our furry friends. When our horseback riders return to camp, one of the first places they go is to the Stables to see which of their equine friends have returned. Returning this summer are Blue, JD, Gidget, Joey and Lily. New to the Realm this year are Spirit, Rudy, Davinci, Roxy and Aztec.

Those of us in camp tonight enjoyed Nicky’s BBQ chicken dinner, with fresh corn on the cob, homemade potato salad, coleslaw and cornbread. Our vegetarians enjoyed amazing stuffed portabella mushrooms and BBQ Kale! Thanks, Nicky for a delicious finish to the day.

Wishing you all sweet dreams from the Realm.
