First Day of Camp!

Our first day of camp was a huge success! We had so much fun in the sunny weather. Our campers started out the day decorating their home base rooms around the mooredale house. Our junior campers then played a whole bunch of different games including capture the flag and charades, while our inter campers played circle games and tag. Our seniors spent the morning getting to know one another while playing different sports and ice breaker games. It was quite hot out so it was especially nice to be in the pool for our morning lessons and free swim. For lunch we ate burgers, corn, and melon. 

In the afternoon our campers rotated between music and drama activities, arts & crafts, archery, geoscience, and cooking. In music and drama our inter girl campers played fun games like freeze dance and musical chairs. At arts and crafts our juniors made toilet paper roll butterflies and spent the rest of the afternoon learning french! At geoscience our inter boy campers made forts on our back lawn to cool down, which was followed by cookie baking! Our seniors spent the afternoon down at Rosedale Park for their tennis lessons. The heat was intense at some points but our staff made sure our campers were wearing their hats and sunscreen, as well as drinking lots of water. All in all the beautiful day was a great kickstart to the summer and we could not be more excited for the rest of the session!
