Making the Most Despite Moisture on Monday Morning (How’s That for Alliteration?)

Monday blues aren’t a thing at camp.  Some morning rain definitely can’t dampen our spirits. After a hearty breakfast of pancakes and cereal, we had everything we needed for awesome team building time. Then how cool was our time in Free to Learn you ask? Super cool! We got to build forts and play dominoes all down in our favorite Walnut Grove. After Free to Learn, we headed off to the dining hall for lunch–Natasha’s delicious Sloppy Joes (with locally-raised beef). Then we headed to the cabins for Siesta. After that, we had camptivities–canoeing and paddle boarding, 9-square, and a river walk. After that we got a snack at La Tienda then headed out for another camptivity. Some people did archery, some rode bikes, and others enjoyed horse riding. After a quick clean-up we ate chicken nuggets for dinner before an evening all camp activity of Capture the Flag. Then wound down with some cabin activities before bedtime. Another great day!
