We all had another great day in the Valley! Today saw Windsong and Pac head out on the first of our overnights. Every camper gets the opportunity to spend a night cooking over an open fire, playing games in the woods, and sleeping out under the stars. Windsong and Pac, as our oldest campers, do a two night overnight in our East Valley. Windsong will stay at Merrill Pavilion which has in incredible panoramic view of the Catskills. Pac will stay at the aptly named Pine Grove which is nestled in a thick pine forest. Tomorrow they will switch places.

In other news from our villages, everyone had their first full waterfront period today. There was free swim, the water trampoline, the water slide, and numerous boating options available for our campers.

The picture below is of Tacoma and Lenape at their evening program. They had Challenge Night with our MAC villages in the Dining Hall. Some of the challenges included ‘Best Counselor Impersonation’, ‘Hoola Hoop Champion’, and a judge non-favorite, ‘Smelliest Shoe’.

Tomorrow will see Tacoma and Lenape go on their overnights.
