Yesterday our Wawayanda campers took their swim tests down at the waterfront. It was a beautiful day, the sun was out, sunscreen was flowing and the new water bottles were put to good use.

Campers got the opportunity to take the test under the watchful eye of our  lifeguards and they were cheered on by their fellow village friends, counselors and Directors who also got their toes wet. We also managed to complete the tests with only 2 renditions of Baby Shark! For those that didn’t want to take part in the tests they still got to paddle and play in the shallow area and build some awesome sandcastles with their new friends.

It was a great success all round and everyone is looking forward to more fun days down at the waterfront this session.
