Today was another hot and sunny day but that didn’t stop everyone from getting active (but we did make sure we were staying hydrated and sunscreened). Sacky and Tacoma both took part in Geronimo today, staying nicely shaded under our luggage tent to play. Sunburst spent the day doing activities related to leadership and mentoring others.

The big event today was overnights. Windsong and Pac continued their 2 night overnight in our East Valley, Windsong at a spot near our Farm Camp and Pac up at Merrill Pavilion. Tacoma and Lenape divided their cabins and were spread out a little bit closer to our main property.

Tomorrow our last overnights will go out with Sacky, Hemlock, and Sunburst all doing their overnights (Sunburst doing theirs at a special surprise spot that will be revealed in tomorrow’s blog, stay tuned!)
