It’s rest hour now as I write on Friday, nearly a week into our second session. We decided to postpone our Tent Day trip to the beach today as it’s pretty wet and cool today; not a great day for the beach, but a wonderful day to be at Chewonki. We’ll head to Reid St. Park tomorrow for our beach day. The first week of the session has been a strong one. Tuesday was a very wet day, but things cleared up nicely for Wednesday and most of Thursday. Many of our cabins have ventured out to the southern tip of Chewonki Neck for a cabin overnight (including all of the Puffins on Thursday night) and Fo’c’s’le, New Hall, Jungle and Juniper are now out on their cabin wilderness trips. We’ve had some fun evening activities, including the first Capture the Rocks of the second session on Monday night. Spirits were high as the Sags and the Hocs met in our traditional variation on Capture the Flag. Be sure to keep up with our photo stream on the Flickr website. There are some great images here. More details will follow over the next few days, but in the meantime, here is an update from our Farm Activity and Papa Puffin Bryce Leary. Sincerely, Garth Altenburg, Camp Director From the Farm, by Bryce Leary These past weeks in farm we have had a very exciting opportunity land right on our doorstep. Leroy the calf was born about four weeks ago and has quickly become an important part of farm activity life. Each day of activities campers are given the chance to help the farmers feed Leroy. He is currently drinking about 1.5 gallons of milk a day! Further, many campers have had the opportunity to help halter train Leroy. A halter is essentially a leash for livestock. On many an afternoon campers can be seen coaxing Leroy around the farm on his halter. We typically tie him up wherever we are working for that day whether it be a pasture, garden or orchard and he watches as we learn and play various games. We’re very excited to have Leroy with us and hope you stop by the barn to say hello.
