Jay
Jay Cabin is off to a great start for Second Session. Many of the campers are entirely new to Adirondack Camp, but they are quickly bonding into a tight-knit group. Every rest hour they enjoy playing cards, and on Thursday night we all went tubing! All the campers came off the took fishing and tennis together as a cabin, and they had a blast. The weather has been fabulous with only one rainy afternoon. We look forward to the coming weeks together.

Crow
The first week of second session in Crow Cabin has been a blast! We were excited to welcome so many new campers into camp on opening day. The first night, we had a tour of camp to learn about all the activities that the camp has to offer. For our Cabin Night we took the boys snorkeling, which was a great bonding exercise. Making sure to stay with our lifeguard, we swam out to Spider Rock to see if we could find the sunken ship. Although we didn’t find the ship we had an awesome time and even finished the night with some s’mores. It has been great to see all the cabin really getting along. We really missed Asher and Gideon on their three day trip, and Nate even went on a trip during his first week! Henry did so well in his fencing tournament that he placed fifth in a competition in which he fenced against some seniors! It has been a great first week for Crow Cabin!

Owl
This was a fun week in Owl Cabin and a fantastic beginning to the session. The three new campers in the cabin: Evan, Jack, and Henry, have all really taken to camp, each one jumping head first into all the activities. On Thursday, for cabin night, the boys had a campfire with Lynx cabin and roasted marshmallows. They are all talking about how fun they’ve had so far both in and outside the cabin. As their counselors, we are very glad to see these responsible young men become such good friends after only one week together. We’re looking forward to the next three weeks.

Hawk
Everyone from Hawk Cabin has settled in nicely for Second Session! New friends are being made every day, and we have been very busy having loads of fun. For Line Night we played a great game of Capture the Flag. The highlight of the week, though, was probably Thursday evening during Cabin Night. We sat around a nice campfire, looking out at wonderful Lake George surrounded by breathtaking mountains. We roasted marshmallows and each shared our most awesome moments at camp so far. Watching the sunset while listening to the campers share stories from rock climbing, canoeing, and, of course, rest hour was a great way to lead into the weekend. The boys topped off the first week of the session by having a blast at Saturday night’s dance, and they can’t wait for a new week of activities to start!

Gull
The first week for Gull Cabin has been exciting to say the least! Kole, Matthew, and Max all took part in a cabin overnight trip where they hiked two mountains in two days. The all had hilarious stories about their first cabin trip. They weren’t the only campers to take a trip this week: Kade went on another trip, while Juan went whitewater kayaking. Meanwhile Ian has been having a fantastic time wakeboarding and playing lots of tennis. Jason learned how to make paracord bracelets this week. Joe had a great time participating in Blue/White Volleyball and making lots of new friends. Diego and Jacob have been talking in the cabin about how much they loved playing soccer together. They both got ribbons for their soccer skills. They weren’t the only campers to get ribbons; Dove got a ribbon for coming in 3rd place in a fencing competition. Dove has made outstanding improvements in his kayaking skills by not only learning one way to roll, but many ways! Jimmy earned 3 ribbons in two days and was named Climber of the Week. The boys are all excited for their activity schedules for next week!

Moose
Week 1 of Second Session has been great fun. The boys settled into the Senior Line well. We had a good time running from station to station during the activity tour on Sunday night. We had several campers already go on trips, which they thoroughly enjoyed, and one camper reports that he successfully lifted a ski in waterskiing. We learned on Wednesday about the phrase “we’re not made of sugar,” as activities continued during an afternoon of liquid sunshine, and the boys had a blast. On Thursday evening, we played a game of “How Well Do You Know Your Counselor?” for Line Night. The game entailed trivia questions being asked about each counselor and their respective campers trying to figure out the answer. Friday we were graced with beautiful weather to bring the week to a nice close. Moose Cabin is doing quite well, and we’re looking forward to more fun during the second week of the session.

Bear
The first week in our cabin has been awesome. Worries about how these guys from all around the world would all live together were just worries. In reality, the boys became friends immediately and they always had something to talk about. On Monday we went S.U.Ping, and Tuesday was Blue/White dodgeball. Later in the week we had Club Night, Cabin Night, and Line Night. We are definitely enjoying this time we have together. Returning campers are helping the newer campers, which was one of their main goals. Almost everyone went on a trip this week as well, which is awesome because the area around us is astonishing. The beginning of the session was simply great, and we look forward to the adventure continuing.

Buffalo
We’ve had an amazing start to Second Session with Buffalo Cabin. Many of the boys already knew each other from previous summers or from home, and new campers are integrating well and new friendships have been developing quickly. There is already a feeling of brotherhood within the cabin. Canoeing together for our Cabin Night on Monday definitely helped that process. It was a great opportunity for everyone to break the ice and have fun together, and we’re all looking forward to a cabin overnight trip together next week. We are looking forward to getting to know these young men better as the summer goes on.

Elk
This week in Elk we had a blast! For Cabin Night we played basketball against another Ranger cabin with our own Daniel being chosen as MVP! Tuesday evening meant Blue/White and an intense dodgeball competition, and White won the tournament! The boys made improvements on their friendship bracelet-making skills on Wednesday night, which was followed by a surprise visit from an old camper to tell stories from his time at camp. Highlights from activities include many campers participating in the Forest Lake Soccer Practice. Peter won the fencing tournament, and lots of our campers are competing in the mixed doubles tennis tournament. The cabin has really bonded in Second Session and the counselors are really proud.

Crazy Horse
Crazy Horse welcomed five new members for Session Two. On Monday night, the Rangers had a little get-together on the basketball courts. On Tuesday, we took part in Blue/White Dodgeball, and Andrew and Sam were elected as Senior Captains for the Blue Team and White Team. On Wednesday, the Rangers led a game in the dining hall. Thursday night was Line Night and the seniors played, “How Well Do You Know Your Counselor?” A-Rad agreed to be a part of an art show where he will most likely be playing an instrument and singing a song. Andrew and Hugh competed in a sailing race with the yacht club across the lake! This week was also Andrew’s first time sailing. Peter and Morgan have been having jam sessions in the cabin. Sam went on a white water kayaking trip down the Sacandaga River. Terrence went on a hiking trip and was excited to see the new campers in Crazy Horse. Christian is working hard in kayaking and hopes to master a trick called the “stern squirt.” Will has been enjoying all of his activities. Noah entered the tennis tournament is hoping to bring home the gold! Ben’s true passion this week has been S.U.P., and he was very happy to be back on the S.U.P. boards. The Rangers also helped clean camp this week. They have been a great help in the kitchen and in activities. Everyone is looking forward to next week.

Mink
It has been such an exciting first week in Mink Cabin! The girls love being in the newest cabin on the line. We all work hard to keep the cabin clean and it has been showing in our inspection scores. They all gave a great effort on Sunday to compete in a cabin scavenger hunt that introduced them to the camp traditions. The movie, popcorn, and candy for our Cabin Night on Thursday was a perfect way for us to relax after a busy week of activities. The girls were all in Culinary Fun together and made some delicious food. Gwen and Matilde were brave enough to sign up for an overnight trip, Anna solo-canoed all the way back from Glenburnie, Tess is loving tennis court games, Kara is having a blast in Eagle-I, and Myrtle absolutely loved Blue/White dodgeball. We were all excited for waffles and the dance on Saturday. Overall, Mink Cabin is having a great first week. We can’t wait to see what the next week has in store.

Deer
The first week of camp has been great for Deer Cabin! The girls are already getting into the camp spirit! Some of our girls took steps to become Braves by passing their silence tests and completing service, while the girls who are already Braves look forward to claiming coup at Awiskini. All the girls had a blast S.U.P.ing for Cabin Night as well as competing with the boys in a game of Capture the Flag for Line Night. After such a fun week, Deer Cabin is looking forward to what next week brings.

Fox
Week 5 started with seven new campers coming in,
Fox Cabin couldn’t wait for the second session to begin.
For Cabin Night, we went tubing and had loads of fun,
The girls wanted to go again and again, never wanting to be done.
Keeley, Chloe, and Zoey all went on trips.
Clare, Katie, and Taylor loved S.U.P. and took some dips.
Anastassia and Abbey made some new friends,
They’re fitting in well, making friendships that will never end.
As Week 5 comes to a close and a new week starts,
We enjoy the next week with a warm smile and open hearts.

Lynx
For Cabin Night this week Lynx Cabin enjoyed making s’mores with Owl Cabin and taking a dip in the lake, with the game “Intruder” afterwards. For Line Night, we played Capture the Flag with entire Junior and Intermediate Lines. Lucy learned how to stern a canoe this week. Caroline was elected the White Team Intermediate Girls’ Captain. Mary Rose enjoyed welcoming all the second session campers. Eva had a blast in kayaking and culinary fun. Caitlin loved rock climbing, culinary fun, and meeting new friends. Gogo learned how to get out of the wake in waterskiing and earned two ribbons! Maddie’s favorite part of this week was roasting marshmallows. Simone loved being in archery this week. Amelia went on a three-day overnight trip, and Angie enjoyed catching sunfish in fishing this week. The girls also participated in Blue/White dodgeball and had a blast! They are very excited for more Blue/White activities to come and had a great time dressing up for Nerd Lunch. We can’t wait for the second week of the session to start!

Caribou
This week has flown by in Caribou Cabin, and there were certainly many events to make our first week together amazing! We started with a great game of Capture the Flag for Line Night, and Rachel represented Caribou by winning the whole game of Simon Says! Maddie not only finished the first step in becoming a Brave by completing her silence test, but then wowed us all with her incredible singing and guitar playing skills that night. We all had a great time playing in our first Blue/White event: Dodgeball! A big HOW to Alejandra, who was voted Blue Team Intermediate Captain! For Cabin Night we all got nice and cozy while watching and singing along to Frozen. This week was quite eventful for our cabin, and all of the counselors are super impressed with the girls for demonstrating responsibility and working together to clean for really high inspection scores. We’ve had so much fun in our first week and are all so excited for an even better next three weeks!

Cougar
Wow! What an exciting week we’ve had here in Cougar Cabin, gladly welcoming the new campers! We started the week by bonding in the waterski boats as we all went tubing for Cabin Night! The next day, however, the girls got to work on their memory and silence tests, and we were all excited for Awiskini on Friday night. We had a camper go on a white water kayaking trip and a few who got up on waterskis for the first time! We are all enjoying a relaxing weekend to regroup and do it all again next week. How Camp!
Plaque of the Week for Cougar Cabin: Independence
We had many first-year campers come into Cougar this week. As we all know, heading to activities on our own can be a little bit scary, but the girls all rocked their activities. How Independence!

Panther
We in Panther Cabin were so glad to kick-start our week with a Blue/White game of dodgeball, which led into a wonderful Cabin Night with the girls. The girls have enjoyed themselves this first week while making new friends and memories. During Senior Line Night, the girls of Panther Cabin bonded with the other senior girls’ cabins for meditation and yoga night, which was very relaxing and inspirational for all of us. Afterwards, we jammed to music and munched on juicy watermelons. The week went well with campers making memories, enjoying themselves, and wanting to send a “namaste” home from Panther cabin.

Northwind
The first week of Second Session has already come to an end, but what a week we have had! It started with a fun Cabin Night which consisted of popcorn and a movie. All of the girls thoroughly enjoyed spending time together as a cabin. Another great evening spent together was Line Night where we all joined in for yoga, meditation, and eating watermelon. The girls got on very well as a cabin and ended the evening listening to music together on Senior Point. All in all, it was a great week for Northwind!

Wolf Den
Week 5 in Wolf Den Cabin has been a wonderful week of change! While we were sad to say goodbye to our four-week gals, we were overjoyed to receive three new friends in Kyra, Abby, and Oriana! This week, the girls continued to display effort and courage as they signed up for new activities and adventures. On Wednesday night, Ashley was elected female Senior Captain for the White Team. On Thursday and Friday, our very own Elena and Ashley represented Adirondack Camp while sailing in the Northern Lake George Yacht Club’s Cheeseburger in Paradise Regatta. We are extremely excited to see what this new group of Rangers has in store for us this session! HOW!

Deer
It was such a great week in Deer Cabin!!! We’re so sad to see First Session come to an end, but we’re so happy to celebrate the girls’ accomplishments! Mikayla got a dog tag for her wonderful presence in the cabin. Ainsley and Olivia got their dog tags for excellence in Land Sports; Olivia even earned her black arrow in archery! Gwen, Anna, and Kara did beautiful work in the arts and they, too, earned dog tags (Anna got 2!). Gwen is so proud of her awesome mini-cabin that she made in Creative Arts, and Kara made some really cool graffiti art, which she’s giving to her cousin, Zan. Lexi was the only Junior to earn not one, but two, dog tags for her excellence in water activities! She also earned her Blue Arrow in archery. Ainsley has improved tremendously in tennis; her counselors love having her in class! Gwen also loves tennis- her serve is almost as good as her cartwheels! In the same vein, swimming counselors rave about Mikayla- she’s earned many points and has improved her strokes. As a whole, the girls absolutely loved the surprise dance we had this week. It was a great way to end a fantastic first session!

Fox
It has been a busy last week of the session in Fox Cabin. Our girls have been all over the place, making the most of their time. Two girls, Sophie and Samantha, became Braves, while Charlotte sang at Gathering. All the girls enjoyed the Rangers’ “roaring 20’s” Special Day and Half Show. When awards rolled around, Fox Cabin truly stood out, with girls winning dog tags in all the pillars as well as in Cabin Life. How, Fox Cabin!

Lynx
The girls really enjoyed the last week of First Session. We had 3 days of activities in which the girls completed many of their goals for the summer! On Thursday and Friday we received awards for Cabin Life and activities, and we played a last Blue/White game of intermediate soccer. We had a surprise dance on Wednesday. Simone, Amelia, Mary Rose, and Lucy are sad to say goodbye to their friends on Saturday. Chloe loved waterskiing this week. Kat performed a beautiful song Monday night. Sydney got a Cabin Life dog tag. Ellie got a special bracelet from rock climbing. Aine got her heel hook in rock climbing. Nya loved archery this week. Grace made a cuddly monster in Creative Arts. Melina loved sitting at the overflow table at lunch. It has been a busy week, as usual, and we wish our first session campers a great rest of the summer! Noonway!

Caribou
With all the craziness of the last week of camp , Caribou Cabin has been having an awesome time on the peninsula. We all enjoyed two Special Days this past week: a mashup of Madagascar and Frozen, and a Ranger-run “Roaring 20’s” themed day. All the girls also shared some laughs at the Comedy Club show and Half Show, particularly when the counselor impersonations happened. The girls got to see all of their beautiful artwork on display for Gallery Night- everything from masks to graffiti to landscape paintings. We closed out a jam-packed week with delicious food at banquet, celebrating a great last meal and a summer full of memories. These past four weeks have flown by and all of the girls have developed into incredible leaders on the line and in activities. We are so sad to be leaving but are so lucky to have had four great weeks together!

Cougar
On Monday there was a concert with some amazing performances and the girls really enjoyed the evening. At the coup ceremony, Cameron and Meredith became Braves! HOW! There was a 1920’s Special Day this week where the staff dressed up as famous figures from the era! The campers took part in different activities to receive candy (the most exciting thing ever). Half Show was brilliant; all the performers were amazing. The girls came back very energetic after an evening with lots of laughing. The girls really enjoyed banquet; the food was lovely. The counselors let the girls loose with their cameras to take lots of “selfies” and funny pictures. It will be sad for us all to say goodbye, but we have had a great summer and will hopefully all be reunited next year.

Mink
This last week couldn’t have ended the summer better for the girls in Mink Cabin. Everyone got to try the activities they had been hoping for all summer, like windsurfing and rock climbing, while others got to spend a few last days in their all-time favorites, like canoeing. On Monday night we all enjoyed the first ADK concert. The girls couldn’t stop talking about how impressed they were with all their fellow campers. Banquet lunch was delicious and the butternut squash soup was a unanimous favorite. We’ve spent a lot of time this week all piled on one bed, hanging out with each other for as long as possible. It’s been a great session for Mink Cabin!

Panther
The girls relished their final days at ADK. Irene competed against Forest Lake Camp in fencing, winning by the end of the day. Across the peninsula Sophie performed a 360 turn in SUP. Anna got a Black Arrow in archery. Alice participated in Blue/White Basketball. Banquet was on Friday, where great food was eaten by all. In kayaking, Fedi got her roll. Zan got up on trick skis, achieving her goal. Rachel C. improved her fishing game and Marie and Jo sang before the camp on Bastille Day, giving France a good boost. On Friday the cabin went tubing, and Rachel J. and Sonya in particular had a ton of fun. In tennis this week Beth scored points while hanging out in the sun. First Session has been great this year and it seems like just yesterday we all arrived! Noonway, First Session!

Northwind
Northwind Cabin had an amazing Week 4. Ivy, Stephanie, and Kate all did an incredible job in “Pandamonium” performances. Clara played piano and Kathryn sang beautifully at Gallery Night. We coined the term “North for the wind!” because of how many ribbons, plaques, awards, and dog tags Northwind girls won this session. Eliza became a Brave this week and Jules participated in Blue/White SUP. JJ won awards in trips and rock climbing. Clara and Manon sang the French National Anthem on Bastille Day. We all enjoyed Half Show and are preparing for Second Session. We are sad to see our First Session friends go. Thanks for such an amazing summer!

Wolf Den
Week Four with the Wolf Den girls has been the crowning jewel of First Session. While activities remained exciting Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, it was nothing compared to the 1920’s-themed Special Day they planned for Thursday. All the Rangers planned for, organized, and put on a fantastic morning and afternoon of 20’s-themed games and activities where the kids won tickets, which earned them candy in the end. In addition to a fantastic day, our ladies put on the funniest “If I were not a Ranger…” skit to date for the camp Half Show. While all of our girls thrived in creating events and leading the camp into a great next session, we will dearly miss our 4-week campers Jess, Chloe, and Anastasia. We are very excited for new friends and faces, however this first session with these nine great Rangers will be a tough one to beat!

Jay
The final week of the first session has been filled with astounding achievements and awesome activities. We have had two Special Days within the past week (a Madagascar/Frozen Day and a “Roaring 20’s” themed afternoon, which outlawed the consumption of candy at camp!). On Wednesday, we had the final dance of the session, and at this party, two of our campers, Tom and Hayden, proved themselves to be particularly enthusiastic dancers!
Many of our campers have been recognized by the Arts, Waterfront, or Land Pillar. Finally, we said “Noonway,” to our awesome campers with a spectacular drama performance by some campers and an incredible staff/camper show organized by the Rangers. We have had an amazing first session and sincerely hope that these campers will return again next year.

Crow
This week in Crow Cabin has been a week to remember! So many of our Crow campers received awards for a number of different things. All of the campers received at least one dog tag, which is awesome! Matt and Tevin did especially well, receiving special recognition for the number of points accumulated over the last four weeks. Also, Daniel received a Trips award for the trips he has gone on over the course of the summer. Henry, Michael, Gideon, and Asher achieved an incredible amount of points for their activities as well.
We had an awesome time at the camp dance on Wednesday, and it was great to see all the boys having fun on the dance floor. On the same note, there were two different Special Days that went extremely well and all the boys showed great participation. The first Special Day was a combination of Madagascar and Frozen, which involved staff dressed up as animals from the zoo in the morning and then as Frozen characters in the afternoon. There were loads of activities going on throughout the day. All in all, the last week has seen some amazing accomplishments. The campers in Crow have done so well and should be very proud of themselves!

Owl
It’s been another fantastic week in Owl Cabin, with our final seven days of the first session filled with clear skies and light hearts. From Madagascar/Frozen (hot vs. cold) Special Day on Sunday, to a roaring 20’s theme on Thursday, the costumes have been turning heads on the peninsula left and right! A big “How!” to all of our new Braves this week- with the final coup ceremony taking place on Friday, Owl Cabin has been absolutely cleaning up.
After a session-long wait, our (kind of) patient campers finally got to go tubing on the waterski boats, with Trey earning honors for the most air and the biggest wipe-out (although Miguel and Mateo could probably give him a run for his money). We also had a blast at the best grudge match of the greater Lake George area, also known as Blue/White Intermediate Soccer (How White, by a score of 2-1). Through four weeks, we’ve seen a tremendous amount of growth and leadership from our boys. A special shout out to the courage of Alex and Jack, who are here from a long way, and for the first time ever. We could not be prouder of the tremendous twelve!

Hawk
The last week of First Session has drawn to a close with emotions running high. The week brought many highs, with the Hawks winning the inspection banner for the second week in a row. Many awards were won with dog tags being claimed, including Land Sports, Waterfront, Creative Arts, Trips, and Cabin Life awards. In addition to winning all sorts of awards, the campers worked hard in activities this week. We Hawk Cabin staff are sad to see so many of our great campers depart!

Gull
Gull Cabin can’t believe that this session has come to an end,
But not before we all had made a new friend.
This last week came and went by really fast,
But in that time, we all had a blast.
The first three days were normal activities,
And on Tuesday night we had our last Awiskini.
There were Blue/White competitions including SUP,
White Team swept the day and tied it all up.
Forest Lake came to camp to fence and play ball,
We beat them in both because ADK does it all.
The Rangers ran Half Show that had lots of funnies,
They also planned Special Day that was based in the 20’s.
Awards and ribbons were given out to the great,
But as we all know, it was already the kids’ fate.
This was art’s week with a concert and gallery,
They also put on skits that made us all happy.
At Friday’s fancy banquet we had a nice meal,
It was all so extravagant and pretty surreal.
To our first session campers we must say goodbye,
It’s ok to feel sad and even to cry.
But let’s be happy about the memories we have made,
We can reminisce on Lake George in which we used to wade.
Now next summer’s beginning isn’t that far away,
So until then, we give you all a NOONWAY!

Moose
It’s been a fantastic 4 weeks. It’s been a great time with the boys and they have really become a stellar group over the course of the session. Dave, Will, and I are quite proud of the growth each cabin member has exhibited as well as the awards they’ve received. This week alone the boys took home plenty of awards: Mathias got the Messy Science Award; Bohden got a Cabin Life ribbon for the most creative dance outfits; Oren got a Trips dogtag; Thomas participated in Midnight Fencing, earned 2 Land dog tags, and got a Blue Arrow; Liam got a Golden Emblem, Trips dog tag, and Blue Arrow; Conrad earned sailing ribbons and a Cabin Life ribbon for best wake-up routine; Michael got SUP ribbons and a Waterfront dog tag; Charles got an Arts dog tag and a Golden Emblem, Fran earned a kayak ribbon and a Cabin Life dog tag, Lucas got the Most Miles emblem and Cabin Life, Trips, and Arts dog tags; Malcolm got Climber of the Week, the Rock Climbing Plaque, and a land dog tag, and Henry got a Waterfront dog tag, kayak ribbon, and waterski ribbon. Clearly, the boys have been very busy these four weeks and we couldn’t be prouder of them!

Bear
Week Four in Bear Cabin had a really nice atmosphere to it. We went tubing, played some Awiskini games, danced, enjoyed Half Show (which was spectacular), and said goodbye to some of our favorite activities and friends. That was the hardest part. The boys have exchanged contact information because they want to keep in touch after camp is over. This cabin was quite united, and that made us very happy to see. We already talked about next year and all of them want to come back to camp as soon as possible. The boys worked well not only as a cabin, but as individuals too. Many received camp awards, dog tags, and other prizes. It was simply a great month for all of us!

Buffalo
Buffalo Cabin has had a fantastic 4th week here at Adirondack Camp. On Tuesday, our rival camp, Forest Lake, came to challenge us in basketball and fencing. We won comfortably in both contests, and our own John, Chris, Mike, and Stefan were strong contributors to the basketball victory. In fact, Buffalo Cabin had the highest representation on the ADK basketball team, and the other half of the cabin was there to support their cabinmates. Other highlights include Max hiking the Lake George Five Alive, a grueling five-mountains-in-one-day trip for which he earned a cool one-of-a-kind t-shirt. Max also was awarded the Creative Arts plaque for his amazing drawing skills, which had been showcased at Gallery Night. Will also deserves a mention for winning an award for outstanding contributions to Cabin Life across the boys’ line. It has been an amazing four weeks with our Buffalo boys, and we wish all the best to those boys who have departed for the summer. Have a great rest of the summer and a wonderful school year!

Elk
This week was an interesting week! We had a rival camp come and play against us in a few activities! We absolutely dominated Forest Lake Camp in basketball, with a great performance from Alvaro and Simon. There was a surprise dance on Wednesday, which allowed the camp, and especially the Rangers, to bond. For some it might have been their last camp dance ever! There were a heap of awards given out for activities. The Rangers won a lot, so look for their photos online. Overall Elk had a great week of bonding and enjoyment and definitely ended the session (and for some, their 2014 camp experience) with a bang!

Crazy Horse
The first session of camp closed with music, awards, and Blue/White events. On Monday night, the whole camp took part in Gallery Night. The tennis courts were used to display drawings, masks, paintings, and Eagle-i videos. The basketball court was used for the drama class. After the art expo, musical performances took place on the porch of the drama shed. Arian played a song on his uke and blew the crowd away. On Tuesday night the campers had their last Awiskini. August and Terrence got to dress up as Sachems for the ceremony. On Wednesday night, the campers were surprised with a dance. On Thursday, the campers had Blue/White in the morning. The seniors had basketball. Will F. helped White to victory, as they won the game 69-59. Sam got a shirt for trips for hiking 20 miles in 4 hours! On Thursday afternoon the Rangers hosted Special Day. The theme was the roaring 20’s. Kevin played beautiful jazz melodies on his trumpet and Giorgio played the role of Al Capone. Hugh made a wonderful Gatsby and Will L. and Christian were both stockholders. On Friday the Rangers were rewarded for all their hard work throughout the session with going to Windchill for ice cream. The Rangers are a big reason First Session was so great! How Rangers!
