Gull Cabin Blog
Gull Cabin kicked off their first week with a bang! The boys were all excited to reunite as the entire cabin is made up of returning campers. Their first day at Camp started well as the boys managed to pull off a perfect score in inspection. The boys were all very proud of their efforts and were rewarded with an evening tubing on the lake! They loved being on the water and getting tossed off the tube a couple of times.
Due to Gull Cabin’s spirit, the dining hall has been full of Gull’s chants and songs at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The boys have rallied other campers and cabins in singing as loud as they can and enjoying each other’s company!
On Saturday night, Gull Cabin participated in the weekend dance where the boys pulled off some thrilling dance moves in front of each other, resulting in some good cabin bonding and lots of fun. The weekend routine continued as the boys participated in activities such as Magic the Gathering, borg ball, frisbee, basketball, and soccer; and they gave each game their best shot!
We are encouraging the boys to be role models not just in their cabin, but on the whole line and throughout their activities at Camp. The boys have already shown that they can achieve anything that they put their minds to.
Gull Cabin is ready for their next week at Adirondack Camp!

Hawk Cabin Blog
Hawk Cabin started their summer off well! All twelve campers arrived to meet familiar and new faces for the first time. The first night at Camp for Hawk Cabin featured a game of dodge ball verse the younger Owl Cabin. The Hawk boys managed to pull off a victory in a well-played match!
As the week went on, Hawk Cabin involved themselves in a variety of activities that included windsurfing, waterskiing, soccer, rock climbing, and kayaking. The boys have applied themselves well throughout their activities and have already begun to achieve goals they have set here at Camp.
The boys have started to bond well with each other, forming friendships that can last a lifetime. On Wednesday night Hawk Cabin participated in Blue/White dodge ball, where both teams pushed themselves to the limits. It was an awesome game to watch!
Hawk Cabin has also come up with their own motto, “class, but expected.” This means that it is expected that the boys show they are role models to everyone not only in their cabin but at Camp.
We are sad to say goodbye to Grant, Eyal, and Alex who are heading home this weekend. We had a great two weeks with them and hope to see them back next summer! The rest of the Hawk Cabin boys are eager to take on the next week at Adirondack Camp.

Heron Cabin Blogs
Heron Cabin has had a great start to their summer! All eight campers started to gel and form new friendships as soon as they were dropped off by their parents.
On Monday afternoon the campers played ice breaker games with their new counselors. That led to an awesome soccer match against Crow cabin. They had so much fun getting to work together as a team and run around for the night.
Throughout the week Heron Cabin took on any activity that came their way — fishing, basketball, water skills, wakeboarding, tennis, rock climbing, volleyball, and of course… soccer. The Heron boys then showed off their dodge ball skills in a thrilling game of Blue/White dodge ball. Eventually, White team managed to pull it out of the hat and win the series decider.
We are sad to see Miller, Fletcher, and Peter head home this weekend. We had an awesome two weeks with them and hope to see them back again next summer!
The rest of Heron Cabin will be looking forward to next week’s activities and daily life at ADK with full hearts and a desire to take on anything that comes their way!

Crow Cabin Blog
Crow cabin strolled into Camp with parents, friendships and big smiles! Friends were reunited and many new friendships formed very quickly. Crow played a fantastic game of soccer against the younger Heron Cabin. Crow Cabin was victorious; and more importantly this was the beginning of new friendships.
The returning campers in the cabin have been awesome helping new campers’ transition to camp life. They have learned a lot from each other, which was great to see! This led to high inspection scores which lifted the spirit of the boys every morning.
Crow has a special sign in the cabin that says, “play like a champion today”. We explained to the boys that if they touched the sign, they would have a really good day and “play like a champion.” The boys were super motivated by this and worked hard participating throughout Camp. They gave everything their best go in activities such as water skills, SUP, soccer, and water skiing.
We are sad to see Adam, Finn, and Benjamin head home this weekend! We have had so much fun with them and hope to see them again next year!
The rest of the Crow Cabin campers are looking forward to the week ahead!

Owl Cabin Blog
Owl Cabin counselors were excited to welcome their campers as new and old faces arrived. For the first night of camp Owl played an exciting game of dodgeball. They worked hard as a team and showed great communication skills!
The boys have done a great job getting involved in all sorts of activities, including sailing, archery, canoeing, soccer, and water skills. They have developed new skills and made new friends along the way.
On Wednesday night the campers played a huge game of Capture the Flag with the rest of the Junior/Intermediate Boys’ line. The boys ran around all night, putting all their effort into their teams.
The counselors have put up fairy lights, which give off a cool glow in the cabin that the boys love. Magic the Gathering is a huge part of Owl Cabin’s daily routine, especially at rest hour. It is a great way for the boys to spend some quality time together.
We are sad to see some of our friends leave this weekend! Kinoti, Liam, and Alex are heading home and they will be greatly missed. We hope to see you back next summer! The rest of Owl Cabin is certainly looking forward to next week at Camp and to moving forward together as a cabin!
