Mink Cabin has had a full week of trying many different activities all around Camp. The Arts Pillar was a major favorite this week, with many girls trying out photography, ceramics, painting, and dance! Ginevra’s favorite part of the week was performing her dance in front of the whole Camp, and Amelia’s favorite was getting to see the performance! Amanda also loved the arts this week and was excited about a book that she made for her mom. Two girls, Amelia and Haley, went out on an early morning fishing trip this week! They had a ton of fun and caught a lot of fish.
Mink Cabin was also very proud to be the inspection winners of week one! We are going to miss Amanda and Amelia who are leaving this weekend so much, but also look forward to welcoming our two new campers!- Cass, Taylor, and Dana
The hot weather on the peninsula has led to Deer Cabin spending a majority of this week in the water! For Cabin Night they had so much fun tubing! They’ve also been in the water for activities, like waterskiing, canoeing, swimming, and kayaking! The girls have been working hard on developing their skills in these activities. Grace got up in waterskiing for the first time, and Morgan got her roll in kayaking!
Deer Cabin has been full of ADK Camp spirit this week. They have loved playing in Blue/White, dancing at the dance, and have even been working hard to improve their inspection scores. Last but not least, Deer Cabin loves their cabin ball named Petunia! The girls cannot stop talking about and playing with their favorite glittery ball.
We are going to miss Morgan, Tate, Xan, and Grace so much, but are excited to welcome our new two weekers!- Zoe, Kristen, Cat
Fox Cabin has done a lot of bonding this past week. One of their favorite things to do together as a cabin is Polar Bear. All the girls jump into Junior Cove in the morning for an invigorating start to the day. To end the day, the girls all get snuggled in their beds and listen to their counselors read Harry Potter. The whole cabin was also very excited to eat chicken patties for lunch one day this week!
Fox campers have been working hard together to get higher scores on inspection. The girls were very supportive of Lila who performed a hilarious drama skit — a riff on Shark Tank — for all of Camp. They were also very proud of Calliope who tried pickles for the first time!
We are all going to miss Cleo who went home this weekend considerably. Noonway Cleo!- Zan, Liv, Mill
Lynx Cabin has grown close over the past two weeks. Lynx is well known for their pre-bedtime dance parties. After the dance party, they have a great time getting to know one another during their daily question/answer circle once everyone is all tucked in. One of their most recent questions was “If you could name the 51st State what would it be and what would it be known for?”. The girls have had a lot of fun in water activities with it being so hot! Wet and Wild Wednesday in Canoeing is a massive hit for Lynx Cabin; it was Katya and Heidi’s favorite part of the week! Sophia swam the Medium Triangle, Bella had fun in wobble wars at SUP, and Sarah loved playing on the new water mat at Intermediate Point. We are looking forward to Hannah joining us this weekend!
Congratulations to Lynx Cabin on winning week one inspection!- Fiona, Alanah, Alice
Caribou Cabin has had a fabulous week! The girls are bonding and forming memories that will last a lifetime. They loved watching fireworks together on the 4th of July and love when they get to watch the sunset together. Most of Caribou Cabin has been out on several different trips this week! Aurora, Francesca, Paige, and Sophie all went on a three-day Northville-Placid Trail (NLP) trip. When they came back several of the girls went out on even more trips! The girls bond every night by sharing answers to a different interesting question. One night one of their questions was “If you could travel back to any time period, what would it be?”. At the beginning of the week we welcomed Violette, and this weekend Anna is joining us! Isabelle and Abigail had to leave this weekend, and we will miss them greatly!- Erin, Sydney, Eimear, Veronica
WE HAD CHICKEN PATTIES FOR LUNCH ON WEDNESDAY!! Sometimes it’s the little things :)
Cougar had a very chill week. One of the girls’ highlights was their “Cloud Circle” where they laid in a circle, stared up at the clouds, and talked about life. Cougar Cabin is making the transition from Intermediates to Seniors swimmingly. They do everything together and are such a strong unit. They support each other and encourage one another, in activities and in the cabin. We are so impressed in how close they have gotten to one another, and we are so proud to help them on their journey on to the Senior Line. We can’t wait to see them grow throughout the summer.

In the words of Sophie Parr, “this week was exquisite, decadent, and delightful.” Panther Cabin was full of giggles all week long, and enjoyed many activities! Isabel learned to windsurf, Zoey and Lily loved their rock climbing trips, and SUP was a hit with Panther Cabin this week. 4th of July was a highlight this week for the cabin. We sat out on Senior Point with chill music and watched the fireworks across the lake. It was perfect Cabin bonding time and an excellent way to spend the night of the 4th. The American girls in the cabin were excited to share the tradition of fireworks with the International girls. Week 2 was one for the books!

We are incredibly proud of how inclusive all of our girls in Northwind are! We always knew they were great girls, but we are so happy that they are able to bond as one large group in such a large cabin. Anie Cleary brought her ukelele to camp, and the girls have been writing a song together. They add a new verse every few days. They sing it for anyone who will listen, and it keeps us laughing all day. They are one of the closest cabins we have among the Senior girls, and we couldn’t be more excited to have them all.

Week 2 was another excellent week in Wolf Den. The girls are getting closer and closer by the day. They bonded together both as girls and with their male friends in Crazy Horse. The Rangers are really coming together as a group and are blossoming into remarkable young adults. Between leading service projects for the rest of Camp, running cookie break, and being role models for the younger kids, the Rangers really crushed it this week! Wolf Den loved being able to tube during Line-Up-Sign-Up to escape the heat. They even did Polar Bear in the morning together! The girls are really excited to continue to have Ranger Chills around campfires and grow as leaders. We can’t wait for the coming weeks.
