Mink Cabin

Mink Cabin has had a wonderful second week at ADK! Eleanor, Laurie, Clara, and Daisy had an incredible time roasting marshmallows at the girls’ campfire for Cabin Night on Monday, where they bonded with the counselors and learned how to make a fire! They also enjoyed representing the girl’s line in Blue/White soccer on Wednesday.

Eleanor has really been enjoying getting to know everyone at Camp; she almost has all the counselor’s names memorized! Laurie had an awesome time making wire sculptures in creative arts this week. Clara really enjoyed sailing on Lake George- an activity she excels at, and also practicing her archery skills for the second week in a row! Daisy had fun performing her dance for the entire Camp, and really loved going on her micro trip!

The four girls were really proud of themselves for winning the Junior Inspection Banner two weeks in a row- they’re working hard to claim it for the third!

This week we also had to say goodbye to Daisy. The three girls have loved getting to know her, and can’t wait to see their new friend next year!

Stay tuned for week 3!

Deer Cabin

What a great second week in Deer Cabin! Deer girls have spent the week getting to know each other better, and the returners have warmly welcomed the new campers! This week the girls went tubing for Cabin Night- a Camp-wide favorite! They loved spending time on the boat with the whole cabin and counselors.

Ginevra expressed that this was her favorite part of the week, and she has also enjoyed being White Team Junior Captain! Natalie learned how to SUP for the first time, and that has become her new favorite activity! Rachel has loved going on trips, and also taking Dance! Sammie continues to try new activities every week, and make new friends with campers all over Camp! Marlene loved taking ceramics for the second week in a row, and also went on some hiking trips. Matilda took Dance with some of the girls in Deer Cabin, and also went on the art trip.

This week we were sad to say goodbye to Marlene and Matilda. We had some much fun getting to know them during these two weeks, and can’t wait to see them next year!

Stay tuned for week 3!

Fox Cabin

Fox Cabin is loving week two at ADK! A cabin of mostly returners, they spent week two focusing on activities that they wanted to master.

They started off the week by welcoming Lucy, a familiar face from last summer. Lucy enjoyed taking canoeing, ceramics, and soccer! Grace, Zuza, Xan, Tate, and Charlie all passed their tests of silence, service, and memory, and are now Adirondack Braves! Haley was very excited to turn10 years old, and also to get up on one ski! Morgan has been working hard in kayaking and is focusing on getting her handroll.

Each week, Fox Cabin sets personal goals that they work to achieve throughout the summer. They hang the goals on the cabin wall where they are visible to the entire cabin. The girls are all doing a great job working towards these goals, and the counselors have seen so much growth and development because of them!

We were sad to say goodbye to Charlie, who was heading home after two weeks. Charlie won the award for “Best New Camper on the Intermediate Girls ’Line”. The impact she had on the entire cabin was incredible, and we look forward to seeing her next year! Lucy is also leaving us, and we can’t wait to see her next summer as well.

Stayed tuned for week 3!

Lynx Cabin

What a lovely week 2 in Lynx Cabin! This week Olivia and Orchid were welcomed to the cabin, two familiar faces that were excited to jump right in! The girls started off the week by having a spa night in the Yacht Club. They were able to use face masks, paint their nails, and relax with their cabin mates and counselors.

Jada was excited to continue her role as White Team Intermediate Captain, while her team didn’t win, her leadership really shined! Lila had a great time in three different art classes, she took ceramics, pinch pot monsters, and improv. Gabby continues to be a good friend to every girl inside her cabin, and is starting to meet girls in other cabins too! Emmanuelle got to practice her wakeboarding for the second week in a row. Hazel got a chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones. And Calliope did an awesome job competing in Blue/White ultimate frisbee.

Lynx Cabin’s highlights of the week include making up their own versions of ADK’s donut song, playing sponge dodgeball against Hawk Cabin during Line Night, and spending time in cool Lake George.

Stayed tuned for week 3!

Caribou Cabin

Caribou had an awesome time during their second week of the summer! The girls continue to be strong leaders at Camp, both in their activities and on the Girl’s Line!

Ruthie is having such a great first summer, and she was so thankful that she could extend her stay to four weeks! Heidi continues to be an incredible Blue Team Intermediate Captain. She led her team to two wins this week one in flag football, and one in ultimate frisbee! Charlotte continues to be an incredible friend in the cabin, always lending a helping hand when needed. Sarah has been excited about using the plate she made in ceramics for each meal, doing her part to save the planet! Bella was excited to be able to try SUP and canoeing for the second week in a row. Sophia is loving getting to catch up with old friends and is being a strong leader for the newer and younger campers. Katya was trying activities all over the peninsula this week- she was on the land, in the water, and taking arts!

The Caribou girls were excited to win the Intermediate Inspection Banner for the second week in a row, and they are already planning on keeping their cabin super clean for the third. The girls especially loved Line Night. They had a great time playing sponge dodgeball against the boys in Gull Cabin!

Stay tuned for week 3!
