Wow! We had such a beautiful day here at camp today. The weather was warm and all the boating and swim classes had fun cooling off in the lake! I even took a dip when no one was looking! The mountaineering class took to the high ropes today after lunch, it looked like such fun!

Today was another beautiful day here at Camp Merrie-Woode. This morning, Bum’s Rest pulled a hilarious prank in the dining hall when they stole the director’s table and had a Blackout Rave Dance Party during breakfast. What a fun way to start the day! The Photography Class has
