As the week here comes to a close we have lots of fun memories to look back upon. Yesterday was the wackiest day of all! On Thursday we decided to shake up the schedule and the meals. For breakfast we had some tasty ravioli and for dinner we had scrumptious breakfast sandwiches. Instead of having our Discovery Groups in the afternoon we had them in the early evening. It was a fun way to be able to experience dusk in a new way including some outdoor cooking, night hikes and dusk paddles. With the afternoon free, we were able to play an awesome camp-wide game of Nature’s Wrath, a favorite for both campers and staff alike.
This afternoon we are excited for the return of not one but two of our treks. Bike and Beach Trek will be returning after spending the week on the Cape and Nantucket, and High Points will be returning from their two-week trek as they climbed the highest points in New England.

Session 2 is getting off to an awesome start! The weather has been beautiful.
The session began with a fun evening activity where the units could all work together. Then right after breakfast on Monday, the campers began their Nature Groups (NGs). NGs are the activities that the campers participate in each morning with their units. The themes for our NGs are Earth Day, Forest Exploration, Aquatic Ecology, Nature Play, and Things with Wings.
After lunch, all the campers took their swim checks, went on a camp tour and did some fun icebreaker games. Yesterday was action-packed, with campers beginning their day with NGs in the morning and Discovery Groups and OATs in the afternoon. They ended their day with Unit Night and s’mores.

Greetings from Wildwood. Though very warm we are having lots of fun here in Rindge! We are filling our days with lots of sunscreen, water, and smiles.
Tonight was “Bring a Letter to Dinner” night, so you should be seeing some mail from your camper in the next couple of days. It is also Unit Night. The campers are all over camp having fun with their units. The younger campers are out on the waterfront having a beach night and the older campers are hiking to First Point and swimming from the beach at that campsite. Everyone will end their night with tasty s’mores.
Over the weekend, 2-week campers were able to go on overnights with their units. LIT embarks on a trip to Mount Greylock today. With a wonderful group of Leaders-in-Training and four terrific Junior Counselors, we’re getting some great support all around camp, including our discovery groups, open activity times, and evening programs.
Some of the favorite camp activities this week have been Scottish Dancing, Stock Market, and Hubbard Gladiators. In Scottish dancing, some of our international staff were able to teach some dances from their home counties. In Hubbard Pond Gladiators, campers were able to search for the biggest and scariest aquatic insect they could find in the ponding area.
Tomorrow we are excited to celebrate the 4th of July with the camp community. We have Nature Groups in the morning and field and water games in the afternoon. I know the campers will love sharing the holiday with our international staff.
We’ll be sure to post pictures of 4th of July and much more in the weeks to come!
