Happy Halloween

Camp Director

On Saturday, campers participated in an all-day Blue and White competition we call Big Games. Campers traveled around in different Blue and White team groups and competed in swimming relays, dodge-ball, kayak relays, kickball, ultimate frisbee. red girl relay, basketball knockout, Newcomb, tramp-ball and gaga-ball. Big games has always been a favorite among campers. The spirit of Blue and White is heard everywhere in camp during any Blue and White game. You will find team cheers, sportsmanship and teamwork present from start to finish no matter what game we are playing. 

Sunday was a gorgeous day at Agawak. Campers enjoyed homemade lazy breakfast pancakes, participated in specialized clinics, signed up for a week of new activities, went tubing, swam in Blue lake, and dressed up in costumes for our annual Halloween celebration. Halloween the one evening of the summer where candy and treats run rampant. We fired up the orange Agawak fire truck and campers climbed on board for rides. Campers hopped on the new hay-wagon and listened to a ghostly short story. Junior counselors created and organized a some-what scary haunted house. CIT's (counselors in-training) took turns in the cold dunk tank and numerous Halloween games were scattered across the tennis courts. The popcorn machine was working overtime and long lines were seen at the Halloween sugar cookie decorating station. 

We're about to start the third week of camp with a full day of activities. It’s incredible to watch campers and staff – new and returning – from all over the country and the world reunite with old friends and make new friends. It’s also great to watch our first time campers – slightly nervous at first – realize they now have a positive and nurturing place they can call their second home.
