You know it’s been a big day when all 45 campers and half the staff are lying still on their backs after yoga, totally quiet and completely relaxed. It’s always a great way to end the day, reflecting on everything we just accomplished.
Our day started early with the 7:00AM run and stretch. It was a gorgeous morning and fun to see the various groups head out into the dewy grass in all directions. After a huge breakfast of eggs, pancakes, bagels, fruit and cereal, half the camp went into the woods to climb trees in the Ropes Course, while the other half went to the hill for the killer leg routine and eagerly anticipated agility course.
Some standout moments today:
-Meaghan putting together a flawless and fast run on the agility course where perfection is rewarded over quickness.
-Emily, a rookie to ELITEAM, staring nervously down the gates on her first ever run down the quick-feet slalom. Within three runs she was going full throttle.
-Will R calmly shooting a basketball over his back while balancing on a beam and swooshing nothing but net.
– Hearing a camper yell, “It burns so good!” during the killer leg routine.
-Conor, Emma, Sarah, Jack S and Coach Kelley all having to kiss the belay rope and thank it for saving their lives, as penance for stepping on the rope by the Dangle Duo.
-Watching Victoria try mightily to stand atop the Swinging Log. Although she didn’t quite get there, she won over the entire group with her gallant effort.
-Parker and Scott hanging upside down, trying desperately to get a hold of Nicole to hoist her up and over the Wall.
After a refreshing swim and feeding frenzy at Taco Tuesday dinner, the first rotation of Rock Wall, Cooking and Capture the Flag began. The “Eliteam chefs” made Greek Yogurt Banana Bread that we’ll all enjoy tomorrow during the bike.
