Happy July 4th!

Today began with an hour late wake-up after the trip to the Sea Dogs game the night before. After having waffles and sausages for breakfast and cleaning up the dorms, campers went to their majors up until lunch and then back to their dorms for rest hour.

In the afternoon, we had a bit of a modified schedule due to the hot weather. There were 4 different stations that the campers cycled through until dinner time. The waterfront was one as well as the humanities center for a movie, the hockey rink for free skate, and watching the U16 soccer game against Wigwam. Each age group was able to participate in every activity.

After dinner, we had another night of BSL! All the campers competed with their teams in games from handball to newcomb to kickball to gaga. The playoffs are right around the corner as we approach casino night and the start of color war as well!
