Great start to camp!
Thank you to all of our families who dropped off their campers on opening day. Our start at Camp Timanous this summer was as smooth as the wind rustling through the pines. The car procession kept moving throughout the day and the campers passed through their own health checkpoints to reach their awaiting counselors in their new cabin. Some families might have felt the familiar feeling of saying goodbye to their child and maybe others felt it for the first time this year. As the sun set on the first day at camp, the campers settled into their freshly made beds and listened to the loons call across the lake.
Campers are now settling into the camp culture our counselors have cultivated in each of the cabins and at each of the activities. They are reconnecting with their friends from previous years and finding new friends in their cabins and around camp. Campers went through an orientation Friday as they toured the major camp activities and learned a bit about each. As the orientation sessions finish up in the next day or so, each camper will have all the skills to try any new activity from archery to sailing. Even though it was only the first full day of camp, Fridays at Timanous are known for Friday candy and soda, a once a week treat, and even though it was only the first full day of camp, tradition is tradition. All boys also enjoyed a swim. Panther Pond is the perfect temperature for a morning dip or a playful jump into the water from the tower at Main Dock. We wrapped up the day with “free evening” activities, a camp favorite with choices ranging from tennis, baseball, soccer, canoeing & boating, chess, Ultimate Disc, volleyball, and soccer. It was a great first day!
We expect this year’s batch of boys to leave the summer with well-honed skills, new friends, and unforgettable memories, and we are just seeing the beginning of it in these first days of camp.
