Hello there, faithful readers!
Yesterday at Timbercrest was quite a day! We lucked out and other than the 5 a.m. thunderstorm, we were rain free. The clouds looked quite ominous at one point, but we didn’t have to cancel a thing. Sprucewood and Jackman’s Lodge had their cookouts last night so they didn’t have to worry about starting their fires. Sprucewood had hot dogs and hamburgers as their “appetizer” but then made macaroni & cheese in a dutch oven for the “main course.” They then made “smacos,” which is a twist on the traditional s’more, made with a flour tortilla, marshmallows, chocolate, and other things like pie filling. Then they’re made in pie irons. So delicious! Jackman’s made “spider dogs” which is a regular hot dog with the ends cut so they curl up when cooked over a fire. So fun!
Strawberry Hill were the only campers present for dinner and campers’ choice, so they had a major dance/dress-up party in the dining hall. There are pictures of that on our Flickr page.
Today our girls that signed up for 2-hour add-on horseback riding are finishing up at the barn. The Sprucewood girls went on the water toy right after breakfast before heading to the trading post and doing drama with their international counselor “Weasy.” Jackman’s is taking showers this morning and cleaning up from last night and will be doing some fun games before lunch. Our horseback riding girls in Strawberry Hill & Sprucewood will spend more time at the barn today as well. Tonight will be our final campfire for session 4. Hopefully it will be outside, but there are definitely thunderstorms on the way for the Southern Tier. Rain, rain, go away!
Have a most excellent day,
