Good tidings, friends—
I feel like we’re stuck in a Groundhog Day Scenario this week at camp. We wake up, it’s raining. We go to activities, it’s raining. The rain briefly stops, the sun begins to shine, everyone gets excited only to have our hopes dashed by, you guessed it, more rain. In fairness to the rain, the grass has never been greener, but we’d love a bit of extended sunshine. The campers have been amazing throughout this rainy 2nd session. Activities are loud and lively full of leisure and laughter.
The camp day started bright and early here at Island Lake. The annual Teen Trip left at 6:30am. Our sleepy-eyed crew of teens, counselors, and Wendy set off for snowy Toronto* where they will enjoy four days of fun in the cozy embrace of our friendly neighbor to the North.
* EDITORS NOTE: I checked the weather, it is in fact not snowy at all, but when I think of Canada I think of snow and now hopefully you will too.
Stop one for the Teen Trip is Canada’s Wonderland. A 330-acre theme park located in a suburb of Toronto. Fun fact: It was the first major theme park in Canada and to this day remains the country’s largest. Canada’s Wonderland ranks third in the world by number of roller coasters and boasts a water park named Splash Works. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that some kind soul brings a souvenir home for me.
Not to be outdone, we will be taking the rest of the campers to Dorney Park tomorrow for Lazy Day. There is a palpable sense of excitement in the air as the campers’ countdown the hours to Dorney. However, before we can all enjoy a day of rollercoasters and merriment, we have an Evening Activity and Canteen to attend. Tonight we are flip-flopping the normal routine. Canteen will be first and the Evening Activity will be second. Why? Great question, Reader. Tonight’s Evening Activity is a Movie Night and you can’t have an authentic Movie Night without snacks, thus, Canteen before Evening Activity.
I was informed by my esteemed predecessor that there is an active riddle community here on the blog and I must satiate your rabid desire for riddles by providing the solution to yesterday’s riddle:
I am a kind of coat that can only be put on when wet. What am I? A coat of paint *mind exploding gif*.
Try this one on for size: I have keys but no locks. I have a space but no room. You can enter, but can’t go outside. What am I? Stay tuned and ILCUTHERE!
