The main purpose of the swim test is twofold:  To determine what instruction the camper needs, if any, and to pass a series of distance swims to become eligible to use the camp boats.

Most fun, is the activity fair.  That’s where the new campers learn their choices of daily class periods.  Full-season campers assisted counselors in presenting the 25+ options.  All campers signed up for classes, which begin tomorrow for the girls, Thursday for the boys. “I’m sticking mostly with the ones from last year,” said Henry, “although I signed up for Native American lore, because it sounds cool.”
