After skiing we went back to the houses and packed up most of our stuff before heading to Wildwood Park one last time for games and grilling. There was also a raffle, and "paper plate awards" were given out to each camper, made by their peers.
As always, the kids have their relentless energy, and with the end of the camp drawling near there seems to be the usual underlying sadness of the realization that this unique experience in their lives is coming to an end. But friends made, may turn out to be bonds that will last for a lifetime.

Games today consisted of speed ball, with core and agility ladder worked in between games. After games we jumped into a very chilly, extremely refreshing river. It felt good now that we are finally getting some HOT weather.
Tomorrow we work back into slalom with drill courses. Only two more days left, and we look forward to making them count!

This afternoon we went to Wildwood Park again and the kids played games while we grilled up some burgers and hot dogs.
Only three days left on snow over here. We are certainly going to make the most of it, especially with warm weather and sun coming our way!
Until next time...

The plan now is to go four days straight of skiing. And the forecast looks sunny and beautiful! The skiing tomorrow should be fantastic.
Today we hiked to an amazing waterfall set in a verdant valley, which the kids could hike behind. After the hike we stopped in Government Camp for lunch, and then played games of knock out, soccer, and kick ball for most of the afternoon.
We had dinner as a group at one of the houses followed up by a lesson on skiing tactics with Q&A. Once that was finished a tuning clinic was held that I think all the kids benefited from.
All and all, a very busy day, and with plenty of pictures to prove it! Check it out.
