A Day in the Manitou Life – July 31st

Let’s make a deal, intercamp tryouts, Halloween, canoe trips, an inline hockey tourney, a triathlon, quidditch by the lake, MHL hockey action, camp wide dance….That’s how we ended the month of July yesterday. All that and so much more!!  It was an epic day topped off with Chef William’s annual Steak-Frites dinner complete with homemade pumpkin pie for dessert!  The trick or treaters were in full swing and enjoyed hay rides, the always crazy Haunted House and our newest tradition, ‘Trunk or Treat’, where campers got to choose their prizes from the trunks of staff cars!  So much fun was had by all as we finished with our camp wide dance set against the backdrop of a magnificent Manitou sky. The temperature as just right and the campers’ spirits even warmer.  Hard to believe it’s already August, but we have so much more to get excited about in the coming weeks.

The lake is a perfect temperature and so many kids are excited about tomorrow morning’s ‘polar bear’ swim at 6:30am. What a great way to start the day!
