Kids Rule-the week of July 2nd at Peffley's Camp

What an awesome week in camp it was for everyone this past week. Ten of our guests were kids ranging in age from 6-17 years old. Include our daughters and we had a whopping 14 kids in camp this week! (most likely a new camp record)  Also, my apologies in advance to the teenagers for referring to them as "kids".

Although the grownups had quite a bit of fun during the week, it was the youngsters that made camp a special place to enjoy the simple life. Late night fires, smores, games of tag and ghost in the graveyard kept the nights fun and exciting, while swimming, playing catch and fishing from the docks during the day helped occupy their interests when not in a boat. Many new friendships were made during the week and it was great to be reminded by the youngsters just how easy it can be to make a new friend in camp.

Five of the more adventurous girls (along with some supervision from myself and another father) piloted two rafts and paddled their way from camp out to the island for an exploration mission. It was fun walking the island with them and seeing their excitement over finding some of nature's trinkets and just another reminder that there really is a lot more to do here than just fish.

Ready, set.....

Special friendships, summer memories, and new adventures. There really is more to a Canadian "fishing" trip after all.....
