There has also been a lot of camp "bonding" going on the past several weeks which is always great to see. It's not just the kids in camp that are making and maintaining friendships as we hear lot's of the adults talking to each other wanting to make sure that they are rebooking for the same week next year. Obviously the kind of talk we love to hear, and also great for the adults who look forward to renewing their camp friendships again next year. Tom Cellantani from Michigan and Dave Getsfried are two great examples as each of them brought their kids (Tom's son Anthony-11 and Dave's daughter Katrina-7) and had the opportunity to fish with the kids throughout the week and with each other when the kids preferred to hang in camp with the other kids. A joint outing to Lost Lake was certainly a highlight for the four of them, as it was a great day of adventure for all, and adding 60-70 walleyes for the day doesn't hurt when you are trying to keep the kids interested in fishing!
