What do Aspen and Oakley do at camp for 2 weeks? The girls take swimming, canoeing, diving, tennis, horseback riding, arts and crafts, games, nature, (climbing) wall, archery, and glee club. Camp Nakanawa is excellent about updating their website with pictures. Here are some of my favorites from the last 2 weeks:
Oak rocking the mandatory white swim cap. It’s old-school cool and enables the counselors to quickly spot the girls in the lake.
Aspen with her bunkies and counselor from cabin 23 (she’s the 2nd from the left)
Oakley with her bunkies and counselors from cabin 5 (she’s in the middle, sporting braids)
Oakley wearing the headband that she sewed in Arts and Crafts
Aspen in her headband and red Amazon sash
The Climbing Wall and Zip Line in Senior Camp – a privilege reserved for the 5th graders, the oldest girls in Junior Camp (meaning Aspen got to do it!)
Aspen zipping over Lake Aloaloa
Oakley with her bunkies at the bluff of Cumberland Cove
Oakley and McKenna, whom she met last year and is with again this year – much to her delight
Oakley on the prowl
Aspen laughing. Priceless.
Aspen at the Overnight with Lucia, Kate, and Ramsay. They gathered down by the waterfront to swim, canoe, sing, dance, and eat hamburgers. Then they roasted marshmallows for s’mores and got into their sleeping bags to sleep under the stars. They slept late the next morning and had the ever-popular pancake breakfast, complete with bacon and hot chocolate.
