Photos from Camp

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:

Oakley Swimming

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 at Overnight 2

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.

Aspen Team Building

  • Aspen competed in the war canoe race for the Amazons and beat the Valkyries
  • Aspen getting a speaking part in the camp musical
  • Aspen and Oakley trotting in horseback riding
