Arrowhead games triathlon 2013

Yesterday afternoon campers and staff participated in a triathlon in order to gain points for the Arrowhead Games. It was quite the race, starting off with swimming then biking down fright night road and ending off with a long distance run around the field. The campers were divided into 6 teams for the Arrowhead Games that they will be on year after year. Each team chose a junior, intermediate and senior camper to run the triathlon as well as a staff member. The race was close in all the categories and in the end there were 4 winners. 

Ella from the "Ronville Raiders" in the Junior category, Jared from the "Ronville Raiders" in the intermediate category, Aiden from the "Ronville Raiders" in the Senior camper category and Daniel from the "Foxpoint Vixens" for the staff race. Congratulations to the participants of this year’s triathlon!

Look below for pictures of the event!

Second Session updates!

Second session is flying by and camp is in great spirits! The campers have been extremely involved in the "Arrowhead Games" where they have been rallied against each other in order to see which team can rack up the most points throughout the session. The activities that can be counted towards the "AG" can be anything from volleyball at rest hour to a game of Rocks during minor program. The campers have also been training throughout the week for the Triathlon on Thursday at rest hour. 

On the weekend All Day Program was a blast with a Harry Potter theme. The camp was divided into two teams, which were “Slytherin” and “Gryffindor”. In the end Slytherin came out as the winners of the day but all the campers had a great time regardless.

Some of the campers have been working extremely hard to put on a production of “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” for Arrowhead Theatre. They have been working on painting the sets, setting up the lighting and memorizing lines for a week. The production will be taking place Thursday night for Minor and Major program. Updates will be posted on the Facebook and Website.

Take a look at the pictures of the session so far below!

Arrowhead Idol 2013

During session 1B the some campers participated in "Arrowhead Idol". The theme was "Arrowhead Factor" and many celebrities made an appearance such as Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, One Direction and Ed Sheeran. The night was started off with 10 contestants showing off their skills to the camp. We had Kathryn from Fantasia sing "I knew you were trouble", Sienna and Emily also performed "Call me maybe" along with Adam from the Swamp who sung "Dream a little dream". Next up we had Alex and Milena who did a fantastic gymnastics routine, Harrison with a Karate stick routine and Natasha from Clovelly sung a great broadway tune. Claire did a little dance to Katy Perry's "Firework" and Miles from the cave did an awesome breakdance routine followed by a hilarious stand up routine performed by Matt from The Bay. Finally Klaudia from Oasis did a lovely rendition of "I do wanna love you". The campers then voted and the top 3 were put through to the next round.

After the final 3 performances (Klaudia, Harrison and Alex & Milena) the campers voted again and the winner was...

Drum roll...

Session 1B Update!

It is hard to believe that it’s already half way through session 1B. The days seem to just be flying by as the weather has returned to being sunny and hot after a little rain, and the water is refreshing as ever. The campers have been enjoying activities both on the waterfront and land and many are going for levels. Some highlights of the session so far were the casino night with “horse” races, several cabin campfires, a great game of power ball and a crazy thunderstorm. Just yesterday a few celebrity guests made an appearance at camp and held auditions for "Arrowhead Idol" where campers can show off their talents. Check back tomorrow to see who wins!

Here are some pictures of the session 1B activities!

The Greatest Warrior All Day Program

Yesterday was an exciting day when the entire camp participated in the “ Greatest Warrior ” themed All Day Program. It was a fun filled day where the campers, LIT’s and staff were divided into 4 teams consisting of boxing, wrestling, WWE and sumo wrestling. Throughout the day they competed against each other in a series of fun teambuilding exercises and various games. The main highlights of the day were the team cheer-offs, a fantastic obstacle race through the forest and a final battle to see who would be crowned “The Greatest Warrior”. Some campers were even fully painted head-to-toe to represent their team in full camp spirit! In the end Sumo Wrestling came out on top and were victorious. 

Scroll down for some pictures of the day!

1st Session 2013 Update

Camp is well underway with only one more day until we say goodbye to our 1A campers. The weather has been fabulous and smiles can be seen everywhere on camp property. Our new choice activity program has been a great success with many campers participating in yoga, running, guitar lessons, comic book making and some cool new board games. The addition of the fitness program has brought excitement to those campers who love to get their fitness fix. Energy is high after Thursday night’s "Broadway Airband" night where all cabins performed a dance on stage. The performances were so good that the staff couldn’t choose a winner! Anticipation is building for tomorrow’s “All Day Program”. Check back here tomorrow for the big reveal of the theme and some pictures of the day!
