It’s the fourth of July! Happy fourth of July to all our friends and family of Camp Tall Timbers, we hope the day treated you as well as it did everyone here.
To kick off the great day of celebrations most of the campers and counsellors came to breakfast dressed ever so patriotically, it was a sea of red, white and blue wherever you turned. The flag was raised just before breakfast and the National Anthem was sung at breakfast accompanied by a standing ovation. Bill, our ever so friendly Kitchen Supervisor, took to the middle of the floor to deliver a version of ‘Yankee Doodle Dandy’ much to everyone’s entertainment.
The activities were running as usual and lunchtime featured an array of announcements: ‘Bubba Harr for catching 7 fish in Lake Activities’ – the most that anyone has caught this summer so far! ‘Ella Stamera for climbing up the rock wall in 32 seconds’ and ‘Jake Gentin for winning the 500 game in Football’.
Dinner was slightly different today. We had a cook out and everyone sat with their cabins and out outside under the pavilion. It was fun and the food was great: BBQ chicken, hotdogs and burgers with the ever-favourable salad bar.
What followed dinner was a camp baseball game run by Joey from admin and counsellor Casey. The campers were split into two teams with counsellors and they all prepared to play their biggest game of the season at CTT. There was music in the background, 4th of July banners displayed and Phil was narrating the whole game, it was a great atmosphere to be a part of. The final score of the game was 14-6.
After the baseball game Brynn and Jenna arranged a pool party for the whole camp. Everyone was ushered down and we did competitions – best belly flop, biggest splash, best dive, to name a few. We also played water polo which was very enjoyable. Pool parties are always a winner!
To complete the day of celebrations canteen was a camp favourite: milkshakes!
