What’s Been Going on This Week?
This week, the campers have had an exciting time here at Camp Friendship! The most popular activities being kayaking, fishing, and mountain boarding. Everyone seems to be enjoying themselves as they continue through the rest of their activities.
Kayaking, a favorite here this week, was full every day! Sean, the kayaking instructor, created games to play with the campers as they learn to kayak. Racing to collect tennis balls in the lake was a fun game this week! It was entertaining to watch everyone race to collect the balls thrown in different areas throughout the lake!

Another favorite activity this week was fishing! Campers were ecstatic as they caught fish in Friendship Lake. Campers encouraged each other whilst fishing around the lake, and often got just as excited as the ones that caught fish! Fishing instructor, Monica, helped the campers unhook the fish after they were caught, as well as taught campers better ways to fish. The campers also had the option to dig for worms and use those as bait as well! The camper featured below in the photograph used a worm that he dug up as bait and caught a 13 inch Largemouth Bass!

Antony Shinks, featured in a previous blog post, also teaches mountain boarding! The campers love Shinks and his upbeat, fun attitude he brings to every activity. Mountain boarding is one of the campers’ favorite activities here at Camp Friendship, and they definitely enjoyed it this week! Using a board similar to a skateboard, but with bigger, off-road wheels and foot-holders, campers’ skate downhill either sitting down or standing. Shinks also teaches them the best ways to lean to control their steering, and before long the campers got the hang of it!
