We are in recovery mode from a tiring but thoroughly satisfying week of camp here at Huronia Museum. The only blight on an otherwise great week was the fact that the weather was so beautiful and warm and the snow melted. Yes, it is true. I was just about the only person in the province, perhaps the whole country excluding whistler, who wanted the snow to fall. Why? We usually toboggan with our camp kids. There is a great hill right next to the Museum and the kids always have fun tobogganing.
Aside from that we had a great time. We skated everyday. I think skate tying should be an Olympic sport because I would win a gold medal. Figure skates, hockey skates or the ones with the buckles, I can tie them all.
We also did crafts and played games. We made oragami frogs. WE had an egg hunt. Exploring the museum became one of the most asked for free time activities of the entire week. We even found a fun activity to replace tobogganing. Every day of camp ended with multiple games of hide and seek in the village. I would have to say that it was a very successful week. We had a number of return campers joined us, but we also made quite a few new friends who I hope will be joining us this summer and in years to come.
Now that March Break is finished and the craft supplies are put away it is time to start putting together plans for our Summer Jam Day Camp. So stay tuned for more information on that and the many other activities here in the Pod.
