Today we did initiatives. This means that we did a bunch of teamwork exercises. We all had to listen to each others ideas, and this allowed us to fit into a couple of tight places, as well as get ourselves untangled. We swung onto a platform using a knotted rope, and then crowded onto even smaller platforms, and we couldn’t touch the ground for either of those. After that, we made a human knot, which is when a bunch of people grab each other’s hands, and you have to get untangled. I believe that these activities helped us work on teamwork as well as general bonding.

Today we did initiatives. They were really fun. For the first one we did the rope thing. We had to swing on a rope from a line over to a small square thing. We had a lot of people so at first it seemed impossible but after we tried hard we made it. I was the last one to go and I felt like if I fell I would let the whole group down. But I made it and I felt a sense of accomplishment. My cabin is great and so was the breakfast. We had pancakes this morning and they were delish! I LOVE Kohahna!

At camp we have a tradition where we dip every morning. I have done this for five years and have never had a morning like this. I jumped out of bed (usually I kind of push myself out) and got into my swimming suit. I was one of the first people ready! Then the bell rang and I started fast walking down to the beach and saw the first glimpse of Lake Michigan. I started to slowly walk in and…it was warmish! That was amazing! Anyway, that’s my first dip in Lake Michigan!

This morning I had a pancake, 3 sausages and some cheesy hash browns. (Yum!) I love camp sausage! I like lots of other sausage, but camp sausage is the bomb! I also love camp pancakes with powdered sugar. This morning I also had cheesy hash browns. I normally like plain hash browns, but I think I like cheesy better. I wonder what we’re having for breakfast tomorrow!
