A Typical Day
Woke to the sound of staff dressed in costumes singing silly songs that bring us to morning stretches. Rolling our eyes, we drag ourselves to the front lawn and start twisting our bodies into pathetic pretzels. No one really cares too much about this, we are just together and feeling excited for the day.
We load our boats for a morning of whitewater training. They get us to learn to float in the rapids before canoeing in them. This is insane. But go figure, it worked. 7 boats tipped and we were all pretty laid back rushing down the river.
The sun is intense today and we head for shade. Wolfing down egg and tuna sandwiches, we tell each other stories and make thunder box runs. We use each other’s backs as seat-rests and talk about nothing important really.
Some of us choose fishing – a teacher is showing us how to clean them – others make crafts and giggle all afternoon. We come together at 5:00pm for a group sauna.
Fajitas, and more fajitas.
We were given the chance to do a casino night, as long as we organized everything. They mark us on this. Crazy, I know. Before bed, we de-brief the day and look for shooting stars.
