That time of year where there is only ONE WEEK LEFT in our Early-Bird Registration!
Yes, that time of year where the Early-Bird Deadline is next Wednesday, March 15th, and is very quickly approaching!
That time of year where we are close to filling up several sessions of Camp, so you should register NOW to ensure your camper a bunk for 2017!
That time of year, where we get SO EXCITED for Camp (as you can tell by our relatively free use of exclamation marks and capital letters), that we can't wait any longer, we need a taste of summer not later, but right now.
So, here at Camp we throw on our Summer Camp gear, and get out to find a summer activity to partake in immediately.
|The waterfront seems like a good spot to find a Summer Camp activitiy, right T-Nivi?|
|Oh relax, Tyler! (T-Nivi.) I told you we weren't going swimming.|
|Swimming would be TOO crazy.|
|A nice ride in a canoe though?|
|That seems just the right amount of crazy.|
|Wish us luck, Woodrow. We'll need it.|
|Cause it is like 40 degrees out.|
|Get the canoe.|
|Congrats! Success on Step One.|
|Realize there is still a good amount of ice around the edge of the lake.|
|Which makes us briefly reconsider this plan and remember...|
|We need life jackets, after all.|
|And worry not...T-Nivi is a certified life guard.|
|Now we're ready to set sail!|
|If you can "sail" on ice, that is.|
|I wouldn't step there, Tyler.|
|Tyler is distressed. I'm laughing. This is business as usual.|
|Away we go!|
|I said. Away. We. Go.|
|In the Antarctic they have specially designed ice breaker boats.|
|This is not a specially designed Antarctic ice breaker boat.|
|Cause we almost never run into this problem in the summer time.|
|But, we break through the ice regardless!|
|And make it to open, warm water!|
|Water that is warm enough to at least be liquid, any way.|
|Here it is! The late-winter summer activity we looking for!|
|Yes, the perfect way to mark the occasion that...|
|(Hold on, what was the occasion? I know we came out here for some reason.)|
|Oh right, to mark the occasion that there is only one week before our EARLY-BIRD DEADLINE.|
|All right, Woodrow, calm down. The madness is over.|
|The occasion has been marked. We're coming back in.|
|But as we paddle back, we'll remind you:|
|If you're still waiting to sign up for Summer 2017, do so now!|
|(The Welcoming Party awaits our return to shore.)|
|And if you'd like to join our LANTERN FAMILY by sending us some of your friends, have them register for Early-Bird as well! It's open to returning and brand new campers.|
|For any loyal blog readers who are still reading this post in hopes that'd we eventually wind up in the lake...|
|Sorry to disappoint! |
No flipping or staged T-rescues this time. Cause while we are crazy...
|We're not that crazy.|
|Not in March, anyway.|
|But while we won't going swimming in the ice, we will make a nice metaphor out of it for you:|
|Y'see, our canoe trip on this March morning has served to help break up the ice on the outskirts of Lake Shawanni...|
|...Leaving in its wake, a clear path toward summer.|
Special thanks to our Camp Secretary, Heather, for serving as photographer!
Get that Early-Bird discount while it's hot!
Whichever seems appropriate.
|(See, T-Nivi! I told you it'd be fun.)|
