Saturday 27th June
We learned the reamainder of the sing songs today as the campers are arriving and we are supposed to know them all, i do not think so.
OOOOO today we went to speciality areas for like the last time and we got our schedules, i have MONDAY OFF yey this is also the day Bridget has off and Tim. Mine might change as they ahve not yet put aqua on my timetable but i have requested to still have mondays off. We have an 8 day week as Mondays and Wednesdays are off days or trip days and the rest of the week is a-f, this is so the campers can ir more activities into their timetables. I also wanted mondays off as wed is our trip days and i wana be the trip counselor for our bunk as get to go out of camp with the kids which should be cool.
I spoke toEden, the waterfront director and i am actually teaching aqua tomorrow morning first period, thanks for letting me plan, nah its ok i can think oon the spot. I teach 3 aqua classes a week and the rest gymnastics.
Bunk prep was next on the days agenda, we had to decorate our bunks with streamers, Jeannine, Robin and Hannah moved into the bunk and hgelped me, then all of us and Liz went to make our work wheel, which if i might say is awesome.
After lunch we went to central area to greet the campers, omg there were 7 buses of kids that came it was manic, we took our campers onto the tennis courts and played games whilst we were waiting for the lice checks.
The campers got their programme cards and then unpacked for 2 hours, girls take forever altho it was a nice time to get to know them.
At dinner we are assigned tables, i am with Boyo, Jon and Ado and some random campers from the 13's age group. Evening activity was sing which the kids loved.
Tonight everyone is on duty but we can sit in the bunk and wait for them to go to sleep.
Sunday 28th June
So today is the first day of normal camp schedule. First period is aqua although they ahve to swim test the whole of the camp first so i helped out with this.
First gymnastics period was awesome, i let Megan take th lead so i could see what she does normally and whether my teaching is any different. We did floor basics in lines, then i took vault and Megan took floor. The hours go by so quickly when im teaching.
3rd period i hvae off today so i went to the staff lounge and chilled, it was nice.
4th period me and Leah were teaching and i took the lead this sesion. We split into groups and went on all 4 pieces with the lower camp girls.
5th period i took off as we didnt need all coaches, we have managed to work it out so that we take it in turns to take off when we only need 2 coaches. 6th period we closed the gym so thast we could go over our schedule. In rest hour 4th period we sat in the bunk with the girls and went over ways we could imprive.
After dinner we had a fire down at the point where we had convention and we ate biscuits, marshmallows and chocolate, YUMMY!.
Me and Liz were on duty tonight so we had to sit on the porch until 1 am. This means thatKatie-Ida and Ado can go out.
Me and Liz wrote all the girls a note and put it on their beds for when they woke up, they loved it.
Monday 29th June
Omg this morning at 6am me and Liz got up and went to the gym, yes i dd just say it we went to the gym. It was actually really fun and i wasnt that tired. We have decided to do it 3 times a week.
I had first period off today aswell as 6th so i was just chillin in the bunk reading.
This evening was convention, where the whole camp met in the playhouse and the nominated people for each topic that were decided last night spoke infrton of the whole camp and said why they should be selected.
Tuesday 30th June
Today is a c day and i have 1s and 3rd off. Aqua was 4th period and the small pool was closed due to low chlorine levels, i just dont seem to be able to get away from pool although i love it. So they thought it would be a good idea for me to take the class in the lake, this didnt work out so good as you couldnt see the bottom that was all different levels so we just sat on the dock and sunbathed. Then 1 period of coaching gym and then me and Susan were back by the pool sunbathing. The weather was lovely today, nice tanning weather.
For evening activity we played dodgeball with the 13's and 14's, this was fun as counselors had to join in. Our age group finished at 9. We then had a staff meeting at 10.15, most of us were told it was in the rec hall but we then found out that it was in the playhouse so we turned up late, woops. This went on till 11.35 which was great news as i was on OD tonight. I sat on the porch for like 5 minutes when Angela came round and said that if my kids are asleep and another counselor isin the bunk i can go to bed, so i did. Good times. Also Angela made veryone cup cakes and they were sooooooooo good!!!!!!
Wednesday 1st July

I was supposed to go to the gym this morning with Liz but woke up and couldnt be bothered so we went back to sleep. I taught all three sessions this morning with Leah as Megan had to go somewhere else. I had 4th period off and spoke to mum, my and grandad which was really nice, had a little cry but fine now. It was good to speak to everyone. Off to the staff lounge with Tim, Bridegt, Nelson and Jrod. Then Tessa and Ryan came in, nice chilled hour off.
5th period me and Megan started to teach when about 25 boys walked in as Eric the athletics director sent all the soccor and lacrosse kids down because it was raining. . So we just played games. 6th period i had off.
Some of us went to the depot tomight which was fun i went with Jrod, Gabe, Laura, Andre and Renae. I was wearing my new dress which i bought from rule 21 in the outlook mall.
Before we went out the counselors had to show the kids our talent show and then we did the camp dances, this was a good evening activity. The 12's counselor talent was awesome, fountains it is soooooooooooo funny!!!!!!!!!!
