Tuesday Starts With Polar Bear Swim

A couple of years ago, we started what has become a tradition: the polar bear swim. Kids can choose to be awakened early and go to the pool for a quick dip. In the past couple of years, it's been so hot that the swim was warm, not chilly, as hoped. 

Well...2016 was different! It was cool this morning, and campers had fun guessing how many "bags of ice" we added to the pool after they went to sleep last night. That rumor was one we just chose not to dispel. :) 

As the sun came up, our campers jumped in. Check out our Facebook page for a video.

Preparing to tie dye. Zip ties work so much better than rubber bands!
