Today was another wonderful Sunday here at Merri-Mac. After sleeping in an extra hour the girls put on their Sunday whites and hurried now for a breakfast of Cinnamon Rolls. Chapel today was given by the entire cabin of Big Dipper. They spoke about the time Jesus blessed all the children at the gathering. the key verse was Matthew 19:14 “Jesus said”Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.””

A water-skiing trip went out this morning to Lake James. The girls on this trip were able to practice water-skiing, wake-boarding, and knee-boarding. Mary Emma W. had a fantastic time and was able to stay up on the skis the entire time. Half way through the morning the sun came out causing each wave and ripple to sparkle.

Lunch today had the entire camp very happy. Fried chicken, green beans and dinner rolls were what was on the menu.  Once lunch was over the camp picture was taken. With all the staff in blue polos and all the campers in white ,the picture looked incredible. After a hour of rest time all the young ladies bolted down to Trading Post to procure their favorite snacks. Soon after the girls ran off to get their swim suits and headed to Lake Doris. All of camp especially enjoys free swim. The girls were able to use the “Blob”, diving boards, and the water-slide. Some of the younger girls went critter-catching on the banks with the direction of the older girls. Many activities were opened today so the young ladies could work on bars. One of which was archery. Olivia Faith D. was able to complete her bronze in this activity.

For dinner tonight all of Merri-Mac enjoyed a cook-out, complete with hot-dogs, hamburger, watermelon, and potato salad. Tonight for evening activity the girls will be Vespers, which is a long standing camp tradition. It includes funny skits, music and a message from the Bible. Later on in the evening our oldest cabin, Dreams Begin/End and SunnySide, will be having their annual Sunny/Dreams prom. All the girls in these cabins are dressed up from different decades including the 1960’s, 1970’s, 1980’s and 1690’s. It will be quite the evening.
