First time at camp

During our vacation, Peter went just up the river to Caton's Island Camp and went to his very first overnight camp all by himself. He was really looking forward to this and was so excited. The camp was a large one and so Robin volunteered to help with parking, luggage and traffic duties. Needless to say, Gaelle was along for the ride.

Josh spent many summers working on the island as a counsellor and various other positions and so Sunday found him helping to register the kids for camp. This was his last day of vacation and I think he enjoyed getting back into the camping spirit.

On Tuesday Robin and I just had to go to the island to check on Peter. We knew he would be doing great, but it was just a bit of reassurance and home. We found him doing crafts. Not much of a surprise there.

We got a picture of him waiting for lunch. Not much of a surprise there either. We thought he might not get enough to eat, but he seems to have been well fed.

Cousin Danny was also working on the island. So, when it was time to pick up Peter, Gaelle was thrilled to run into her.

Here's Peter with his counsellors, Scott and Brecken. 

One of the fun things about this camp is the fact that it is on an island. You have to take a boat there which just adds to the experience for the kids. 

We knew Peter would be exhausted and sure enough he laid down on the hammock at 6:30 and stayed asleep until 8:30 the next morning when he was still a little groggy and slow. But he had a wonderful time and is looking forward to next summer.
