Today was the new boys’ first full day at Camp Pasquaney. During morning activities, those new boys got an overview of the waterfront, with a rotation introducing them to canoeing, sailing, and swimming. At swimming, new boys were given an opportunity to swim to or from the diving raft, the first step in the swim tests. In afternoon activities, another rotation introduced them to the nature center, wood shop, and Watson Theater, giving them an opportunity to audition for one of the plays this summer. Following afternoon activities was the first inspection and Chapel of the summer. Luckily (at least for my dorm) we were later informed that this inspection was a warm-up run and would not count toward the overall inspection cup. In chapel, Mr. Vinnie gave an inspiring talk about the power of having a growth mindset. We then closed the day with dinner, mines, prayers, and circles. All in all, it was a great (and sunny) day.
