Friday was our last day off here at Camp Chinqueka and we woke up to a really hard rainfall. Normally we like to do outdoor things on days off, but due to a forecast of rain all day, we had to stay indoors. The Connecticut Science Center in Hartford was recommended to us, so we decided to check it out.
It turned out to be a really cool science center. They had a ton of technological exhibits to look at. Sophie and Sawyer are still a bit too young to really appreciate everything they have to offer. They are more into pressing buttons than anything else. But they still had a great time exploring the museum.
Today is a big day for Sophia. Up until this point, she has been going to Eagle Rock Day Camp and then living with us in the Health Center at Camp Chinqueka. Starting today, she is going to officially be a Chinqueka camper. She is going to move in with cabin 1 for the last week of camp.
Normally you have to be at least six years old to attend camp. Sophie is only four, so she is still pretty young. However, she knows all of the counselors pretty well. Plus she has been following cabin one off and on all summer, so we figure she could handle it. It will be interesting to see how she does sleeping in a cabin away from us and eating all of her meals away from us. I’m guessing she will love it!
It’s hard to believe we are down to our last week of camp. One week from now all of the campers will be gone and us counselors will be ready to say our goodbyes. It should be a really fun week though, because lots of cool events happen the last week of camp.
