Clinic Sign-ups! The whole camp gathered in front of the Rec Hall, eager to watch the exciting show. Counselors performed skits called “commercials”, advertising what they’ll be offering during the Clinic Period in the days ahead. After everyone presented, each camper independently chose what he’d like to do for an hour each day through this coming week.
First up was '3 v 3' Hockey, presented by a group of former campers who are now counselors. Next was Boating & Bracelets, where Diane and Mary Beth of Chilltop fame join forces down at Trickey with the boating counselors -- you get to make bracelets on the beach, and take out a kayak, canoe or sailboat too.
Ted then took the stage with his signature raspy “aaaaaaah” (that the kids just love to repeat back), presenting his High School Tennis Clinic, geared towards those who want to make the tennis team at school.
Shep’s Great Adventure Clinic is a backlot tour of Skylemar. You get to see all the places that the campers usually don’t get to go, like the Maintenance Department and the Kitchen (and the ice cream freezer).
Positional Skill Building for Lacrosse -- you'll learn to be a better attackman, goalie or defenseman (includes full-pads scrimmaging too).
Known for their outstanding commercials, The Ski Dawgs again did not disappoint. You’ll progress from boom to short rope to long rope to slalom in no time with these expert waterskiing instructors.
Our favorite golf pro, Steve, offered his Straight & Far Golf Clinic. You get the opportunity to work towards earning the Gold Golf Club ... and if you work harder than ever, you might have potential for the Green Jacket Award.
Fantasy Football includes mock drafts and lots of discussion. Shoot & Dribble Basketball offers a welcome opportunity for all to hone your hoop skills (divided up by age on the courts).
Bishballerstine Monster Baseball was the funniest commercial of the day, and offers extra work on fielding, hitting for contact, hitting for power, throwing and baserunning.
Gamble offered Advanced Strength and Conditioning for our oldest campers. The Giant Swing down on the Challenge Course was inviting for all ages.
Milly Rock Archery gives you the opportunity to work on the Golden Bow Award. Sid & Sam’s Survival Skills Clinic covers shelter building, fire making, hiking and more.
Last but not least was Indigenous Cultures and Cuisines at the SkyDeck. Wow! How do you pick?
Wild Game Hunt for Evening Activity. That’s when the counselors hide, and the campers seek. It’s a favorite night for the kids, and a stressful one for their camp director. Counselors seem to climb higher and higher into the trees every year. All down safe and sound...though some never found!
