The SHADs woke up bright and early this morning in order to catch the bus at 5:45. Though this was a hard task, the SHADs still managed to catch some zzz on the bus.
After a few hours on the bus we finally reached our first destination, Cape Split Provincial Park.
We got Pita Pit wraps, granola bars and juice to save for lunch later on in the day and then we self-sorted into four different categories of hike:
Slow (affectionately known as “Slug Gang”)
On the way to the peak of Cape Split, we all made an effort to walk with someone we wanted to get to know better.
Though it was a long and adventurous hike, the laughs, the food, and the view made it all worth it.
After hiking back –talking with someone new on the way– we got back on the bus and left for camp! When we go to the site, we were given a few instructions and then sent on our way to find our cabins!
After settling into our cabins of about 10 each, we had time to go swimming in the lake, and have the second annual SHAD water relay, where teams of four competed by running back and forth in the water.
After swimming, we had a dinner of chicken tenders, white rice and peas. Then, we had some free time to explore the various activities available at Sherbrooke Lake Camp. Some of us played tetherball, others went on the swings, but we all had fun!
To end the day, we decided to do it in the most traditional camp way possible, a campfire. After a couple of hours of campfire songs and having a blast, the SHADs were ready to fall asleep. We stargazed with commentary from David (one of the Program Assistants) on the vast and beautiful universe that we live in, then we were off to our cabins to sleep and prepare for another amazing day.
