Every year, the 15 year old's of Camp Agawak take a trip to prep them for their CIT year. This past week, Kenzi and I led the group of 40 on a 3-day camping trip in the Porcupine Mountains.The area in located in the small town of Ontonagon, MI, next to Superior Lake.
We left camp early Tuesday morning with the vans filled to the brim. After a two-hour drive we finally arrived to good weather and a spacious campsite. After the girls set up tents and ate some lunch, they took a couple short hikes to explore the area and then headed to the beach. After dinner and desert, the girls went back to the beach to watch the sunset (which was a cotton candy painting and AWESOME) and the headed off to bed early.
Day two started out with french toast and Nutella sandwiches after a good night's sleep. Around 11am we headed out for a hike, but unfortunately wasn't able to finish without getting rained on. The girls were troopers and splashed through the mud and wind before we made it back to camp. The rest of the day was filled with rainy beach trips, Lake of the Clouds vistas, and chocolate brownie soup treats. Despite the positive attitudes, storm clouds continued to roll on for the evening and we decided to cut the trip a half a day short.
Kenzi and I are so proud of these brave PA's! This trip was the first camping experience for a lot of these girls and they still continued to find positive light and solution-oriented attitudes throughout! Go cabin Y and 15!!
