Sun, Sand, and Snow?!?

After a day at the beach, we returned home to celebrate Christmas! What a contrast!

Yesterday was our all-camp field trip to Reid Beach. Almost the entire camp boarded seven buses and several vans to travel to the beach for the day. We packed our towels, sunscreen, flip flops, and sunglasses and hit the road. Everyone had a fantastic time! Campers were burying their counselors in the sand, splashing in the waves, and tossing Frisbees around!

We even made a special friend at the beach! The park rangers had to corral a 6 week old seal pup who kept swimming over to us! This pup must have seen everyone having so much fun, that he couldn’t resist joining in! The seal was caught, moved to an outside area, and then swam right back to us! No one can resist the Matoaka Magic!

When we got back to camp we all got ready for a night at the theater! There was a sudden change of season as we celebrated Christmas as we enjoyed the camp production of “How The Grinch Stole Christmas!” We were transported to the festive world of Whoville as we watched our adorable campers perform their hearts out and give everything they had on that stage. It was easy to forget that we had spent the day in the sun at the beach as we were enchanted by the wintery wonderland onstage!
