Once again, we were lucky in our choice of weekend for Great Escape and were able to offer swimming and paddle boarding as part of our program. Our GSEM Outdoor and Camp Staff attended in force this year (my offhand count is that at least 9 full time or camp staffers were present either in the kitchen or on the waterfront/outdoors. I could have missed someone, though.) The water was still warm from our hot and dry summer, and swimming started with polar bears before breakfast and continued through stroke refinement sessions and stand-up paddleboarding. Herewith some photos of our lovely naiads!
