The fourth of July went in and out with a bang! Early in the morning on the fourth a group of campers went into Bath for a 5mile race and a 1mile fun run. The Chop Pointers did well, one camper won 4th place overall. The rest of the campers went into Bath after breakfast to watch the annual parade. After the parade, everyone returned to camp and had the option to play field games or hang out on the waterfront. It was a pretty lazy afternoon, a perfect time to prepare for the fun that lay ahead.
After dinner, the whole camp filed onto the bus and headed to Bath again for the carnival and fireworks. Some campers chose to go on the rides such as the ferris wheel. While others played games, won prizes and sampled from the different food trucks. I saw many campers munching on fried oreos, fried dough and other sugary treats. As the sky grew dark everyone started to find a place to watch the fireworks. Many gathered to the grass near the waterfront and others chose to watch on the rocks. It was truly a spectacular show and a wonderful way to celebrate!
