It rained all day today. The facilitators decided to put on a few workshops today to keep the campers engaged, but we decided that we wanted to get out and get moving today, so we hiked the perimeter of the island - in the rain.
We got our rain gear on, which included rain pants, slickers and whatever waterproof boots we had, and headed out. The map below shows our route. The camp is at the north end of the island, actually it's the peninsula.We figure we hiked about six miles in three hours.

The camp was founded by a woman in the late 1800's - the plaque below describes this.
