Special Events in the Riding Program Punctuate a Busy Week Three
Week Three began and ended with two great events for our riders. On July 5th and 6th we were pleased to welcome Becky Backer for special clinics. Mrs. Backer’s credentials include: earned riding certification (AI) in Ireland through the British Horse Society, trained, three students to the North American Championships in Eventing, and is currently a partner in Brentwood Stables in Angelica, NY. She also was our Riding Program Director Heather Pufky’s professor in college.
S4G and S4B separately traveled to nearby Salt Springs State Park for a Sunday evening cookout. Campers had an opportunity to hike trails and enjoy the falls.
Our First Half canoe trips on the Delaware River also went out this week. Each half campers and staff spend a day on the river, paddling close to 17 miles! The second trip on Wednesday was greeted with perfect weather and even an appearance by two giant Bald Eagles.
There was also plenty of action on the fields and courts. In addition to a full schedule of clinics, including the martial art Aikido, both camps held their Regattas, Decathalons and first-ever Triathlon.
Week Three ended with two huge events: the Camp-wide Orange and Blue Capture the Flag game and a co-ed “Club Susquehannock” co-ed activity.
