4th of July

Who's the Birthday Girl of the day? It's U...S-A!

Happy 4th of July. Only the BIGGEST day of the year at camp!

Not only does the WHOLE of Minocqua line the main street for the parade, but Agawak for Girls is one of the main attraction. Over half of the camp participates in the parade dance (where they dance over a mile!) and spent the first two weeks of learning it.

Naturally, it was a complete scorcher and half the girls were exhausted before the parade even started but they pulled through like champs and gave the crowd an amazing show.

Following the parade the whole camp went down to the lake to watch the local ski club - the Min-Aqua Bats - perform. Tricks, stunts, skiing, cool boats and all manner of fun later we moved back to our base camp and got ready for fireworks.

The 4th of July Minocqua fireworks are something that I look forward to all year. It's a great show, the kids love it and its the end to an amazing day. Everyone loves it!

I was lucky enough to get a ride back to camp in the camp fire truck. Yes! The best fun to be had ever!

Its hard to believe that another 4th of July is over and done with and I'm already counting down the days until the next one!
