After just 6 days of camp, we have managed to pack a huge amount in here at Dudley. The weather has been spotty at best, but it has not slowed this group down one bit. Bench ball, Basketball, Laundry Lax, Goalie Wars, BOLOS, Team Majors, Fishing, Boating, Shows in the Hall . . .
The BCS trip left for their canoe portion of the trip in Ontario. The Junior division just left for the woods. The first Aides Adventure packed their bags and headed into the Adirondacks with Mollie Farnham and Tom Arnold. The weather forecast is good and the Lake is beautiful.
One of the things we have worked hardest to improve this summer is the food here in Westport. We’ve put in a vegetable garden and campers and staff have been weeding and harvesting. We’re eating lettuce that was grown on campus and the snow peas are ready to harvest. We’ve switched to Green Mountain Coffee and morning spirits are high. We’re grilling as often as we can. The bakery is back in working order, producing donuts, fresh bread for submarine sandwiches, crisps for desert, blueberry and cranberry muffins, and homemade pizza dough. As I have said a few times, “if it always smells like fresh bread on campus, everything else will be fine.” All the flour for the bakery is coming from Champlain Valley Milling in Westport, and soon we’ll be receiving shares for staff dining from Juniper Hill CSA in Wadhams!
Our partners in the kitchen from Sodexo are working hard and it is paying off. The boys are happy and the staff is well fed. We’ll do our best to keep it rolling.
