I'm once again posting very late at night and don't have time to write much, but on the whole, I think I'm going to like this place much better than Ton-A-Wandah:

(a) There are five periods a day, not six (and we get one free).
(b) We get four FULL days off (9am-1am) plus most nights after the kids are asleep.
(c) Swimming isn't mandatory, so the only kids in it are the ones who WANT to swim,
(d) and there aren't many of those, so we get to try wakeboarding and waterskiing sometimes.
(e) We also get to ride along and lifeguard from the boats, for the kids who are participating in those activities.
(f) There are awesome out-of-camp trips to water parks, movies, the beach, rafting, and even whale watching.
(g) The food is great, and there are so many choices at each meal that I can't believe it.
(h) They have SKIM MILK available for us at ALL MEALS - so I can finally have milk with a camp dinner!
(i) I have my laptop (even if it does have to be a secret), and I certainly wasn't the only one to sneak one in,
(j) and there's Internet in my room (also secret, since I'm not supposed to know that or use it, but who's going to tell?)
(k) There's an awesome gym that we can use in any free time we have.
(l) The lake is, surprisingly, the perfect temperature.
(m) And best of all? I have not yet met one person whom I don't like.
