A rainy day could not keep us down
For the hash brown casserole was a light golden brown
The blueberry scones were pulled out of the oven
It wasn’t long til the boys started grubbin’
The morning yell was heard all around
As the boys began their day with a glorious sound
Then off to chapel to hear a true story
As Winston H. told of God’s glory
Our expedition staff grabbed kayaks and rafts
Each camper returned with memories that would last
Down the rapids on the pigeon river
But back at camp Timberlake, basketball worked on their silver
During fencing, Pace L. said “En Garde!”
While Ernest F. played with the dogs in the yard.
Just down the hill, Richard B. shot a grouping on the target
While Fox S. assembled his Seminole rocket
Activities came to a close and the bell rang for lunch
The pizza and pretzels looked too delicious not to munch
Suspense grew as results of cabin clean up were revealed
With Greybeard and Stomper’s Knob coming in with the steal.
The campers held their breath as another great victory was proclaimed
“Iroquois Won El Presidente!” John said and proudly they sang
Next the boys laid their head down for an hour of rest
Excited to see which free time activity they would enjoy the best
Rocketry, fishing, or maybe wrestling too
There were too many good choices to say no thank you.
Aidan K., Lucas O. and Wright B. crushed nine square in the air
Along with Barret C. and Wade C. without them the team wouldn’t compare
Luke H. and Neil R. dominated their basketball scrimmage
Their well-earned victory was a beautiful image.
Grant G. and Logan S. worked hard to earn a bronze in guitar,
We didn’t realize these boys could strum like a star
The day came to an end with meatballs and rice
Yippees were yelled for the dessert was oreo surprise
Finally, the boys rushed off to play Search and Destroy
Tune in to tomorrow for another a day filled with joy
