Day one of our Summer youth mentor program continued with plenty of first-time experiences for our youth. Horseback riding was a crowd favorite, with almost every camper (and the mentors) having the opportunity to take a horse around the obstacle course. Cabrina was Phantom Lake’s resident horse whisperer and expert equestrian. She was excited to share everything she knew and loved about horses with our youth.
After horseback riding, there was some downtime, so some of the campers joined our mentors in playing softball, learned new games in The Hollow, or explored the campgrounds. After dinner, our youth were excited about their first campfire. Mentors led them in making s’mores, telling ghost stories and providing a few friendly frights.
