Tami and Ben have been sick with the flu for a week. So, I trudged through the snow to check in on them.
“Maxwell,” Tami said between coughs, “I need you to do me a favor.”
“Sure! Anything!” I put my hand . . . um, hoof . . . over my heart. “Your wish is my command. Clean the bathrooms? Answer the phones? Play with Ben? Take Cookie for a walk?”
“I need you to blog for me. There’s been no new posts since the 11th. My customers will think I’ve given up on it already.”
“Blog? Me?” I paced back and forth in front of her, scratching my antlers. “But, but, Tami . . . what’ll I say? What’ll I do? Who’s gonna want to read a moose post?”
“Your fans would, sweetie.” Tami patted my head and kissed my nose right before she sneezed, once, twice, three times. Flopping back on the couch and covering up with a blanket, she mumbled, “Write about what you do best, Maxwell. Fun and games.”
Yeah! I can do that!
Recreation is one of the best things about Poland Spring Campground! It’s why I hang around. Every day in July and August is loaded with awesome things to do. There’s arts and crafts at least once a day where you make stuff like catapults, boats, candles, princess hats or super cool glitter glasses
We play volleyball, basketball, bocci, horseshoes, relay races, water balloon slingshot, penny hunts, ping pong and pool tournaments for teens, bingo, flag football. We have ice cream making once a week. Pool games. Hayrides! Bingo! Jewelry making! Bubble play! Trash Bag Theater! Story time with moose feed!
You can see a sample of our recreation schedule here, on our website.
Every Monday night we have candy bar bingo. Tuesday has free pony rides
Thursday night brings popcorn over the campfire with scary stories told by the kids.
We theme every weekend too!
Pirate Weekend was new last year and an instant hit!
Here’s a scene from a skit Alexz wrote called Who Wants to Be A Pirate. Bryant and JMoney showed all the pirate campers how it’s done and then swore them in by reciting the pirate code.
Medieval weekend is always a lot of fun too! Jousting with noodles, Viking ship races, and a porridge eating contest are just a few of the awesome things you’ll find on our schedule that weekend.
Let’s not forget Christmas in July
Halloween in August
or Fiesta Weekend with a big South of the Border Party, donkey rides on Ricco Suave, pinatas and the bouncy house
But you know what I can’t wait for this year? Our brand new theme –
Super Hero Tryouts Weekend!
Who are you going to be? I think I’m going to dress up as . . . da-da-DAH . . .
Shhhhh! Don’t tell anybody, but I’ve been practicing my jumping and running so I can try out at the silly Olympic events. Tami says there’s gonna be a toilet paper tie up contest and water balloon target practice too! There’s so many cool weekends, I can never choose just one favorite. But I think Super Hero Weekend is going to be top of my list.
What’s your favorite weekend?
