Safety first! Sunday night we had a fire drill down at the flagpole around 9:15pm. The girls came down when all of the sudden fire trucks and ambulances came through camp. Sirens were on full blast! As they passed the girls wondered can this be it? Can this be Team Week 2022? Sure enough an unbelievable firework show lit up over the lake, glistening with the stars.
