By Colette Steer, July 27, 2016

I thought that at least once, I should start the day's summary with - good morning campers!!

I have been tempted to bring out the camp counsellor persona for this writing retreat, but luckily for everyone I have resisted and toned down my enthusiasm to be at camp. It doesn’t mean though that I have completely hidden, just that I can act wildly out of camera (so to speak).

The Lake Shift – Arrival Day

By Colette Steer, June 24, 2016

At 10.30am Marta and I packed the cars and set off to Lake Opinicon to ready ourselves for the arrival of 41 graduate students from 7 Ontario Universities at Queen’s University Biological Station (QUBS). From 2pm, on they started to arrive in cars and a big yellow school bus. Some arrived with excitement and some with a little trepidation, after all some are city folk and what is this camping experience really all about.
