The Lake Shift - Day Four

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).

group photo of graduate students at the lake shiftIt’s 4:30am on Monday morning and all I heard were the Loons, making that amazing call from the waters of Lake Opinicon. "How very Canadian," I thought, "and sure beats the squawk of the Sulphur Crested Cockatoo in Australia to wake you up."

The Lake Shift - Day One

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.
