The morning started with a meeting of the captain and crew on Long Wharf. They were extremely inviting and helpful. After the brief intro, we headed over to Camp Harbor View to begin the day of cruises.
Upon arrival, three of the camps lighthouses- around 300 kids- loaded on to the Fredrick Nolan for their trip around Boston Harbor and its islands. The second group of around 200 would come on the following tour. I was amazed that we were able to bring so many kids out to the harbor islands in just one day.

The boat then continued on towards Boston Light, where, after getting a good view of America's oldest lighthouse, we turned around and headed back towards Castle Island and the inner harbor. At this point we opened up the mic to all the campers and staff so that they could display their singing and rap skills, as well as their camp spirit. It was great to see how excited everyone got when they or their friends had a chance to get on the microphone. Most of the performances were extremely impressive, particularly some the young singers.
