Today we woke up at 6:00 a.m., put on our bathing suits, and jumped into the especially cold water. After an intense game of Waboba, Starboard Watch won that put them in the lead by 2 points. We rinsed off, changed into our clothes, and got ready for the day. Starboard Watch then collected data from a series of water samples for the Buzzards Bay Coalition.

After everyone was dry, we prepared for a breakfast of bacon, eggs, and english muffins. When everyone had finished eating, both watches split up into…

Arriving at Tabor was nerve wracking. When everyone had arrived, we split from our parents and played ice breakers. We played a lot of fun games including Two Truths and A Lie and Human Knot (Tabor: 1, Human Knot: 1). We also did a blindfolded obstacle course where we had a fellow student tell us where to turn and walk to complete the course. After the games we loaded all of our gear onto the launch and finally saw the…
