The girl's waterfront staff started the 1964 season with many challenging goals. We are pleased to announce that they all were surpassed. With a population of 126 girls, we have 105 who have passed deep water tests. All of these 105 girls have gone on to pass their half lake and whole lake tests.
During daily swim instruction periods, we have concentrated on helping the campers earn the various Red Cross certification cards. Many girls are finishing their first card of the summer while many others are working on their second. This year we have added some spice to the already crowded swimming program - a fifty mile swim.
Always keeping abreast of the needs of our public, we have had many shampoo parties. The high point of this soapy season was the largest bubble bath in the history of Camp Ranger. Needless to say, a good time was had by all.
To add more spark to the program, the waterfront was quite an exciting place during color war. We had a wonderful time planning and running the swimming contests. It was a pleasure watching the Red and Gray compete. Good sportsmanship pervaded at all events, no matter how fierce the competition.
We had quite a nice turnout for the Junior Lifesaving course. To add some color, films were included in the program. They were so valuable that they were shown to the entire camp. The girls are doing very well and it looks as if passing grades will be given to all the candidates.
The highlight of the season was the Aqua Show. The boys and girls did an excellent job. Both of the participants and the spectators had a wonderful time. We were all amazed at the speed with which the acts were learned. The
audience was treated with the Ranger Spirit at its highest level.
We would like to thank Donna Sellinger for being so very helpful all season. We know it won't be long before she has a waterfront of her own. Rena Bramnick also deserves our thanks. She gave unselfishly of her time and effort to make the water ballet in the aqua show the success it was.
We now have the pleasure of wishing all of you a very happy year of "civilian life." May all of you be successful in school and may we look forward to having another wonderful season next summer.
