This morning we’re in for cloudy skies and a good chance of rain. The temperatures will rise into the low-70s this afternoon, and the clouds will hang around until dinner. We might have scattered thunderstorms this evening, but you can always wait them out in the Champlain Lounge!
A great way to start the day is by getting active! Join Nancy at 9:45 AM at the Treehouse Wellness Center for a morning Gentle Yoga session. Open to all ages and experience levels, Nancy will help you greet the day as she guides you through a series of gentle stretches and breath work. We also have the Short Game Golf Clinic at 8:00 AM for you early birdies! Not a golfer? Catch our tennis pros teaching you all the essential techniques at their 10:00 AM Adult Tennis Clinic. Then you can put those skills to work at the 11:00 AM Tennis Round Robin!
If you’re looking to explore a bit more, join Colton for a 10:30 AM Adirondack Hike! You’ll boat across the lake to the largest state park in the US, and Colton will take you on a moderate hike with beautiful views and interesting fauna sightings. Sign up with the Concierge and make sure you bring water!
Our daily Narrated EScape Cruise has shifted to 12:45 PM today, so grab a bite to eat at the Ranger Room and then head down to the Waterfront for a smooth cruise around Lake Champlain! Captain Marty will share tidbits about the natural landscape, the rich historical context of our lovely slice of Vermont, and bring you across to see the magnificent Palisades.
After lunch get some more swings in on the courts or the greens! There’s the 1:00 PM Full Swing Golf Clinic, the 1:30 PM Tiny Tots Tennis Clinic (for those aged 5 and under), or the 2:30 PM Junior Tennis Clinic! Also be sure to catch the tennis pros in an Exhibition Match at the clay courts at 4:00 PM!
Join April for a 2:00 PM Guided Bike Trek around the beautiful back roads of Vermont! Amidst the growing rows of corn, you’ll be able to take in the scenery of the land beyond the basin and get in a great workout! Sign up with the Concierge and bring your bike down to the Waterfront to meet April.
Get out on the water this afternoon with Colton! Join him for a 2:30 PM guided Paddle Boarding session across the lake or up and down the Vermont shore. Every trek is different, based on the weather, so be prepared for mild to intermediate paddling. Sign up with the Concierge to reserve your board!
In the Club Room this afternoon we will be mixing it up with Homemade Extracts! Join Katie & April and create your very own extracts to add to your spice cabinet. We’ll use alcohol as an ingredient for this workshop, so 21+ only, please.
At Ardelia’s tonight we’ll have Jenni Johnson providing live music for an evening of dinner & dancing! Take a spin around the dance floor between delicious courses. Then at 8:00 PM come on down to the Sunshine Lawn for a sweet treat: our Welcome Campfire and s’mores!
We’ll keep the party going at the Red Mill, with live music from The John Lackard Blues Band! Head on over at 10:00 PM and hit the dance floor with a boogie!
A reminder to all of you Week 32ers: it’s time to place your reservation requests for 2018 before you leave! Next year Week 32 begins on August 11th, and we look forward to having you all back for another year of fun!
