Harry Potter- Thursday

 It was our last full day of camp this week and so we crammed as much goodness as we could possibly cram into a day! 

Campers were LOVING morning chapel and cheered for an encore of songs. The CYC Jam Band was happy to lead a few more songs to start the day out right! The morning theme activity sent campers back to Hogwarts classes to complete even more spells potions and magical skills.

It was a great day to have an archery/throwing tomahawk/slingshot competition canoe around the lake play sports go fishing and go swimming. The drama group and dance groups were busy with last minute rehearsal for the talent show and outdoor adventures were building fires and learning how to survive!

After dinner cabins headed to the Friendship Circle to watch the FANTASTIC talent show! There were skits dances singing groups jokes and it was amazing to see how much talent our campers and staff have! Afterwards we headed to the chapel for our closing Praise and Worship. Since it is the last of the week we did things a little different. Our ‘C’ of the day is COMMUNITY and we talked about all of the people (campers staff parents volunteers donors alumni) who go into making CYC such a strong community. There are other camps out there with similar activities but none can compare to us because we are a community based in faith that comes together to have fun make friends and connect through our shared love of God. That’s pretty powerful! Camper Jacob D has been having guitar jam sessions with Counselor Dana on all of our breaks and he jumped in with the Jam Band to help out with songs too!

Since this week is Harry Potter Week and just a little more magical than usual we had to do something special. At Hogwarts Professor Sinistra teaches Astronomy. We found someone even cooler- a CYC alumni (and Counselor Kayla’s uncle) Mike Lynch. He brought his HUGE telescopes and taught us about the constellations stars and let us look into the night sky to see some amazing views of the stars. Campers and counselors were excited to stay up a little later than usual and learn some cool facts about astronomy! 

What an amazing day!

"I love how every night we do devotions. And Sunset beach is the best place to hang out, and our cabins are very awesome too!!! Sweeney is very fun. We always have the dance party there, which is my favorite thing. They always have fun activities and we always like doing them." - Isabel
