It was our first full day of camp today and we are having a BLAST! The day started bright and early with Polar Bear Plunge where some brave campers headed down to the beach to start the day by jumping in the cold lake! A great way to wake up for sure!
On Sunday night cabins voted and chose the 6 activities they would do as cabin groups and this morning cabins began the day with their first two activity choices. Groups were canoeing doing art projects fishing dancing and exploring the nature center.
Before lunch groups were busy writing cabin cheers painting cabin flags and also tie dying tee shirts (wait until you see the campers rocking their brand new tee shirts on Friday!). Lunch was a camp favorite (chicken patty! yum!!) and everyone was excited to see their counselors sing to earn their campers’ mail. After lunch campers and staff had rest time to relax after a busy morning and get ready for the afternoon ahead!
The afternoon was time for individual activities. On Sunday campers chose 3 activities (from the list of arts and crafts throwing- archery slingshot and tomahawks fishing canoe/kayak dance drama sports outdoor cooking survival skills). Cabins divide up and campers are able to meet new counselors and other campers while they enjoy their individual activities. Dinner was followed by more cabin activity time.
It’s Inventor’s Workshop Week and so our evening challenge demanded that campers bring out their creativity. Cabins were given a variety of materials (pool noodles a bucket etc) and they had to figure out how to transport a marble across their field without using their hands or dropping the marble. Some of the campers were blindfolded some were tied together and some had to hop. You should have seen our genius campers and the creative ways they figured out how to work together to transport the marble!
It’s been a full day of fun but there’s still more to come! This evening we will play our favorite camp game called Angels and Demons. Angels are positioned throughout the forest and campers must take a piece of paper to each angel to get it signed and then bring the paper back to the bucket. The team with the most papers wins. However if they are tagged by the demons (don’t worry- it’s just counselors!) they have to give up their paper and try again. Campers have to be fast clever and strategic!
After A&D we will all head to the chapel to end our day with Praise and Worship! Yesterday we learned about all 5 Cs and focused on courage. Today we will be discussing cooperation and singing at the top of our lungs as we praise God!
