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!
Cabins started the day with chapel and then two cabin activities. There was a lot of canoeing swimming shooting archery and many more fun things. For our all camp activity campers were given plastic cups and challenged to build the strongest tower. Then they were given their marshmallow poppers from earlier in the week and had the chance to try to knock each other’s towers over!
After lunch (hot dogs and mac and cheese!) the it was a great day to have an archery/throwing tomahawk/slingshot competition canoe groups to tip into the lake and learn to rescue the sports group to compete the fishing group to make fishing poles out of pop cans and the swim group to go swimming. The drama group and dance groups were busy with last minute rehearsal for the talent show and the campfire cooking group made dutch oven bread!
At 4:30 Bishop Piche from St Paul arrived and celebrated mass with us. CYC is not just a community that plays together we are a community that PRAYS together. It was nice to slow our day down a bit and join together to remember the most special part of CYC- Catholic! Nathan S served Paul D and Joe D did the readings and Maddie B and Gia P carried up the gifts and everyone sang loudly because as Program DIrector Kayla tells us in chapel each day- singing is praying twice!
After dinner we were headed to the Friendship Circle for the FANTASTIC TALENT SHOW! There was singing dancing skits and jokes! It was a great show!
Tonight cabins are enjoying one more night together. As this is being typed cabins are busy packing sharing memories of the week and having fun before falling asleep.
It’s been a great week and we don’t want to see our campers go!
