Monday of All Stars Week
What a great first full day of camp! Campers and counselors were BUSY having fun today!
Bright and early at 7:15 a few brave souls headed down to the beach to start their day by jumping in the lake. Polar bear plunge is chilly but a great way to start the day! Breakfast was french toast sticks and sausage morning chapel introduced our ‘C’ of the day (cooperation) and then it was time for 2 hours of cabin activities. The cabins were busy with skits arts and crafts fishing archery making balloon rockets making cup towers and playing some intense soccer.
After morning cabin activities it was time for tie dye! All of the campers got to twist and tie their shirts and then pick our their colors to ensure that we have gorgeous shirts to wear on Friday. At the same time as tie dye cabins were also busy painting team flags and coming up with cabin cheers.
Lunch was chicken patty on a bun tater tots fruit and veggies. Afterwards an hour of quiet rest time was just what everyone needed to recharge for the afternoon.
In the afternoon cabins divided up as campers headed to the three individual activities that they had signed up for last night. Each activity brings together boys and girls from different cabins. Individual activity periods last one hour each and campers will do the same three activities each day. Arts and crafts archery/tomahawk/slingshot canoe/kayak fishing dance drama sports swimming campfire cooking and choir. It was a BUSY afternoon. There was a 5 minute downpour at the end of activity one but otherwise it was a gorgeous sunny day!
Dinner was spaghetti and meatballs garlic bread salad veggies and cake. Our cooks are the best! After dinner cabins competed in relay races on the field and then headed to chapel for praise and worship. After praise and worship it was time for our favorite camp game- Angels and Demons. Campers are divided into two teams. Campers have to run through the forest and go to each of the three angels stationed throughout the woods. Campers get little scraps of paper signed at each station and once they have all 3 they bring it back and put it in their team bucket. Whichever team has the most at the end wins! BUT there are also demons scattered through the forest and if they tag the campers the campers have to give up their paper and try again. You have to be fast or you have to be clever to sneak around the demons. Either way it is a blast and everyone loves this game!
It’s been a great day at CYC!
