Monday of All Stars
It’s our first full day of camp and it was a perfect warm sunny day today!
A large group of brave souls started their day at 7:15 by marching down to the beach and jumping into the freezing cold water in one of our favorite rituals- polar bear plunge!!
Breakfast was french toast sticks and sausage! Yum!
Our ‘C’ of the day was COOPERATION which was learned about by a hilarious skit at morning Holy Ground.
After morning prayer and raising the flag we headed off to cabin activities where groups canoed played sports did arts and crafts and did team building activities.
At 11:30 cabins painted cabin spirit flags and also tie dyed tee shirts!
After a fabulous lunch of chicken patties and tater tots and a much needed midday rest it was time to start individual activities. Campers went fishing played sports learned about drama did arts and crafts went canoeing shot bows and arrows went swimming and to cooked yummy snacks at campfire cooking. It was a full afternoon!
Dinner (spaghetti and garlic bread) another short rest and then it was time for good old fashioned dodgeball! 103 kids and their counselors and a fat bulldog and tons and tons of balls! It was a blast!
At praise and worship for evening chapel we sung songs said the CYC prayer and heard one of the counselors give a talk about cooperation.
As if the day wasn’t jam packed enough after chapel it is time for our FAVORITE all camp game- Angels and Demons! Campers must run to each of the three angels hidden in the forest to get a small piece of paper signed and then bring it back to their team box. Whichever team gets the most paper wins! But there are not just angels there are demons too and if they tag you you have to give up your paper and start over! Campers need to be quick clever and a little bit lucky!
Whew! What an amazing first day!
