Monday of the Game of CYC
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! It was a little bit rainy so those campers were EXTRA brave! 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. It was a little bit rainy but luckily not so much that we had to change activities.
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 tenders! 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 the Game of CYC week so we kicked off the week with a BIG game of all camp Twister! Campers had to be flexible and stretch in all directions! Check out the photo of Director Natalie and Program Director Kayla painting the twister board on the field!
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!
