It was our first full day of camp today and we are having a BLAST! On Sunday night cabins voted and chose the 7 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 nuggets! 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!
It’s Mystery Week and one of the cool things campers are doing is searching for the Golden Olivia! Golden Olivia is hidden somewhere at camp and each day at breakfast campers receive a new clue. We thought Olivia was well hidden but we didn’t count on the SUPER SLEUTH campers! The clue was "Golden Olivia loves to hide but out or in she can’t can’t decide."
Anna F thought long and hard- through breakfast and chapel and figured out that the Golden Olivia was hidden in the bell! Way to go Anna! Spirit points for the B2 girls!
The Golden Olivia will be re-hidden and more clues will follow!
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 water fun outdoor adventure). 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 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!
