Sunday of Walk of Fame Week!
After battling a flood we are back and better than ever and SO excited to have campers back to CYC! Check out this video to see how great we look after recovering from the flood!
Campers arrived this afternoon filled with enthusiasm and energy and were eager to join together in cabin groups to get to know each other. After teambuilders and name games groups gathered their luggage and moved into cabins.
Dinner was a camp favorite (pizza) and then cabin groups headed all around camp to complete a scavenger hunt. The scavenger hunt was a good chance to get to tour camp learn some interesting facts (CYC was founded in 1947 Camp Dog Olivia’s middle name is Oprah etc.) and when cabins completed the challenge they were rewarded with their team bandanas.
Cabin spirit is incredibly important to us at CYC and all week long cabins will be singing their cabin cheers encouraging each other in positive sportsmanship and working to earn spirit points.
One of the ways cabins can earn spirit points is when campers use the 5 Cs. At opening Praise and Worship we discussed the 5 Cs (courage charity cooperation community and Christ) and how we can use them each day to help us be better people (while also earning spirit points).
After discussing the 5 Cs and singing several great songs in chapel campers were off to the opening campfire to sing songs watch some counselor skits get a preview of the week ahead and enjoy being together as a community. Campers signed up for individual activities and will begin art throwing fishing canoeing and much more tomorrow!
We are off to a strong start with lots of smiling faces and bubbling energy. It is sure to be a wonderful week!
