Sunday- The Game of CYC!
It’s the Game of CYC week!!
Campers arrived this afternoon filled with enthusiasm and energy and were eager to join together in cabin groups to get to know each other. Once campers were in cabin groups they started teambuilders and name games and then groups gathered their luggage and moved into cabins. It was a little rainy but that didn’t slow us down!
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 and get to know everyone in the cabin. It was also a great time to get excited about the week!
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! Unfortunately it was still raining so our opening "campfire" was in Sweeney. But we were still able to enjoy the same great skits and songs minus the actual fire.
This afternoon 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! Keep up with us on facebook check out our photo site and be sure to check back for daily blog updates!
