Thursday of Mad Scientist Week

Our last full day of camp was possibly the best yet! What a great day!!

Breakfast was sausage, egg and cheese breakfast sandwiches and then it was time for morning chapel. Our ‘C’ of the day was community- which is fitting because throughout the week we’ve been using all of the C’s to build an awesome, fun, respectful and encouraging community. CYC is definitely the best place to be because of our community.

This morning was a true BLAST because, for our all camp activity on the field, we had a friendly race between cabins to explode a watermelon by putting rubber bands on it! It was super exciting and cool. We also got inventive by creating a contraption to protect an egg that was dropped from the deck of Sweeney Up. Our morning was very fun filled and exciting!

Lunch was meatball subs with salad bar and fruit! Yum!

After lunch was an hour of rest time. Then Activities were in full swing. The drama group was busy rehearsing and perfecting their act for the big show, canoers/kayakers, paddle boaters and paddle boarders were enjoying paddling around the Big Sandy Lake, archery was hitting those bulls eyes and the sun came out in the afternoon and swimmers were LOVING creating sand castles topped with flowers and more!

Dinner was mashed potatoes, turkey gravy, corn, salad bar and fruit. Dinner time was special because our awesome LITs (Leaders in Training) planned a super awesome Disney themed dinner. The dining hall was decorated with lights, creative centered pieces, and more. We listened to Disney music, staff dressed up as Disney characters, and they even put on a show by dancing/performing to a song from the movie of their chracters! It was a greatly entertaining dinner.


After dinner was an hour of prime time, and then the much anticipated and greatly enjoyed talent show! We have some very talented campers here at CYC and it was so fun to see everyone perform their unique acts.

A full day but we weren’t done yet! After chapel we had a recognition ceremony where each camper received a bead necklace representing one of the 5 Cs (courage, charity, community, cooperation and Christ). We listened to a story that explained the meaning of the 5 Cs and walked by torch light to the campfire circle to celebrate each camper. It was a powerful way to end our week.

Whew! What a great final full day of camp! We look forward to seeing the parents who are coming to our closing program tomorrow (which will begin at 1:15pm). Thank you for leaving your pets at home.

If your camper is riding the bus home, we will return to the Roseville Professional Center around 5pm.

"What camp means to me is learning about God, making friends and having fun. But the most important thing is being yourself. We have lots of fun at camp. The counselors are great, the friends are nice, the themes are awesome, and the games rule! When I grow too old to come to camp I want to be a camp counselor, but for now, I will enjoy the fun at camp. See you this year!" - Josh
