Thursday of Beat the Heat

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

Breakfast was oatmeal and bacon and then it was time for an hour of activities. The leaders-in-training lead a super fun SUPER HERO stations. And then it was time to gather together as a community to celebrate mass. We’re not just a community that plays together, we’re a community that PRAYS together.

At 11:30, it was time for the FANTASTIC talent show! We have the most talented campers around, so it was a great show! There was singing, dancing, skits and more! It was so impressive to see our campers perform!

Lunch was pizza! Yum! Then it was rest time.

This afternoon, activities were in full swing. The afternoon was hot and sweaty and sunny.

Dinner was orange chicken, rice ad veggies!

After dinner, we had some time to pack up cabins and hang out and then if was time for our recognition ceremony where each camper received a bead necklace representing the summer of 2018 and 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 around 5pm.
