Thursday of Teen Week
Today has been such a fun day at Catholic Youth Camp. It rained for a short time this morning, so the run club ran in the rain and finished with abs in the chill zone. Coffee and convos, friendship bracelets and yoga all stayed dry inside. By the time breakfast (scrambled eggs and sausage) was over, the rain had stopped and it was another hot sunny day at CYC!
Our morning was full of fun activities. Following cabin activities, our entire camp gathered in Indian Point to turn our eyes to the stage for our CYC talent show. The list of campers signed up for the talent was so long, as our campers this week are so talented in song, dance, and skits.
Lunch was pizza and caesar salad.
At the end of the bead ceremony, campers were given the opportunity to add leaves onto our C Tree. Each leaf represented an act that revealed community, charity, courage, cooperation, or Christ here at camp. These acts were seen in campers throughout the week. This tradition gave campers the chance to offer thanks and love to their new friends, friends that played a role in bringing them closer to The Cross this week. The bead ceremony provided for a wonderful last evening together as we commemorated an amazing group of campers who will carry the legacy of CYC’s five Cs out into the world with them.
It’s been such an awesome first week and we are sad that the campers are leaving tomorrow. We are happy to still have a full morning ahead for many fun things!
The closing program will begin at 1:15 tomorrow and last about 45 minutes. Thank you for leaving your 4 legged friends at home. The bus will return to Roseville at around 5pm.
