Thursday of TI
Our last full day of camp was possibly the best yet! What a great day!!
Breakfast was biscuits and gravy 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 encouraging community. CYC is definitely the best place to be because of our community.
Before lunch it was time for weekly mass. Our jam band is especially awesome this year and our campers love to sing which makes chapel an energizing and excellent part of the day. The ‘C’ of the day was Christ so it was a nice opportunity to take a break from the sunshine and crazy silly camp fun to remember what makes CYC such a special place. There are lots of camps out there but our community is rooted in faith and when campers come together for fun and friendship with faith at the center of all of it it makes for a place that has been exceptional for 69 years!
Lunch was hot dogs and mac and cheese! Yum!
Activities were in full swing. The dance and drama groups were busy rehearsing and perfecting their acts for the big show canoers were enjoying a long paddle on the lake campfire cooking made ice cream and apple cobbler arts and crafts made string bowls fishing was out on the boat looking for the hot spots and archery was hitting those bulls eyes.
Dinner was super nachos and then it was time for a little cabin free time. Some cabins were getting ready for the talent show some were playing speedball some played volleyball but all were excited for the upcoming talent show.
And what a show it was! We have the most talented campers around and the Thursday talent show was proof of that! It was a great show with lots of laughs and much entertainment. There were skits comedy dance singing and even some gymnastics.
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 to the campfire circle to celebrate each camper. It was a powerful way to end our week. Be sure to ask your camper which bead he/she received and why they earned it.
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 child is taking the bus home the bus should arrive around 5pm in Roseville.
