Thursday of Week 1
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 encouraging community. CYC is definitely the best place to be because of our community.
It was a little too chilly for the all camp swim we’d planned for morning activity, so we decided to have a special mid-day campfire with hot chocolate and cookies. We sang some songs, watched some skits and hung out together. It was even better than all camp swim!
Lunch was meatball subs! Yum!
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 a calm lake, perfect for paddling around, archery was hitting those bulls eyes and the sun came out in the afternoon and swimmers were LOVING the lake!
Dinner was turkey gravy over mashed potatoes with corn 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, dancing, 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.
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).
