Thursday!

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

Breakfast was omelets and sausage 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. After chapel, we had two hours of individual activities.

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 mac and cheese and hot dogs! Yum! Then it was rest time.

This afternoon, activities were in full swing… a little modified because of the thunder and rain, but everyone was busy and having fun.

Dinner was turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans!

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 to Ascension Church around 5pm.
