Tuesday- CYC’s Got Talent

What a perfect day at CYC! Once again we started the day with polar bear plunge. After breakfast flag raising and morning chapel (or ‘C’ of the day is Charity) we headed to cabin activities. It was perfect for a morning filled with archery canoeing sports nature swimming and much more. Our morning theme activity challenged campers to bring their talent out in full force. Cabins were each assigned a camp song and a style of music (opera boy band scream-o metal deep south country rap/hip hop) and they had to re-do the song in that style. They also got to create their own instruments to accompany the song. Our campers are the MOST talented so it was a pretty great show!After a delicious lunch of Italian dunkers followed by some cabin rest time campers divided into individual activities. The drama groups worked on their skits for the talent show the arts and crafts kids were making mosaics and baskets the sports group played several water games on the field fishers fished swimmers swam campers shot archery/slingshots/and thew tomahawks canoers canoed campfire cooking made pudgie pies and survival skills built a fire! It was a busy afternoon!We had dinner (tacos!!) and then it was time for some cabin free time. Cabins are working hard to earn spirit points and were busy with games and other activities. As if we hadn’t already packed enough activity into the day after cabin time we sang and cheered our way down to the friendship circle for the tuesday campfire. We sang our cabin cheers (showing SO much spirit!) were entertained by a hilarious counselor show sang lots of songs and then we made s’mores while singing more songs.We are having a blast and excited for more adventures tomorrow.Have you visited the CYC YouTube channel yet?
