Tuesday- Harry Potter
What a perfect day at CYC! It was perfect for a morning filled with archery canoeing sports geocaching fort building and much more. After cabin activities groups rotated between Hogwarts class stations. They learned some muggle magic (magic tricks) transfiguration (how to change shapes in HP better known as charades to you and I) potions (they mixed some ooey gooey concoctions) and many more.
After a delicious lunch of rib sandwiches and french fries and 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 paper rocket models the sports group played with the parachute fishers fished swimmers swam campers shot archery/slingshots/and thew tomahawks canoers canoed and outdoor adventure campers built a tee pee! It was a busy afternoon!
The Counselor-in-Training teens have been helping out in activities as well as doing some team building and leadership development activities. Tonight they are heading out into the woods for a campout which should be a great time!
We had dinner (spaghetti) and then we headed to the center of camp for a fast paced game of FUZZ BALL! This is a game that we invented at CYC. Campers have to collect all 5 fuzz balls for their team without getting tagged and sent to jail or tagged by the snachers. It was a wild game with many rounds!
As if we hadn’t already packed enough activity into the day after FUZZ BALL we sang and cheered our way down to the friendship circle for the tuesday campfire. We were entertained by a hilarious counselor show sang lots of songs and then we made s’mores while singing more songs.
After the campfire we ended the day in Praise and Worship. Our ‘C’ for the day is Charity. In addition to listening to a talk about why charity is important we raised the roof and shook the rafters with our enthusiastic singing (accompanied by the CYC Jam Band!).
We are having a blast and excited for more adventures tomorrow.
