Tuesday of H2O Extreme Week

 Today was absolutely perfect weather- ideal for a fun day of camp! We began the day with polar bear plunge and then it was time for breakfast (scrambled eggs and bacon).  Morning chapel was next(charity was the ‘C’ of the day) and then two hours of cabin activities. Cabins were canoeing playing sports working on arts and crafts as well as using random materials to build mini boats that they raced in rain gutters (using straws to blow through to power the boats). 

The morning all camp activity was water stations- kids bounced between a variety of water themed activities- they crafted lava lamps played some wet water games (they got soaked!) and blew some giant bubbles. 

Lunch was grilled cheese and tomato soup and then we headed to a much needed rest time! 

This afternoon was gorgeous sunny and a perfect day for being at camp! The art group was busy making nail art (hammering nails into a board into a design and then wrapping sting to make intricate designs) campfire cooking was making donuts over the fire (cinnamon sugary goodness!) and drama was getting their act ready for the talent show. It was a perfect day for canoeing- there wasn’t a bit of wind and the lake was like glass and the fishing groups were reeling them in like crazy! They found the SPOT! Check out the photos on the photosite!

Dinner was beef stew and brownies!

Cabin free time after dinner gave cabins a chance to perfect their talent show acts skip rocks at the beach make some craft projects play soccer and relax after a long day. After that it was time to raise the roof in praise and worship- singing so loud you could probably hear us across the lake! 

Our spirit was so great and our voices were warmed up so it made sense to head down to the Friendship Circle for a campfire! We sang tons of songs each cabin performed their cabin cheer we did the traditional CYC cheer and then we made some yummy s’mores!

It was a great day at camp!!
