Tuesday- Outta this World
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 competed in a water balloon challenge! Small groups collected random materials like cardboard fabric tape or anything from nature and had to build contraptions that would protect a water balloon. Once they were constructed we headed to the deck on Sweeney Lodge to drop them and see if the water ballons were safe or SPLAT!
After a delicious lunch of tacos 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!
Dinner was tater tot hotdish 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.
