Wednesday of Olympic Week

 Another gorgeous perfect day at camp!! We are having so much fun at CYC!! 

Breakfast was delicious- breakfast burritos!! The ‘C’ of the day was Christ. And the sun was shining as we began our first cabin activities of the day. Cabins were doing arts and crafts playing sports paddle boarding paddle boating and fishing. 

Before lunch it was time for weekly mass. Our jam band is especially awesome this year and our campers love to sing which makes chapel an energizing and excellent part of the day. The ‘C’ of the day was Christ so it was a nice opportunity to take a break from the sunshine and crazy silly camp fun to remember what makes CYC such a special place. There are lots of camps out there but our community is rooted in faith and when campers come together for fun and friendship with faith at the center of all of it it makes for a place that has been exceptional for 69 years! 

Lunch was fish sticks and mac and cheese veggies and fruit rest time and then it was time for afternoon activities. The campfire cooking group made monkey bread over the fire the canoe group had a perfect glassy lake to paddle around arts and crafts worked on string bowls fishing was perfecting their casting and dance and drama continued working on their acts for the talent show. Whew! A lot of activity!

After dinner it was time for the mud pit. Cabins competed in tug-o-war over our giant sloppy mud pit. But the real fun comes afterwards when each cabin has the chance to jump in the mud pit and get COVERED in ooey gooey messy mud. Some campers went in just a little bit and some slid in head first! Almost everyone ended up with some mud on them. Once everyone was good and messy we all headed down to the beach to wash off. 

After everyone was clean (and cool from a nice evening dip in the lake) it was time for the FANTASTIC dance party! We turned down the lights flipped on the disco ball and boogied down! Our campers have some impressive moves!

Luckily we have another great day ahead of us tomorrow!

"What camp means to me is learning about God, making friends and having fun. But the most important thing is being yourself. We have lots of fun at camp. The counselors are great, the friends are nice, the themes are awesome, and the games rule! When I grow too old to come to camp I want to be a camp counselor, but for now, I will enjoy the fun at camp. See you this year!" - Josh
