Wednesday of Super Stars and Stripes
Another gorgeous perfect day at camp!! We are having so much fun at CYC!!
Breakfast was delicious- biscuits and gravy!! The ‘C’ of the day was Christ. And the sun was shining as we began our first cabin activities of the day. Wednesdays at CYC means two of our favorite things and both happened before lunch.
First up was 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 the mud pit it was time for weekly mass. This week was extra special because the Bishop of Crookston Bishop Hoeppner was at camp to celebrate with us. 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 corn dogs 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 campers headed to the field for Air Force One kite flying. Cabins decorated kites and then raced around the field to see whose kite would be the best flyer!
But that wasn’t all. Because Wednesday night means DANCE PARTY! We turned on the disco ball cranked up the music and boogied the night away! Our campers have some moves!
It was a FABULOUS day and luckily we have another great day ahead of us tomorrow!
