Wednesday of TI

  Today was such a great day! We began the day with polar bear plunge and then it was time for breakfast (breakfast pizza).  Morning chapel was next (Christ was the ‘C’ of the day) and then two hours of cabin activities. Cabins were canoeing playing sports working on arts and crafts fishing and swimming. We had a little bit of rain at breakfast and during first activity but after that the sun came out and it was a gorgeous day!

And then it was time for 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. 

Lunch was rib sandwich and frenchfries and then we headed to a much needed rest time! 

After rest time it was time for individual activities. Arts and crafts were designing their own game boards canoers were busy searching for turtles in the boating bay swimmers were playing water polo drama was perfecting their skit for the talent show and campfire cooking was making some delicious treats over the fire.

Dinner was fettuccine alfredo with chicken breadsticks and brownies. And then it was time for all camp karaoke! Campers were singing their hearts out and even the crowd joined in on a few songs. You could hear the music all the way across camp! But we didn’t get enough time to rock out so next up it was time for campers to put on their dancing shoes! We turned ont he disco ball turned down the lights and CRANKED up the music! You should have seen the campers’ dance moves!

After that it was time to raise the roof in praise and worship- singing so loud you could probably hear us across the lake! 

Around 7:15 the rain came back and it’s supposed to pour tonight. So far it’s mostly just drizzle but we’re keeping our eye on the radar and we’re happy we made it through the day with such beautiful weather. 

Whew! What a busy day!!
