Session 3!

July 12, 2011

Sorry it’s taken us until now to update you about the week…our internet has been down, so we haven’t been able to post anything! The good news is, its up and running again so here we are with a quick update about how things are going with Session 3:

The first thing that comes to mind is HEAT! It is stifling outside, with temperatures in the upper 90’s and heat index over 100, so we’re making sure to drink LOTS of water all day long, and offering activities indoors during the hottest part of the day.

We had a great opening campfire on Sunday evening, complete with songs, games, and a really funny skit about a trip to the doctors office! Some of our counselors also revealed their hidden talents with “Headphone Karaoke” – a task that requires them to stand in front of the camp with headphones in their ears, and sing along with the song! If you’ve ever tried to talk to someone with headphones on, you can perhaps understand how funny this was to witness…believe it or not, the staff have some pretty good voices (and quite the stage presence…).

Monday was a “typical day” of rotations in the morning, followed by some gym and movie time in the activity center after rest time…this was due to the heat and not wanting much high activity during the hottest part of the day. It was also great to refresh with a pool party Monday evening, followed by some evening worship in the Activity Center.

It’s Tuesday, and another hot day, but we had a great morning of rotations, followed by some much needed rest time after lunch, and then some time indoors to get away from the heat. We all met in the Activity Center and had cabin “skit time” which required each cabin to pick one item in the camp store and create a skit/”commercial” about that product. This was a lot of fun, and followed up by some free time before dinner.

Evening program for the night – COUNSELOR HUNT! Many of our counselors will be hiding around camp, while campers do their best to seek them out and earn points for their cabin! It always ends with some delicious pies placed ever so gently in the face of some of our counselors – always a lot of fun!
