Campers visit waterpark

Monday began with splitting the campers into three groups and rotating between a game of knockout and a few games of jailbreak.

When it got too hot outside, we headed indoors to cool off and do the craft of the week. We decorated sunglasses to use for the upcoming field trip to Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark.

The campers used stickers, duct tape, pipe cleaners and markers to draw creative designs on the sunglasses. Many of the campers made goofy glasses while others designed fashionable eyewear.

Farm animals visit camp

This has been a very good year so far; time is flying by.

On Monday we started off the week with a game of human pinball, one of the favorites at camp. Everyone battles to see who can stay in the game the longest.

Zach Y. was the winner of this game and he was very good at dodging the balls that were rolled at him from all different angles.

Every week we need to make sure to explain the camp rules and pool rules and any other expectations because there are new campers.
