No, we didn’t loose one of our staff members, but our campers did have to work together tonight to find her. After performing an investigation as to the whereabouts if Sarah Van (our sailing director), campers then had to compete to get her back in a giant game of capture the flag. In the end, it turned out that Sarah was in the basketball kiosk the whole time!
Of course, there is much more happening at camp than just night activities. It seems that even in the short amount of time in between activities and meals campers find a new adventure to be had. Some of the most popular activities include playing “Lightning” and “Nuke ‘Em.” Both of these are twists on older games (Basketball and Volleyball, respectively) but can get many more people involved. Nuke’ Em is especially popular this year, as is its neighbor pickleball. In fact, pickleball has been growing so popular that a new court was laid this summer! While we still have to paint some lines on it, campers still have a lot of fun out there.
Yesterday was also our traditional “Tie-Dye Tuesday.” This free-land activity allows campers to tie-dye white clothing in Arts-and-Crafts. It is always amazing to see how many campers tie-dye, and how creative and imaginative they can be. Yesterday also ended with a gigantic luau! Campers had tons of activities to go to, such as pontoon rides, hula contests, and lei-making. There was even a spot to grab some freshly grilled pineapple!
