The setup was as follows:
Hootenanny at the Alumni Plaza, which had country style music, accompanied by straw hats, plaid shirts, square dancing, musical chairs and whole bunch of fun.
EDM (Electronic Dance Music) in the Staff Lounge, which had the alternative sounds of the New Zealand underground pumping, glow stick flowing and good vibes all round.
Hip Hop at the Craft Shop, which had the classic beats by dre, bandannas, black lights and old school hip hop tunes that got everyone involved.
Disco Funk in the Pioneer Hall, complete with disco ball, flare pants and maybe one afro, this was the place to be, to bring back those great memories of Saturday Night Fever.
Throwback Thursday (#TBT) in the Rec Hall, holla back to the good days of nineties pop! The rec hall was playing all the classics and none of the new stuff, getting people up and dancing to all the "oldies and
Beyoncé in the Chapel, which had lemonade, glitter and whole lot of sass, the chapel was full of single ladies (and gents) who were crazy in love.
Reggae at the Beach had a massive bonfire and whole bunch of chill vibes, they were jamming and bringing love to all.
Sock Hop in the Dining Hall, which was complete with flare skirts, root beer floats and so many sixties doo wops that had everyone surfing across the USA.
All the cabins moved around in a rotation to four of these stations last night and had an absolute blast!
It was cool to see that Pioneer and Homestead units come together and dance, I personally had a boy and girl Pioneer group come to the EDM in the Lounge station and danced for the longest time apart,
but by the end they had come together to create a giant dance circle, which I’m sure was the case for other stations. So that was cool to see, hopefully they made a few new friends last night. I think music has a great way of getting everyone involved and it was great to see that happening all over camp!
Overall, this week has been great so far and everything is running smoothly, it has warmed up a little too, but everyone is keeping cool by drinking water and taking advantage of the bay and those free swim blocks! Spirits are up even though all of our campers are leaving tomorrow! We’re going to miss them.
Tonight we have our final Eucharist in the Chapel and Bonfire- our Last Bonfire to be lead by Walt Lafontaine as th Summer Director. It’s going to be an exciting night, the skits are looking pretty good and there’s
bound to be a few shenanigans from the staff, but it will be fun!
