H2 started the day off on the Banana Boat. Also on the bay, H7 went tubing. While part of the group was on the tube, the rest of H7 sat on the dock and did Praying in Color, a Christian Ed activity. P6’s Christian Ed activity of the day was Sand Painting – a Native American form of prayer we get to take part in here at camp.
The Environmental Center (E.C.) also had a busy day! H1 played Predator and Pray with the E.C. staff. Later in the day, P4 also had the chance to play Predator and Pray. Inside the E.C., P1 made salsa with vegetables picked from our garden. P2 completed an egg drop challenge. Adventure Pathfinder (APF) built survival shelters.
H6 cooked out dessert after Free Time, ending their day with a delicious snack. H8 completed a hayride around camp to finish off their first day at camp. They got to put their knowledge of camp songs to good use. Our hayride is powered by camp songs, if you stop singing the ride stops as well! Day Camp Two also went on a hayride earlier in the day.
Day Camp One challenged themselves at the Rock Wall. P5 played disc golf all around camp, not only getting to use our new course but also taking a tour of camp in the process.
P7 made lanterns at the Craft Shop, that will help light their site out in the woods.
Sailing Pathfinders spent the morning going over the Sailing Manual with Sailing Instructor Stephen and Waterfront Director Kevin. In the afternoon they put their newfound knowledge to the test and sailed Sunfish around the Bay.
A bonfire at the beach was the final activity of the day for H3 and H9. P4 ended their night with a “bang” as they partook in a drum circle at the Plaza.
The day was certainly filled with tons of exciting activities, we can’t wait to see what the rest of the session has in store!
