The first day of camp is a busy one. Our staff started the morning by leading a special chapel to introduce this summer’s Christian Education theme, “it’s all about love.” After chapel, P7 began making wind chimes out of clay while our Homestead campers headed to the pool for swim block. Later in the day, H6 campers braved the rock wall and our new Day Campers ventured over to the high ropes swing. H7 did the low ropes course with Ben where they climbed the “Swiss Alps” (used teamwork to cross from tire to tire in a line of swings). Our Sailing Pathfinders practiced their knots and received their manuals while their Adventure counterparts cooked up some delicious stir fry for their lunch.
Tonight was a very musical evening here at Camp. Spencer, a member of our adventure staff, serenaded folks in the craft shop while the Pathfinders and P6 had a blast at our first ever “Meeting for Singing” at the pool. While our traditional Monk Swim evening block required campers to be silent for the first ten minutes of the block, Meeting for Singing allows the campers to speak, but only through song. Homestead campers enjoyed a rockin’ bonfire on the beach and now are all safely tucked into bed :)
To quote some of our favorite lifeguards, "stay positive!"
