Windsong had a theme day.

The theme day was supposed to be a day where they shadow the director of camping services (Jeff Daly), but he had other plans. Things started like most others here at Frost Valley with flag raising followed by breakfast. At the end of breakfast there was an announcement by the Director of Camp Henry Hird announcing that because of budgetary concerns Frost Valley will no longer provide pickles at meals. This was the last straw for Windsong.

Secretly the day before Jeff informed them of this move and told them they should not stand for this. The fate of their meals were now in their hands.

Windsong jumped into action. With hidden signs of protest and a new secret pickle cheer they let everyone know in the dining hall that this new policy will not be taken lying down. They had the morning to prepare and then they acted after finding a secret document in the afternoon, from Jerry (Frost Valley’s CEO) to Jeff explaining the whole situation. Windsong had all the evidence they needed to take down key members of the director team and reverse the pickle decision.

There were four jars of pickles held by four directors. Their mission; Change the directors minds and get their individual jar of pickles.

Ambushes were set up around camp with Jeff helping lead the way to the liberation of the imprisoned pickles. One by one the directors fell under the clever ambushes set up by the Windsong girls, until eventually things ended with four jars of freed pickles and an inspirational speech made by Jeff the director of camping services, with pickles having a secure place at Frost Valley meals due in part to the rebellious spirit of the women of Windsong.

Now thats a theme day.
