So before telling you about today, let me give you a quick update from yesterday! The day started out shrouded in mystery as the village was told they were playing “woodland warfare” without knowing any great details. The counselors brought out a bucket of water balloons, took everyone up to a wooded area and played a version of capture the flag with the balloons. Everyone has a blast and enjoyed a chance to cool off a little while playing. After lunch, good ole slip & slide was the menu and a period of swimming and boating at the lake. Ultimate Mortal Noodle was the evening activity, followed by getting ready for sleep and a devotion.
Today started with natural facials and switchball over at the volleyball net, followed by creeking, cloud appreciation (yes, that is a whole period, and something the campers LOVE to do!!), and cooking monkey bread and vegetable soup with Luke and Mike. The afternoon was filled with high elements, nature art, waterfront and fo course starting to pack and prepare for mini-trips tomorrow! Right now everyone is prepping and priming before heading over to the dance!!!
Tomorrow everyone heads out on their mini-trip for three days, three nights of fun in the sun and out-of-doors!
