Blue Skies in Adventure!
Yesterday afternoon and evening had still more rain – but campers made the best of it by having a gigantic mud fight that involved slinging gobs of gooyness at a once-white-yurt-now-turned-brown! They also played a game called “Killer in the Castle” to avoid the wet drops after dinner – a game in which participants need to figure out who in the group is “killing” the rest based on handshakes. A favorite activity was zipping and climbing in the rain – our group holds back for nothing! Campers said they liked the added challenge of having to zip through a rainstorm rather than just jumping off with good weather!!
Today the group started off inside making candles, followed by playing Geronimo outside. Geronimo involves moving seats in a circle based on different characteristics that are being called out by a counselor. As of right this moment – we are finally seeing some blue skies and sun – the first in a day and a half! Everyone is lounging around soaking up the rays and drying out shoes!!
