Dance Hall Dodge Ball with Lakota Village
We’ve had some rainy days up here in the Catskills recently but that hasn’t stopped the fun and games at camp.
On Tuesday I got to hang out with the girls from Lakota village who were playing Dance Hall Dodgeball a mixture of Musical Statues/Freeze Dance and Dodgeball, which went down a storm in the dining hall!!
Counsellor Ashley was the DJ and referee and the rest of staff divided themselves amongst the two teams, we even had a cameo appearance from Nurse Darlene. Inclusiveness is a core value after all!
