Energy stayed high as our Winter campers rolled into their first full day in a snowy wonderland! Each one of the cabins spread out their activities today taking advantage of some of the great opportunities like snowy gaga! Some of the morning’s highlights were meeting and learning about Frost Valley’s residential raptors, climbing the indoor climbing wall, caroling, and making winter swag in arts and crafts.

In the afternoon some of the cabins headed out to the tubing hill and took their crack at broom ball! Indoor archery and capture the flag on castle lawn were also amazing. Today was great because anywhere we went on Frost Valley property we were overwhelmed with a wintery wonderland, which could only be interrupted by brief interludes of hot chocolate.

Tonight our campers split up. The younger half of camp prepared lip sync performances while the older half of camp loosened up for a good old fashioned game of peaceful toss and evade (dodge ball).

Throughout the day our director team conducted interviews for the CiT’s and JC. We will continue with the CiT and JC interviews tomorrow.
