After a few days of pretty intense days, the heat finally broke and we had a wonderful perfect summer day, we still emphasized drinking water and sunscreen though!
This morning saw some of our Hemlock campers take part in archery and the others letting their creative juices flow with candles in our special candlemaking studio (brand new last summer). While that was going on, our Sacky and Tacoma campers were having a tea party with campers from Pokey Totem (our youngest village) and Mini-MAC. This was a great opportunity to bond with younger campers and be positive role models.
In the afternoon, Pac took part in Flag Racing, a new activity this summer that takes part on our main field. The campers are divided into teams and the teams race around a course relay-style with a few campers at a time in a hula hoop. The catch is that campers can slow down other teams by picking up dodgeballs along the way and hitting the other teams. When someone is hit by a dodgeball everyone in the hula hoop has to stop, spin, and sing a song. It is a wild, fast-paced, and hilarious game to watch.
Tonight was one of the highlights of the session for everyone, the all-Hird Ultimate Sicko Ball (also known as USB) game. USB is a 4 way game of capture the flag using different soccer, football, and dodgeballs instead of flags. As with everything at Frost Valley, it was a friendly competition with lots of spirit involved!
Tomorrow we leave our regular schedule for the day, stay tuned for some out of the ordinary activities.
