DSC00774Today was our first full day of classes and activities. Earlier in the day we had a water day! The fire department came to visit and made the activities even more exciting! There were a lot of water activities and there was no shortage of water to throw around. The day would not be complete without some Jedi training taught by our personal camp master Jedis. The younger campers were able to practice their jedi skills and make a light saber. The older campers participated in an off-site overnight camping trip and will meet us at the lake tomorrow!!

Their favorite moments included: a fun roast of the counselors, performing a dance routine to a mix of Disney classics, food eating contests, and a hair donation to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths.

Today the campers leave for home. We are so sad to see them go, but are so grateful for the memories made this past week. Keep an eye out for the yearbooks that are on their way home and get excited for all the camp stories ahead!!

Camp Sidekicks 2015 – Day Three

Today was an eventful day in CampilyLand. To start off, campers went to their classes. Then after lunch, they went back to their cabins for rest hour to prepare for the most epic activity in camp history… THE JELL-O WAR!! Campers put on white shirts, crocks, and their Jell-O faces. We rushed down to the field because rain was in the near future for the forecast. Everyone threw Jell-O and got super sticky!

All of a sudden, clouds started rolling in while campers were hosing off in the field from the sticky mess. Everyone was instructed to go into the Lodge to wait for the storm to roll over…in their jello-covered clothes! Finally, the storm was gone and campers all took showers and cleaned off before dinner.

After dinner, the squeaky clean campers did Jedi Training in the lodge and went to bed.
