Cannot wait to meet everyone and have a beautiful last day of camp.
Day Five – Dance
The annual camp dinner dance took place last night. Campers and staff dressed in festive clothing to match our Campilyland amusement park theme! The costumes were AMAZING and the creativity was unmatched! After an awesome dinner served by the Leaders in Training, everyone returned to the dinning hall for the dance. The dance was full of great music and an awesome light show!
Day Four – Jello War and Movie Night
The infamous JELLO WAR took place today. The kids and staff were able to participate in the ultimate form of food fight and throw jello! There was no jello to spare during this fight and no one walked away clean! After a much needed shower time… we had dinner and ended the evening with The Princess Bride! Tomorrow will be jammed packed with the Formal Dinner and Dance. Be sure to follow us on FaceBook for more up to date posts and pictures!
Day Three – Lake and Campfire!!
Campfire time!! Campers gathered around the fire and we sang our favorite classics including “I saw a Bear” and “Princess Pat.” There were lots of smiles and giggles to go around. The campers also participated in LAKE DAY! Campers and staff headed to the Lake where they were able to ride in canoes, go wading in the water, and of course FISHING!! Lots of exciting things happened at the Lake and included lunch complete with a cookie.
Day Two – Water Day
Today 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!!
Day One – Arrival
Today the kids arrived in style and full of smiles. They were escorted by the ACE Corvette Club and each received a small corvette to take home as well. The staff planned a “Back Stage Tour” of the camp grounds to go with the theme of “Campilyland.” Campers moved into their bunks and are ready to go for a week full of adventure and fun!
