Camp Sunrise 2016 – Day 5

The week might be winding down here at Camp Sunrise 2016, but the excitement is ramping up!

Today was the second to last day of classes, with campers enjoying some Science, Outdoor Games, and even a hike to the top of the mountain. At the end of classes, an afternoon activity involving Westerns and Fantasies was enjoyed by all before everyone prepped for dinner.

With the campers and staff in their best story-based costumes, our Leaders-in-Training hosted a night of fine Italian dining, followed by our world-famous dance. DJ Falling Rock and Mix Master Keegs spun tracks well into the night, giving our Sunrise campers the ultimate opportunity to Celebrate Life.

You don’t think the Snurf would’ve dared make an appearance at the dance though right?

Tomorrow is the last full day of Sunrise, and another full day of activities awaits!

Camp Sunrise 2016 – Day 4

Although today might be Wednesday, here at Camp Sunrise we call it Lake Day! After another wonderful breakfast from our kitchen staff, our campers loaded up the buses and headed off to Willow Springs Lake. The campers took advantage of a warm, sunny day by hiking, swimming, fishing, and filling the lake with canoes!

Upon arrival back at Camp, outreach teams from Nike and Storybook Entertainment were waiting to provide the campers with an afternoon of fun activities. Nike played a myriad of outdoor games with the kids, while Storybook sent Princesses Leia and Jasmine to hang out with the campers.

In case that was not enough, we wound down the evening with a movie and popcorn, before the campers mosied back to their bunks after our most active day yet!

Tomorrow is one of our camper’s favorite days, as DJ Falling Rock and Mix Master Keegs light up the night at the annual Camp Dance!

I wonder how the Snurf is enjoying his week? Follow the whole story on YouTube!

Camp Sunrise 2016 – Day 3

Camp Sunrise woke up to another beautiful, sunny day today! After breakfast, the campers continued their adventures in their classes, experiencing everything from Drama, to Dodgeball, to Movie Making.

The weather cooperated this afternoon, allowing the world-famous Jell-O War to commence without any interruption. The campers spent 30 minutes throwing Jell-O to their hearts’ content! The campers encountered a special surprise as the Christopher-Kohls Fire Department hosed down everyone and the sticky situation left over from the Jell-O War.

The senior campers ventured out on their Senior Overnight on the Mogollian Rim where they watched the sun set over the valley before setting up a traditional camp site. As the seniors were camping, our juniors enjoyed a night of S’more Making and a ton science and physics experiments in the dining hall.

We are calling it an early night here at Camp Sunrise in order to be well rested for Lake Day tomorrow!

Camp Sunrise 2016 – Day 2

Day 2 of Arizona Camp Sunrise is in the books!

After breakfast, the campers ventured off to their first day of classes. In addition to traditional favorites like fishing, hiking, and archery, this year’s campers enjoyed classes like Outdoor Games, Lego Master Builders, and Spy Camp.

The afternoon brought a wet and wild Water Day, thanks to a mountain of water balloons, frozen t-shirts, and a make-shift Car Wash.

After drying off and enjoying some cabin camaraderie, the campers descended on the fire pit for a night of singing, dancing, an good old fashioned camp fun.

Until tomorrow, good night from AZ Camp Sidekicks! Remember to check out Facebook for updates throughout the week!

Camp Sunrise 2016 – Day 1

Our AZ Camp Sunrise campers arrived at R-C Ranch in Payson, AZ this morning, and wow, what a day! Day One has been filled with lots of excitement and adventure. The campers were escorted to camp by the ACE Corvette Club and greeted with a full-day planned with cabin activities, camp tours, group activities, and of course getting their iconic lanyard photos taken.

This week’s theme is “Adventure is out there,” a wild and wooly ride through storytelling and adventure. We kicked off the theme with a rousing edition of Storytime with Uncle Bob (featuring a cameo from Lizard), and wound down the night with each cabin group imagining and creating their very own cabin characters and mascots.

The campers might be falling asleep in their bunks, but we are already looking forward to another full day tomorrow and lots of sunshine!

This week, follow along on YouTube as we tell the story of the Snurf who Snarfed Camp Sunrise!
