The first full day of Super Kids 1 was cloudy, rainy, blustery, and SO MUCH FUN! Camp Lebanon loves rainy weather – we have a great time splashing in puddles, snuggling up inside for some fun indoor games, or getting a little messy outside during some rainy, muddy field games!
First things first, campers went to flag raising (indoors), had a delicious breakfast, and cleaned their cabins! They learned the first memory verse and its actions (Colossians 3:12) today – memory verses earn them cabin points AND a name in the bucket to pie a staff member of their choosing!
Then, it was Morning Chapel time – we learned about the Parable of the Lost Sheep (Luke 15:1-7). Campers headed back to their cabins with their counselors to talk about the morning lesson and to tell stories of times when they have gotten lost before.
Take Camp Home: Ask your child to show you the actions for the memory verses, starting with Colossians 3:12. Have them teach you the actions, and then pick another verse you can make up actions to together!
After chapel, it was still pretty rainy outside, so we had some great fun playing games in the chapel. One of these games involved dressing up counselors in a “suit of armor.”
Take Camp Home: What are some other fun things you could make a suit of armor out of? Play the game with your child, and challenge them to be creative in making you a truly kingly outfit!
Next, it was time for lunch!
And then, more game time!
Take Camp Home: Ask your child about how the “maze game” worked!
During free time, some kids embraced the rain and played octoball, four square, and wiffleball outside.
While others stayed inside for crafts and rainy day games!
Since it was still wet outside, flag lowering was moved inside, and then we were sent to supper. After dinner, it was dry enough for Cabin Adventures to be outside. The different cabins did a variety of things that their counselors had planned.
Cabin adventures were followed by the game “Mighty Mighty Scoop Noodle Challenge.” We had learned this game as a staff during training week, so we were very excited to teach it to the kids. It was a little chaotic with so many people playing, but it was a blast!
Take Camp Home: Ask your child how to do the “Mighty Mighty Scoop Noodle Challenge” chant.
The campers are now enjoying their afternoon free time!
And after free time, we will have evening chapel, cabin devo time, and then off to bed for tonight!
