What a beautiful day to get outside and play some games around camp today!
This morning started with the polar dip. Each morning, campers will have the option to jump in the cold lake to wake themselves up. After polar dip, campers gathered for flag raising, and then they learned today’s memory verse along with the actions (Colossians 3:12) before heading into breakfast.
We then gathered to take the whole camp photo that each camper will go home with. For now, enjoy the goofy one we took!

We then went into morning chapel for worship and a short video teaching the Parable of the Lost Sheep. After the video, campers went back to their cabins and talked about the story as a cabin.
Then, campers had some free time before Cabin Adventure. Counselors come up with an activity to do during this time as a cabin, and sometimes join with other cabins, to get closer as a cabin and have some fun!

After Cabin Adventures, it was time for lunch, and then we had “Story Time with Tori!” Our worship leader, Tori, had a Mad Lib story and had the campers fill in the blanks. Then, staff members acted out the story and campers were given their mail. Once mail was passed out, it was Toes Up Time. During Toes Up Time, campers have to be quiet and in their cabins so that those who want a nap can fall asleep.
After Toes Up Time, the campers were taught the game “Storm the Castle,” which is like a medieval themed capture the flag.
Then, it was free time with the waterfront, crafts, laser tag, and zipline open.
At the end of free time, we gathered for flag lowering before supper. After supper, we played “Mighty Mighty Scoop Noodle Challenge!” This game is also a spin on capture the flag, but with some different rules, and with over 200 campers playing, it gets crazy, but it is incredibly fun.
Now, campers have some evening free time until tonight’s chapel, which I will touch on in tomorrow’s blog. After chapel, campers will have cabin devotions and then they will go to bed.
