Today began with a beautiful, still Cedar Lake and Polar Dip – campers woke up and got to jump in the lake for a chilly morning wake-up call. Campers who choose to jump in the lake every morning of the week get a prize on the last day!
Mondays at Camp are packed full of new things – new memory verses to learn, Morning Chapels (split for guys and girls), Clinics & Seminars, and a brand new game called “Mighty Mighty Scoop Noodle Challenge!”
Morning Chapels will focus on a different topic for guys and girls each day. Today, guys talked about Purity – what does it mean to be pure and how to stay pure in today’s world? Girls talked about Sisterhood – how to be a good friend and what it means to treat others women with kindness. Campers get the opportunity to delve deeper into these topics with their counselors. In the girl’s chapel, there was even a question and answer time at the end where staff women answered questions from campers.
Before lunch, there was plenty of free time for these Junior Highers to just enjoy hanging out with each other. Most choose to spend that time on the Hub, playing volleyball, foursquare, 9-square, or Octoball.
Clinics & Seminars happens after lunch. Campers get to choose from a variety of subjects, taught by different members of staff. Seminars are more of a “classroom” setting, whereas Clinics tend to be a more active learning experience. The Clinics & Seminars from today will repeat again on Wednesday, so campers won’t miss out!
As always, campers enjoyed Free Time after lunch.
Mondays at Camp Lebanon are known as “Mighty Mighty Mondays,” because we always play a giant field game called “Mighty Mighty Scoop Noodle Challenge.”
TAKE CAMP HOME: Ask your camper to describe the game of Mighty Mighty, and see if you can find your child in any of the pictures from the game (here or on Facebook).
After Mighty Mighty, campers headed back to main Camp to clean up and get ready for Chapel with our speaker Mark Allen.
