Yesterday, the Wet-Your-Feet-Week campers arrived! Their fellow cabin mates were eagerly anticipating their arrival. The new campers settled in, were given schedules, and joined in for the rest of the day’s activities.
During Team Building (called Team Domination), they did an egg drop. The teams were each given duct tape, saran wrap, and tissues. They had to create something around their egg so that it would be protected. When the teams dropped their eggs from the top stairs of the gym, many teams were successful in saving their eggs. The campers are learning how to work together and rely on each other in Team Domination… and they’re having a lot of fun while they’re doing it. After the egg drop, each team got to crack an egg on their team counselor’s head.
We also had our first flag football game of the session! Signing up to be on a team is completely voluntary, but almost the entire camp has gotten involved! There are three teams: Yellow, Purple, and Red. Counselors coach the teams, and the campers have a lot of fun competing against one another. The Purple and Yellow teams faced off during the second free swim. After a long, intense battle the Yellow team came out on top.
Last night we took the campers to see the Winchester Royals! The kids had so much fun. A lot of them were able to talk to the players and receive autographs. A couple of the campers got to play catch with the players that were standing on the other side of the fence. It was a really great experience!
Today, the Wet-Your-Feet-Week campers have their first full day of activities! They have already been fully embraced by the other campers and are now a part of the family.
