Banding Together for A Day of Fun

Posted on

After finishing out the second week of rotation of interest groups, it was time for a day of special programming at Miniwanca. On Wednesday, campers spent their time doing a wide variety of activities throughout East Camp.

The day began with a regatta on Stony Lake. Campers could sign up to participate in several different races on canoes, paddle boards, kayaks, or sailboats.

During each boat race, campers on the waterfront cheered on their friends out on the water. Between each race, the campers played beach volleyball, flung themselves down a slip-and-slide, or played games in the boathouse. 

The next set of activities involved the adventure courses and the archery range. Campers from each quad rotated through stations where each individual camper participated in challenges that could earn points for their quad.

After a much needed rest hour from a busy morning of programming, it was time for and afternoon of sports on Bryant Field. Campers competed in a number of events, including gaga ball, football, soccer, spikeball, nine-square, and card games, or they sat back and enjoyed watching different activities with the staff.

Rounding out a fun-filled day of activities came Night’s Doings: No Egg Survives. For this challenge, campers worked in small groups to create an invention that would prevent an egg from breaking when dropped. It was a wonderful day as one community, and Boys Campers look forward to more special programming days ahead.
