Boys Camp – Best in Show

Arrows about to fly

Wednesday at Boys Camp was awesome! We again followed our typical day schedule. During Community Time the age groups divided into camp to have adventures as a smaller community. The Seniors discussed the legacy they are leaving to Boys Camp. The Challengers divided into two groups; one went tubing on Stony Creek, and the other worked on a mural to benefit camp. The Darers tackled Old Baldy, and explored the dune system.

Up next was Tribal Games. The days competition was “Best in Show,” a game where the tribes competed to dress up their leaders based on varying themes. Some of the outfits were hilarious, and the campers enjoyed the slower pace on a hot day.

One of the Best in Show

After lunch and rest hour, we gathered in Council Circle for Assembly, which is usually a highlight of any day at Miniwanca. It was especially fun this time as the Waterfront Team showed off their lifesaving skills, and one of our LITs introduced a new way to sing “Weenie Man.”

Afternoon Interest Groups saw sailors on the water, discs flying in A-Bay, murals getting painted, and Bigfoot getting tracked. Everyone is having fun, and mastering new skills.

Our evening game was Scavengers, which is a multi-part scavenger hunt. It includes hidden tokens to locate around camp, a list of 40 items to find, and some riddles to solve. Campers enjoyed the layered challenge, but it was the Breakers who won the night by 1 point!

What a great day to be in Boys Camp.
