Campers woke up this morning with as much excitement as they have on Christmas morning! After a yummy breakfast of bagels, eggs, and fruit campers got ready for Fun, Safe Summer rotations. This is where the campers (re)learned the ins and outs of this place we love so much. During these rotations each age group walked down to Stony Lake for the waterfront carnival with a slight hint of swim check. And how could we forget cabin photos! Everyone was so creative this year.
After such a packed morning we scarfed down a delicious lunch of grilled cheeses and tomato soup, followed by a much needed rest hour. The LITs woke everybody up with a hilarious Assembly filled with skits and songs to get us movin’ and groovin’.
Then interest group time was upon us. Stony Lake sailing, glittery things, and Lake Michigan beach time, oh my! All the campers were able to stretch their four folds with the wide variety of options available. Free time followed interest groups, allowing the campers to hang out with both new and old camp friends.
After a dinner of chicken tenders, mashed potatoes and corn Girls Camp participated in the famous Miniwanca version of The Amazing Race game for Night’s Doings. Amazing Race is a way for the campers to get acquainted with the different spaces around camp that we use daily. We then moved into some R fold activities with Evening Reflection. Girls Camp focused on the theme of the day, which was Inspiration. We all scurried off to our bays where we brushed our teeth and got into our pajamas, ready for bed after our first full day at Miniwanca!
