The second last day of Blaze was full of buzzing campers today! After a delightful morning of flag raising and morning activities, apple and cherry turnovers were the perfect answer to growling stomachs. There, Aunt Erin and Aunt Samantha explained what the day was to hold and the theme of the day. They were then sent off to choose their activities and get started with their Thursday!
The weather was fantastic again today! The water-based activities were again filled, and the refreshed, contented faces of the campers could be seen poking up from the lake’s surface. As the week starts coming to a close, the kids were sure to make the most of their time in the outdoors!
After a filling lunch of pizza and veggies, the lunch dress-up winner were announced. The theme for today was seasons! The campers were prompted to use their creativity and do something different than the other cabins, which they certainly did! There were some seasoning connoisseur’s, salt and pepper shakers, Frozen themed characters, and some cool painted arm artwork!
Shortly after a dinner of ham, the campers headed down into Underground. The Underground topic for today was love, where they talked about how everyone is loved by God and how important it is to love each other. Each cabin then chose another cabin’s name out of a hat, and were then told that they had the honor of doing a random act of love for that particular cabin. It was amazing to see how far out cabin’s went to love their chosen cabin; some cabins made M&M brownies for another cabin to eat, some made up candy bags, another cabin set the cutlery and poured out juice for their cabin, and one cabin even gave up their second place in cabin cleanup!
The camp-wide game tonight was supposed to be a sports-athalon! Before it was changed, the original game was going to include water squishy dodge-ball, soccer, volleyball, and baseball; the team with the most games won were going to be declared the winners! However, the weather changed very last minute with rain and thunderstorms, so the campers ended up watching a movie (Zootopia) and playing games inside instead. It was a nice relaxing night indoors and gave the kids some time to recoup for their last day tomorrow!
