Campers are Reaching Their Goals

The Leap of Faith is an incredible challenge for some (including those of us writing this post!), but our campers have conquered the challenge without problems. 





In "Art in the Air", projects have included hot air balloons and unicorn ornaments.



A Check-in With a Couple of Wednesday Morning Classes

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood! The muggy weather of summer is back.

Here are some snapshots from a few classes this morning.

Leathercraft



T-shirt Art


Outdoor Adventure, Measuring Trees




Performing Arts, an Original Production


It's Crazy Hat Day!


Campfire Cooking: Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag and Peach Cobbler in a Dutch Oven


Ceramics





Arts & Crafts: Making Lava Lamps


And sliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiime!


An Aloha Experience on Tuesday at Camp

Parents, you have entrusted us with some GREAT campers this week! This is one happy place! Tuesday was Hawaiian Day and the aloha spirit was alive and well. Take a look at some of our fun.

Canoeing on Lake Culpeper and fishing along its banks...


 Aiming for the bullseye in Archery...


Navigating the High Ropes Course...



Working together on Low Ropes initiatives...


Conquering fears on the climbing wall...


The evening program was Cruise Ship Games to go along with our vacation theme. While there was no shuffleboard, there were other games such as...

Beach ball carry. Place a beach ball between your and your partner's back; race down to your counselor and back to your pack for a relay race.


Sling-shot a wet sponge toward a bucket. A teammate wrings out the sponge and the team to get the most water in the bucket after a certain time period wins.


Did we mention Hawaiian Day? These are 4-H clover shirts for the Great Bears and 4-H Agents. Missing: Lil K. She was working hard!


Then it was time to dress your counselor. You're a good sport, Toad!


On a warmer evening, this would have felt great! Fishing marbles from a pond of icy water! One pack retrieved ALL of the marbles!


What's a cruise ship without a fun family photo???


We sure couldn't do this without our adult volunteers. Thanks, Smylyn!


Another happy family (pack)!



His photo prop says it all!

And a beautiful campfire to end our day. The Great Bears and teen counselors are doing a FANTASTIC job of leading very spirited campfires, and the packs are putting together great skits, challenges, and chants! Again, parents, you've entrusted us with a great group!!!


pretty animal contest



Bring your Super Hero Pretty Animal to the Fair on Thursday, June 21 for the 
Cloverbud Pretty Animal Contest/Parade.

The contest starts at 6 pm.

The theme is Super Hero.

The rain didn't spoil our FUN!!

It was cloudy and drizzly all of yesterday but the camper made the best of it and had a great day!  After morning classes we enjoyed some time at pool (yes, many campers still got in the pool!) and rec fields. After dinner our packs competed in the COLOR WARS! Campers from all packs competed against each other in a variety of challenges.  So far the Bobcats have the most point.......so far!  Campfire was moved to the picnic shelter but our campers, teens and staff were full of 4-H spirit!
Gearing up for the climbing wall
  T-shirt are bleach pen designs

 COLOR WARS!!!

 "Junk in the trunk" - shake the ping pong balls out of a box strapped to your backside

 Dictionary look up:  Who can find the words the fastest!!

 Mummy Wrap - shortest campers wraps the tallest camper in toilet paper 

 Staff demonstrates the "Peel the banana" challenge.  The Deer pack rocked this!!  Less than 3
