Sunrainsunrain. That’s how best to describe the weather today.
When the sun was out the waterfront was terrific. The air was slightly chilly, but most didn’t mind in the least. It was perfect for swimming, sliding, jumping, paddling, skiing and wakeboarding.
In addition to the “regular” sports (tennis, soccer, lacrosse, baseball, hockey, basketball, etc.), the little guys of Bunk 1 were especially excited for archery. Congratulations to Henry, who was
the only one in the group who hit the target.
Here’s another cute story from the golf links. Skylemar’s pro, Ian, awards a Gold Golf Ball to the camper of the hour who demonstrates a commitment to golf (effort and skill development). Today Leo F was the winner. Another camper said, “I want to win the golden ball cause I never won anything in life.” Leo responded, “if I win again I’ll give it to you”. Now that’s what friends are for.
Meanwhile, the older guys (who are also adorable of course) had a full schedule of sports, plus Ropes Course and fishing. Bunk 6 headed out on a day hike, and then…
Down came big rain.
So inside we went for RASTA BUNKO! It’s kind of like Bingo but better. For whatever reason, reggae music plays, and the counselors in charge wear crazy wigs and silly outfits. Numbers are called and called until somebody yells out, “Rasta Bunko”!!! The JC’s run through the crowd ringing bells and squirting waterguns.
The winner comes to the stage and selects a “Stunt Card”. The stunt is read aloud, and the winner selects a counselor to perform the stunt. If the counselor succeeds, the entire bunk wins a prize.
For example, counselors Chu and Big Mike had to sing an Adele song.
Counselor Romaine had to pop bubble wrap without his hands or feet. Ty had to demonstrate Ninja moves. Triscuit had to push a ping pong ball across the stage with his nose. Afink was wrapped like a mummy with toilet tissue. You see, Skylemar counselors are immensely talented!
Eventually the sun poked through, and we moved back out on the fields and courts. Dinner was a delicious Thanksgiving meal with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and peas.
Just before the next chunk of rain fell, it was Scavenger Hunt for Evening Activity. Teams are made up of an older and younger cabin, and each team is given a list of items to find and questions to answer.
Please remember to save your four-leaf clovers for next year. A ’96 penny would be helpful as well.
