Fresh homemade cinnamon rolls, scrambled eggs, oatmeal, cereal, orange slices followed by a rainstorm. Fortunately, Barney and Cory had a rainy day schedule ready to go.
Cabins rotated through an assortment of indoor activities, including Games in the Lodge (ping pong, pool, foosball, etc.) and Flamingo Bingo. That’s the traditional game with a Skylemar twist. Winners get to pick a stunt card for their counselor to perform. For example, the counselor might have to do the chicken dance, sing the National Anthem, recite the ABC’s backwards or sing a song by Bruno Mars. If the brave man can do it, the whole cabin wins a pair of sunglasses.
The Garden Cabin smelled delicious with Cookie Baking. There was Bracelet Making at Chilltop, Legoland in the Farmhouse, and Board Games in the Bat Cave. Suzie’s Card Shark Game Show was a hit under the Pavilion. Porch Time with Shep can happen, rain or shine. Shep has a topic that the kids discuss while eating Scooby Snacks. Today they talked about what you should do when you see someone treating another unkindly: you stand up and speak up.
After a lunch of cheesesteak subs and make-your-own salads, the rain was finished so the regular schedule resumed. Archery, Volleyball, Baseball, Gaga, Hockey, Buoy Ball, Golf, Steal the Bacon, Soccer, Hoops, Throwing (as in discus and shot put) and Lax. Lots of action at the waterfront too. Check out the fish that was later filleted by Chef Junior!
Evening Activity was the Scavenger Hunt. A younger and older cabin gets matched up as a team, and each team has to find items as well as accomplish tasks. Without going into a building they had to find a pine cone shaped like the Eiffel Tower, a piece of duct tape, a water bottle with a sticker on it (easy) and two coins (really hard, especially nowadays). They also had to tell counselor QLew a haiku, sing a chorus of any song, name four ways to cook an egg, and figure out how many working toilets are at camp (69 in case you’re wondering…).
Congratulations to the winners, Bunks 12 & 17!
