Anyone who’s been at camp over the past few days will have spotted cryptic posters scattered around villages by our junior boys counselors. The messages were headlined ‘Camp Friendship is set to be swarmed by a lethal strain of the FFX-1966 VIRUS’ and urged any campers and staff to speak to junior boys counselors if feeling unwell, to which they were greeted with stories about the zombie virus outbreak.
As campers prepared for the zombie apocalypse dance which took place on Thursday evening, Cody became the first counselor to be captured at lunch break by Alex, our high ropes expert and new found zombie disinfectant agent. Campers rose from their chairs with excitement as the junior boys counselors ran across the dining hall in full costume screaming ‘he’s got me.’
After a day of activities campers entered the hall for dinner feeling excited. Some campers were already dressed up for the evenings activities and some went back to cabins to prepare their makeovers.
The Zombie Apocalypse Dance went down a storm. Against the sound of beating rain there was a wonderful atmosphere of chaos and fun. Campers did the limbo, had a chance to have a dance with the whole of camp and admired each others costumes whilst telling each other their characters stories. Our junior boys counselors delivered a skit performance delivered by Ben who acted as a news reporter. Ben began the skit by reporting on the zombie outbreak around camp, closely followed by an outbreak of disinfectant agents that came into the audience from various store cupboards to seize the crowd. This performance made a tremendous impact on not just the evening but was the finale of
this weeks themed activity.
In other news, during activities on Friday, some of our campers enjoyed the fencing program by taking part in a game of roundheads and cavaliers. This is a game where campers split into two teams and can battle anyone on the opposing side. In this case one camper put up a good fight when he took on the challenge of defeating three remaining opponents.
Today we look forward to performances at our weekly closing camp fire before opening for week three at camp.
