You might be wondering what’s been going on around here ? As you may of heard we’ve had a spot of stormy weather in some of our evening periods, but that has not stopped us from having masses of fun ! I’m even tempted to say it has been more exciting, seeing campers laughing and screaming amidst the unpredictable weather ! Don’t believe me ? Grab a hair brush and have a sing song on the porch like some of our junior girls did last night ! (See below) Or just take a look at week sevens video update later this week .
In Thursdays evening activities seniors grabbed pillows, blankets, sleeping bags and anything else snugly before setting off to the dining hall to catch the remainder of The hobbit. This proved to be a great adventure movie to watch and seniors enjoyed the chance to spend some down time with their friends. On the other side of camp, junior’s took part in the pool olympics. After being split into teams the tasks included trying to make the smallest splash and most creative chant for their given country. As extra points were given for support and cheering the evening was full of energy.
Next up, let’s get out of the water for a moment and head over to stable activities where today Skye Ackenbom and the whole of riding camp displayed our second summer horse show. The sun came out just in time for the event. After seeing the level of professionalism and passion at the show ring from start to finish at our last show we have all been super excited to see the girls in action again. There were twenty four activities and campers were split into groups depending on experience and ability. Riders competed with admirable concentration as twenty four activities took place from ten till three. As a lunch time reward pizza is a well deserved reward for our riders ! We love you riding camp.
Around camp we are getting pumped for camp fire tonight. I even spotted a jigga in morning activities today. The jigga (which is one of our well known camp fire dances) was performed at Fridays Freestyle Mountain Boarding Class, where campers are encouraged to mountain board whilst mixing things up a bit with some hand gestures. In todays class we saw campers throwing in some robotic arm action and doing some seventies dance moves in keeping with Wednesdays dance theme.
That’s all for this week but don’t miss next weeks updates where you can check out the second summer return of a huge camp event and get the scoop live from the top of the beanstalk ! (All will be reviled.) as always, we thank you for being part of the camp friendship community and hope you are enjoying your summer wherever you may be !
