Session 7A- Sunshine, Soccer and so much S’more!

The gates are open, and in come our campers for week seven! It’s a great week to be at Camp Friendship: we have our annual soccer game with Triple C as well as our second horse show of the summer. As always, we had our opening campfire on Sunday evening with some very funny acts from counselors and stayover campers. Junior boys created a skit called ‘The Interview’ which had everyone in fits of laughter!

Rise and shine campers! With over 35 activities on camp, our campers get to learn many different skills and try loads of new things. After a full day of free swim, snack bar, cabin time and five activity periods, you would think we’d be done for the night… not so! Our evening activities began – juniors had loads of fun with Slip N Slide and our seniors played Capture the Flag!

Soccer shirts, chants and banners at the ready! The 2018 Camp Friendship VS Triple C soccer match has arrived! Arts and crafts is busy today creating signs and flags for the game, our kitchen staff are preparing an all-camp cookout down at the lower fields and our soccer and dance teams are starting to get just a little bit nervous! Our day ran as normal up until 5:45pm, when we moved to the soccer field for the event everyone had been waiting for.

After eating our hotdogs and burgers, we welcomed Triple C onto camp and got settled ready to watch the match unfold. Both teams were phenomenal; the game had to go to extra time and then penalties! Right at the end, Triple C managed to score the last penalty and won the game. Our team were amazing, as well as our fierce dance team who performed the half-time routine!

Overall, a great evening was had by all and our campers are the best supporters in the world!

After all the excitement yesterday, we had some sleepy campers this morning! It was fluffy waffles and bacon for breakfast (there are definitely worse ways to start a day) and then off to Day three of activities. Everyone enjoyed resting up during cabin time and junior girls prepared decorations for this evening’s dance: ‘Glitter and Glow!’ Neon glow sticks, glitter face paint, even a handmade disco ball, Camp Friendship campers sure know how to light up a dancefloor!

Today our campers continued learning in their five activities, as well as spending more time with their newly-found friends during village time and free swim. The juniors got to dress up their counselors in ‘CF’s next top counselor’ using trash bags and imagination! Seniors moved to the gym and played Noodle Hockey variations, the hungry hippo round was a favorite!

Friday always brings mixed feelings to camp, we have loads to look forward to; our last full day of activities; finishing up projects we’ve been working on for the whole week and of course closing campfire. However, tomorrow means it’s time to go home and that can be bittersweet. Camp fire was certainly a great way to end week 7, we had glee perform ‘Titanium’, dance and drama showed us their amazing skills and lots of campers were getting up on stage to make us laugh out loud. It’s crazy how much we’ve squeezed into one week, hopefully we’ll see everyone next year for summer 2019!
