We cannot believe the summer is almost over! But oh what a summer it has been! This week definitely flew by, but the last day for the week sure has a lot packed into it! Bear comp, pizza, pool parties, s’mores, and much more.
The Amazing Race started off with a bang! Kimmy’s Kabin and St. Elmo did inner tube races in the pool. The next stop in the race was scooter races in the Deer Dome with Almost Heaven and Brittney’s Bunk. The sponsors were then off to the Baseball field so that the girls of Raccoon’s Corner could run the bases. The Frisbee toss was next with Ladies Lodge. The LIA ladies were next in the race at Archery Tag. Hedgehog Home was waiting down at the river for kayak races. The sponsors came running down the field and they were neck and neck. Cor Cabana was next in the race with the water bottle relay. Down the gravel road were the men of Telluride Trail who were ready to weave through the Mountain Scooter path. The girls of Trinity’s Treehouse were at the Wet Hair Relay. They had to fill a cup with water that they wrung from their hair. The last leg of the race was the Gauntlet! We have a new and improved Gauntlet this summer with giant wooden spools and other cool obstacles. Sarita Casita and Mt. Elbert were our first campers of AC7 to try it out and it was a huge hit! It was really an Amazing Race. But who won?! We must wait until tomorrow at Closing Ceremonies to find out!
PIZZA PIZZA PIZZA!!! The only meal we release thirds and fourths for. It’s seriously that good! This year we even have new multigrain crust for our pizzas, making Alma’s homemade pizza even more delicious. Sarita Casita and Mt. Elbert were the winners of Cabin Cleanup this week so they had the privilege of preparing their own personal pizzas with Alma. As we released for thirds all the campers began to chant “We! We We! We Want The Cook!” Alma came out of the kitchen and all of camp gave her a Standing O for her delicious food!
After Team Meeting, we headed down to the Shoe Tree and watched this week’s video! Everyone was excited to relive the best week of their year. Next up on the agenda was S’mores! All the campers had a chance to roast their very own mallow over our campfire. We sang songs and hung out with our new friends. Papa Bear then handed the mic over to the campers and allowed them to Say So. This is a chance for the campers to express what God revealed to them this week.
This was a beautiful end to a wonderful week at camp! AC7 is now in the books!
See Ya Later!!!
