Today we welcomed AC 3 and SBTW 2 campers! The campers poured in the gates excited to see their friends and to get their bunks. Running hugs, chest bumps, and high fives were shared as camp friends and families were reunited. Settled in their cabins, the campers played all camp games led by Shelby and Mason. Eric taught us the pool rules and we then proceeded to the swim test. A dip in the pool felt nice but afterwards we were hungry and ready for some camp food. We had delicious hamburgers in the Deer Dome because it began to rain a little bit. But it was a wonderful time and the campers had the opportunity to get to know their cabinmates a little better.
As the sun set and the lightning bugs speckled the air, the rain had stopped but brought a very cooling breeze. It was a perfect summer night! The campers were indoctrinated to another summer of camp at Spikes Hollow through our wacky rules skit with DJ Kevy Kev and Bear Tribe Initiation. Papa Bear wrapped up the night telling the campers about the summer theme, Press On!!.
