We apologize for the delayed blog post from Wednesday, however Mother Nature had plans that we weren't aware of and we had a power outage. But prior to that we had a great day!
Here's a recap:
We had the awesome Capes for Courage out and every camper got to make their own super hero cape. The Therapy Dogs also made a visit out and put on an agility show. In addition, every camper had a "Flashes of Hope" photo session.
A delicious chicken lunch was provided by Kyle Kuric, who also visited with the kids and shot some hoops- THANK YOU KYLE!
After lunch, we alternated between Arts & Crafts and Swimming. We also had a few special visitors: Josh "Jorts" Harrellson and Darius Miller, former UK basketball players came out to visit. In addition, an amazing Ice Cream Sunday Bar.
BIG THANKS to St. Patrick's Church who provided a lasagna & spaghetti dinner. It was GOOD!!!
Unfortunately, our Bazooka Ball game was cancelled due to weather, but we made the most of the night with a bonfire. Don't fear- we rescheduled Bazooka Ball for Friday morning.
Everyone must be getting tired as the week goes along because our Polar Bear Swim numbers have been dwindling...we were down to just 64 this morning. But most of those are still in the running for the Polar Bear Swim medal if they continue to go every day.
After breakfast, we participated in Archery, Fishing, lots of Arts & Crafts, and Swimming. The graduating campers headed to Bluegrass Indoor Karting for go-cart racing action.
Raising Cane's generously donated a scrum-didly-umcious lunch- THANKS Raising Cane's.
This afternoon, we were lucky enough to have the Iron Order Motorcycle Crew visit and give out goodie bags AND SnoWhat Snowballs (shaved ice) came out- YUM! Plus, we still packed in lots more swimming and Arts & Crafts.
Robert Thurman & Friends spent the entire day at camp making Steaks, Pork Chops, and Baked Potatoes on the big smokers for our dinner.
A big group went on an evening hike and then we headed to our closing campfire. At the campfire, we had some hilarious skits, songs, trivia, and a graduation ceremony for our graduating seniors. We have been so lucky to have them at Indian Summer Camp and hope they come back as counselors.
Everyone is now getting tucked into bed so they can rest up for our last full day of camp fun tomorrow.
Good night to all from Indian Summer Camp!
