The day started out bright and early at 7:00am with Polar Bear Swwiiimmm! We had 18 campers join us, while it wasn't freezing it was really fun. With a new camp comes new activities. This morning we also offered running (4 campers participated) and yoga (12 campers participated). It was a active morning!
After breakfast the activities crew led a new game that was donated by Archerytag.com. Archery tag combines archery and dodgeball (safely, we promise!). It was a big hit with the older campers. Today a small group of campers started building Ukulele's. They began assembly today and in the next few days they will finish their designs, decorate them, and begin to play. We will keep you updated on their progress. We also built a mini recording studio here at camp and started making a recording of the camp song. Each cabin will get to write additional verses of the song with things that they think make Indian Summer Camp so special. It should be really neat when it's all finished.
After working up an appetite we enjoyed lunch donated by Mark's Feed Store. The BBQ really hit the spot! The afternoon was busy with swimming, arts and crafts, basketball and a visit from the Kona Ice Truck. Dinnertime rolled around and we had chips, queso, tacos and Mexican rice. After dinner the band Black Friday preformed a concert in the pavilion. They where really good and both the campers and the staff had a great time dancing and singing along. Right now we are getting ready for bed. Cabins 1 & 2 are camping out tonight by the creek and making s'mores. Each cabin will get the opportunity to camp at the lower field one night this week. Tomorrow we are off to Champs in Lexington for rolling skating, lazer tag, and games.
Good night from Indian Summer Camp!
