A miracle happened and the air conditioning came on (thank you!). Classes progressed as campers continued learning their dances, camp song and diabolo routines. In sports, campers learned the basics of volleyball, in arts and crafts younger campers made dough figurines while older campers made firecrackers, and in ID younger campers learned how to play Go/WeiQi while the older campers had a discussion on tiger moms.
The forecast again called for rain, so we postponed The Amazingly Awesome Amazing Race for a game afternoon and volleyball at night. At games afternoon, teams started by solving a mystery involving a stolen piece of art (it was Mr. Handsome because he’s a kleptomaniac. The briefcase and the dogs don’t matter…relax children). Then campers split up into their groups to engage in varying activities. Older campers played dinner party and salesman, while the younger campers played log tag and other games. Dinner party had campers act out different characters (eg an eskimo concerned about global warming, or a couple on their honeymoon) and then another camper had to guess who they were. Salesman had one person up in the front selling an unknown product. This person had to depend on the questions being asked by the rest of the camp to figure out what product he/she was selling.
After dinner, teams took the lessons from sports class that morning and engaged in our annual volleyball tournament. Those that did not want to participate either cheered from the sidelines or went swimming with staff. The Incredibles went two for two by taking both the Quidditch and volleyball titles. Afterward, campers and counselors squared off in an all-star match, which the counselors won…better luck next year, kids.
