Another great session at Camp Menzies. On Monday we welcomed our session 4 girls. This session we had Forest Friends, Sierra Safari, Camp Quest, Sky’s the Limit, and Horse Lovers. Of course we still had our Movie Makers, Master Chefs, Dare To Do It, and Arts Alive girls here at camp as well.
The Movie Makers worked on rehearsing and filming their scenes. Then Bones helped them with editing the movie. They showed the movie to the session 3 girls during a screening, and it turned out great! It was creative and really funny.
On Tuesday we had our All Camp event. This time Camper Council decided on a Camp Prom. The Dining Hall was decorated and staff was nominated for Staff Prom Queen and King, the CITs were nominated for Camp Princess. Everyone got really creative and dressed up in crazy outfits. It was a great dance party with face painting, friendship bracelets, cookies and fruit punch.
Sky’s the Limit and Camp Quest both went on a trip to White Pines where they got to hang out for the afternoon and swim. It’s been really warm up here so the girls really loved it.
Our Master Chefs have been busy cooking and baking with the kitchen staff, they’ve helped make dessert and snacks. They also did other activities with a little food twist. For example: They learned about the different phases of the moon using cookies. Fun and tasty!
For our session 4 girls it was a short session, but they really enjoyed it. Their days were filled with doing archery, swimming, canoeing, nature activities, and arts ‘n’ crafts. A lot of the groups also did badge and journey work. The Forest Friends even got two badges: Dancer badge and the Game Maker badge. Great job, girls!
Camp has been a great experience for the girls. Sarah “Bucky” from Movie Makers explained the magic of camp: “It is just a great place and there is so much to do, so many fun activities. Some girls get homesick sometimes but because of all the great activities they forget about it right away and at the end they don’t want to go home. It’s camp magic.”
Last night was our closing campfire. Today all the girls, both session 3 and 4, are going home. It has been amazing having you all at camp and we hope to see you again next year.
Have a great 4thof July weekend, everyone!
Until next time,
