Rain, Rain, go Away!

We started off with a sunny, humid day at camp where we got to play games such as huckle buckle, big ball soccer, gaga ball, and tether-ball. Today we especially wanted to point out how great everyone in the volleyball half-day program has gotten. Campers are learning and improving their volleyball skills as they get ready for their volleyball tournament this Thursday and Friday.

After lunch the camp was hit with a lot of rain but we stuck together playing with lego, running various games, and colouring under the shelter to stay dry. We later had a BIG dance party once the rain went away before we all went home. We can’t wait for tomorrow!

Week 7 Highlights and a Great Start to Week 8

Last week was one of our best! Pandas, Tigers, and Hawks had an amazing Harry Potter themed extended night to look forward to and the Mustangs and LTP’s had a fantastic overnight to look forward to!

During extended night all campers were sorted into houses seen in Harry Potter (Gryfindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff) and then had a cheer off where Slytherin and Ravenclaw tied for first! Campers also got to create potions and make their own wands; they all looked amazing! At the end the extended night staff performed an amazing Harry Potter song and it was such a great performance.

The overnight trip took place at the Camp Riverwood sister camp: Green Acres. Campers had the chance to do trust activities, learn leadership skills, do high ropes, and have tons of fun!

Today at Riverwood the sun was out and it was super hot so we had plenty of swim time; pandas actually went twice!
