Okay, everyone! Now for day 4. If you want to read day 3, click here.
Day 4 – Wednesday
Third day of camp! Middle of the week, hump day, whatever you want to call it 😉 But it was an extra special day! 😀
How so? 🙂 It showed that we had lived past day 4? xD
Haha, yes, that too. But it was really special because I got to talk to Mrs. S, and during our conversation, she told me that one of my campers had accepted Christ into his heart the previous day. That just totally made the rest of my day! 😀
Oh, yes! They mentioned that during the morning devotions/talk. That’s really great. 🙂
Uh huh! SO happy!
You were a really good leader, B.:) But, praise the Lord that He opened that camper’s heart. 🙂
Aww…thank you for the encouragement, Liv! You were an amazing counsellor too 🙂 And yes, indeed, thank the Lord that He was able to work in his heart! 😀
So, that morning, after the morning talk/devos, we had chapel. Then it was crafts for Blue and Red teams, and the…
BOUNCY CASTLE!!! For Green and Yellow. Wait – wasn’t that Carnival Day?
Nope, it was Bouncy Castle and Carnival day! After the first chapel, it was the Bouncy Castle, then during the second chapel, the CITs and not-head counsellors set up their own games for Carnival. BUT, I am getting ahead of the story, so let’s rewind a little bit. 😉 😀
Hehe, ok. (by the way, we really should try and come up with a different name for the counsellors-that-are-not-head-counsellors 😛 I wonder, can we just call them counsellors?)
Sub-Counsellors? I guess so. 🙂
Okay, so now we know, the people who are neither Counsellors In Training nor Head Counsellors are going to be called Sub-Counsellors 😀
That sounds good! Anyway, we Green and Yellow teams went on the bouncy castles first, while the Red and Blue teams did crafts, which were..
The toilet paper mats and stars, wasn’t it? You cut the paper towel rolls into thin circles, and then glued them together to form anything you wanted. (sorry, I interrupted you again ;))
Oh, yeah, you might be right there! (No problem, that’s totally okay, 🙂
The creativity that day was quite interesting too! One girl made a gift box shaped ornament with her circle/ovals.
Oh really? Yeah, some of the kids are very detail-oriented and creative! So focused. 🙂
Actually that day there was this bee or wasp or whatever. Do you remember? I killed it. I smacked it over and over again… 😛 And another time before that, C was sitting in a chair, and he got stung!
Oh, the poor wasp 😛 Although it probably deserved it. There were a ton of wasps this year
Yeah! One of the campers got stung 3 times.. 😦
Oh, how awful! And didn’t Eric get stung twice or something?
Yeah, he did! I think this year was a year with lots of wasps and stings.
Definitely! You won’t believe how many wasps I hit. With my hand. *shudders* It doesn’t feel good 😛 Didn’t get stung though, thankfully!
Yeah, neither did I! 🙂 I have only been stung once, that I know of, and I sat on it when I was a baby/toddler.
Oh my. Poor you!
I don’t remember it. 🙂 Anyway. (Ha, yes. We get off-topic a lot 😛 But it’s so much fun ;)) The counsellors finally got their turn! Girls first!We jumped around like crazy ladies (okay, maybe)
Nah, we were very refined 😛 It’s not hard AT ALL to jump around and do somersaults while still looking very ladylike 😉
Oh, and mature, don’t forget that! xD
Haha, yes. Oh goodness, I’m laughing so hard now 😛 I’m remembering the time we all jumped and sat down at the same time and I ended up on my head xD
Oh, my, BC! How unladylike of you! xD This is so funny. 😀
Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. I’m literally laughing out loud right now, and my younger brother came up and asked, “What’s so funny?!” 😛 (I hope no one got a picture of that. Cause really, most awkward position to be in xD)
Yeah, well, they just might have! 🙂 Oh, and when we had to get out to let the boys go in, we all had to go down the slide, and campers were waiting at the bottom. I think Carrie or someone went down and they were like, “Go Carrie!” or whatever, and I go down, and it’s like a few people, “Olivia!” Oh well. 🙂
Hehe. Yeah. I don’t quite remember what happened when I went down. I think they clapped. Not sure why though :S
Yeah, I could be wrong as well, but any way. The boys did some pretty impressive stunts. L did a back somersault.
Show offs *rolls eyes* 😛 Yep, they did their best.
Haha, yeah. 🙂
After the bouncy castle, it was lunch time! 🙂 After we ate lunch, it was chapel time again, but this time, the sub-counsellors had to stay back to set up games for the carnival. When everyone pretty much had their games, I still couldn’t find what game to do. I ended up, with the help of my blue team friend, B, finally sorta made up a game. I had some batons and light plastic balls, and three buckets. The person would have to balance the ball on the top of the baton. The three buckets were in a row a couple of feet apart. The first bucket was worth 5 points, the second one 10 points, and the third one worth 15 points. You had to balance the ball on top of the baton and drop it into any one of the buckets. You got three tries.
Oh, right! I remember that game! It looked like super fun! And – all the people doing it looked super concentrated 😉
Yeah, the wind made it even harder. The ball was so light, sometimes it would just blow off.
Mm hmm. The balls were pretty light too. CIT’s and sub-counsellors were in charge of the games, head counsellors had the busiest time in chapel taking care of their team. But once Carnival started, there wasn’t really much to be done except watch 😉
Oh, you should have come by for a bit, and we could have chatted! Actually, I know that L asked you to take over her game cause she wasn’t feeling well.
Yes. I DID come over to your booth, to take pictures! I think I was able to get pictures of all the games. But then I just helped wherever I was needed 🙂 L’s game was quite interesting! As was Tiger Lily’s. L had a lot, and I mean a LOT of duct tape on her game. Was quite a struggle taking it apart 😉 And Tiger Lily’s was the one where you had to roll a football down a picnic table and into a bucket that was placed on the ground at the other end. Mr. T happened to place the table on a slant, so that it was quite hard trying to get the football into the bucket!
I actually didn’t try her game, but there was quite a contest at the end of the carnival! 🙂
Ohhhhhh yeah. THAT contest xD Quite interesting, I’ll admit.
We had snack? After that. Which was brownies, I think… icing….. 🙂
Oh yes! Actually, I think I have a picture from last year. Let me see if I can pull it up!
Yes, those brownies were soooooooo good!!
So were the cookies, even though I didn’t have any this year. 🙂 So, after the snacks was again, freetime. Some kids went on the bouncy castle, but some kids went into the forest to play capture the flag. It was red and green team against the blue and yellow team. But, not all of the green team was there, so we had fewer people. The first round, blue and yellow won, but the second round we kept the same teams, and we won! 😀 Mr. S. said there was more glory in winning with fewer people. (something like that)
Oh, well I’d agree with him! 🙂 And in my team’s defense, the campers really, really, REALLY enjoyed the bouncy castle xD That’s where they were during free time 😉
Yeah, I’d say it was definitely a highlight of the camp. 🙂
Yep. It’s a bouncy castle, what do ya expect? 😉
Lots o’ people bouncin’! 😀
Uh huh! Surprisingly, and thankfully, no one got seriously hurt. Or hurt at all, now that I think of it! 😀 After that, I believe that was the end of the day for camp.
Oh, don’t forget the water bottle dumping! 🙂 I think green won that day, and red lost.
No, Green won on Thursday. (but you weren’t supposed to know that until the next post :P) Green actually lost on Wednesday. Red won 😉
Oh, okay. 🙂 Interesting how fast the first can fall, eh?
Haha, yes, very interesting! I don’t think we talked about water bottle dumping for the previous posts. Do you want to enlighten the readers so that they know what we’re talking about, Liv?
Sure! At the end of the day, the winning team poured a bottle of water on one of the losing team’s counsellors OR Mr.T, C, or Tiger Lily. I never got a bottle of water dumped on my head, but L on your team did, right, BC?
Yeah, I didn’t get a bottle of water on me either. They all liked us too much, Liv 😉 And yes, my sub-counsellor got water dumped on his head the first day because blue won, and blue had Eric on it and he had something against L 😛 (whew, well that was a run-on xD)
Haha, yes! I have a story about the water bottle dumping, but that’s for Day 5. 🙂 Boys, are boys. 😛 😀
*sigh* Yes. I will never understand them 😛
ANYWAY, J from the red team spared green team from any more water dumping, and chose the game CIT, C, to pour ice-cold water on. Thank you, J 😀
Haha, yes. She did. 🙂
So, that wraps up Day 4, because I have to go now.
Yep! Nothing else, I don’t believe to write about for Day 4 now 🙂 See you all next time!
