This past weekend has been crazy full of excitement. The sailing trip went out on Saturday morning and that night the rest of camp got to participate in one of my all-time favorite activities, Progressive Dinner. Basically we go to different houses around camp and they each serve a different part of our dinner. The next day was overcast and rainy so we decided to take everyone bowling in the afternoon.
To start off our dinner we went to the farmhouse owned by the family that opened Chop Point. There they had prepared us dumplings and lettuce wraps. They were delicious and after seconds a few of the guys got a game of ultimate Frisbee going on the back lawn. Some of the other campers attempted to teach our one of our guy counselors how to French braid hair. At first our French campers were really confused because they had never heard of a French braid. Once the braid was started they realized that it was the same as what the French call an African braid.
We then packed up and headed to another house nearby on the water for the main course, ribs. After dinner we all had a chance to hang out on the lawn and play some games. A few people carried on the braiding while others started a game of soccer and others just chose to hang out and talk and watch the sunset. Some of the campers made their way down into the reeds to fish. We headed back to camp for the final piece of the evening and enjoyed ice cream sundaes in the dining hall. It was a great time and everyone enjoyed the night to just relax and enjoy their friends away from camp.
The next day we got rained out, so after a beautiful chapel talk by one of our counselors and a few group games we all headed to Yankee Lanes for some bowling. We broke up into groups of 6 and each group bowled two rounds. There was a concession stand and arcade games and other fun things to enjoy. Some of the campers were really amazing and scored well over a 100. On my team three of the six got a strike on the first bowl! I was not one of those three…
Many more adventures coming up so keep checking back for more posts!
