Good afternoon, Camp McGovern! It's sunny again this afternoon and a little humid. We had some light rain this morning, but an umbrella held over my camera fixes everything.
The campers played Dodgeball on the soccer field before we had a lovely Opening Campfire on Sunday night, with Pines coming out the winners. It was a good thing too, considering Groot was wearing his "coach" outfit. Imagine every gym teacher's wardrobe ever and that's basically what he wears for that costume.
Monday kicked off with the first round of Activities and a very rousing game of Capture the Flag. I still have a smile on my face every I see my Green Lantern and Superman flags from 2013 being used. I'm surprised they haven't been lost in the forest because someone hid them too well or that the sticks haven't broken. I'm pretty sure the sticks they are taped to are the originals. We had to close the office door because the game was so loud Linoleum could barely hear anyone he talked to on the phone.
Twist has been busy teaching a whole whack of campers how to do Cat's Cradle and it's really awesome to watch them teach their friends once they learn all the sequences.
Twist went to Canoeing with a young friend and his sister; she was in the middle of talking to Linoleum when he came into the office and said: "Yo, but it's time for Canoeing!" While they were on the Pond he looked down and went "hey a turtle!" before scooping it up. His sister was not as impressed with it as him.
Spinach and Linoleum spent second period prepping tie-dye, and while Spinach went out to run errands with Ohana Strum led boys camp in making their t-shirts. This is our second last week of tie-dye masterpieces this summer and I have no doubt that they'll be some more amazing results.
Linoleum and Spinach have been sporting Shawn Mendes swag since the weekend when they saw him in concert and the office has been full of Shawn's music. While they were mixing tie-dye Linoleum put on a shirt over top to protect "Shawn." And it's a good thing Spinach changed her shirt because the one she wore got a red splotch and a big blue one.
Bambi sent me this photo of the LEADs having lunch together in the Activity Forest last weekend and it didn't make it to one of the earlier posts, so I still wanted to share.
Well, I'm going to go enjoy the afternoon sunshine. The staff are busy running after campers in Activity 3, and there's a rumour going around that Veto is working on a secret project other than videos for Camp. I can't wait to see what it is, if it is a thing. I said nothing.
