Dear Chippies, Parents, Family and Friends,
Today was Gauntlet, which is an all-day Tan & White game that was invented in 2012. It is a surprise to campers as to which day Gauntlet will be held and they were all pleasantly surprised when the gong sounded at wake-up. Here are the highlights from today…
This morning, the campers and staff played a camp version of Bananagrams. Each age group (Braves, Hunters, Warriors and Chiefs) had a different theme that they had to create words for. This is definitely a game of both intellect and creativity, and both were displayed throughout the competition.
After Bananagrams, campers played “Spongebob Bucket Pants.” This is a game that was created at Chippewa and is so funny to watch. Campers hold a sponge in each hand and go on a slip and slide trying to gather water in their sponges. At the end of the slip and slide is a garbage can that they are trying to fill. It is a great team event and the weather was perfect for it.
The closing to the morning included a staff Quidditch game. Staff used swim noodles as broomsticks and played a game that very closely resembled Harry Potter’s main sport. The entire staff got really into it and campers were excited to cheer for their teams.
The afternoon consisted of a scavenger hunt and a game in which each age group had to take pictures of different scenes around camp. The neutrals, Jessica Swill and Alexa Polinsky, did a fantastic job of planning a day full of fun for all of Chippyland.
As you can tell, it was an eventful day at #CRC2014. Thanks for reading and have a lovely evening!
Happy Camping and Love,
