Banquet Day!!

Welcome Back followers of the Birch Blog!! Today was the first girls Banquet of the summer! We started the day off with Pixar Movie themed breakfast!! It was SO cool! Cabins came dressed as characters from Pixars, "Toy Story," "Finding Nemo," "Monsters Inc," "The Incredibles," and "Up".  They all had a short skit to go along with their outrageously funny and creative costumes.  Then the day started as usual with English Muffins, cereal, Maypo and hot chocolate. Then began an intense morning of swimming, boating, arts and crafts, and sports classes to finish the session off strong.

Dinner was tuna, egg salad, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with pickles and chips. Peach crisp followed this delicious meal before our Thanksgiving supper.  We had a different afternoon today in order to include a camp favorite: Pirates! We never got a chance to play it for evening program due to rainy evenings.  Campers are split into their green and white teams and search camp for their hidden treasure. Their other job is to get pirate guns (rags filled with flower). It's a lot of fun!

After the game, we had a general swim to beat the heat and then we got the lodge ready for Banquet.  Wearing their best green and white, campers arrived at the lodge for a fun night of singing, year awards, and a candlelight service. The campers are SUPER excited for thier last day tomorrow.  In preparation, they are staying silent tonight to reflect on the goodness of light and how these two weeks have affected them.
