We arrived at camp in time for lunch. Lunch with 400 middle schoolers is a loud experience and Aliza's eyes were pretty big the whole time. Lunch was quesadillas and chips which worked our for all of the children. Aliza loved the quesadillas and Josiah and Anna ate chips.
After lunch we walked around camp and saw all the different activities that campers can participate in during the afternoon free time. A zip line that ended in the bay, a huge swing called The Screamer, kayaking, tubing, sailing, swimming, ropes course, frisbee golf, a gym, game room, rock wall--the possibilities were almost endless.
Of course everyone wanted to see Uncle Joel's "house" so we headed up to his room and changed into swimming attire for the afternoon. We spent a good amount of time at the pool. An ice cream snack where Josiah loved the huge display of animal heads. There were leopards, polar bear, bears among others. Then we spent a good bit of time just watching the swing.
We stayed for the evening Club meeting. There was music, entertainment and then the Club talk. Basically a sermon. The children loved the music, thought the entertainment was scary and Aliza listened pretty well to the talk. The campers were dismissed to the outdoors to spend 10 minutes of quiet time with God. We kept shushing our children, told them to go give Joel a quiet good bye hug and then walked past 400+ kids sitting in the field quiet with God.
The kiddos changed into pajamas and we headed for home and had them tucked in their own bed right after midnight.
