Today is our very last Lazy Day for summer 2018 (Violins are playing in the background as tears well up in our eyes.). Our campers slept in for some much needed rest and then we had a big brunch at 10:30am. We also offered an option 8am breakfast for our early risers.
For Lazy Day, Groups 1 & 2 went to the bowling alley in Binghamton for a fun day of rolling heavy balls down narrow lanes to knock down pins. 😉 Our younger kids also had fun playing laser tag, bumper cars, a flying ride that no one seems to be able to describe well to me, and the kids had snack food galore.
Groups 3 & 4 went to see Ant-Man and the Wasp. They had a relaxing afternoon at a local town watching this movie while enjoying popcorn, candy, and a drink. Don’t worry; we limited their junk food intake so as to not overdo it. So far the feedback has been very positive about the movie. The kids say they really enjoyed it.
Today we woke up to warm temps and partly sunny skies after having some rain hit us late last night around our older kids’ curfew. We had some rain during the day while everyone was out of camp but they were all indoors so they probably had no idea it even rained. The skies are mostly cloudy now but there isn’t any threat of rain until possibly much later tonight.
Tonight for dinner we will have a cookout. We’ll serve hamburgers, veggie burgers, and hot dogs along with all of the trimmings. We’ll also serve a delectable baked dessert and watermelon to top it all off.
Tonight’s evening activity is GROUPS! Here’s a breakdown of it all: GIRLS: Group 1- lil sis/big sis (with girls group 4); Group 2 & 3- messy twister (a fan fav- kids get filled with paint on a huge life-size twister board and it turns into a fantastic photo session); Group 4- lil sis/big sis (with girls group 1): BOYS: Groups 1 & 2- Star Wars (2 staff who are former campers wrote a Star Wars play that they’d like to perform for the boys); Group 3- gaga (surprise,..not!); Group 4- dodgeball (another shocker, huh? Hey, it’s what the boys want to do!)
Because today is Lazy Day, there’s no special feature slide show. I’ll make it all up to you tomorrow when we resume our majors/minors once again. Until then, ILCUTHERE!
