SPLASH campers kicked off their week, the Beulah way, with a pool party! The campers jumped right into making new friends and getting to know their counselors. Each team had their first opportunity to work together, by participating in swim races. After having tons of fun swimming around in the pool, the campers all hopped into the four foot portion of the pool and made a GIANT whirlpool!
After the pool party, the campers changed into dry clothes and split up into their counseling groups. Each of the teams went to the snack shack and then worked on their team name and cheer. Kissy Miller’s team “Kissy’s Hershey Kisses” got really creative as they worked together to create their team cheer!
The SPLASH campers ended the night with the sunset service and the MIX! Slash II campers said it was the best MIX ever! Rapper Nasa really got the campers pumped as he performed the Surf’s Up theme song. After an awesome concert, campers were encouraged by David Trainer to dive right in this week! After watching a clip from the Matrix, Campers where challenged to make a choice between the red M& M and the blue M&M. Choosing the blue M&M meant choosing to have a week at camp filled with fun, but choosing a red M&M meant choosing to have a week at camp that was filled with God (and lots of fun too!). It was so amazing to see each of the kids reach for the red M&M at the end of the night.
While the splash campers were diving in, Boot Camp Campers were getting tough! The Boot Campers started off with a challenge on the beach. They moved from the beach to the woods where they spent the night. The counsellors prepared a scavenger hunt, and the Boot Camp campers had to work for their tents.
