We all gathered at the flagpole this morning but wait, something is amiss…the flags are already up. In a state of confusion, we lowered the flags – and so began BACKWARDS DAY!
The day started as all good meals end…with dessert. We enjoyed waffles, ice cream, fruit, and toppings – along with our regular oatmeal and cereal options. We then went to Jill’s Place where we sang the Goodnight Song and had our evening activity of Theater Sportz! Following, we had our activity periods in reverse order – 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1.
We had clean-up time in the evening, flashlight time in the morning, breakfast for dinner and we raised the flag before going to bed. We dressed backwards, spoke backwards, and I even saw a golf cart riding through camp backwards.
One of the best activities I saw today was at the pool. The campers were giving the staff mermaid training (AKA instructional swim). Not only was it fun, but it was actually quite a learning opportunity. Hearing the campers using swim vocabulary really showed how much these campers have soaked in this summer.
And as we get on our pajamas and got ready for wake-up time, it is hard to believe that week #4 is coming to a close…
