Session 7

Last week was our 7th session of the summer. The theme was Adventure/Safari. At the Monday night camp fire, a special guest arrived to help us sing one of the most popular songs this summer: "Have you ever seen a penguin drinking tea?" Here they are singing and turning around.

Venture Crew was also in camp session 7. Campers in this specialty program get to focus on lots of outdoor activities - cookouts, campouts, shelter building, camouflage and more. We had full groups of both boys and girls; this photo is the boys heading out for their two-night overnight.

In day camp, campers did lots of tie dye, swimming and were out playing games all over camp. They also enjoyed an exhibition show by a group of visiting agility dogs. And one cabin group participated in the "Service to Killoqua" program by washing Uncle Wigglebottom's cabin on a hot day.

The weather was pretty warm thoughout the week. On Friday, we all had popsicles - prizes for helping with the litter pick-up service project. Yum. Friday night concluded with Council Fire. In addition to unit contributions and other recognition, the CITs presented Charlie with her 10-Year ceremony, recognizing her 10 summers at Camp K.

And now we're in session 8! Check back next week for more details as summer camp wraps up ...
