OH ME OH MY! It’s been a busy few days…but they’ve been some of the most memorable too!
We’ve been having a great time in the sunny weather at camp, and to take advantage of that, on Monday we had Beach Day down at Swim. Everyone had Hawaiian leis and we had fruit smoothies and grilled cheese. And we got to listen to some great music while we all swam! I can’t think of a better way to spend the day at the beach!
Then just yesterday, camp was a little bit spookier as we had our annual Manitou Halloween. All day activities were making decorations, and campers and staff were working on their costumes in preparation for the big night. Once it was finally time, I couldn’t believe some of the creative costumes I saw! There were people dressed as traffic lights, some were unicorns, and I even saw a bunch of Mario Kart characters running around! Everyone was having an amazing time trick or treating and showing off their incredible outfits in the costume contest. But that wasn’t all! There was also a spooky Haunted House, a hay ride that drove all around camp, and a corn and hot dog roast! And as always, we ended the night with a Halloween dance, where we all danced together outside in our awesome costumes. Our campers get more creative every year and I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
And for a little extra Manitou content, please follow our new Culinary Arts Instagram @madeatmanitou. There will be recipes, pictures of the food we make there, and more!
Well I’m off to Volleyball where the Activity Head, Dani, is running an awesome three-on-three tournament!
