YAHOO! We had such an exciting evening at camp last night, I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
All of our campers had Cabin Activities, which is where their counsellors plan fun activities for them, and then they all went off to bed early (or for an ETB as we call them here)! Except it wasn’t an ETB at all!
Soon after, they were brought out of their cabins to see our 2021 CITs perform a skit as an intro to their big program they plan called Midnight Madness. In this skit we learned that the CITs had all been shrunk in “Manny I Shrunk the Kids” and now all of us were tiny! When we went to the event, we saw murals and decorations of normal sized objects that had grown to massive sizes! It seemed as if we really had shrunk!
There was so much to do inside too, with tons of different games and activities set up and run by the CITs, and lots of foods that are camp favourites like mozzarella sticks and chicken nuggets. I saw all the campers, and even staff, having a blast at the booths and smiling and laughing the whole time. It was a bit of a late night for everyone, but it was one that will give us lifelong memories.
We are still in the midst of our Community Week at camp, and lots of activities have been raising money for our chosen charities this year. Plus tonight is our annual Walk of Hope, a highlight of Community Week here at Manitou.
I’ll tell you all about it tomorrow, but for now I’m off to watch the 2021 Manitou Martial Arts Tournament!
