It’s Chai here, the KMK Crafts Programmer! We’ve been super busy here at Kee-Mo-Kee during our Top Secret Mission Week. On Sunday we played a Survival Game where campers learned how to make their way around camp, running away from the “prey”. We also played Glow in the Dark Flags for Night Game! On Sunday and Monday it was a Top Secret when and where we were going on our big Adventure Week Out Trip. Everyone thought that we were going on Tuesday and Wednesday, but there was an even bigger surprise waiting! On Monday we had Monday Madness and completed a Top Secret Mission to gain the most points out of all of the cabins. The campers then received a secret envelope with a picture of our Out Trip Site and a packing list. Instead of Out Trip being Tuesday and Wednesday it was actually on Monday and Tuesday! It was an exciting half hour where everyone packed up their stuff to go to an unknown location! After loading the buses we ended up at Fanshawe Conservation Area. Out Trip was a blast! We all slept in tents and the campers had so much fun in the pool. We even made quesadillas over the fire for dinner! We played keep-up with Glow Sticks in balloons and then the campers ended up throwing the glow sticks across the field, which was my favourite part! It looked fantastic with all of the awesome colours flying through the air! On Tuesday morning we went canoeing and kayaking and made burn bracelets. Canoeing and kayaking were so much fun and the campers in my canoe were very good at paddling and steering. We got splashed a lot by other canoes but that made the canoe ride even more fun! We left our Out Trip Site on Tuesday at 2:30 after roasting hot dogs on the fire. Once back at camp we had Sloppy Joes for dinner and then played a Night Game called Mission Impossible with flashlights.
Today we have a day of regular rotations led by each programmer. In Sports the campers played Gaga Ball, which is always a lot of fun! At the pool the campers did an obstacle course and they played extreme leap frog. In Nature the campers played Extreme Camouflage in the forest. In CV the campers wrote Mission Impossible letters about the future. In Crafts we are doing Tye Dye with Tye Dye Chai! The t-shirts and other Tye Dye designs are really neat; the campers are doing an awesome job with Tye Dye!
Later today we are going into the forest to do Low Ropes. Tonight we have a Movie Night, and the movie that we are watching is a Top Secret! Tomorrow is our Extreme Creek Stomp where we get to go in the Creek and the Mud Pit!
The staff at KMK hope that you have an awesome week, and we will see you on Friday!
Over and Out,
