On Saturdays, we get to sleep in an hour which is always a nice treat. After breakfast, we had a few classes before the non-counseling staff left for their day off. The groups that had speech made up stories using Story Cubes. In reading, the groups played UNO. It is always fun to do some different things on weekends.
Lunch was leftovers - this is always a favorite meal for campers and staff because we get another chance to have all the great food we had all week. We are blessed with wonderful cooks and if you go away from meals hungry, you are doing something wrong! We encourage the campers to try new things at meal times and we often see campers discover that they like different foods that they didn't think they would like.
After rest hour, everyone played a big game of kickball. Then it was time for swimming again. Dan's daughters came for a visit during swimming with his 5 grand kids - the little ones were a huge hit with many of the kids and there was a constant supply of entertainment for them as the campers offered to play in the sand with them, swim with them, or just make goofy faces, hoping for a smile! We took a break for Trading Post and then swam some more. Our new picnic shelter by the trading post is wonderful for sitting in the shade and taking a break with a treat.
Our evening activity was a movie. We watched Inside Out and many of the campers said that they really liked it. We also got some yummy popcorn and a caffeine free drink for our night treat during the movie.
It was a full day and I saw quite a few sleepy campers heading off to bed after the movie!
