Today was the first full week of Camp Jabberwocky! Oh wait, it was just the first full day, but we packed so much into it that it could easily have been a week!
We woke up this morning to the calm, earth-shattering clanging of JoJo and the Jeanne Campbell Camp Bell, tried to juggle everyone’s morning bathroom routines in the cabins, ate some deeeelicious berries and cereal, then headed off to the first classes of the summer!
This year, we decided it would be a great idea to have a fully functional archery course at Camp! And it sure was a great idea, because we’ve done the Color Games for the past few years and now we’re ready for the Hunger Games this year! Hope that’s a joke!
We also had some classic classes like the ever-popular art, pottery, sports, and dance classes!
Our co-blogger for the first couple weeks, Scott, went around to a few classes and snapped some pictures for ya. Thank youuuuu Scott! Here’s some pictures of Scott planting flowers with his feet and ringing the bell, followed by some beautiful portraits he took of friends.
After classes, we washed the clay and dirt out from underneath our fingernails then immediately grabbed some pizza bagels that the lunch crew made! Then we had a miniature food coma and loaded up for the BEACH.
The beach was sunny and sandy, the water was cold and crabby, and it was all wonderful. So many people started working on their base tans and lounging in some of our many floatation devices.
After the beach, we showered, enjoyed another delicious meal by Michelle and Bella surrounded by friends, then quickly turned into frenemies as we began an epic challenge night! What’s challenge night, some of you might be thinking? Well, Patty’s sister JoJo, challenge night is when campers and counselors can challenge each other in front of the whole camp to any kind of competition, including arm wrestling, silly hat wearing, dancing, joking, and even making animal noises!
Skye challenged JoJo to a barf-holding-in contest (no real barf was created or projectiled for the making of this contest).
After that we scooted off to bed to get ready for another busy day of adventure tomorrow.
