Series Finale

Hello everybody,

 

Today’s theme is the Series Finale!

It’s a bittersweet day for us at camp. This past week has been so much fun it’s hard to believe it is coming to an end, and what’s even harder to believe is that resident camp is coming to an end as well! We have learned so many things, we have made so many new friends, we’ve made new memories, and we’ve strengthened old friendships. Even though this is everybody’s last day campers and staff have already made it an especially great one!

We have been so fortunate to have another sunny day here at Camp Jorn which means lots of dry wood for the Friendship Fire!! Additionally, it meant an amazing last day of classes. Crafts modge-podged glass bottles with tissue paper, horsemanship played tag on horseback, and water-skiing was hard at work doing doubles, triples, even quadruples!

This afternoon we packed to leave tomorrow and collected wood for our Friendship Fire tonight! We also had a camp-wide block party during 3rd cabin activity. We busted out the giant tarp for a giant slip ‘n’ slide, the music was bumpin’, and the Popsicles were passed around! It was a great afternoon.

Finally, tonight is our last campfire of the summer so to commemorate all the fun times, fun people, and great experiences we had this past week as well as the entire summer we will be having a Friendship Fire. This consists of two parts, the first being a reflection in the amphitheater with all the cabins and staff. The second part is a giant bonfire under the stars in the middle of the field. This is a very special experience for campers and staff alike.

In the morning we will have some yummy homemade doughnuts and then be on our way home!

Hope everybody had a great day, we look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

Survivor Camp Jorn

Hi everybody!

Today’s theme is Survivor Camp Jorn!

The sun was out to play with us again today and we cannot be more grateful for all this nice weather! Classes had a great time both on land and in the water. Sailing sailed all the way into town for ice cream and back and water skiing did a triple pull with 3 skiers skiing at once! Awesome!

This afternoon we have lots of fun cabin activities planned! The tubing that got canceled yesterday due to a hole in the tube will now be going today, Cheyenne will be playing the hunger games in the yurt village, and many more!

Tonight for dinner we are all having cook-outs over the fire pit with our cabins! This will be so much fun, almost like cooking food on a trip but right here at camp!

Tonight’s campfire activity is the Sock Hop!! Campers and staff are ready to go to the club and dance the night away movin’ and groovin’ to some sweet music. It’s going to be a blast, and I better see everyone gettin’ their groove on!

Have a great day everybody!

Whose Line is it?

Hey everybody,

Today’s theme is ‘Whose Line is it?’!

We had yet another beautiful day today which started off a little differently than normal because we had breakfast outside! Sioux and Cherokee pulled a prank by bringing all of the tables and benches from the dining hall outside but we all enjoyed the crisp air and beautiful views.

Classes had lots of fun in the sun today. Crafts made dream catchers, sailing sailed around Fox Island, and swimming played a game of trivia where each wrong answer equaled jumping into the lake, fun, fun, fun!

This afternoon we had tons of great cabin activities. Cheyenne and Cherokee played human shuffleboard, Sioux and Iroquois played kickball, and Kickapoo even washed Katie’s car for her, how cute!

Tonight’s campfire activity is the Slime Show! In Camp Jorn’s version of the Slime Show we ask all of the cabins various trivia questions either relating to camp or the theme of the week, and for every right answer a cabin gets one camper may slime a staff member who is seated in the slime zone. This is a camp favorite for staff and campers alike. It’s going to be a great night!

Hope everybody had a great day, goodnight!

 

Red Carpet Hollywood

Hello everyone,

Today’s theme is Red Carpet Hollywood!

We had lots of fun in classes today! Wilderness survival learned how to start a fire, horsemanship learned to trot, and we even had some wake boarding today in Water-skiing.

No trips left today.

This afternoon was a blast full of awesome cabin activities. Lots of cabins spent time making some very creative signs for their booths at the bean carnival tonight and there was tubing, human shuffleboard, all sorts of fun stuff.

Tonight’s campfire activity is the Bean Carnival! For those of you who don’t know, the Bean Carnival is an event where each cabin makes a booth that offers a different service, such as massages or face paint. In order to “pay” for those services each cabin gets a bowl of dried beans that act as tokens, hence the name Bean Carnival. The campers are going to have such a fun time!

Have a great night everybody!

American Ninja Warrior

Hi everbody,

Today’s theme is American Ninja Warrior! Hiiiiyah!

It’s been a grey morning but no rain so far, so classes have gone off without a hitch! Speaking of, we’ve had lots of fun in classes today. Crafts made memory books, sports played soccer, and wilderness survival learned how to build a lean-to!

As for this afternoon, we have tons of awesome cabin activities planned. Iroquois is learning how to play quidditch, Chippewa is biking to get ice cream, and Cherokee is playing a game of messy twister, just to name a few!

Tonight’s campfire activity is going to be Wells Fargo! This is Camp Jorn’s special version of capture the flag and it is a favorite among campers and staff alike. We are so ready to get our Ninja faces on! Wooh!

Hope everyone’s having a great day!

Hello everyone!

This week’s theme is Reality TV, and today’s theme is Let The Show Begin!

All the campers have arrived safe and sound here at Camp Jorn and we are ready to have an amazing week! This is the last resident camp session of the summer and we are totally going to make it the best week of the summer!

After all the campers arrived and got settled in they went on a tour of camp with their cabins, took a swim test, and picked their classes for this week. Then the campers got to know the Camp Jorn staff in an evening of staff skits around the campfire.

We had spaghetti, red sauce, and garlic bread for dinner tonight, yum! The campers are so ready to have a fantastic first day tomorrow.

Hope everyone had a great day, and have a great night!
