Today’s theme is Yggdrasil Connects All! In Norse Mythology Yggdrasil is the world tree which connects all living things together. Very fitting seeing as that tonight we will be burning the Friendship Fire to cap off this amazing week we’ve had all together!
It was a bittersweet day for all of us at camp. This past week has been so much fun, we have learned so many things, we have made so many new friends, we’ve made new memories, and we’ve strengthened old friendships. And even though today was the last day campers and staff made a great one!
Today classes were unfortunately canceled due to rain but we still had loads of fun with our rainy day activity, Mr. and Mrs. Camp Jorn. In Mr. and Mrs. Camp Jorn cabins dress up their counselors as a member of the opposite gender and these counselors participate in a “beauty” pageant, so funny! The campers had a blast dressing their counselors up in silly, crazy outfits!
Following that this afternoon our campers collected firewood for our friendship fire, packed up to go home, and then had their last cabin activity.
Finally, tonight is our last campfire all together so to commemorate all the fun times, fun people, and great experiences we had this past week 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!
