We can't believe that week three has come to an end already! This summer is going by quickly as we are getting to spend our days getting to know your awesome kids. It's fun to watch kids come alive as they catch their first fish, hit their first bullseye, or start a fire on their own. The smile that lights up their faces is such a great moment!
This week, we had four camps. In the morning we had Into the Wild: Girls where campers learned to start fires, fish without a fishing pole, make a compass, and so much more. They had a camp-in on Wednesday night. They played Exploding Kittens and watched Up! In the morning, they made chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast and evaluated the shelters they would have slept in if the weather would have cooperated. We also had our biggest Fish On! camp to date in the morning. We had 24 fishermen and women this week! In fishing camp, campers spent lots of time learning fishing knots, casting, and of course, fishing. On Wednesday, campers played sharks and minnows and made the best of a rainy day. Campers also learned how to filet a fish and got to eat some really tasty catfish and walleye!
In the afternoon we had Basic Marksmanship camp. This week campers learned so much about safety that they could probably tell you the rules in their sleep! They played lots of games to show their improvement over the days. It is always so fun to see them leave with their target each day because their shots keep getting closer and closer to the bullseye. We also had Intermediate Archery in the afternoon. This camp was packed with games and challenges. They did a 3D animal shoot, mystery shoot, archery corn hole, and so much more! It was a week full of fun and prizes that helped campers enhance their archery skills.
We will be taking a break from camps next week to celebrate the 4th of July. We are building a float for the Canfield parade so make sure you come see us in the parade at 10 AM!
We are looking forward to seeing you all in two weeks for Week 4 of camps! The camps that are coming up are Camp .22, Game On!, Introduction to Archery, and Creative Outdoors. These camps still have room so grab your friends and register your kids today!
We are so grateful for your continued support in our ministry,
Thank you and have a blessed day (and 4th of July)!
