Tonight is Spy Night! This is a truly epic game that the whole camp plays. Camper spies work with staff to develop ingenious ways to sneak into the Upper Lodge at night with hidden messages. Once the game ends, we all gather to see if the searchers can find the cleverly hidden messages (they have two minutes) and then wait to see if the spies themselves can retrieve their message in time (they have thirty seconds).
On Tuesday, we will be running some of our regular program, having our final cabin cookout and writing appreciations for each other.
Wednesday is Harvest Day – the whole camp will pull together to pull, wash, weigh and prep food from our garden. That evening we have “Dreams Night.” Near the lodges, we make small boats and paper hot air balloons to symbolically release some of the things that we feel have been holding us back.
Thursday will be a chance to finish up projects – we are looking to finish siding the new Big Lodge cabin and complete the stone steps on the path to Meeting. In the evening we will have a meal that is harvested entirely from our gardens, as well as our final Council Fire with skits and the beading ceremony.
Friday brings our final preparation for Saturday’s Fair and also for our own Banquet, where we transform the Upper Lodge into an unrecognizable palace of sorts.
I hope that gives you a bit of an idea what the campers will be doing over the next few days.
About packages, there isn’t much need to send them now, and if you were planning to ship in some goodies, please refrain. Food in the cabins is a problem, as is too much sugar! Cheers.
