Wow! There was so much fun stuff going on during Medieval Weekend, I almost couldn’t do it all!
But my little campers did!
We had ourselves some target practice with the catapult Ben built in Boyscouts. That was lots of fun!
There were viking ship races, a treasure hunt, ferrier fetching (which is a very fancy medieval way of saying “horseshoes”) and a scavenger hunt.
We also played a bunch of medieval field games . . .
like jousting with noodles!
You know what? Tami wouldn’t let me try the porridge eating contest. I stamped my foot (hoof?) and crossed my arms and pouted for hours and hours. She only shook her head and said, “You’ll never get it out of your fur.”
Maybe she was right. But don’t tell HER, I said that.
Debbie and Maggie had the campers make Robin Hood hats and princess crowns at Arts and Crafts. There was shield making too! Isn’t this one well done???
He looks ready to march into battle!
And speaking of battles, this group of five put on an awesome sword fight performance, right before the hayride.
First, Bryant arrived, telling Maggie he was back to claim the recreation program as his own. Of course, Maggie refused . . .
Just when it looked like Maggie might lose the battle . . . Ben rushed onto the scene and it became 2 against 1.
As you can imagine, that didn’t sit too well with Bryant! So he asked for volunteers. After turning down a dancer (who I thought might have been a good distraction), he found a willing participant
who just happened to be dressed in medieval garb, and be carrying a couple of daggers. Gee! Bryant was lucky to find him, huh??
They battled long and hard . . .
aaaaaand . . .
you’ll just have to watch for the YouTube link we’re gonna post here soon, if you want to see how it all turns out! We’ll show it start to finish! It was awesome! Bryant choreographed the whole thing! Thanks a bunch Bry!
I practiced my sword fighting skills too, you know. Still, this guy beat me with one hand tied behind his back. Sheesh! I’m gonna have to ask Bryant to give me lessons.
You never know when I’ll have to rescue a damsel in distress!!
Although . . . you know . . . now that I’ve seen Maggie’s sword fight skills . . . she’ll probably be the one saving ME!
Saturday night, Markus and Angelique from The Magic of the Steelgraves, performed some amazing magical tricks for the whole campground! They juggled . . . they lit things on fire . . . they made a chicken appear . . . they ate doves . . .
No wait, that last one was just a trick. Honest. They didn’t really eat them. It just looked like they ate them. Aw geez, you’ll just have to see it for yourself next year! You’d never believe it!
