June can be a quieter month, especially in the middle of the week . . . but the weekends!! We had tons of fun!
David and Frank have been working hard to get the snack bar up and running. Starting today, it’ll be open six days a week! I’m so excited, ’cause they’ll be scooping ice cream!
Black Raspberry is my favorite!! Yum!
Chinese New Year Weekend always kicks off our Summer Recreation Program. One of my favorite activities is noodle eating . . .
It makes for some messy, messy faces! Tami never lets me do it – cause she says it’s too hard to get out of my fur. Thank goodness she doesn’t say that about the ice cream!!
We had arts and crafts in June too. Look at these cool hats and fans we made last Saturday! We all wore them to the hayride . . . .
And we got some prizes.
These Chinese Finger Traps are tricky though!
I got to hang out with so many of my little camper friends!
One of my favorite activities is our story times in the office circle. Brooke read some pretty great books last week!
And then she made Moose Mix!! Mmmmmmmm!
We all helped her mix in all the ingredients.
And then shared the mix around the circle!
We had some face painting in June too! Turns out Brooke is pretty good at it! Soccer balls, cheering logos,
And . . . oh! How cute!! Even my name!!
This weekend we’ve got a campground full of campers and a recreation schedule full of fun!! C’mon – make your reservations!
WOW! What an awesome weekend!
There were arts and crafts, Chinese games in the playing field, Waterballoon Slingshot, a scavenger hunt . . .
A game where you move beans with chopsticks!
And a noddle eating contest too!
The kids even got the adults to try by twisting their arms just a little . . . .
We made cool Chinese New Year hats and wore them on the hayride. Maggie gave us some finger traps too!
Look at these two all decked out with their hats, traps and ribbons! Cool!
I just love hanging out with my campers! Both the young ones and the young at hearts . . .
Tami told me to stop being such a ham . . . I cut off that poor girls head in the photo! Maybe next time, I’ll yell “DUCK!” right before I do it . . .
Monday through Sunday, 9am to 3pm . . . and a 7pm event too, we have cool things planned like candy bar bingo, water balloon games, scavenger hunts, capture the flag, volleyball, bubble play, face painting, story time, ~ and much, much more!
Every weekend, the activities are themed. And we started off the season with Chinese New Year!
Maggie and Debbie slung water balloons in the rain, then moved the Chinese New Year games inside the Rec Hall
There was arts and crafts in the afternoon . . .
and jewelry making and horseshoes and a chinese noodle eating contest!
Here I am with one of my favorite girl scout troops . . .
And with camping buddies who were waiting to get on the hayride
everyone told me they were having a great time! I asked one little buddy what he liked best.
“It’s all good!” he exclaimed.
I think that says it all.
And want to know a great idea for a Father’s Day present? Camping! We do all kinds of fun activities – and parents are always allowed to join in. Like the scavenger hunt, or the relay races.
One of our favorite Father’s Day traditions is the Father/Child Horseshoe tournament. Last year, first place went to Erik and Tim (they’re on the right) and second place went to Jerry and Jerry (they’re on the left). They got cool medals and everything!
The weekend after that is going to be Chinese New Year! That’s a really fun weekend, too. Last year, we celebrated by making lion masks for good luck.
Wanna know what I heard? This year is the year of the rabbit!
We were busy, busy, busy last weekend!! Chinese New Year was a ton of fun!
Everyone seemed to be having a grrrrrr-eat time.
We made lion masks for good luck
and had a ramen noodle eating contest
There was bead making too!
Isn’t it pretty??
Horseshoes, volleyball, ceramics, storytime, a pool tournament, bubble play . . .
you name it, we had it!
Trash Bag Theater was a huge success too –
Alex and Bryant said every team created and performed amazing plays. Bravo everyone!
And look, I even got to hold some babies
Maxwell Moose for President!
The rain held off this weekend and my little camping buddies and I got to play in the sun. There were bean games, pool tournaments, adult bingo, bubble play, relay races and horseshoes. We made Dragon Hats
went on hayrides
we even played with chinese finger traps!
Some campers found time to pick water lilies!
Tami heard four different reports about how good the fishing was! They all promised to send in photos as proof, too. Tami’s gonna post them as soon as she can.
Saturday night, Tami told me I could stay up late and go to Trash Bag Theater. It was so much fun to see what my camping friends created for plays! One team chose to do a chase scene from Monsters Inc and the other play was narrated by Tinkerbell. They were both so much fun to watch!
I even got to do a little skit from the Little Mermaid!
It was so much fun! I want to do Trash Bag theater every time. Tami says, if I’m good, she’ll let me stay up late for the next one. So, I’ve got to behave!
Alex is already decorating for Fourth of July Weekend! We’ve almost got a full house . . . and we have lots of fun stuff planned ALL WEEK LONG!
I can’t wait!
I’m a little behind in my posting, time has flown these last couple of weeks!
Here’s some photos from Chinese New Year Weekend . . . notice the cool dragon hats!
This little guy can’t be bothered to look at the camera . . . he wants to get on the hayride!
