It was carnival day today and that means a day full of fun, rides, inflatables, cotton candy, popcorn, dunk tanks and more. The music was blasting and a giant dance party broke out in the center of carnival. The happy mood here always allows for some great random dancing. It’s easy to do that here. There is a freedom to let go and let loose here and as we boogie down to the Riff Off from Pitch Perfect 2. When you see a sea of people dancing and singing just because, it just puts a smile on your face and you cant help but join in. Not only was it a great day but the T-shirt give away was a hit as well. Every camper and staff member was given a cool T-shirt that read – There’s no WiFi and Chenny But the Connection is Strong. Our campers have thrived for 19 days without surfing the web and their heads in their devices. They proudly wore the shirts as they were outside playing all day long.

It was hard for our athletes to step away from the fun at Carnival but boys side had a few to play

Collegiate Boys Basketball – CAW 34 @ Wayne 36

The fun continued into tonight’s evening activity with Wild and Wacky Races. We raced on hobby horses,  got pied in the face, played name that tune and giant word scrambler and of course, some of us got slimmed. It was just that kind of a day that we got silly, had fun and there wasn’t a worry in the world. When we think of the stresses that our kids have for 10 months out of the year with their crazy schedules, test pressures, college applications, running to practices and hebrew school, it is so nice that days like this exist for them. The best thing is watching our campers be free of stress as the biggest decision of the day is what toy to pick out as they cashed their carnival tickets in at the end of the day. It’s good to be a Chenny Kid!!
