It was a brunch wake up today and we all LOVED the extra sleep. After our lazy sleep-in morning, it was off to the Carnival for one amazingly fun day. There were dunk tanks, carnival games, water slides, cow milking, inflatable obstacle courses, snow cones, cotton candy and so much more. The highlight at today’s carnival was without a doubt the Gaming Truck we brought in and the giant Foam Pit Party. Our campers were diving into the foam, jumping around and getting covered head to toe with loads of bubbly fun. It was by far the campers favorite today. It’s a camp tradition to give away Carnival T-shirts on this special day and this years was a huge hit. All our campers were proudly sporting the coolest carnival T-shirt to date. They looked fly and camp looked completely in synch with everyone wearing their Carnival shirts!
The Carnival wrapped up at 4pm but at around 3:45 it was a downpour and there wasn’t a camper or staff member who wasn’t dancing in the rain. We got soaked and it was so much fun. When is the last time it rained and you just stomped in puddles looking to jump into them? When it rained so hard you just laughed getting soaked form head-to-toe and didn’t care for a minute how wet you were or how soaking your sneakers were. That was how our carnival ended today, with everyone drenched and everyone loving it!!!!
It was a fantastic night of Deal or No Deal for our Cherokee and Mohican campers as they vied for great prizes. Everyone was on the edge of their seat watching the board and hoping to keep the good prizes in play. The campers were loving the excitement of our own favorite game show hosted by our beautiful CIT girls. Our Navajo campers had their own fun with an awesome night at Fiddle Lake, chilling out with a campfire on the beach. They relaxed and chilled with friends, ate s’mores and had a blast. The sunset was spectacular and it was an absolutely perfect night at Chenny.
It was a sweet day and now sweet dreams for your children and only 2 more days until you all come to camp and see where they have been thriving all summer long.
