Day 5 of Camp Kesem Augustana!
Hey Kesem families!! It is our last full day here at camp Today our rotations consisted of making sand art bottles, playing Nuke ‘Em/Volleyball, Gaga kickball, and an array of drama activities. As always, swimming was a huge hit with the kids and counselors alike. We just finished lunchtime, during which we had an impromptu dance party! Videos will be posted later. Also at lunch, as it was camper Rider’s 11th birthday, the Y Camp staff followed through with their birthday tradition singing aloud to him while he sat on the birthday chair. After rotations are finished this afternoon, campers will enjoy a Camp Kesem tradition- MESSY GAMES!!! Messy games include different events that involve the campers covering their counselors with various food products. We’re talking whipped cream, chocolate syrup, jelly, ketchup, mustard, the works! What more is there to being a kid than having a food fight?! After shower time, we will be practicing our acts for the upcoming talent show tonight that will take place after dinner. Some acts include singing, dancing, skits, and magic tricks! It’s sure to be a blast. After the talent show campers will attend an actually planned dance party to enjoy our last night here together. After that, the campers will again do closing circle, cabin chats, and get to sleep! Tomorrow’s good-byes will be bittersweet as we have all grown so close to each other. We look forward to reuniting campers with families at drop off! Though we won’t blog tomorrow, we will keep you updated we will keep you updated on all Camp Kesem Augustana news throughout the summer and beyond.
