This past weekend we had our May Long Weekend Camp. This camp ran from Friday May 20 until Monday May 23. We had a full camp with over 50 campers and lots of our enthusiastic staff taking part in all the fun.
During our weekend camp, campers have the chance to experience all the fun of camp packed into a shorter time span. It's a great way for campers who are nervous about being away from home to try out camp. Campers get to take part in many of our regular camp activities such as morning watch, themed meals, games, nature, crafts, Christian Education (C.E.), passport sessions, evening games, campfires and much more.
This year campers got to take part in lots of extra special activities to go along with our weekend theme. The theme of the weekend was "Roo's Clue's" which meant that much of our weekend activities had mystery themes. This included meals such as mystery challenge meal, guess who, clue, and mystery draft. On top of this campers got to work with their cabin throughout the weekend to try and earn clues towards solving a camp mystery. Upon arrival campers were informed of a tragedy that had occurred on Friday at Camp Tanner; Fred the Moose had been stolen! It was up to the campers to try and determine which of our staff had stolen Fred the Moose. To do this they had to earn clues by winning different things throughout the weekend. They then used these clues to eliminate staff from their list until they were left with just one suspect. In the end Sharkbait and his campers in cabin 6 were successful in determining that it was none other than Bubbles who had taken our beloved Fred. Good job cabin 6!
Overall, the weekend went very well. We hope all our campers had as much fun as we did. We also hope many of them will be signing up to come back and see us this summer for more fun. Special thanks to our directors, Lutz and Slugger, for all their hard work planning and running this weekend. Also thank you to all our counsellors who gave up their long weekend to be with us. As well, thank you to our housemothers who do so much for us both at camp as well as planning and cleaning up from camp. To all who made the weekend great, thank you very much!
See you all this summer,
