Thursday of Hawaiian Week
Today has been such a fun day at Catholic Youth Camp. We started the day out celebrating mass as a community since today is a Holy Day- the Feast of the Assumption, which made today extra special! Father Bob, who has been a decades-long supporter of CYC joined us and helped us kick off the day as a community that not only PLAYS together, but also PRAYS together! After that, we had some fun cabin activities and then it was time for the FANTASTIC TALENT SHOW! The list of campers signed up for the talent was so long, as our campers this week are so talented in song, dance, and skits. There was dances, songs, and some comedy as well!
Lunch was hot dogs, mac and cheese, fruit and salad.
Dinner was pot roast, mashed potatoes, carrots and salad, with chocolate cake for dessert.
At the end of the bead ceremony, campers were given the opportunity to add leaves onto our C Tree. Each leaf represented an act that revealed community, charity, courage, cooperation, or Christ here at camp. These acts were seen in campers throughout the week. This tradition gave campers the chance to offer thanks and love to their new friends, friends that played a role in bringing them closer to The Cross this week. The bead ceremony provided for a wonderful last evening together as we commemorated an amazing group of campers who will carry the legacy of CYC’s five Cs out into the world with them.
It’s been such an awesome first week and we are sad that the campers are leaving tomorrow. We are happy to still have a full morning ahead for many fun things!
Tomorrow our closing program will begin at 1:15. The bus will depart camp by 2:15 and should be back to Roseville around 5pm. Remember to leave your 4 legged friends at home when you come to pick up your camper! See you tomorrow!
