This week at camp has been filled to the brim with wonderful, wonderful fun!
To recap our busy week, on Monday, the tribes began their month of competition with a game of Intermediate Basketball between the Creeks and Cherokees. The game was neck and neck the whole time, and the Cherokees pulled out the victory with a last minute three pointer! The final score was 20-21, and we all went to bed with hoarse voices from cheering! On Tuesday night, camp was entertained by the talent show, and Rachel Velasquez won the first place ribbon!
On Wednesday, we enjoyed some more tribe competition with an energetic game of Junior Kickball between the Chickasaws and the Creeks! The excitement in the gym was contagious, and the Chickasaws took home the win with a score of 18-13. The next night, the juniors spent the night in the woods, either at Phil’s Farm or at the overnight shelters, and the Intermediates and Seniors competed in an intense Lip Sync Battle! Each cabin chose a song, and choreographed a dance, with prizes for each age group in Best Choreography and Best All Around.
On Friday, our senior age group was invited to Alpine for the Senior Social. While they were there, the Intermediates played a game of Mission Impossible - a mission that ended up at the basketball courts with snow cones for everyone! That same night the youngest girls danced the night away with Elvis at our sock hop. To top it all of, Saturday afternoon brought the Camp DeSoto Olympics! The Chickasaw tribe took the gold, but every competitor went to bed feeling like a champion.
It was a busy week! Sunday brought a welcome day of rest, worship, cabin time, and a chance to reflect on the abundance we are living in. Jubilate Deo!
