Our first blog post! Woot woot!
As we are preparing for the upcoming sessions, we celebrated our past fall session with a make up camp-out this weekend (our previously planned dates were rained out). Both nights consisted of many EPIC games of Capture the Flag, s'mores and scary campfire stories!
5th-7th: Friday night
Our 5th-7th grade camp-out on Friday was tons of fun! Some highlights from the evening were Alex Black's terrifying fast crawl, the Wisnom's sheet cake (YUM!) and nighttime Capture the Flag! In the morning, Ka'imi, one of our JCs, taught us ancient Hawaiian Makahiki games. We had the Mana Masters, Team Joseph, and Team Bobmoa competing for the first ever Makahiki cup for spear throwing. The Mana Masters executed a sneak attack that surprised us all!
3rd-4th: Saturday Night
We were very proud of the 3rd and 4th graders who arrived on Saturday and helped to put up the tents and set up camp! One of our main goals is to learn and practice self-efficacy, and seeing Wild Kids who packed their own clothes and mess kits was great! We played possibly the longest Capture the Flag game in Wild Kids history, lasting close to an hour before Ryan Lindell made the winning run! Right before bed we enjoyed a beautiful silent night walk under the full moon.
The icing on the cake was celebrating Giovanni's birthday with a marshmallow-rice crispy treat- brownie creation! Giopunny? I think yes.
