These are special days. Despite the oppressive heat, energy levels are strong and each day brings a fun and unique activity. On Wednesday, we played the ever popular C-Flag. The scheduling of the game is always a surprise for the campers. On Friday, we played our own version of Hide-and-Seek, called Grandaddy Gorilla where the counselors go and hide and the campers seek them out for points. We followed this up with our second half talent show. Today, Saturday, was another hot one, but the special events kept things exciting, with our annual T-Hoops 3 on 3 competition this afternoon, followed by our annual Point Cookout with the traditional chicken, corn and buttered bread.
On Sunday, we will have our final Chapel service of the summer to ground us in these final days, followed by our last Council Fire. It promises to be another great day at Timanous!
On Sunday, we celebrated our second annual World Culture Day. I hope you enjoy this summary from Senior Counselor Kellen Rooney.
Yesterday we had our annual culture day at Timanous which celebrates the many countries and cultures that make up our community at camp! This includes meals from different cuisines, language classes, and activities taught by campers to their peers and counselors.
We started the day by walking into the barn and seeing the flags of all the different countries strung up in the rafters. From Japan to Germany, over a dozen countries were represented and celebrated.
The three meals of the day were all inspired by non-American cuisine. This includes Latin-America burritos for lunch and a Chinese dinner including potstickers, eggrolls, and sesame beef. The campers loved the new foods served and I personally hope the eggrolls make their return sometime soon.
A highlight of the afternoon was a "World Cup" soccer tournament where campers represented different countries and played teams mixed between lower and upper bunklines. It was a perfect, sunny day and we all can't wait for culture day next year here at camp.
