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.
