Today was a wonderful Wednesday at camp! Girls woke up and, after completing their morning chores, headed down to the Tucker Inn for a breakfast of French toast sticks, sausage, and fruit. After singing fun songs, we headed up to morning chapel. Adam K. talked about how we can learn about who God is by spending time with Him and His word. 
Activities were soon in full swing! In cheerleading, Sophia S. learned new routines and cheers. Lorelai C. and Marin D. in guitar worked toward their gold bars, the most challenging level to accomplish! They practiced songs to perform in chapel and taught other girls in the class new chords. It is so rewarding to see campers not only learn new skills, but to share the joy of that new skill with other campers. On my walk around camp, I also caught the PAWS puppies on a walk of their own. The dogs loved getting to see (and sniff) everything in reach!
Cooking made a delicious snack of pigs in a blanket and mac and cheese, which I enjoyed on my hike back up the hill to the lake. Swimming had relay races today, with all different strokes and even cannonballs! It was neck-and-neck the whole time – finally ending in a tie, to the delight of everyone who got a candy prize. 
After second period, we all enjoyed a lunch of chicken Caesar salad wraps, fries, and grapes before singing our tribe songs. Momo announced that the winner of Inferno last night was Red Wolves and tonight, we’re playing Sock War!! Sock War is a camp favorite tribal game in which campers try to tag girls of other tribes with a long sock all while trying to capture the other tribe’s flag. This afternoon, Tweedle Dee and Doe had free swim! The girls loved jumping off of the blob and diving boards and swimming around with their friends. Loy H. and Emily B. were also busy throwing at the pottery wheel, and they proudly showed off their dishes and bowls. 
As campers go through this afternoon’s activities and get excited for Sock War, they will do so knowing that at the end of the competition, they will come back to their cabin and be friends with girls of all tribes. Tribal games are ways for girls to foster friendly competition while still having tons of fun!
