Talent Show/Campfire

Hey everyone. Today was a fun filled day! We had former staffer Thomas come up and extertain the kids with his balloon animal skills! You can check out more of his work in the photo section.

Today we had the camera crew here to get some shots of programs and what we do here at camp. As such, we did "closing campfire" a night early so we could get it on camera. Campers enjoyed smores while watching their new friends perform their talents and listening to everyones pine cone wishes.
Briana sang Happy Happy Joy Joy for us...

Tamar kept us laughing with his comedy act...
and Jordan + crew did the Cupid Shuffle!

The smiles today were amazing!

The start of Session 7!

Session 7 opened with a flag raising before our Casino Carnival!

Campers and counselors competed in some friendly games of corn shucking...
A water balloon toss and a "pie" eating contest for the counselors...
and after the cabin games, campers were able to play casino games, get their faces painted nd enjoy some snow cones and cotton candy!

Yesterday we were joined by our " Paivika Champions"  in celebration of the 1st Annual Campership Campaign. The Paivika Champions are a group of Paivika Alimni back from the 50's and 60's helping to raise money to send campers to camp through our Campership program.

Thank you Champions for all you do!

And finally at campfire we got to meet all of our amazing campers for the week!

It's a little late, but good bye Session 6!

Session 6 ended with an amazing performance at closing campfire from our guys and girls group performing a dance they learned throughout the week in Fine Arts (to see those photos check out our photo section. )
