It's day four of the session and we began things with a delicious breakfast of yogurt and bagels. The morning activities were filled with fun under the sun. In arts and crafts, our campers painted their own wooden snake. Sports and rec was out on the lawn with a very fun obstacle course Performing arts had costume play outside around the amphitheater and in nature campers made some colorful gak.  After a chicken strip lunch, we said good-by to some of our campers and then moved on to the all camp swim. After ward, anticipation grew as everyone knew that after our lovely dinner of pot roast and garlic potatoes, we were going to have our circus show. The night was filled with laughs and cheer as our young Paivikans took place in the build your own float parade, and then moved on to be entertained by our staff performing acrobatics, juggling, magic and dancing. At the end of the night, everyone headed off to the cabins for bedtime, happy and tired.  Today was another great day here in the wilds of Camp Paivika.

Today was another great day up here at Camp Paivika. We started our day with pancakes for breakfast. Then it was on to activities for the day. In nature, everyone watched as the turtles raced. Sports and rec had a nice game of baseball on the lawn. In arts and crafts they made rings of fire for the talent show, cleverly made of hula hoops and orange shredded paper. Performing arts was fun as they played games and dressed up while telling jokes. Then for lunch we enjoyed pizza. Later that day the daily all camp swim took place cooling off our Paivikians. Moving on to dinner, everyone enjoyed some delicious hamburgers and fries. The day ended with our talent show. By the end of the program, everyone was on their feet cheering on their fellow campers. As the sun set over the horizon, we celebrated another fun filled day here at camp.
