Yesterday, our Paivika Olympic Games kicked off. We started night 6 with a relay race, in which campers had to race carrying an Olympic wand to a partner who then had to take the wand and finish the race. On the sports court, our ball toss began. Campers had to toss a ball into the field of play where they scored a certain amount of points. Over by the health care center, we had the hula hoop challenge. Contestants had to fit their entire team inside of a hula hoop before the opposing team. Over on the upper lawn, our obstacle course provided plenty of fun for our paivikans. The object was to run carrying a big plastic egg balanced on a wooden spoon. Then crawl through a tunnel, hula hoop five times, and hit a ball into a net with a hockey stick. Day 7 continues with two rounds of human pinball, where contestants must hit a ball into a goal by getting past the bumpers played by staff. We also have giant sized rock, paper, scissors. In this game, contestants from each team must run to the center of the circle, and with their whole body pick either rock, paper or scissors. And lastly, we have Battle ball. Here, contestants all gather in a very large circle, and are randomly tossed a special ball. They will then toss the ball back to the host in the center of the circle. On the ball are markings that give out orders. Whatever the order says, is what everyone or a selected individuals must do. Our games conclude tonight. By the end of the day, all of our campers will become camp Olympians.
