Hey all! We’ve just finalized Saturday, August 20 as the date for the Official WMACS 2011 Reunion!
Stay tuned for time & location details, but it will be sometime in the afternoon somewhere in the MD/VA area (so helpful, we know!). Often, campers will have dinners and other smaller-group get-togethers after the official reunion, so plan accordingly 🙂
Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll on Facebook to help us select the date. Sorry to those who will be unable to attend, but we definitely encourage everyone to plan their own informal hangouts in the coming days and weeks before everyone heads back to school!
Last day of classes =(, but not the last day of camp =). Chorus turned into a scrapbooking session and time for campers to make appreciation cards for the Frostburg State University staff, as well as the ah-yi’s and shu-shu’s who came along with us this year. In ID, campers finished off the week by writing affirmations or positive messages to one another that they could look back on to remember the awesome memories they had from camp.
In the afternoon, our very delayed water games finally happened. Teams got into their swimwear and competed in four different competitions out on the field:
- Cowboys vs Asians – one pair from each team squared off in a duel. one member of each pair had a loaded water gun, while the other had five splash bombs. the team with the last man standing scored a point.
- Save the Princess – one team tried to navigate an obstacle course while avoiding water balloons and splash bombs from an opposing team. each team member that slid to victory via the slip and slide scored a point
- Concussionator – in a relay, team members spun around a bat five times before running out onto a sprinkler-soaked field to pick up a tennis ball to bring back to their teams. the team with the most balls collected won.
- Water toss relay – one team member set out with a bottle to fill with water, then came back and tossed the contents of the bottle to another team member with a bucket. this continued until time ran out. the team with the most water in their respective bucket won.
After dinner, we had free time in the dorm. With the extra day, we wanted to make sure campers just had the chance to sit back, relax and enjoy each other’s company. Some campers wrote notes to one another via the mailboxes, others played cards or board games, and others just sat around exchanging stories and getting to know one another better….and then there were the members of G4, who cashed in on their night market prize to pelt teacher Kevin with water balloons.
