This week’s Carnival theme brought laughs, smiles and silliness all around. Girls played classic carnival games, painted each others’ faces, wore great costumes and had fun snacks.
Camp Elk River
As always, horses were the highlight of the campers’ week. Carnival week was also a big hit, with fun games and snacks of corn dogs and cotton candy.
This week began wonderfully, as we saw the first set of girls on our longer adventure sessions go on a trip down the Saint Croix River. A big highlight of the week was when girls found frogs that had jumped into their kayaks.
This week we had girls leave for a kayak trip to the Northern Highlands. (Watch next week’s video for pictures!) We also had a great closing campfire, where we held a Thunderbird Ring ceremony to honor 22 counselors-in-training, wranglers-in-training and wilderness guides-in-training for their dedication to camp.
Camp Singing Hills
This week, girls thoroughly enjoyed their camp experience which included eating pudgy pies and smores before sleeping out under the stars. Girls also had a great time trying out our new, giant “Happy Slide”.
