Session 2 was another great week of fun here at Magic Sky; we started our week being welcomed by an amazing double rainbow! All of the units have had a great week enjoying everything Magic Sky has to offer. This week’s programs included Archery Adventures, Paintbrushes and Play, Brownie Discovery, and Scientifically Speaking, and CIT I.
The Archery campers spent most of their week learning how to take care and use a bow and arrow and trying to hit the glorious bulls eye! After the group spent some time using compound bows they had the chance to challenge themselves a little more and learn to use recurve bows. They had a great discussion on which we liked better and why. When the unit was not on the range they enjoyed all the other fun activities MSR has to offer!
Our campers participating in the paint brushes and play unit spent the each day visiting Ash in the arts and crafts room twice a day. During the week they made; sand candles, baskets, pinch pots, dream catchers, decorated cupcakes, masks, pop can bracelets, nature sketching, and leather bracelets.
The Big Dipper and Northern Lights Science campers spent much of their time with Lady Bug in the Nature and Science Classroom where they did; marshmallow genetics, crime scene investigation, jelly bellyolgy, extraction of strawberry DNA, making volcanoes erupt, and much much more!! Finally the CITs spent their second week of training in the units shadowing councilors and program staff.
As a whole camp we enjoyed two wonderful all camps! On Wednesday the campers were sent back to the Wild West looking for gold and other gems but they had to be careful not to run into a bandit who could then steal all of their earnings! Luckily we also had sheriffs wonder the grounds looking for these bandits who were stirring up trouble! On Friday we enjoyed a Who’s Line is it Anyways game. Everyone laughed so hard watching staff and campers act so silly!
We hope all the campers had a great time and enjoyed their camping experience at Magic Sky! Be sure to check our Facebook and flickr page for tons of exciting pictures that were taken throughout the week!
