Greetings Parents!! Happy Sunday from Skadonnelly! Sundays are just wonderful here at Skyline. I mean, we get to sleep IN! Why wouldn’t it be anybody’s favorite? We also get to eat homemade donuts for breakfast in our PJ’s so that’s another plus! Today was beautiful. Clear skies with white, white clouds and it was breezy! After breakfast, the girls went to their cabins for cabin cleanup and to don their white outfits for Sunday School and Skyline Church.
Our Sunday School classes were split up by the cabin groups where they each did separate relays that related to the Olympics! Some were races and others were team building exercise and it was a fun demonstration that coincided with our theme for the summer. After a ton of fun, it was off to church in the gym! The Counselor Choir led our worship with a couple songs followed by a performance from our Glee class, and then the Pickle’s took over for the sermon. Mark Pickle is our super, cool “ropes guy” and his wife Carole is our “flower and artwork extraordinaire”. If you have never seen Mrs. Carole’s artwork, just look at the website! All the decoration on the webpage was created by her! They spoke this afternoon and a little relay demonstration was done there as well and the girls had a ball. Everyone loves the Pickle’s .
For lunch we had CHICKEN FINGERS and once we all ate our weight in that we rolled ourselves to our cabins for a much needed, extended rest hour! We got about an hour and half to rest and/or film the rest of our cabin VMA music videos. Girls were filming left and right and look forward to Tuesday night’s post because I think the videos are going to be our best yet!
Rest hour FLEW by if felt like and before I knew it we were in a full blown carnival! From snow cones, to inflatable slides, to karaoke, we had a couple hours of great fun and hang out time with friends. There was so much to do so please go check out the pictures from it this afternoon if you haven’t already! We captured some good moments! Club Leaders even were put on the plank for a Dunk Tank! Great fun!
We cleaned ourselves up for picnic dinner after the Luau and the counselors decked out in their camo and black for Counselor Hunt! The campers were scoping out what areas they were going to check during dinner wanting to find as many counselors as possible to earn their club points since tonight’s activity counts towards the coveted Point Cup! After dinner and the announcement of rules, the campers were taken to the Riverside side of the river while the counselors took a couple minutes to hide. Then we released the hounds! The girls were off with their flashlights trying to find all they could including some special, random items like a cardboard pineapple and star that got them major points too! The numbers were close the whole game but the end result turned out to be
The girls are looking forward to activities gearing up again and I know a group of girls are also REALLY looking forward to TRIP DAY! The Ocoee and Caving Trip embark tomorrow and I am SUPER excited because I get to go caving and I have never been! Plenty of picture from each trip will be taken and we will be sure to share them when we get back! Until then, I am off to watch some Olympic Gymnastics!
