This past weekend, I helped my Rover crew plan and carry out a Fairy Tales themed camp for our Group. Which meant planning a good program for nearly 40 youth aged 5- 14.
It went Most Excellently.
I’m not kidding, All the sections had fun, the leaders and parents were so impressed. Even with a severe lack of sleep, I had a lot of fun. (And I wasn’t expecting to have much on a only a slight nap!)
We had Wonderland Croquet, with some AMASING Flamingo golf clubs. There was a skill-testing course and an obstacle course down below, and the last activity in our round-robin was gingerbread decorating.
Everyone had a great time. Everyone was so great. All the Rover costumes turned out Fantastic. We had a Gingy, Cinderella, Alice, Snow White, Price Phillip, Sleeping Beauty/Aurora, Puss in Boots, Story Master and my favourite, Tinkerbell
I think what I liked best was the smiles on everyone’s faces. Everyone was so happy, and having so much fun. Everyone was a good sport too! (Thanks Poppa Bear, for being so good-humoured about Campfire. I didn’t know Richard didn’t know the cement pad wasn’t gravel…)
Campfire was good, too. I think it was about as formal as it could have been, given the circumstances. The skits were alright, the songs were okay. The kids even came up with some camp-themed cheers!
That’s why I’m in Scouting. To have fun, make friends, do silly things and make sure others are enjoying themselves.
(I wish I could embed that, but I don’t know how to take it from facebook…)
