Last weekend I went on a church youth retreat. 20 kids. It seems 2 weeks in the summer was not enough.
At least there wasn't 300 of them ;)
It was held up at the Salvation Army camp at Jackson's Point, right on Lake Simcoe.
In between biblical teachings, we had some activities.... canoeing, archery, high ropes..
There were some imaginative games . .... with some interesting props... some challenges...
just how many kids would fit into this... and be able to run an obstacle course
these were lit and had to be put out
with water guns
sprayed at each other
sprayed on the face ...
and then tossed cheezies
to see how many could stick
this was the set up for a giant version of
complete with a giant slingshot that 3 kids had to use
and this was the ammo
A few other challenges...
Banana Surgery...Peeling a banana with the feet
breaking it into 4 pieces
and then putting it back together
Building a structure with marshmallows and
uncooked spaghetti noodles
Making words with Alphabits cereal
Some of the kids would have rather eaten the props
in fact some did
...you know, those reject props
but not the bananas, lol
and then there were the non-props
deep fried cheesecake
oh yeah... it was good.
The kids certainly had fun ....
so did some of the adults
Turns out a few of them are quite competitive.
I'm sure you're all wondering...
Did I get to stitch?
Did I have any finishes?
well, that's another story...
