The day started off cool but the sun came out and all the campers were eager to participate in a fun day at the waterfront. Eight stations of games kept them busy all morning. We had a special camp friend who was swimming around in a fish bowl on the picnic table – Nemo! Nemo was visited by each and every camper as they came by the Freezie station.
Another very special guest stopped by to visit the girls and leaders at the camp today; Pamela Rice our Chief Commissioner. All of the campers were lucky enough to receive her crest. Thank you Pamela for the visit.
Lunch was cook-your-own hot dog. The teams made either small fires our prepared their hot dogs to cook in milk cartons. Giggles, smiles and lots of tasty hot dogs were what we shared over lunch. It always tastes so much better when you cook your own.
Then disaster struck – Nemo was missing! There on the table sat a fish bowl filled with water only and one rock. The campers were off to solve clues around the camp. After an afternoon of clue hunting the teams came back with their papers with their suggestions of who did it, where it happened and how? Most of the girls had concluded it was Grumpy who took Nemo for her fish tank back at the dental office where she works. Then out of the corner of my eye I saw Grumpy trying to escape with the camp rowboat. I shouted, “Scooby, look, Grumpy is trying to escape!” Scooby ran down to the water and jumped into a kayak and saved the day by reaching in the rowboat and rescuing Nemo. The campers ran to the shoreline to meet Scooby and return Nemo to his fishbowl with golden rocks!
