Free & Fit Summer Camp - Peace & Patience - Tuesday 10th July - by Tim Cheux
Tuesday morning we met in the Library for the first time. Sadly, due to a family relative passing I was absent for our first day which was a real test of our volunteer and staff members. Regardless, all the Campers had a great day yesterday tie dying, eating together, playing sport, hanging out and getting to know each other on the first day. Today the campers focsused on the core values today of Peace and Patience after yesterdays values of Love and Joy.
We started the day, after being in the library at CCHP, at the Mini golf course in Closter home to eighteen holes of pure fun! All the campers broke off into groups and contested who was the best player, with skill, tenacity and perserverance. Many of the players kept score on the first round before we had lunch. After lunch we changed teams and some players got an improved score and developed a better rythm as they improved their shots and scores.
After Mini golf we went swimming at the Harrington Park Swimming pool, played volleyball, hung out together and appreciated the summer weather from the shade as we kept cool. It was an all round great day together. Most campers shared in their reflections that they loved Mini Golf and Swimming so we added Swimming to our schedule on Thursday in the afternoon as well.
It was a fun all round day and the Campers got more out of it than they we or they had hoped for. They grew in relationship together patiently throughout the day and built a peaceful environment for each other, the volunteers and those around them by listening and allowing others to speak when it was their turn. Today the Campers were very respectful towards others and each other.
Tomorrow we go to the cinema, Cycle Bar, Chipoltle, Starbucks and other afternoon activities back at church. We are all looking forward to it and cant wait to bond stronger relationships together.
