Yesterday, everyone joined their clan in the annual CLC Little Olympics! Events such as an obstacle course, 3-legged race, donut eating, deer wrestling (don’t worry, no actual deer were used for this game), 5 on 5 basketball, extreme gaga, feed the porcupine (similar to a scavenger hunt), swim relay, greased watermelon, and many more occurred simultaneously as the clans divided to conquer. Everyone was able to participate in the friendly competition and the Bears came in first place at the end of the day. At the end of the session we will announce the winning clan for the entire summer, which involves tallying up the scores from all of the Council Fires and games over the entire summer. The beautiful day full of fun and games gave the campers a chance to mix up the regularity of a week of classes.
After the Little Olympics, each cabin gathered together for an evening of cabin bonding time. Norman and Seneca played 8-sticks (a game similar to capture the flag, but with 8 sticks instead of a flag). Dunwoody had a bonfire and roasted marshmallows. Nikahu had Christmas in July and baked cookies together. Wahalla did henna and had a pajama party. Atira made sundaes and played outside together. Last, but not least, the Kiyans had a nail painting party. There is so much love constantly expressed, which serves as proof that “with one Father, even God, the whole family of man would be brethren” (Science & Health 469:30 to;).
Today is a regular day of classes with separate Testimony Meetings tonight. Tomorrow is the last full day of classes. The sun is shining down on the radiant expressions of joy that fill the camp.

Thank you sooo much for filling us parents in after 3 days of quiet! Wow did they get back into full activity mode. I know the kids are having such a good time and learning so much about themselves, love for God, their fellow-man and putting it all into practice. Thanks Crystal Lake for demonstrating to our children that spiritual growth is a lot of fun!
