Summertime Thrills - Eagle Eye!

Summertime Thrills stops for a water break. They line up and march to camp songs up the path to the grove of trees in the corner of the Park. Director Taylor Rethemeier explains the rules of Eagle Eye. The Eagle must watch over the grove very carefully to find food and stay strong during the day! At night the Eagle must rest (and close their eyes and count to 10). Everyone else sneaks up into the grove like a little mouse or squirrel to find safety in the trees.  When the Eagle wakes up she must search for breakfast! If she sees any tasty morsels she describes them and 'gobbles' them up (and they run back to help the Eagle). The it's time for Eagle's morning nap and the forest critters can come out and scramble down the forest toward the path until "3, 2, 1 - Eagle Eye!" Then Eagle wakes from her rest and searches for lunch! Big high-5s to all the critters that survived the Eagle's dinner!

What's in the Mystery Box? Get in the Game Finds Out!

Get in the Game campers took the Mystery Madness to new heights! Earlier this week each camper chose a special item to put in a box and wrote clues around the outside. Taking a break from Mystery Tag to restore their energy, this morning campers met in their small groups to guess the secret items: the Black Holes, the Mystery Machine, the Clues & Sherlock Homes and the Homies held the boxes like precious treasures.  

Can you guess this one? (See below for the answer)
