2019 Overnight Camp: Session 3 – Part 4

Yesterday we were thrilled to welcome our very first session of Wildwood Warblers! These 7-8 year-olds arrived in the morning and will leave on Saturday with the rest of Session 3 after a two-night overnight camp experience. They jumped right into camp fun with swim checks, lunch in the always-lively dining hall, and Camp Olympic.

Camp Olympics were unbelievably fun, both to participate in and to watch. We played silly games like Cheeto Head and Rock Paper Scissors Faceoff and made LOTS of messes with shaving cream, whipped cream, and Skittles. See a few highlights below and check out the full slideshow on SmugMug.
