It’s another great day at camp! The morning started by welcoming an awesome group of play day campers to experience CTT. It’s more than a tour but not quite an overnight Explorers program- it’s awesome! We have amazing counselors who can’t be here all summer but who are beloved members of our CTT family come help us, and it’s always great to see so many new and familiar faces.
The most welcomed visitor of the day, though, was the sun! After a rainy day and a dark few days before, it was with so much excitement that we enjoyed a sunny, gorgeous, 75 degree day of regular activity. Highlights of the day included mountain biking, the running club, high zip-lining, Wibit playing, advanced yoga, and quesadillas for lunch! Yum! The afternoon ended with a Hamilton sing-along at General Swim, and a CA vs. counselor flag football game on the upper field.
Tonight, the evening program is the HIGHLY anticipated ESCAPE FROM CTT! In “Escape,” as its nicknamed, campers are placed in pairs (one junior camper and one senior camper in each group) and must complete a list of activities around camp (think shooting a basketball, kayaking around a buoy in the lake, doing forward rolls in gymnastics, etc.). The first 10 pairs to complete their checklist “ESCAPE” camp and head out for soft ice cream. But wait- there’s a catch. While your happy campers are scampering around camp trying to “Escape from CTT,” there are “powder puffs” (counselors stationed around camp trying to whack kids with a sock filled of corn starch) trying to freeze kids who can only be unfrozen by “hydro helpers,” (counselors who squirt frozen campers with water toys)! It’s hard to explain, but you get the gist: it’s going to be an AWESOME night under the Greeley stars.
That’s all for now, readers! Tune in tomorrow for more Timber Talk!
