S.F.A., Intercamp Games, Overnights and More!

Another great day down the winding road! But this one started a little differently. We had our first late (8:45AM) wakeup, and believe it or not, many slept the latest they’d ever slept before. Camp Timber Tops is an active place, and sometimes we need some extra Zs! Thursdays and Mondays are (usually!) our late-start days, and today was the first. On Thursdays, after our late start, we have S.F.A. which stands for Supervised Free Activity. The girls spend the morning choosing how to spend their time. For some, that means letter-writing on the porch of the dining hall, Mad Libs under a tree, or grabbing some friends to host a pop-up nail salon in Junior Village. But it’s so much more than a lazy morning. We have extra special events happening around camp, and almost everyone participates in something fun and different. In addition to activities and courts being open to play, today’s extra-special SFA offerings were cupcake cone making in cooking, a special “fun with fitness” class with our very own personal trainer, the high zipline in full swing, and “color war” games on the upper field. After lunch, we went to a “normal” schedule, but it was anything but normal. It’s camp, after all! We always have a few balls in the air! Today, quite literally! We held basketball (13 and under), soccer (13 and under and 11 and under), gaga (11 and under), and volleyball (15 and under and 13 and under) intercamp games at CTT today, and we were victorious in many! More importantly, we had a GREAT time playing. And later in the afternoon, many of our 6th graders prepared for their first overnight (everyone who’d like will have the opportunity)! Though they set up their tents and campsite in the early evening, they come back and participate in dinner (lasagna- yum!) and evening program with the rest of camp and then head back into the wild (okay, the Upper Field) after that. They’ll eat s’mores around the campfire, sing songs, tell stories, and enjoy a Pocono starry night. Tonight’s evening programs are a social with Lake Owego for Seniors and Name That Tune for Juniors! Whew! We’re exhausted just writing about our day! Thanks for tuning in to another Timber Talk! All is well in Greeley!
