Campers had the chance to get creative while decorating their own miniature pumpkins. They then took to the stage where they acted out fall-themed objects and actions in a silly game of charades. It was such a beautiful day outside, we couldn't resist the opportunity to head outdoors and launch film canister rockets using just alka seltzer and water. Campers then got in some friendly competition at our Taste of Camp version of a carnival water gun race!
After each challenge was complete, the bunk received an ingredient necessary in creating a Pumpkin Volcano. Once they had all four elements, we all headed outside to scoop out our pumpkins, fill them up, and watch what happens. While the initial eruption may have been a tad underwhelming, our campers got to experiment with the different ingredients to see what they needed to add to make the volcano work!
Check out pictures and videos from our day below, and check back next week after we spend this Sunday doing some of our favorite typical camp activities!
