It was another great day at camp! We played Greeley Game intercamp games against Lake Owego Camp for Boys! Basketball, softball, archery, soccer, volleyball, and fishing! And canoe trips were out: 8th graders tackled the Delaware Water Gap and reported blue skies and smooth waters.
But tonight was where the real action was… The evening program was 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 ice cream on a bus decorated with signs saying “WE ESCAPED!” 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 complicated, and this blogger isn’t doing it justice, but here’s the gist: it was an AWESOME night at Timber Tops.
