This week our campers took a look at the different culture of Australia. We started the week with Monday mystery being our Outdoor Pursuits department coming in and playing games that they would use for groups they take on trips. With the Lewellen pool being down we had to give up the pool to open Rec and couldnâ€™t swim Tuesday, so we moved the Movie, The Rescuers Down Under, to Tuesday.

Week 2 Sports & GAmes
Team Building Team Building had the groups team up and used different tools to work through challenges. They used scooters, hula hoops, jump ropes, and all sorts of things. They had to do different things with the tools they were given before moving on.
Sports and Games went Down Down Down which was the name of their game. The teams had a ball they would pass back and forth and every time they dropped the ball they had to go down. First to a knee, then both knees, and this continued until they were laying on the floor. This is a game they actually play in Australia.
OUTDOOR ADVENTURES Outdoor Adventures went through relay races working on their skills. For wards, backwards and every which way seeing who could be coordinated enough to make it around.
