As the first week of SCATS 2012 comes to a close and the second week begins, we want to all take time out to wish all the dads of our wonderful SCATS campers a Happy Father’s Day! The weekend was great. Saturday was filled with tons of activities for everyone. Despite the rain, two other counselors and myself tie dyed T-shirts outside! The shirts turned out great and the students loved them.
Many of the kids took part in tournaments and athletic activities like Capture the Flag games, Ultimate Frisbee matches, and a dodgeball tournament. After the water balloon toss, our head counselor, Jonathan, and some campers ambushed the Capture the Flag group, attacking fully armed with the left over water balloons. The Capture the Flag players attempt to get indoors before the rain hit seemed in vain, and they got soaked anyway.
After dinner we all headed down to Tate Page Hall for Paper Theater, during which we act out classic fairy tales with a twist! Not only do the stories have plot twists, but the only supplies allowed for costumes, props, and backdrops are newspapers, masking tape, and one permanent marker. The kids had a great time watching performances like The Three Little Pigs, Valley Girl style; The Boy Who Cried Wolf, Zombie Style; and Little Red Riding Hood, Opera style. It was a great night to be a SCATS camper!
Sunday we had a cookout and watched the Pixar movie Up! SCATS campers also took time to call home and wish their dads a very Happy Father’s Day!
