Life continues past the months of June, July, and August and so must the counselors of Day Camp.

R.I.P. Slip 'n' Slide

Hey team, so odds are now classified as "really good" that we won't be able to use the slip 'n' slide on the field this summer. Not to take this super happy fun club down the path of work-related matters, but does anyone have any suggestions for possible alternatives?

That really stinks. Good luck breaking it the first and second graders, the love that thing on a foggy morning....

I suggest mud volleyball. Or maybe hide and go seek construction style.... May use of what you got i always say.

Why can't we use Redwood's field on mornings that they won't be using it, then hike the kids up there like we're going to the creech? Too far for the director to be from base camp or Redwood won't let us?

do kick ball, but get those huge mats you can fall into as bases- tracking?

Does this mean the field is off limits? If not, I suggest capture the flag on the field. Or, you could do ultimate capture the flag with the older kids that includes the trails or the outdoor campus somehow. Like the teams have to hide their flag... And it could be anywhere.. like boundaries for when we played sardines. And there could be fake out flag guarders to throw people off. If you still want water to be encorporated, on hot days, councelors could have squirt guns and hide out to tag people with them. If this isn't making sense, give me a call. I have all kinds of fun game ideas from working at the YMCA with the same kids all summer, we made up a lot of new games.

So you're basically talking about Youth Staff's Mission: Impossible game. I remember you playing capture the flag indoors one time, Bru. Looked like a lot of fun. Would that work for everyone? What logistical issues were there?
