Denver Juniors had an action-packed Wednesday!
To start our day off, we traveled with the Explorers to the Stapleton Green. Activity Specialist Mike had camp’s climbing wall “Wally” set up, and Juniors were able to begin climbing right away. The kids never cease to amaze me with their aptitudes, and I was impressed by how well the Junior group did with climbing.
Around midday, Conrad – our incredible bus driver – drove us to Jet Stream pool where we had ample time to relax, cool off, and play. Campers had a great time playing the “jump-into-the-water-without-getting-your-head-wet” game, which was invented today and played for an hour. We also had a fun time playing Marco Polo, and campers had the opportunity to show off their different swimming strokes across the wider area of the pool.
Juniors returned to Hangar 61 for the second part of the afternoon. We had a delicious snack of Smorgasgorp, and we had some time to hang out and sing some songs. We worked on “Ho Hey” as a group, and we also sang “Sloopy” in a whisper voice to close out the day. Campers left happy and – dare I say – tired.
We can’t wait until we visit Eldorado Canyon tomorrow!
