We had quite a weekend here at Forrestel! On Saturday morning, the girls made their way to the eating house for breakfast where the day’s activity was announced: Pony Games! Our campers were split into their teams by color, and after breakfast, were sent back down to the campsite to deck themselves out in team spirit. Pony Games were a blast, with campers and counselors alike showing a record level of enthusiasm and some of the most fun, sweet horses we could ever ask for. It was truly an exciting morning!
After Pony Games came lunch, followed by the afternoon spent at an extended pond session. Our campers spent the afternoon lounging by the water and splashing around with their friends and counselors – it was a great way to beat the heat! In the evening, after dinner, we rounded up the tents for our summer’s third and final edition of Lip Sync! Our DJ, JD, brought out all the stops to put on a fantastic Lip Sync competition and dance party to follow. It was the most fun, rewarding end to an already fantastic day.
On Sunday morning, as is custom here on Forrestel Farm, campers and counselors got to sleep in as a start to one of our more relaxing days of the summer. After breakfast, the campers got to enjoy an extended rest hour to catch up on sleep and re-energize for the week! Then came lunch, and then came Olympics! Once again, the girls split into colored teams to compete for the Forrestel Olympics Championship – and the competition was fierce! This week, our Olympic Games were Marine-themed, so everyone got the chance to take a dip in the pond as part of the competition. After a few hours of relay races and cheer competitions, we headed back to the farm for dinner and movie night before the girls headed to bed.
All in all, the weekend was a total blast and has us truly thrilled for this last week of camp. Stay tuned for more stories!
