It was our last day of camp and it filled with even more exciting activities!
After everyone practiced their casting yesterday, they did so well today! Rainy days can be a great time to go fishing because fish are generally more active in low light conditions. While there are both omnivorous and carnivorous fish, the peppers caught all carnivorous fish: sunfish, bass, and bluegill. We tried to look for turtles to see how many turtles there were in the pond to hang out on our turtle islands once we put them out. Most people got to catch a fish. One person caught seven fish!!
We made rainbow smoothies today. We used strawberries, orange juice, bananas, kale, and blueberries. A nutritionist came in and talked about eating a rainbow of fruits and veggies. Today we got to experiment with different mixtures for our smoothies. Some groups used a little juice and others used a lot of juice to see how they would taste different. All of the different fruits and vegetables have nutrients that are so good for us!
We played capture the flag for most of the afternoon. We paraded our flags to the capture the flag field. We hid our flags and had such a fun time searching for each other’s flags.
