Each year it is great to see girls striving to know their Savior more and more. Belle is one way in which we challenge the girls a little more in their walk with Christ. The girls tapped out during 1A 2011 were: Harper Dewine, Ruthie Wofford, Anniston Liscomb, Katie Dillard, Amy Davis, Molly Smith, Ragan Jones, Kate Causey, Sydney Pashley, Haylee Shirley, and Hannah Miller. Kate, Sydney, Haylee, and Hannah all achieved the rank of Belle this session.
I love jokes. Here’s one for you. What did the two seas say to each other? (Pause). Nothing – they just waved! The campers and staff from 2A have their on jokes to share….One more – this might be my favorite. What do you call the cheese that isn’t yours? You have to watch the video to find out! (Even if you already know the joke, it’s still funny!)
Do you like bananas? How about marshmallows? I don’t think I need to ask about chocolate…Put these three together and it makes for a great combination! This is one of the favorite campfire desserts – well liked by campers and staff alike! 2B Cherokee 23 was kind enough to walk us through this tutorial. Does this make you want one? Maybe you should try one at home!
We have some pretty talented people that enter the gates of Crestridge. Let’s think about this for a minute. Let’s look at the dogs in camp as an example. O.J. is good at wandering off. Trekker (the latest addition to the Crestridge dog family) is great at fetching. Sonny is very talented at popping 4-square balls and singing with Marva. Hobo is wonderful at being sweet and a great hiking companion. The video shows a small sampling of the talent that the campers brought during 2B last summer.
This was the largest group of girls that was tapped out during this summer. There were 19 girls tapped out this session. Grace Baker, Hannah Baker, Chandler Glover, Sarah dumont, Carianne Wright, Megan Helbing, Kelsey Lange, Millie Marshall, Mika Snead, Sarah Berlinsky, Christina Shepard, Arden Thompson, Andrea Albertson, Cari Phillips, and Erin Brown all achieved the rank of Trekker. Hannah Forsell, Kaley Knapp, Cary Murray, and Molly Speese achieved the rank of Belle.
We like to have a little bit of fun here at Crestridge. Last summer, this was one way we did that. The goal was to follow a camper with the video camera and see how long it would take for them to notice they were being followed…and then see their reaction. Enjoy these videos of “ghostings” on campers. P.S. Don’t forget to look at the faces – it’s the best part!
You might be fooled and think you will be watching/listening to Larry the Cucumber from Veggie Tale’s when this video starts. But alas, this is not the case. Some Cherokees from 2A 2011 would like to share with you their version of “Silly Songs with Crestridge”. These Crestridgers give Larry a good run for his money!
Camp is a pretty awesome place. So awesome, we sometimes wish that things that we only do at camp, we could actually do in “the real world”. For example, cabin clean up. I know every single one of you misses those chores you have to do every day and working with 9 other girls and your counselors to help keep that cabin sparkling clean! It can be some quality bonding time. Okay, so maybe you don’t miss that so much (or maybe you do!)….Check out the video some of our 2011 staff made for some other things that we don’t normally get outside of camp, and probably miss a little more than cabin clean up!
During 1B 2011, 17 girls were tapped out for the Belle challenge by Ashley and Debbye. Kacey cuda, Grace Valentine, Rachel Spivey, Emily Boggess, Abby Hani, Miranda Andrews, Madeline Gaffney, Hannah Joel, and Hannah Daughtridge all achieved the rank of Trekker. Heather Francis, Savannah Bowker, Robyn Cothran, Mackenzie Bowlin, Hannah Norman, Lauren Amos, Morgan Perry, and Mackenzie Bolton achieved the rank of Belle this session.
And so it continues….Miniature tanks. The game that no one can really figure out. The game that for some reason we find entertaining. The game that gives the participants a reason to crawl on their hands and knees. The game that has been played on grass, slip ‘n’ slide, wood decks, and other surfaces. The game that makes participants look, honestly, quite funny. The game that provides on-lookers a humorous picture. This game is all of these things, and yet it lives on. Bring on Summer 2012!
