The Music Camp Choir did another wonderful concert on Friday night of Week 8. Each summer the music campers work for 10 hours scattered over the week. They learn new songs (and sing a couple of old favorites), they work together to make beautiful music, and have a GREAT time. This was their fifth summer under the direction of David Piper. Check out a little glimpse of their great work!
One of the highlights of Friday of Music Camp is the rap that Piper puts together. He waits until just the right moment before the concert begins and then let's it all out. Sometimes it seems that Piper can do just about ANYTHING!
Before each meal, cabin and tent groups line up at the Dining Hall. It's a good chance for the Unit Leader to make sure all the campers are where they're suppose to be as the counselors head inside to set up the tables. During the few minutes before walking inside for breakfast, one cabin group had the chance to think about what they love most about Calumet. It's always great to hear the responses!
A wide game at Calumet is when the whole camp gathers together and participates in a bit of a competitive experience. Everyone arrives to Luther Hall for the nuts and bolts of the game. Sometimes, groups are asked to wear particular color shirts to help identify the teams. Sometimes there is a need for the counselor to get dressed up in some kind of crazy outfit. On one recent event, the wide game had a Men In Black theme. Check out this clip for a taste of what a wide game at Calumet is all about!!
Calumet is full of standards and operating procedures and disciplines. It's the very reason we're able to relax and have a great time helping kids think about God, make new friends, and have tons of fun. There are all kinds of behind the scenes puzzle pieces that make camp run smooth. Here's a little something to help you understand how complex a simple little change can be!
