June 28...

Hey Parents and Friends,
Well, June 28th was the 1st Sunday of Term 2/3. At K2 we LOVE Sundays! We have an optional breakfast for kiddos from 9-10 am and have church at 10:30 am. So kampers and staff can sleep in on this one day till 9:45 am if they want! It's amazing! Our kampers just LOVE it! Then we have koffee kake for breakfast and fried chicken for lunch! 2 very long standing traditions! Here's the scoop of the day...

Verse: Luke 9:23: "Then He said to them all: 'If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me."

Morning: We had K2 church with the most beautiful scenery! Our church looks over the lake and is just a million dollar view! We had 2 staff folks share their stories/messages and they did an awesome job. Then your daughters have time with their counselors in FCA Huddle groups. From there they head to their cabins to write "chicken" letters. A chicken letter is a letter to whoever sent them to kamp to say thanks and to tell them how things are going.

Afternoon: We had a Tournament of Champions afternoon mixed with laid-back feel. Kampers could play in 3-on-3 basketball tournaments, 4-on-4 sand volleyball, washers tournament, but also had a pool party with sno cones and Saved by the Bell in our air-conditioned girls gym. I asked about 100 of the girls what they thought of the day and they said it was the best Sunday ever! Yes!!! I love it when we can get teens to love hanging out and being normal teenagers!

Night: TRIBAL WARBALL! Tonight it was Kickapoo vs. Kiowa in tribal warball! I think the Kickapoos won the big tournament. We then play kampers vs. staff. I must admit our staff LOVES playing warball. We play 3 games and the first game the staff have 3 lives, then 2 lives, then just 1 life. To my surprise the staff won all 3 games! It's always really fun and the kids get all painted up in war paint. So cute! Again I am so thankful for the FUN of K2. 16 year old girls can be just that, 16!!
