For the past two days, us 7s & 8s participated in the awesome Leadership program @ Winona Park. For those unfamiliar with the camp, it consists of several physical activities and full-scale games designed to teach us necessary skills in life, like politeness, respect, collaboration, and teamwork. Everyone found this camp to be fun and excitable, even though this year, the camp wasn’t hosted by the Camp Glenmore staff, who brought about several challenges that tested our skill, perseverance, and teamwork. However, our amazing Winona teachers put together some great collaborative challenges, and kept up the Camp Glenmore spirit. Over the past two days, we participated in several activities that included some of my favourites, like….
–Cane Tower had us competing against another team to build one of the tallest, free-standing stick towers. Here, teamwork was the core of success for our 6-metre tower, where unfortunately, our COMMUNISM, ANARCHY, and LIGHT BLUE PREVAILS chants were born (don’t ask why).
–Command & Conquer had 6-person squadrons running around to different “stations” all over Winona Park, spending as much time as possible at each station before enemy squadrons kicked them out. Running around getting more time scored points for our colour team, and brought us to know individual members better (LIGHT BLUE PREVAILS!!!!).
–Giant Scrabble brought out the masterminds of each group as we all struggled to form words with our given letters. Thanks to me, and several others, we won with over 40 words and 450+ points (LONG LIVE LIGHT BLUE!)(COMMUNISM!!).
Oh yes, it was a great 2 days, apart from where my entire left hand swelled up after a wasp sting, but that’s another story. The point is that we had a ton of fun, and we are now [legit] Guardians of Winona. Yay!!!! Thanks for reading!!!
P.S; Please blame T. Basserman for the COMMUNISM chant. Hah!
