Tuesday 21st July
Today i had the gym comp at Danbee, which i sa camp in thesame town as us, just the other side of the lake.
Me, Megan and Leah went i was vbeing used a s a judge hahaha very funny.
I ended up being floor judge with another person as they wanted two onfloor, this was funny, we didnt have to judge the correct way as no one had training. Everyone got low bar scores as they had a regional judge haha. The girls did really well and we came back to camp with 5 medals i think it was, some gold, silver and bronze which was really good as Danbee has amasing facilities almost as good as my gym back home.
Evening activity was DJ Jeff Yahney, this was sooo cool i went dancing on the podium with Bridget and Rachel and got myself a hat and shirt yey, it was alot of fun and all the campers had a good time too.
After this we went out to the depot yet again lol still partying.

Thursday 23rd July
Today all i did was work on the celebration t-shirts all day, we had to silkscreen 104 pof them back to front, with 2 stensels. This was almost impossible. Evening activity was also silk screening the t-shirts, we didnt get round to doing the backs of the shirts as they hadnt yet dried so we stole Nelsons heater from his room and some hairdryers to try and help. It kind of worked!
After a day of hard work we went out a an age group to Patricks and had some yummy food, it was good although we kind of stuck in our own little groups but hey.
Friday 24th July
Again i was still doign celebartionwith Susan, Liz and Kayla. Even though we had left the heater on most of the night the tshirts were still not fully dry so we did the ones we could and put the heater on full wack again. By the end of the day we did manage to do them all and get them delivered to the bunks which was amasing timing as celebration is tonight. Jus as we were in the playhouse setting up for celebaration Boyo told me that i had a package in the admin, i thought it was my choc form my mum but no. It was a pressie form Jrod bless him , i was really embarrased.
Celebration went really well and everyone nliked it, we had to sing a song at the end to Beat it but witrh the words changed to read ikt as our celevration was Literature, o yea i forgt to mention that part. The 13's this year decided to celebrate Literature. We counselors were not told about this song so at the end i was so shoced to be called up onto the stage but it was pretty funny, i just hid in the back.
