Today was another great, full day! The Counselors-in-Training really stepped-up their leadership role in planning much of the day’s happenings. We started with a guided meditation in the morning, which was focused on the importance of thinking before acting. When breakfast finished, we had fun doing Arlos (washing dishes for the whole camp) and sang lots of songs while doing so. Daniel Anderson, the Assistant Program Director, also came to join for the day, arriving just in time to visit some of the interest groups shared with our host camp and campers. During our afternoon Discovery Block, our focus was on privilege and perspective, and we portrayed these issues through a challenging, yet fun, game called Monster Mash. After so much powerful conversation, we went to relax and play at the lake, and our fun there included balance competitions on the paddle boards. Entering late afternoon, we took more time to plan more of our various presentations on our religious traditions. After a ’50’s themed dinner, we returned to our lodge to dive more deeply into the concept of privilege and how to address it within ourselves and others through engaging and powerful activities led by the Counselors-in-Training.
