Ending on a High Note: Session 7 at Magic Sky Ranch
Session 7 was the last resident camp session here at Magic Sky, and we all made sure it was a great one. Campfire Sunday night opened the session, where everyone sang songs and staff and CITs performed silly skits.
Our Brownie Discovery Camp tried out all of the amazing activities camp has to offer. They made bird feeders with Ash at Arts and Crafts, scaled the climbing wall, and learned beginning ballet moves in Dance and Drama. With a very busy schedule, they even got to go on a pixie hunt.
This week our Night Owls learned lots about the night sky, taking advantage of later breakfasts to stay up and go stargazing. They even got to see a couple shooting stars from this week’s meteor shower. While the three Night Owl cabins each participated in different activities. They all spent time at Arts and Crafts, Nature and Science, Dance and Drama, and the Climbing Wall.
Our Archery Adventures campers honed their skills at the archery range before moving on to the field archery course. They also got to make atomic ice, Magic Sky’s scientific name for ice cream, with Ladybug at Nature and Science, and developed improv skills with Cinderella at Dance and Drama.
The All the World’s a Stage group developed their acting chops, working with our Dance and Drama specialist, Cinderella, every day. They wrapped up the week by showing off their improv skills at a performance Friday afternoon in front of the entire camp. In addition to all of the time spent acting, they did archery, decorated cupcakes with Ash, and had a Spa Night at their cabin.
In addition to all of the individual activities, everyone came together Wednesday morning for a Carnival Field Day. There was face painting, a sponge toss, potato sack races, hula hoops, parachutes, the opportunity to make a silly hat, and music for a dance party.
Thursday ended with closing campfire where all of the cabins got to perform skits together. Emotions were high for staff and campers as they were sad to leave but happy to get to see their families again soon.
All the World’s a Stage’s improv show wrapped up the week with a bang. During the performance all of the other units also got to perform their favorite song as a group.
We hope to see you all next year.
