Opening Days!

The first night at Willow Springs' 2012 summer camp season was filled with Wild Things, dinosaurs, and little red cabooses in celebration of this week's theme, Storybook. Opening campfire took place at the new outdoor stage, where some favorite childhood characters came to life and each unit had an opportunity to teach the others a new song. Campers awoke on their first full day to a decked-out Lodge, where over 30 picture books hung from the rafters and silly Seuss quotes sprinkled the walls. Cocopah got a visit from some special animal guests, Navajo and Apache jammed to music in their jammies, Hualapai worked on team building through low-ropes initiatives, and Hidden had the chance to test their shot on the archery course. At the end of the day, all of the units participated in a cook-out and an all-camp evening activity in which girls chose a storybook-themed  station to work at. Girls had a choice of the Three Little Pigs, where forts were built; the Gingerbread Man, where cookies were decorated; the Cinderella Ball, where a dance party was had; the Three Blind Mice, where an obstacle course awaited; Pinocchio, where hand puppets were crafted; and Tinkerbell, where fairy homes were set around the camp Labyrinth. And that's not all--please check out some of the day's photos!
