Pinecrest Camp by Meredith
Meredith Lareau tuning in to tell you all about a sleepaway camp that my sister and I go to. we went to this camp last year, and it was fun so we decided to go again!
The camp starts like this...when you get there you sign in and go to your cabin. Then your parents help get you settled. when the parents leave we go to the overlook and eat dinner. we had roasted hot dogs,chips,beans,coleslaw,cookies and , oranges.YUM! after dinner we went to the barn to play games including ships and sailors and Pinecrest olympics.then we came bck to the main part of Pinecrest and we had a snack.(pinecrest calls it canteen).after canteen we played PPMD. PPMD is basicly a big game of hide n seek. After that we said a prayer and then we went to our cabins to go to bed.
That is how the first day of Pinecrest goes!!!!!!!
Monday at Pinecrest was an interesting day! Dad had to come to Pinecest because Madeline hurt her wrist the day before.Well actually she sprained her wrist at soccer camp the week before.But that is another story...Anyway, she hurt her wrist even more the last night. So, dad had to take her to an urgent care in Collerille.After this fiasco we had afternoon activities.I chose kickball. It was super fun!!!!! After that we had Flat time. Flat time is basicly rest time. All you do is sleep or be quiet. I know it is terrible. After flat time we changed for swwwimming. Unfortuanatly when we got to the pool it started raining. Plan B was to go to the lodge. We played games like identity crisis and Mophia.it was super fun!! After Games in the lodge we ate dinner. YUM! After dinner the rain was gone so we went swimming!We had to take our swim test first though. I got a green band which means I passed. Madeline almost got at green band but, her wrist started hurting when she was treding water so she got a yellow which is halfway.So she did pretty well for a sprained wrist!After swimming time we went back to our cabin to change back into dry clothes. when we came back we went to go play night games. night games are really fun because they are in the dark! We played barnyard. Barnyard is a game were you find various objects hidden throughout the woods.When you find something you yell your team animal sound and the counselor on your team had to come pick it up! It is a super fun game!! Then we went back to cabins to take showers and go to bed!
that is how the second day of Pinecrest goes!!!!!!!
Tuesday was a super fun day! On Tuesday I got to go tree climbing and it was tanktop Tuesday!In tree climbing I beat all The boys!!!It was super fun!After tree clumbing we had lunch. You do not know how appealing food is after hard work!After thi we had flat time. Again. We woke up from flat time and it was raining hard..,.Again!We had to stay in our cain untill the rain eased up. after the rain eased up we went to the lodge to play games again.after games we had canteen.YUM! Then we went to our cabis to get changed for swimming. The water was super cold so, I did not swim I just played gaga. GaGa is a made up Pinecrest game.Then we went to our cabins to change back into dry clothes. Then we went to dinner. After dinne we went out to the althletic field to play barbarians. that game is really fun!!!!After barbarians we had smores and a campfire.Then we went back to our cabins to go to bed.
That is how the third day at Pinecrest goes!!!!!!!
I woke up this and threw my clothes on. We immediately went to breakfast. After breakfast, we went to huddles. We learned to remember to pray for others. We went back to our cabins to change for swimming. The swimming pool is super cold at Pinecrest. After swimming we went back to our cabins to get out of the wet bathing suits and change into - dah dah dah - our MUD PIT clothes! Then we ate lunch and went straight to the mud pit for two hours. The mud pit is so awesome (fun fact about mud pit: if you don't want to get in, too bad, somebody is going to push you in!). After mud pit we went to our cabins to shower. Showers take a long time on mud pit day. After flat time we had dinner. Because we had mud pit, the schedule was a little crazy. After dinner, we did activities. I played soccer and it was super fun. Me and Abram killed it. We walked back from soccer to go change for movie night. I wore my LOVE sweatshirt and shorts. The movie choices were Princess Diaries or Prince Caspian. Of course I chose Prince Caspian. I loved it. Except for the part where the creepy bald cat grandma thing comes out. That was weird. Otherwise, the movie was great and I had an awesome time. During the movie there was a crazy lightening storm, so it made the movie all the more scary. Score! Also, during the movie we got to have canteen. I had a Hershey's bar and Powerade. YUM!
I had to wake up early this morning. Horseback riders had to eat breakfast early because we had to leave early. At the stables, we got to groom the horse and ride it. Also, we walked it and played a game with it. We were out there for three whole hours. When we got back we went straight to lunch. During lunch I got awesome mail from mom and dad. Tonight is the Oscar's - this is Pinecrests way of congratulating campers for getting through the week. I am psyched.
After flat time we went to afternoon activities - the choices were football, frisbee golf, or arts and crafts. I wanted to do arts and crafts, but Mallory sent me to frisbee golf because arts and crafts had too many people. Turns out I'm pretty good at frisbee golf. After afternoon activities, we ate dinner. Then we had skit practice for two hours. Our cabin did a hair salon skit and we plucked Aiden's eyebrows. It was hilarious. For my award, I got Most Likely to be Internet Famous because of my journal and the blog. Then we had a dance party - the best songs were Trouble by Taylor Swift, Moves Like Jagger. After that we had Canteen and then Pinecrest camp was over.
