The Annual Hi-Hills Carnival July 23, 2015
Week five at Hi-Hills marks the much anticipated Carnival Day. On Wednesday, campgrounds converted into a spirited carnival. The morning began over at the Home Winds campus, where water balloon catapults, a dunk tank, cotton candy and a waterslide were waiting for us. Campers shot hoops at the beanbag toss game and arrows in the archery range. Bunk 9 in particular enjoyed squirting each other during a water gun fight. Everyone had a blast posing with silly disguises at our photo booth, and cotton candy was truly the perfect treat. With laughter and smiles all around, we could not have asked for a more fun-filled morning!
In the afternoon, everyone donned their costumes and made their way over to the Athletic Field for even more fun and games. In addition to a water balloon toss game, nail and tattoo station and a pie-eating contest, we enjoyed tasty snow cones, made spin art, and competed in a potato sack race! Our specialty counselors, Mr. Nature and Mr. Em kept the fun going with their flamingo fishing and Coke and Pepsi challenge games. With so many creative costumes, the costume competition was tough to judge. Our winners this year included:
- Anjola and Anna as “Sweet Treats”
- Ellie, Campbell, Quinn, and Bianca as the characters from Inside Out
- Emma, Julia and Erin as characters from Mario Kart
- Betsy and Kiara as clowns
- Nick as Ron Burgundy
- Jason as a grumpy grandma
We all had a fantastic time at carnival, and would like to thank everyone for their participation, creativity and enthusiasm! Look out for photos from carnival and updates in this week’s upcoming issue of the Hi-Hills Herald.
