Older Primary Team 2011-2012
Wild River-Wild Weather Camping with 214 and 216

It started raining as soon as we got there. It rained and rained.

We didn’t do all the things we usually do--we missed river day and fishing. Our tents got wet and most of our stuff in the tents got wet, too. There were lots of Tent Caterpillars. There was lots of lightning and super noisy thunder. The Hayride was awesome and the only time we were dry.

It rained and rained.

We played cards, looked at owl pellets, made friendship bracelets, and did crafts.

We planted prairie grass and had a hard time making fires. It rained some more and some moms made a visit to the laundro-mat dryers.

We had very funny skits, Dancing with the Stars, extreme rock, paper scissors, Christmas invades Easter, and Mark and Felicity go Camping, and Tannen was an excellent Dave.

It rained.

We played lots of kickball and did cooking and dishes. We had soggy tent time.

The Vanishing Forest was fun and really interesting and we saw a giant spider.

We made dream catchers and friendship bracelets and got to be with our friends a lot.

Parents in the city were really worried about us. Some grandpas came with us and said we had good attitudes. It got warm and dry on Friday and we had a strong ending. We survived 4 1⁄2 inches of rain.

It was really, really fun!
