Even though many of our camps are marine science based and we have a lot of fun handling organisms, going kayaking, and hiking in state parks, that doesn’t mean we don’t participate in all the traditional fun of a summer at camp. Whether it’s tie-dyeing Field Station t-shirts or venturing out on one of our research vessels, camp at CBFS gives you a wide range of experiences and a whole lot of adventures.
Last week, our Intermediate Kayaking Camp and Marine Invertebrate Camp competed against each other in a CBFS classic: The Camper Olympics. After competitions like volleyball and relay races, counselors tallied up all the points and crowned the winning team!
Following the closing ceremonies, campers headed over to the campfire for skits and songs performed by their, if not all musically gifted, extremely enthusiastic counselors. They roasted marshmallows for s’mores and told jokes and stories. Some chatted by the fire while others tossed a Frisbee in the field. It was a great time to relax after a long afternoon of competition.
The next day was the last day of camp for both groups, celebrated with a day at the beach and a barbeque! If that’s not a great way to end a week at camp, we don’t know what is.
