Today I had “Tiny House Big Living” first period, where we had to build a house out of the same materials that were used when we observed it. We were so close to winning because at the last second I suddenly remembered everything that I viewed before!! It was so much fun memorizing all the different objects in the box. Next I had “Netflix” where we played charades with the option of talking, and my cabin was versing other Eagles. I acted out “frustration” and my cabin and I had so much fun playing together as a team. After that I had “Fuller House” where we had to collect plastic balls while holding hands with people. I was holding hands with my counsellor and my best friend, but I was in the middle of them so I was carrying all the balls. ┬áThen I had MUCH Dance Party where the girl cabins versed the guy cabins to a dance off. My friends and I did the dab, and I also won a t-shirt! And finally I had Instructional Swim and we learned how to dive and we played the game Iceberg. It’s so hard to choose what activity was my favourite today because I loved them all so much!! I am definitely coming back to Green Acres next year!!

Today I went to cooking with the Buffalo cabin for first period, and we made pizza pockets which were really tasty! Next I went to see the play The Lion King, and I really enjoyed it cause it was funny and all of the campers were great singers. After that I went to help out the Beavers at Swim, where I helped the instructors with handling the kids and helping to teach them, which was a really good way for me to connect with the campers as well as the swim staff. Next the LTPs had a potluck where everyone brought in snacks and food because a lot of the LTPS aren’t staying for the entire summer, and there were a lot of contributions. After that I had Jr. Arts and Crafts and Instructional Swim!

Today I played Tetherball and Gaga first period, it was a lot of fun! Then I had Instructional Swim where I practiced my breaststroke and whip kick. After that I had Karate where I learned how to kick and block punches! Next I had a dress rehearsal for the play The Lion King, and I’m casted as Simba! I memorized all the lines, and I have many solo performances! My favourite song to sing is “Just Can’t Wait To Be King” and I really enjoy practicing with all my friends in the play. My mom and dad are coming to see me perform tonight and hopefully my aunt and uncle will join them! I have a full lion costume, and my aunt knit extra gloves and mane for when Simba grows up. Even though I’m a little nervous I’m so excited for everyone to see the play tonight and I can’t wait!

Finally, we had Copper enamelling and Sr. Visual Arts which were both so much fun because it taught me how to be creative and unique!

Today I had Recreational Swim at the Slides pool and it was so much fun! I went down the slides with my friends and I dipped my feet in the water. Next I had Survival, where we played Predator and Pray, and Manhunt. I didn’t get caught once! After that my cabin and I had iCompute, and we made stories and finished our comics from last week. Fourth period I had Baton Twirling and I learned how to do cool new tricks! After that I had Kangoo Jumps and it’s so much fun but it was really hard to balance in the shoes at first. And finally, I had All That Glitter. My favourite activity is All That Glitter because it makes me be creative and I get to decorate ordinary objects with different and colourful materials.
