Sundays at Calumet mean our awesome worships in the ODC. Judy Smith, our Music and Worship Director, goes above and beyond to make each Sunday's music the best it can be for the people who come and share in worship with us. This morning, Judy put together an eight-piece band to preform "Trouble Won't Go," a song Calumet learned a few years ago from the Youth Gathering that takes place in New Orleans:
Girls Cabin 11 ... Unit 4 ... Pizza Night at the Dining Hall. It was very nice to have the opportunity to meet this great group of girls and to find out what kinds of things they enjoyed about this recent week at camp. Their cabin group is made of girls from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, and Florida. They spent the week together, getting to know one another, trying new things that they wouldn't otherwise get to do, and having a blast with their counselors and their Unit Leader, Ben. It's great to see the laughter and the agreement that Calumet is just the BEST!
Flash Mobs are all the rage these days. Groups of people will break out in a spontaneous dance routine in front of a crowd for fun. Tonight, at second dinner, GC8, led by Anna Donovan and Katie Schmidt, did a flash mob to Robyn's "Call Your Girlfriend." The girls all dressed up, put on an impressive dance routine, and the entire dining hall cheered them on. Check it out below:
It's a fantastic day on the shores of Ossipee Lake! The sun is shining, the campers are laughing, and the counselors are getting plans ready to go for this weekends busy schedule. Some of the campers will be going home tomorrow, some are going on daytrips hikes, some are going on backpacking overnights, and some are sticking around camp and making use of this wonderful resource. One of the things that makes Calumet so special is that there is ALWAYS something to do, and there are ALWAYS great counselors around who are helping to make it all happen. Kids love Calumet.

The theme of the day on Thursday at Calumet is "We're Gathered." Put simply, we find ourselves alongside different people everyday, and when we come together with those people and work together, great things can happen. For today's Discovery Time, Abby Grant in GT1 had her campers complete a handful of challenges where they had to work together to accomplish their goal. Here are the campers attempting (and basically succeeding) to make their way out of a human knot...blindfolded.
