Our Best Day Yet!

We are past the midpoint of our week and it certainly wasn’t a boring day! The morning consisted of classes about Armenian language and cooking mantuh. It was just before lunch that the cabins learned who their teammates would be for the third annual Hye Camp Dunlapian Games! With team names consisting of Lahmajun, Kebab, Koufte, Boreg and Baklava (among others), they sat at lunch with their new teamates to discuss strategy. Over version of the olympics consisted of 12 teams competing in challenges such as three-legged race, archery challenge, wheelbarrow race and canoe challenge. It was a tough and competitive series of events, but in the end Team Dolma finished victorious. After the games officially ended with all teams giving it their all, there was some much needed cooling off by jumping into the lake!

Everyone headed back for a little relaxation before getting ready for chapel and dinner. We then got ready for the grooviest night of camp: The Homeland Pride Dance. Everyone dressed up and danced all night until they ran out of energy and called it a night. Needless to say it was an action packed day and night….and that’s why we’ll put the dance pictures online on Thursday ;-)
