At the Y, we are starting to gear up for summer camp. I know spring isn’t even here yet, but it is never too early to get started. Thinking about summer camp, there is one thing that comes to mind. Pies. Lots and lots of pies. If you have worked at a camp before, you know exactly what I am talking about. If you haven’t, you are wondering why on earth would you think of pie when you think of summer camp. This week our picture comes from when I worked at Camp Trinity. It was the first summer ever of Camp Trinity and we wanted to get things kicked off the right way. During our morning assembly we were going to cover the rules for camp, but we wanted to do it in a fun way. So this happened:
We had three main rules at camp. So that morning I took not 1 pie, not 2 pies, but 3 pies to the face. As you can see from this picture we did not cover how to properly pie someone with this girl. If you are ever pieing someone, do them a favor and hold the sides of the pie tin so you don’t punch them in the face like you see here. Also, notice the wall on the left. The first pie came with enough force to send some of it to the back wall. We made sure to protect the floor, didn’t realize the back wall was in a danger zone. Needless to say, the kids had a lot of fun covering the rules that morning. They were a little disappointed the following Monday when there were no pies involved in covering the rules.
And I’ll leave you with this one more helpful hint about pies: use shaving cream not whipped cream. While at first you would think that whipped cream will taste delicious while shaving cream would taste disgusting and burn your eyes, shaving cream does not spoil. Whipped cream does taste delicious, but 30 minutes later, no matter how much you wash your face off, you will be left with the smell of rotten milk. It is not pleasant for you or anyone near you. Shaving cream, however, leaves you smelling fantastic for the rest of the day.
until next time…
