We started our first full day of Fanari 2013 with morning chapel and the Blessing of the Waters, followed by a yummy breakfast and some cabin clean-up time. Once we were ready for the day, we moved into our daily activity schedule. Each day our campers have Bible Study, Orthodox Life, Athletics, Theater and Diakonia. Today in Athletics we played a little volleyball and enjoyed the beautiful weather.
After dinner we made a slight change to the schedule because of a little rain and decided to give the campers the option of Greek Night or cheering on the Chicago Blackhawks for the NHL Stanley Cup Finals. Big shout-out to Cristin and Tommy for leading and DJ-ing the Greek dancing! The dance floor was packed all night, and the campers and counselors definitely had a great time.
We ended the day with chapel, awarding Spirit Sticks to the 10th and 6th grades, sang a couple of songs (“Pharaoh Pharaoh” and “Father I Adore You”), and then the 11th graders got their 6th grade little brothers & sisters for the week. Now we’re off to Devotionals with our counselors and some much-needed sleep. We’re having a blast and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for us tomorrow!
