What a great first full day of Fanari! The weather was wonderful and the campers had a blast. Our theme this year is Christian Friendship, and we’ve challenged the campers to meet someone new every day. Needless to say they’re having a great time making new friends!
We started our day with morning chapel, a sermon from Fr. John, and the Blessing of the Waters. After breakfast and our cabin clean-up time we started our activity rotations. Campers played basketball, soccer, frisbee, and kickball in Athletics and got to work on their skits in Theater. They learned about trust in Bible Study and had some great discussions in Orthodox Life. Our Diakonia staff worked with the campers as they started their projects for the week.
Free time was so much fun- campers played lots of soccer, enjoyed some time in the lake, and hung out with their friends down by the water. We were so lucky to have such wonderful weather to enjoy some time together.
Tonight we had our annual Fanari Games! The entire camp had a GREAT time cheering each other on, playing relay games, and they all dressed in grade-specific colors to really get into the spirit. The energy was contagious and the campers really got into the spirit of the games with lots of cheers and encouragement. Big congratulations to the 8th grade and the 11th grade for winning in their respective divisions! The 6th and 7th grades each won Spirit Sticks for the day- keep up the great work guys!
Evening chapel, a sermon from Fr. Christodoulos, and a rousing rendition of Deep with Fr. George rounded out our day. Campers are in their cabins now and will surely sleep well tonight!
Goodnight campers, thank you for a wonderful day of Fanari!
