Cheif and Princesses Weekend

I have a fun weekend coming up...yes I do!  Guess who is coming to Kanakuk to get ready for the summer....all the Chief's and Princesses!  Yep, all you Kicks and Kiowas get excited because those princesses that were elected at K-2 last summer are coming to prepare to make summer fun for you!  What do we do?  Well, we help them plan stunt, we tell them what its going to be like as a princess, and we have lots of fun.  Can you imagine coming to camp before it starts!  We might even have a tribal warball game.  Yep..Kicks versus Kiowas.  Its not for points of course, just to get the excitement going for competition.  (Is anyone singing the competition song in their head like I am?)  My favorite warball game is the Kicks and Kiowas verses the Choctaw and Cherokee Chiefs.  (Remember we have got the 18 year old princesses and chiefs that are not only going to K-1 but also K-Kountry and K-2).  I get to play that game and I plan on wearing one blue and white sock and one red and white sock.  The girls need to win this one!

The most important thing that we do this weekend is challenge these princesses to lead you and lead you well!  I am excited for you to meet them.  You will have to stay tuned on Monday because I will post pics!

See ya on Friday!

Fur Coat

I am wearing a coat today.  I don't understand how it can be 80 degrees outside one day and now its 50!  Burrr...  A friend sent me this.  Since I am wearting a coat today I thought it was fitting.  I am glad I am not wearing this coat.

I am impressed that all those animals can stay still.  My piper would have never sat there like that animal did around her neck!  Are you ready to not wear winter clothes like me?  Bring on the shorts!

Jesus Throughout the Bible

I saw this today and I was floored.  This kid knows the bible sooooo well.  I am sure some of you Champion's Walkers know it well too!  Even though Jesus' name is not mentioned in the bible God always shows how He is at work in His plan of salvation!  Check this kid out!

K-1 Parties

I spent some time this week planning the Menus for our parties at kamp.  All of that is a surprise but I thought I would share the parties with you.  The descriptions are not done and we will be sending them with your kamper packet, but I thought I would give you an inside look.

We have not decided which parties would be in what part of the month term, so stay tuned for that when we send out our info magazine!  If you are a 13 day kamper you will get two and a 28 night camper will get all four.  I will say, we might throw some surprise parties on you this get ready.

2011 Parties at K-1

Kountry Klub - you never know, we could be doing activities from the finest of country clubs OR the club could be run "KOUNTRY" style.  Can you imagine hillbillies playing golf or going to the spa?  We might want to put up the nice table cloths........

Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory....I have one word for you.  Candy at camp.  Enough said.

Gold Rush - We will go back to the mid 1800s and search for unfound gold.  This will be a fun adventure.

Shipwrecked - A cruise ship shipwrecked....sounds bad but I promise that it will be worth the "wreck"!

The descriptions in the camper magazine will explain the potential costume ideas!!!  We are already starting to plan what we are going to do.......I love my job!
