Well the first day of camp was really exciting, finding out about all those groovy activities we were gonna do. I guess the counselors decided not to really plan anything for the first day, because we were gonna be so busy for the next 2 weeks. So we just sorta hung around the Rec Hall, played some tag out on the main field near the dining hall, and talked about the Talent Show and the Olympics. Then we had dinner and played cards in the Rec Hall until bedtime.
Now if any of you future readers have read my camp entries before, you know that there's only one thing I really don't like about camp...the bathroom! This year, I'm in the Yellow Canaries cabin, which is the farthest one from the bathroom! Each cabin has 20 minutes in the bathroom every morning and every night to brush our teeth, use the toilets, and wash up if we need to. Each cabin also gets 2 assigned days for showers each week. The Red Robins go first, then the Blue Jays, and last the Yellow Canaries. If we have to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, we have to get a bathroom "buddy" to walk to the bathroom with us. This is what the bathroom looks like:
There's one huge sink, a dinky mirror, 3 toilets (with no stalls and no privacy!), and one shower. So when it was finally the Yellow Canaries turn in the bathroom, Lisa and I walked down the path together. (We were bathroom buddies). Raychel and Shante' were still getting their jammies on.
We were the first ones at the sink to brush our teeth. Shante' and Raychel finally got there and had to wait for us to finish.
Since we don't like using the bathroom in front of each other, we all agree to wait outside as each person takes their turn. Then we walk back to our cabin. Each night we get half an hour to mess around before lights out.
Shante' likes to brush her hair before she goes to bed.
Raychel was reading the latest issue of "Tiger Beat". (I hope she lets me borrow it when she's finished!)
Lisa brought her "Connect Four" game along to keep in the cabin. We sit up on my bunk and play a few games.
*YAWN* I'm getting kinda sleepy, future readers. Next time, I'll tell ya about what I'm gonna do for the talent show, (I should know by then), and maybe what some of my other friends are doing too!
Until then, future readers,
