Hye camp week 3 - Wednesday Hye Life Blog

Wednesday started amazingly well with our normal chapel, breakfast, and morning classes routine. The classes went off without a hitch teaching music, Armenian cooking, traditions & customs, and about our Armenian Church.

After morning classes everyone headed to the mess hall for lunch. While eating it began to drizzle which allowed some much needed release from the heat. As the drizzle turned into a soft rain afternoon classes were canceled and it became game and crafts time in the mess hall. 

Luckily the clouds cleared just in time to enjoy a dance in the arbor which gave everyone a nice view of the lake; even if that wasn't what anyone was paying attention to.

Hye Camp Week 3 - Tuesday Hye Life Blog

Tuesday was such a wonderful day at camp, words can hardly explain it, so we hope some pictures will suffice.

Every cabin attended classes on a pluthera of topics, including Armenian History, Music, and Bible study. A favorite of all the campers was Armenian Dancing which was taught by Zar Der Mgrdichian.

After classes and a delicious lunch, campers moved on to our Annual Vatavar Games. There were many water filled events that ranged from a WATERmelon eating contest to trying to hit our boys and girls deans with water balloons. 

After our games, the kids cleaned up and it was time for chapel and dinner. From there we went on an amazing night hike to see the sunset and the stars. Sadly, it was a bit too foggy for the stars to show, but the sun certainley did not disappoint.

Hye camp week 3 - Monday Hye Life Blog

 



Our second day of camp went great! We started off our day with our morning chapel service and then headed off to breakfast  delicous eggs and bacon. The campers then went off to their classes which included a nature walk, Armenian History, and Ice breakers with lots of fun games!  


 

After lunch we rested and prepared for our afternoon activities including canoeing, peddleboats, variety of sports, and arts and crafts!




Archbishop Hovnan Derderian led us in chapel service at our beautiful arbor by the lake.  Where else are you closer to God than is His glorious natural setting!!!!     We ate a filling dinner of chicken, scalloped potatoes, veggies and salad.  We were all full and happy when we had our camp picture taken!

 

After our photo shoot with Srpazan,  we headed  to the Arbor for some Num-Nums followed by talent filled Campfire!  Then off to bed for a good night sleep to start a new day.
