All About Snow Camp! February 17, 2009Posted by Carly in Uncategorized.
Hiya everyone! I got back from Snow Camp today!! It was soo fun!
Now, because I am starving and insanly lazy, I am going to be writing this very very fast. There will be spelling mistakes. There will be puntuation mistakes. it will be sloppy. etc…i might edit it later to make it look nicer 🙂
Got on the big greyhound bus at about 11 a.m. with eight of my friends. We found a chunk of empty seats in the back and sadly discovered that the seat in front of the bathroom (yeah theres a bathroom on the bus) wouldn’t go back far enough to trap someone in the bathroom for a while (we did that last year to my freind Kelly…heheh)
anyway we get there and we go to our cabin. we find out that we are sharing the cabin with another group. now, my group is one of the biggest groups in the whole youth group. we so is this group. and we don’t like them. and we don’t like their leader. and they dont do anything. they just sit there and text and glare at us and do makeup. and they got to the room faster so they got the bunks. we had to bring 5 mattresses into the room and put them on the ground so we could have enough beds! WE WERE SAD!!!
Good thing our awesome leader, Annie, who is a sutdent at CU and a really hilarious person overall, talked to Forrest (the leader of the whole youth group)…and we got to move cabins! We got to go into a cabin with some freshman girls. they were ok, but they didnt like to stay up late or anything 😦 except for brittney z. we call her B.Z….she is awesome she is my favorite freshman and i luurve her) anyway, we only have 4 mattresses on the ground in this room and we are a lot happier!
The activity for the day was to get into our activity teams (these are assigned randomly…me and my freinds ignored it and went into team tie-dye) (also, the theme for snow camp was “rewind” so everything was named for old famous things) anyway the activity was that we got a box, 2 swim noodles, duct tape, and 2 pbc pipes. We had to make a bobsled that would go the farthest when pushed down a snowy path. The bobsleds could only hold one person, and being the smallest, I was put into the box that had noodles on the bottom to make it slide. I also had a sweet helmet that other team members had made that looked like it had rockets on the side on. We went to the starting place and the strong guys started pushing the sled…faster and faster…we reached the “stop pushing the sled” line and they gave one final push. it was too hard and they pushed too near the top of the box and not enough at the bottom. The whole box tipped forward (still moving very fast) and I flew out…superman-ing it for a good 5 feet before slamming into the hard snow. yaaaaay. there was already spray paint on the snow marking where a previous team’s sled had gone…and my face went right into it. the spray paint was red…and everyone thought i had split open my cheek! I wasn’t sure because my face was numb. But spray paint doesn’t come off easily, and I looked like I had a gross scab on my cheek for the rest of the weekend 🙂
After a yummy dinner of lasagna, my group headed to club, where we heard this awesome guy named Albus Brooks (yes, Albus, like Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter)! He was black, talked like those cool black guys, was about 30 had a high voice (it wasnt all deep, it was high and awesome) and was once a football player for CU. He was SWEET! Anyway, he talked about this chapter in the bible, and then me and my group went and talked about what Albus had said. After that, we had some free time and it was lights out at 11:30…but lights out didn’t stop us from talking 🙂 we got to bed at 1:00 at night 😛
stay tuned for the second day of snow camp! being posted pretty soon!!
