It’s been a busy first night here at Wapo! After registration, campers met with their cabins, ate dinner, played icebreaker games, and had their first Bible study. Afterwards, they were introduced to the rest of the camp staff including the counselors, the First Aid staff, the Waterfront staff, the Canteen staff, and the Art Shop staff. Next, the campers participated in Alpha (4th-6th grade) or Beta (7th-9th grade) Activity. We ended the night with a campfire… and now it’s lights out!
♫…Don’t you know He’s a radical God?…♫ The entire staff sang “Radical God” for the campers.

For the Beta (7th-9th grade) activity, the campers raced to unwrap a clue hidden in saran wrap.
After unwrapping the clue, they had to go to nine different stations and compete in silly challenges like this one! Campers had to move a cracker from their forehead to their mouth without using their hands!
It was a tough, but hilarious challenge!
Another challenge was stacking these cups in the order of the New Testament books!
At this station, campers had to complete a water balloon relay without using their hands!
It was a close one, but in the end, the ladies from Crossfire 401/402 won!
During the Alpha activity, the Alpha cabins competed in the Human Scavenger Hunt. Each cabin had to compete in a series of challenges like make origami, hum a song, impersonate a famous person etc.
In the end, there was a tie-breaker between the guys from Upper East and the girls from Crossfire 307/308!
The tie-breaker challenge was to create a dance to a song… the ladies performed the “Hokey Pokey”!
The guys sang, “Wrecking Ball”!
With a hilarious performance, the guys from Upper East won! Congrats guys!
It was a beautiful night for our first campfire!
It was awesome to hear familiar songs and to get to know some new songs too!
Now our campers are back at their cabins for cabin devotions and then it’s time for lights out! Goodnight!
