CSB2012 Deal Day and Banquet
With the cloud of a premature departure hanging over us, Camp Simcha kicked into highest gear today and ended the session on an amazing note. We were truly pumping at full throttle here in SimchaVille, and we managed to stuff in so may different things.
After lunch, we all gathered in the middle of the dining room where we had the most epic upRoar ever. Everyone got involved, and made sure to make up for all the last time. Campers were hoisted onto shoulders and paraded around the room, while everyone else danced, sang, and cheered them on. After lunch, we headed out to all the workshops to finish and collect all the beautiful projects we created over the summer.
After we had managed to collect all our creations, we all headed back to our bunks to pack. At 5pm we were called to the dining hall for the banquet. And a banquet it was. A hot carving station, onion rings, sesame chicken, Hawaiian chicken, chicken lo mein, sweet and sour chicken, bar-b-que ribs, assorted dips, and fresh fruit.
After we were stuffed to the gills, we were informed that Deal Day had been rescheduled….to today! For those who don’t know, Deal Day is a DisneyWorld worthy experience in which members of the Deal community come down to camp and shower our campers with tons of free gifts and activities. After supper, our campers were given a duffel bag, and were let loose in a room full of gifts. They were able to take whatever they (and their counselor…and their rotator…and whoever else they commissioned) could carry out. There were backpacks, sandals, t-shirts, shorts, sweatpants, pillows, stuffed animals, and various electronics. The campers came out looking like they’ve won the lottery.
