In the morning, the Junior campers had a friendship circle on teamwork. They had to create a pirate ship using their bodies. Communication was key for this task! Their next task was working at their tables to create pirate ships using an assembly of materials, such as popsicle sticks, straws, cups, and tape. The seniors made parrots. In the afternoon, the Juniors made nice messages in a bottle to give to the Senior class. The seniors learned about pirate flags and made their own.
