Mandarin Camp 2020 Day 4

Dear Parents,

After a relaxing movie night, campers awoke reenergized and ready for the fourth day of camp. After a big breakfast, the teams joined together and went on a hike for the whole morning. The first stop was sliding on the grass hills by Giant Swing and bug catching. Campers got up close and personal with both the flora and fauna of camp. After, we walked up to the river to cool off. Campers got their river tracing shoes on and splashed around in the chilly water. Of course, everything seems chilly compared to the temperature recently.

Campers returned in time for lunch and had a nice rest. In the afternoon, the teams rotated between two activities -- Pillo Polo and Slackline. The latter is an activity very similar to walking a tightrope. Luckily for the kids, the "tightrope" is only one foot off the ground. There are several fun balancing games kids play during the activity. Pillo Polo is one of my personal favorites. It is one of our camp sports that puts kids on a more level playing field. We have yet to find any campers who have private Pillo Polo lessons throughout the year. It is similar to field hockey, but played with a frustratingly difficult ball to manage.

Right now, campers are getting ready for showers. After dinner and journals tonight, we will have our party night. Campers will listen to music, play carnival-style games, and have a nice cold treat.

Goodnight from Camp Taiwan,


As for the Dropbox link below, not all folders will have pictures added every day. The first few days, most pictures are sorted by team, not activity. Some activities lead to more picture taking opportunities. If some teams have more pictures than other teams, we will try and even it out by the end of the week (but no promises!!). We do our best, but our main concern is your campers' safety and programming, pictures are a distant fourth or fifth (even though they may be number one to you). Please note, we will not reply to emails about photos. Enjoy.

Please find a Dropbox Link below. Photos will be uploaded to this folder every evening -- usually by 8 p.m.
