The key to being a successful camp counselor is the ability to adapt on the fly. After a sunny, warm day, we had set our sights on holding our opening campfire this evening. Unfortunately, as we were ready to line up and head to the Indian Council Fire, the weather did not cooperate and forced us back into the shelter of our bunks. As I made my evening rounds to visit each cabin, I was amazed to see the campers and counselors playing card games, knock hockey, pop-shot basketball, and even renditions of “Takajo’s Got Talent.” In every bunk, there were counselors on the floor right in the thick of the action. What could have been a source of great disappointment turned out to be an impromptu night of bunk bonding and fun.
