We had a great camp this year using the character trait of Alertness. Each day we had a different definition for Alertness that was to be memorized. Each of 12 teams had a daily captain that was taught by his team that definition and if recited to the coach their team received a treat. Needless to say they did great and a lot of treats were handed out. Other highlights was the home run derby, games, and a visit from the Whitecaps chaplain and two players. Each participant was given a baseball to get their autographs. The final day, as always, was fun with the dunk tank, super slide, obstacle course competition, and goody bags with T-shirts, etc. inside. We got some great feedback from parents of how excited the kids were and how they were already looking forward to next year! One favorite game that the players liked was the Ricochet balls...they also taught a great lesson about character and a true bounce (good character) and a ricochet bounce (bad character).
