Day 14

Today was our second day building the Pirate Ship, and we made a lot of progress. This project has been particularly difficult, but moving through the challenges is helping the team build a stronger bond, and build better communication skills. We still have a lot of work left to go, but since the weather is cooperating a little bit better this week, and because everyone is getting into a groove I am confident that we will finish this project by our deadline! 

This morning I got to go into town to go one a Duck ride through Wisconsin Dells, and that was an amazing experience.The Dells is such a tourist attraction, so being able to go through the town and see all of the atrractions both on land and on water was one of the highlights of my day. Throughout the day, I was feeling a bit under the weather so I spent the afternoon resting in our lodging so I could be prepared to go to evening programming with the campers. The camp had a carnival set up on site, and we got to play games with the campers! There was a petting zoo, corn hole, field games, twister, and at the end the campers got to pie people in the face. Luckily, I wasn't one of the BAM guys that got pinned to get hit, but several of us did get hit. Despite feeling a little sick, this was a great day, and at the end of everyday I am a little bit more greatful that I decided to come on this amazing journey.
