Welcome to Camp Pepin!
Week #8 RecapAug 12 2014
Our Challenge Course at Camp Pepin was full of excitement this week with over 20 campers ready to conquer their fear of heights and excel through each challenge. Each day, Cory, our Challenge Course expert, lead campers through the Faith Pole, Zip Line Course, Climbing Wall, Giant Swing, and the Ropes Course. The campers had a great time, some still feeling an adrenaline rush from all of it, and excited for the next challenge they will face! Great job campers for conquering your fears and challenging yourselves! Heepwah!
Week #6 RecapJul 29 2014
Week #6 at YMCA Camp Pepin was the 2nd Annual Olympics Week. We kicked off the week with a special opening ceremony that showed the history of Camp Pepin and gave the counselors a chance to present cabin colors to their campers. Each cabin had a special flag with bandanas to match. The week was filled with the usual camp festivities, such as capture the flag and friendship fire, with the addition of some special activities specific to Olympic Week. Some of these included: an all camp egg toss competition, a massive musical chairs game (100 chairs), and even an ice cream eating contest! Although it would be hard to choose a highlight of the week, one amazing part is that every single cabin won at least one medal during the all camp Olympic activities. Overall the week was a huge success. Keep your eyes open for next year's Olympic week and be sure to sign up! Heepwah!
Week #5 RecapJul 22 2014
Week #5 at YMCA Camp Pepin focused on the camp games we play together. Throughout the week, campers played 1-2 games at night, as an individual, as teams, and as a cabin. The different games that were played throughout the week included: Capture the Flag, Message to Garcia, Wells Fargo, Dino Egg Hunt, and Mr. and Mrs. Camp Pepin! Dino Egg Hunt was chosen as the favorite game by our campers. One of the cabins found their Dino Egg is record time...under one minute! Great job campers!
