Of course this event was not without strange and interesting games. Which is why I gave this post the title of "I Have Been Gooped!" On Friday night we played a game called "Counselor Hunt". It was basically a game of Hide-n-Go Seek. If you got caught...well...you got gooped. I thought I had found the perfect spot. It was dark, and I was dressed in black and covered with a dark sheet. I heard the footsteps first. Then I heard, "I think it is a garbage can." They walked by and I thought I was safe. Then I felt a poke. Then a double poke. That was when I realized that I had been found and busted. I decided to the most grown up thing I could do. I popped out of that sheet and scared the four kids half to death. They got me back though when I ended up with chocolate syrup and baked beans in my hair. I know...gross! But at least I didn't get the honey and flour! (See, there are always things to be grateful for!)
There was also this giant swing in the ropes course. It pulled you up forty feet and then someone pulled the chord and you fell thirty feet before you began to swing. It was a pretty intense yet fun experience. Notice how my group has a death grip on that black bar. At least I look like I am having fun.
I also had some quiet time on Saturday morning before things got crazy. There were four rocking chairs on the porch of the staff cabin. I really enjoyed time in the far rocker with my cup of coffee and my Bible.
The view from there wasn't that bad either.
