Seussical Summer Camp Dance

Tuesday, we had a full day of activities here at camp! Some campers went to Lake LBJ for tubing, wakeboarding, and rides on our Banana boat. Others took a jump into the cool waters of Lake Ted off of the Blob. On land, campers took dance classes, created art in our Arts & Crafts shed, honed their skills on the tennis and basketball courts, climbed new heights on our rock climbing wall, and perfected their culinary skills in our Caribbean cooking class.

In the evening, boy campers and girl campers of all ages gathered together for our first true theme dance of the term – Seussical! Everyone dressed in their best Dr. Seuss-inspired guises to celebrate the night. We saw Thing 1 and Thing 2, Red Fish and Blue Fish, the Grinch, the Lorax, Horton from Horton Hears a Who, and even some citizens of Whoville itself!

Campers danced under a grove of Lorax trees, ate green eggs and ham freshly made over an open griddle and “Grinch pies” – a creation of green pudding and vanilla wafers – explored the book “Hop on Pop” brought to life in a bouncy castle, engaged in some friendly cup-stacking competition, sub Cat in the Hat hats for cups, built personalized “Truffle Trees,” stretched to their limits in our gigantic inflatable Twister game, and sang along to the infamous “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” The “Cat in the Hat” movie was screening during the event so campers could choose to relax and enjoy the film if ever the activities became overwhelming or they needed a break from all of the dancing.

We’ve included some of our favorite costumes from the evening below, but be sure to check our Waldo photo app and Instagram for even more highlights!
