CIS: 2016, Week 9: Hollywood

Lights, Camera, Action!

Our final week of camp has begun! Hollywood week is off to a great start. Our younger girls enjoyed a fun tea party put on by Ms. Whitney and tomorrow everyone will enjoy a fun movie trip to see Finding Dory!

CIS: 2016, Week Six: Space Jam

Space Jam Was Out of This World!

It may have been a short week, but your camper had tons of fun! Because we did not have camp on Monday, our field trip this week was our biggest yet! We went to Desoto Caverns and allowed each group to pick five of the new attractions offered. Every group got the chance to go into the caverns and learn some history about them.

Even our youngest campers enjoyed and learned more about the caverns. The laser light show at Desoto Caverns was amazing and all our campers enjoyed it!

Next week is a big week for Camp Indian Springs: it is Color Wars week! Every year campers love Color Wars week and all the games that go on. Our theme for this year is a surprise, but campers will find out what it is on Monday during a fun video made by our Head Counselor, Devin. Devin has worked hard to come up with fun games that all campers will enjoy. Our campers will be divided up into teams that have a corresponding color and throughout the week there will be games where teams can earn points. The team with the most points at the end of the week wins Color Wars!

CIS: 2016, Week Five: Party in the USA

The Party is Over but the Fun Has Just Begun!

Week five has ended, but there is still so much more to come! Our camper’s had a blast during Party in the USA week and we are excited to introduce Space Jam next week!IMG_5198

Because we will not have camp on Monday, our field trip next week is our biggest yet! We will be going to Desoto Cavern and giving your camper the opportunity to explore the many activities offered – including the caves!

This week we had only one counselor receive a pie in the face: Lexey, a high school counselor from the 9-10 Girls. Head Counselor Devin shook things up this week: in order to randomly select an age group and then a gender, Devin used fun trivia questions and added a game of rock paper scissors between the two counselors that won trivia. The counselor that won, Jalon from the 11-13 Boys, then had his camper of the week select who he wanted to pie.IMG_5050

All campers enjoyed this new system and began to cheer for the counselor they wanted to win and chant the name of the counselor they wanted to see get pied.

As always if you ever have any questions about camp feel free to contact us by email or phone. Have a great Fourth of July! We look forward to an exciting next week!

CIS: 2016, Week Five: Party in the USA

It’s a Party in the USA!

The party has begun! We are having an awesome time at camp this week and just wrapped up Camper’s Choice! Every Wednesday campers get to pick an activity that they want to do. This week we had Chef School, Mad Science, Art, Swimming Hole, Batting Cage, and Tennis!

In Chef School, we made patriotic cookies by decorating them with fun icing and candies!  Mad Science made a “cup of science” by layering different types of Powerade that had different sugar contents. The result was a fun, patriotic treat! IMG_5067IMG_3529

Our younger campers had a great time at cosmic bowling and we even had some tricks! Our older campers go tomorrow! If you ever have any questions feel free to contact us at 205-982-9720!

CIS: 2016, Week Four: Spy Kids: Mission Impossible

Mission Accomplished!

Our Camp Indian Springs Agents have completed their mission! All campers had an awesome week at camp, learned some new spy skills, and worked together!

A special thanks to Spy Master Matt and Cameron Mckinley for helping our campers become spies and for helping them perfect their skills!

Today we had three counselors receive a pie in the face! Cheyenne, a CIT, received a pie from our camper of the week, Chetam Pisupati! Emily, the 7-8 Boys College Counselor, finished her last week with us this summer so she was pied by Parker Yeary. Finally, Sebastian, the 11-13 Boys College Counselor, was pied by John Romei!

 

A reminder that next week is Party in the USA week! All camper will go to Oak Mountain Lanes to enjoy bowling and we will have fun USA themed activities throughout the week.

Have a great weekend!

CIS: 2016, Week Four: Spy Kids: Mission Impossible

Spy Kids: Mission Impossible

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to have an awesome week at camp! Camp Indian Springs is turning out even more special agents thanks to Spy Master Matt! Matt has put together a series of obstacles and clues to lead your camper to their treasure: a nice cold treat. Along the way they have to work together to accomplish their goal and try to figure out who the double agent is! To root out the culprit, campers asked questions and investigated who they thought was leading them astray. Once they caught the double agent, the campers got to pour ice-cold water on the agent!

To keep practicing their skills, campers are participating in a Breakout Camp Indian Springs session that is similar to the Breakout Birmingham scenarios.

Our younger campers have to solve the puzzle left by Pirate Pete and Ron the Swan to find the stolen treasure in less than forty-five minutes! Cameron McKinley from Spain Park runs the Breakout Sessions with the help of her daughter.

For camper’s choice this week, we had two new activities: Golf Academy and Swimming Hole (11-13 only). We had our usual activities like Chef School, Advanced Art, and Mad Science, but with a special spy twist. In Advanced Art campers made decoders to help decipher clues, we practiced using invisible ink in Mad Science, and we made trail mix in Chef School to help keep up our energy (without nuts, of course)!

 

CIS: 2016, Week Three: Retro Week

Retro Week is a Thing of The Past!

We went to the disco, practiced our dance moves, made some friends, and now we’re ready to boogie on home! We had a great week and made so many memories. This week, our campers got to enjoy roller skating, a fun tie-dye project, and other Retro Week activities!

We had two counselors get pied this week! 11-13 Boy’s counselor, Jack, and 11-13 Girl’s counselor, Carol, both received a pie in the face. The 11-13 Boy’s camper of the week pied Jack and the 9-10 Girl’s camper of the week pied Carol.

Be sure to join us next week for Spy Kids: Mission Impossible! We have tons of fun activities planned, including our own version of Breakout Birmingham: Breakout Camp Indian Springs! We will have a field trip to the McWane Science Center and a fun scavenger hunt there! Don’t miss out!

It’s never too late to join camp, just register online and come to camp to finalize all the details! We hope to see you next week!
