This year at camp, basketball was outside. I like it better inside, because it is too hot outside. But, basketball is my spirit sport. I love basketball! At home, I am on a basketball team so I could use my skills at camp. Whenever we would be finished playing hoops, our activity group would go play on the playground. Melody and Indiana Jones led the activity this year. They made it so much fun for us, and on the last day of the basketball activity, Indiana Jones said everyone would play against him! It was so hard to beat him because he’s so good! We always split the teams equally, so it’s fair.

Before we left for each activity, we had to make sure we had everything we needed. For basketball this included: a t-shirt, sunscreen, sneakers, a water bottle, a hat, sunglasses, and bug spray.

Basketball makes me feel so happy because I love it so much! I’m so glad it’s something I get to do at Camp Gilgal. That is everything I will tell you about basketball and Camp Gilgal 2017!
