Halye G., Age 8
Tribe of Simeon
My name is Halye. This is my first time at Camp Gilgal and my favorite part of Camp Gilgal so far is Counselor Hunt. The rules are you have to wear sneakers because we will play in the woods. The camp staff will give you a buddy. My buddy was a girl named Meaghan. The camp staff pick an animal they want to be and they say what animal they are and how you get them back to the campfire. There were Rolly Pollies, Siamese cats, a black bear, an annoying leopard and even a dinosaur! The hardest animal to catch were the Siamese cats because they were very scared and sassy. Some hide in trees and some are very easy to find but hard to get back to the campfire. Some are annoying and some are dangerous. We played the game on the Fourth of July. After we played we watched the fireworks. I loved the game. I think Counselor Hunt was the best game I have ever played in my life because it was so fun and different!
