The young men and women of Camp ESCAPE opened their minds to come up with creative games for the camp’s first carnival this past week. Each worked with a counselor to devise a game that offered a chance to win tickets, which could be redeemed for candy and prizes. “They had some great ideas and the games were a lot of fun,” said Jeremy R. Bottorf, an intramural assistant at the Field House, who also provided the photos. “Not only did the campers have a great time playing the games – penny toss, skee-ball, hoop shoot, fishing and an obstacle course – they enjoyed building them, as well.” Campers also made the tickets that were handed out if the games were completed successfully.
