Hello Again, from the KBBC sports desk. The Communication Games were very exciting today! Refuse was the communication function of the day and each team organized a protest. There were calls for MORE ICE CREAM! LESS BUGS! from one corner. Another team wanted to eliminate wasted time spent on dressing and washing faces. And 2 teams were split down the middle. And one group exerted their rights by not telling us at all. We continue to have wonderful weather and exciting times in the afternoon. Check back tomorrow for more news!

Camp News Day 5

Hello Communication Fans! Today’s competition was all about the CAPTURE! Teams worked together to obtain items using powers of persuasion and questioning. Teams shared that they got sunglasses and items to make smoothies. Two teams required the sports announcers to guess what they obtained. TENOKIROOCSEAK captured the gold! Swimming was once again a popular afternoon activity. And everyone is looking forward to the Communication Games Dance tonight.
