We have arrived at the camp! It is called San Ignacio de Compostela and what a cool place it is.
The bus brought us in and we must say that the bus driver is very talented! He was weaving in and out of traffic. When we got here to camp, the roads were made for cars and not so much the large type of bus we were in. In that sense, he was within a foot from cars that were parked, the pillars of the entrance, and trees along the road. Words don’t do it justice but trust us. It was impressive!
Like I said earlier, we are at San Ingicio de Compostela. But the town that we are actually in the town of San Ignacio in El Salvador if you’d like to look it up on a map. We are pretty close to Honduras in the northern part of the country.
Once we got to the camp, we did some ice breaker games or get to know you games. We played a game called The Delicate Stick where we had to introduce ourselves and then hold a Popsicle stick between our finger and the person next to us. It took patience and helped us learn more about everyone.
We also played gorilla, man, gun also. It is similar to rock, paper, scissors but more interactive.
We have gotten to learn from people like Mallory, CJ, Garret, Marco, and more during our orientation sessions.
We also did Cabin Assignments to tell the Pine Cove and Salvadorian staff who they were going to be with for each of the sessions. People got really excited because we were already getting to know each other. Check it out!
Tomorrow campers will get here and we will start camp! There is still a lot of things that we need to do to get camp ready. The staff to get trained, classes set up for campers, and continuing to build relationships with the Salvadorian staffers.
