First off, I think you’ll be happy to know that those two events did not take place at the same time. We like to promote safety here at Delanco Camp and we did successfully, if I do say so myself.

Today started like a typical day at Camp. It was hot. Now, when I say hot, I don’t mean like ‘Man, who cranked up the heat in here?!’ hot. I mean like ‘When did the sun move about 3 million miles closer to the Earth?!’ hot. It was near unbearable. Lots of humidity, little breeze and few clouds to provide us with any relief, which made the swim test all the more of a necessity to the average person looking to beat the heat.

After the swim test came another way to beat the heat, the Slip ‘n Slide, which took place on the soccer field and was an instant success, as a great number of us took the opportunity to beat the heat again.

While we were there, Shannon Harris and some other counselors took the opportunity to perform a rain dance, which as you may have guessed it, brought the rain within an hour of the performance and boy, did it rain.

The lake was closed and we were all forced to scurry inside but, I don’t think any of us cared as the formerly unbearable temperature dropped at least 10 to 15 degrees. One could tell that many people were relieved by the decrease of the temperature.

Then we went to the evening service spoken by our speaker this week, Ron Smith. His sermon will be posted for your listening pleasure as soon as we can work out the kinks of posting audio files with a really slow internet connection. 🙂

    1. Native Americans do a "rain dance" to ask their gods for rain. It doesn't sound like that was the case here since there was already plenty of rain.

      1. My name is Tom McCormick, and I only commented because it sounded like the rain dance was done before any rain came, thus thinking the rain dance was done to bring rain, just like Native Americans sure a good time was had by all.
