Recreation

Sign-up will occur on the first day of camp until 10:00 p.m. accepting registration for Kickball and Volleyball. Please note that only sponsors may register their teams. Recreation schedules will be posted on the front door of the MEC beginning the second day of camp. Teams must be ready to play by their game time. If they are not ready, game time is forfeit time. Upon the advice of the Children’s Worker Advisory Council, each team that signs up will play only one game per day. It will not be a competitive tournament. This will allow each cabin to plan their daily activities better eliminating the “unknown” element of tournament timing. 5 

Co-Ed Kickball

All teams will field 10 players. Each team should have an equal number of girls and boys (more girls are ok).

Co-Ed Volleyball 

Teams may play with 6-8 players. Competing teams must have the same number of players and each team must have the same number of girls and boys playing at all times. No officials will be provided. 

Wild and Crazy Recreation 

Participant groups of 10-15 children with an adult leader will be assigned an activity location. These assignments will be made through the Falls Creek office daily. These activities will be directed and led by the Recreation Staff. The games will last approximately 45 minutes to an hour. The purpose of these games is to provide a non-competitive, compliment-giving, compliment-getting, fun-filled group time.
