During this year, our motto was "the bigger, the better."
Monday: Spotsylvania County Volunteer Fire Department brought an ambulance and latter truck.
Tuesday: A U.S. Customs and Border Control helicopter flew in and landed on camp grounds! Children were able to watch it's arrival and departure, learn about the pilot's job, ask questions, and climb into the helicopter.
Wednesday: BUCKSHOT, a10,000lbs H2 Hummer Monster Truck, drove up to camp and got campers revved up! Campers watched a demonstration of the truck driving, talked to the driver, and climbed into the truck. In addition, a police SUV from Alexandria Police Department came to talk to campers about the profession and demonstrate the rumble siren which alerts motorists to the police car by vibration, instead of sound.
Thursday: After hours, campers went to Sky Zone and bounced their hearts out.
Friday: Campers and community members worked together to break a world record of chalk murals.
