The annual Camp Cardinal was held today for the nearly 300 students at Glendaal with a Fuel Up to Play 60 theme.
Students participated in a variety of athletic and team-building activities, such as the Tarp Ball Relay, in which students had to roll six beach balls between tarps held on two sides by rows of students. The goal was to get the across the field without dropping any beach balls.
There were also sponge relays, in which students on teams had to fill buckets with water squeezed from sponges, and another activity in which students had to use small cups to fill a two-liter soda bottle being held on a second student's head.
There was even an enormous, inflatable Bessie the Cow and large chocolate milk bottle on loan from the National Dairy Council that was used in the "Milk Zone" obstacle course. Students also wore white tape on their upper lips for pictures in front of Bessie to simulate a 'milk moustache.'
There was a taste testing station in the dining hall in which students tried several types of foods that they, perhaps, had not tried in the past.
The day culminated with freeze pops and teachers Trish Roeser and Gina Brown handing out a bag of sports equipment for each classroom provided through the Fuel Up program.
