The focus of this activity was on helping campers to achieve some level of comfort and trust with each other and their coaches. The most enthusiastic participants in this activity as well as in all other activities were: Isaiah Grant and Ezra Landa. Since we had so many older kids willing to help the coaches we also gave 2 Helping Hand Awards to Brian Hong and Steisy Garsia.
