On June 27th, twenty-seven CloverBuds were loaded onto a bus for CloverBud Day Camp at Camp Clifton. They spent the day experiencing what it would be like to be a camper at 4-H camp while under the supervision of Cloverbud Camp counselors. Their day included going to flags, making crafts, setting the table for meals, dancing, swimming, campfire, and vespers. The favorite parts of the CloverBud Day camp were making ice cream and racing card board boats in the pool.
CloverBuds participated in the camp wide ice cream making party, where they created homemade ice cream in a bag. After getting all the ingredients in their own bag, the CloverBuds then placed their sealed bag into a larger one filled with ice. Then, the CloverBuds shook their bags until they created ice cream.
The CloverBuds took part in a contest with the 4-H campers while at CloverBud Day Camp too. The 4-H campers built boats out of card board, plastic, and duct tape that would be raced by the CloverBuds in the pool. The CloverBuds used their arms, legs, and sometimes paddles to move their boats across the pool to win the race. After racing the boats, they had free time to swim before it was time to eat dinner and head back home.
