Monsters in Waldsee!

Published: August 21, 2017

Yesterday there were monsters in Waldsee! They showed up just after brunch and we all had to flee to Skogfjorden (the Norwegian camp). Some of the villagers rode bikes there, some canoed, and others took the boat.

Once we were safe from the monsters, we played a game of Völkerball (dodgeball). We also played Sardinen (sardines) in order to explore the camp.

Once we decided that the monsters were gone and it was safe to go back to Waldsee, we did. We had Pause (break time) and then learned about the Sonnenfinsternis (eclipse) that would be happening the next day.

After Abendessen (dinner), though, the monsters were back! Everyone had to run all over Waldsee trying to find the cure to turn the monsters back into humans — all while trying to avoid them!

Finally, we found the cure and turned the monsters back. With all well in the world again, we went to bed.
