Today was the last full day for the one-week and two-week villagers. The schedule was a little different, as we celebrated the time we spent here at Waldsee. After our second Gesprächsgruppestunde (language learning hour), everyone headed to the Fußballplatz (soccer field) for the Betreuer gegen Kinder Fußballspiel (counselor vs. camper soccer game).  This year, the villagers won! We then got ready for the rest of the night....

During yesterday's storm, our one-week campers and day campers learned a song about the rain. Luckily, it's a beautiful day today so we could have our Gesang outside with our Gesangsleiter, Freja!
