Students took part in activities in preparation for the presentation of "Surfin' the High Seas" on Friday at 2:30 p.m.

"At the end of the week, they are going to put on a 30-minute little show, and they are going to learn eight different songs and dances," camp coordinator Susie Kolterman said. "They will have a chance to get up onstage and get that confidence building that goes on with drama."

But for at least for one hot afternoon, the campers took a break and enjoyed running through sprinklers and splashing each other as they competed in wet and wild games and ran around an obstacle course.
