We were sitting and chatting as we were eating our big delicious breakfast! They were pancakes filled with blueberries with syrup and different kinds of cereal! Our drinks were punch, lemonade, and milk! Our stomachs were full when breakfast was over, and we were summoned to clean up Leadership Hall for our next workshop presented by Clint Woosley. Campers were wondering what was going to happen next, as we looked at each other. Clint got up on stage and said one sentence, “Do humans connect to nature more than animals?” Campers were confused and they really did not understand why Clint had asked this. So Clint gave out more information than necessary for campers to know about how nature works in the world. Clint really wants us to know about why it is important to understand how the world works because some campers do not learn this in their schools, homes, and/or different places. At one point during his presentation, Clint mentioned about the lie detector that he tested on plants and, on the seismography, plants have showed feelings such as fear and joy.
He explained the story of how the “water” does have feelings, even though if it does not have any oxygen or cells. Because one man did an experiment on water and he wrote down two words “bad” and “good”, then he put the paper of both words on each of two cups of water and then put in a freezer overnight. Next day, he took out both of the cups of water and look down on both of them with a microscope and recognized the difference of both waters. Water that was insult by word “bad” showed that the pattern inside the water is so blurry, and water that was grateful by word “good” showed the pattern of beautiful snowflakes. So that proves that the water does have feelings and can respond to humans.
Later that afternoon, campers gathered around after dinner for the evening program. The evening program coordinators, Luba Douziech and Renca Dunn, organized this program for campers to play in! Campers were excited because Evening Program is one of their favorites! The Balloon Game was one of games campers played, it has many and many balloons and inside there are some notes, some without notes. Campers must follow the rules of this games and act out what the notes said. They had a blast! This game is similar to the musical chair game.
During the fireside, Clint has wrapped up day and night by telling his stories of his life. Campers were amazed by his words. It was short after all, but Clint was more than happy to answer all of the campers’ questions that campers wanted to know. He closed the night by doing the usual YLC Good Night tradition. Campers were tired and went to their cabins for a good night's sleep.
