We have had an amazing week out at Dudley Camp!
Monday we had the Portland Trail Blazers’ strength and conditioning coach, Bobby Medina, join us for a morning of conditioning. In the evening we we’re privileged to the first ever CDBC “Fashion Show”. We had a great time laughing at the crazy costumes that our counselors put together, including but not limited to the infamous cow presented by our very own Ben Rue.
Tuesday we got the chance to meet to Keith Houlemard, president of Nike’s Jordan brand, who has type one diabetes. We loved getting to hear his story and inspiring words and the campers loved getting to ask him about his favorite shoes! We also got to spend some time with Coach Herb Brown who shared his knowledge of basketball with the campers and staff. We started out the afternoon with our annual CDBC volleyball tournament and the ever thrilling slip-and-slide.
Today, Wednesday, we celebrated Canada day with Coach Street, including the Canada Run, Canadian national anthem, and so many Canadian outfits! We had a beautiful day and were able to enjoy the slip-and-slide, volleyball tournament, and, of course, plenty of basketball games. Tonight, we had a great time at our annual talent show. Acts included our own version of Pokerface by Ben Rue and Hayden Gehr, an arm wrestling contest, some amazing piano skills, and crazy skits from our counselors and coaches!
We’re looking forward to another amazing day tomorrow and are sad that this week has gone by so quickly!
