Ships Ahoy—Naut(ical) Your Typical Boat

Going with the flow was a necessity this year that created a positive ripple effect on programming. Camp Goodtimes has a 20+ year partnership with Argosy Cruises in Seattle whereby they donate a half-day cruise around the Sound—complete with a DJ, popcorn, and a French fry toss—for each of our two camp sessions. Due to our 2022 COVID protocols, we neither wanted all of our camper pods co-mingling in close quarters on a boat nor did we want to break our camp bubble. However, the DaBoata Day (as it’s known) is a huge camper favorite and forgoing it also left a large gap in our weekly schedule. What to do? Enter stage left…Cardboard Boat Races!

1. We turned frowns upside down. We knew the impact that not hosting the DaBoata cruise would mean for campers, and we proactively created an alternative activity that captured the essence of the original while adhering to our COVID protocols and was down-right fun.
2. The mission wasn’t watered down. Our camp’s mission of providing hope, love, and joy played out in spades by giving campers a new goofy, creative activity to partake in.
