Carnival

This year the Camp Ranger carnival took place on Sunday July 31. Its purpose was to raise money for the United Jewish Appeal.

After lunch the boys paraded onto girls campus and were joined by the costumed girls. The parade moved on to boys campus which had been transformed onto the carnival grounds. Penny Pitching, Walk a Crooked Mile, Ranger Raceway, and Dunk the Counselor were some of the booths created and run by the boys' bunks. Unidentified clowns caught counselors off their guard and coated them with whipped cream.

As an extra added attraction some of the boys put on a trampoline exhibition. The demonstrations ranged from the easiest and most basic stunts to the more complicated and advanced skills such as a back-flip, front-flip, and combinations of skills.

Frankfurters, punch, and prizes were given out to complete a wonderful and worthwhile day. With the aid of our directors' contributions, our goal of donating $500 to the U.J.A. was satisfactorily fulfilled.

Gold Rush

If someone shouted "there's gold in them there hills" four weeks ago no one would have believed it. But one Sunday a traveler came to Ranger to announce that there was gold on our land. Then the searching began. Lucky prospectors escaped the bandits and brought their gold to the assayer's office, receiving cash in exchange. That evening the whole camp assembled at the two gambling casinos to bet hard-earned money. But, as with all gambling, some must win and some must lose, and all must end. Another perfect day spent with an exciting activity at Camp Ranger!
