Learning to have fun activities during Covid-19 has been a challenge we have all faced, but it hasn’t stopped Infinity Pledge from getting together for some virtual fun and fellowship, and sharing our activities with new friends from around the state! Whether coloring, making pinwheel crafts, or playing the 5-Second Rule, Infinity Pledge has enjoyed our virtual fellowship and learned that limitations can be overcome with creativity and perseverance.
One of our most successful events was a virtual campout we had in early August. The Pledge girls gathered their supplies and were ready for an adventure when the “Zoom© Campground” opened Friday afternoon. Their first challenge was to build a shelter, and the girls used their creativity to transform their living room into a themed campground! One of the Pledge Girls, Anna, made her shelter using a beach theme, including a tropical background and everything you need for camping at the beach! Two other Pledge Girls, Belle and Chloe, had an enchanted forest theme, with dragons guarding the outside of their tents, and enchanted rooms with magical crowns inside the tent. All of the girls went above and beyond expectations with this challenge! Additional activities at the campout included Getting to Know You Games, Reflections around the Virtual Campfire, Making S’mores, a virtual tour of a National Park, and Glow in the Dark BINGO©. After some good night selfies, everyone logged off and drifted off to sleep. In the morning, the girls did a Bed Head Walk and Scavenger Hunt, and had a morning devotional. The campout ended with a slide show featuring food photos, good-night selfies, and photos from the scavenger hunt. Infinity Pledge is definitely going to have another virtual campout, and the girls hope even more friends will join them! After all, what could be better than going camping with some sweet friends in Pledge?
