How does your camp deal with crazy weather?

It’s a beautiful day here in Alberta, and we’re pretty stoked. The past few weeks have been a mixture of gentle morning rain, afternoon torrential downpours, evening mists and midnight thunderstorms. Yeesh. When the sun comes out, we all run outside — only to be driven back inside by the crazy, record-high swarms of mosquitos. ¬†Pretty brutal, Alberta… even for you.

But that’s okay! Camp goes on! During times of inclement weather (be it incessant rain or scorching sun), camp staff have to get creative with activities that will keep the kids comfortable, happy and having fun!

What are some of your favourite weather-busting games? Do you have any fun rainy-day activities, or any suggestions for activities kids can play to beat the heat?
