Welcome to day three! We start off the day with some fun activities, including lock picking, escaping from being tied up, and playing in a escape room.

After breakfast we all met up on the wooden benches outside of the conference center to discuss yesterdays accomplishments and todays goals. We then went up the hill to the build site to get down to business.

Turns out the collaborators also enjoy bubbles (and pull ups)!

After dinner, the evening activity was knife training! All of the campers went with Kaitlyn to learn and master their knife knowledge. The five rules are:

1. Blood bubble
2. Always cut away from yourself
3. Three points of contact.
4. Keep your knife locked
5. Keep your knife sharp

All campers earned a knife by demonstrating that they know the five rules and how to be safe with a knife.

When all of the campers had gotten their knives, we then celebrated Charlie's 13th birthday! We had ice cream sandwiches and wished that he had a wonderful birthday!

We go to bed full of ice cream sandwiches, laughs, and excitement about tomorrows beach day!
