Camp Games

You can call me Muzik. . . . .

and you can call us Twinkle…..Sprinkle……and Krinkle

Muzik snuck downstairs by himself to talk to Grandma Rose. He had something important to talk to her about.

“Good morning, Grandma Rose,” he began, “how are you doing today?”

Grandma Rose replies back, “Why just fine, Muzik, how are you this bright and sunny morning? And, by the way, where are the other three little ghosts? You guys usually are always hanging out together.”

Muzik continues, “Upstairs, in the attic. Grandma Rose, when we were at school the other day we heard a lot of the other children talking about how they go to camp. It sure sounded like a lot of fun. Can we all go to camp too?”

“Oh, Muzik, I think that is a wonderful idea! I just hate to see you guys stay up in the attic all the time. Let me check around town and find out where the children’s camps are held.”

Muzik was so excited that Grandma Rose thought it was such a good idea. He ran quick back up the stairs to the attic to tell everyone that Grandma Rose was checking out the camps in town for them to go to.

So Muzik, Twinkle, Sprinkle and Krinkle waited patiently to hear back from Grandma Rose. When they didn’t hear back right away they sent Muzik back downstairs to remind Grandma Rose to check out the camps.

Muzik obediently went back downstairs to find Grandma Rose to make sure she didn’t forget to check on the camp. Grandma Rose was talking with Grandpa Ray in the kitchen. Muzik waited until Grandpa Ray left the room and then he asked Grandma Rose if she was able to find out any information about the camps in town.

Grandma Rose told Muzik that she signed everyone up for a camp that was starting tomorrow down at the park, which was just a few blocks away!

Muzik could not believe it, they were going to start camp as soon as tomorrow! He thanked Grandma Rose for setting it up and asked if he could be the one to tell Twinkle, Sprinkle and Krinkle.

“Of course, Muzik, it was your idea! All I did was make a few phone calls and get you guys signed up. You can walk down to the park tomorrow and have a wonderful fun day at the camp.”

Muzik ran back up the stairs to let everyone know they would be going to camp tomorrow.

They were all so excited they could hardly sleep that night. When morning came Muzik woke everyone up and told them to hurry and get dressed for camp.

After breakfast Grandma Rose walked down to the park with them for camp. “Now remember, no one can see you, so please be careful. You can still play and participate in all the camp activates. It doesn’t matter if no one can see you, just take part and have fun! I’ll be back later this afternoon to walk you back home.”

When Muzik, Twinkle, Sprinkle and Krinkle got there all the kids were sitting in a circle around the Camp Counselor. She welcomed everyone to her camp, and told them the first thing she was going to do was pass out Summer Camp Journals and Summer Camp Autograph Memory books for everyone.

The Camp Counselor told them to keep their journals at home so they could write about their activities and their feelings for the day when they got home. But they should keep the Autograph books there at the camp. She would allow some time during the lunch break for the campers to write in each other’s Autograph book. They should keep both books as wonderful mementos of their time there at the camp.

The Camp Counselor shared her plans for the day’s activities with the campers, “For today I’ve planned several games to play. We will all give it our best try at Ring Toss, learn to dance with a Limbo game, and test our skill with a Pop N Catch game.”

Muzik, Twinkle, Sprinkle and Krinkle were so excited to know they would be playing games with the kids.

The Camp Counselor first brought out the Ring Toss game. After all the kids took a turn, Muzik grabbed all the rings for himself to play. He first put all of the rings around his neck. He slipped one off his neck with his paw, then put it in his mouth to throw it. He swung his neck back as far as he could, then swung his neck swiftly to the front to aim at the Ring Toss poles. He opened his mouth to let the ring go. The first ring landed on one of the poles!

Krinkle was there to cheer him on, “Good going, Muzik, now let’s see if you get all of the rings on the poles!” Muzik threw the rest of the rings and every one of them landed on a pole! Muzik was so proud of himself that he got all the rings on the poles. And he had fun doing it too!

Twinkle and Sprinkle were more interested in watching the Limbo game that started. They watched the kids carefully so that they would learn how to dance the Limbo. They both knew that they were good dancers, so they were sure they could dance with their backs bent backwards to get themselves under the bar while still dancing.

After all the kids had taken their turn, Twinkle turned on her own colorful lights and began dancing under the bar. Since the Camp Counselor couldn’t see Twinkle, she turned off the music. The Camp Counselor had thought that all the kids were finished dancing to the Limbo music.

Muzik saw what happened and came running over to the Limbo game to play his music for Twinkle to dance to.

Krinkle sang the words to the song while Muzik continued to play the melody.

Every limbo boy and girl
All around the limbo world
Gonna do the limbo rock
All around the limbo clock
Jack be limbo, Jack be quick
Jack go unda limbo stick
All around the limbo clock
Hey, let’s do the limbo rock

Limbo lower now
Limbo lower now

How low can you go

First you spread your limbo feet
Then you move to limbo beat
Limbo ankolimboneee,
Bend back like a limbo tree
Jack be limbo, Jack be quick
Jack go unda limbo stick
All around the limbo clock
Hey, let’s do the limbo rock

la la la

Get yourself a limbo girl
Give that chic a limbo whirl
There’s a limbo moon above
You will fall in limbo love
Jack be limbo, Jack be quick
Jack go unda limbo stick
All around the limbo clock
Hey, let’s do the limbo rock

Limbo lower now
Limbo lower now

How low can you go

Don’t move that limbo bar
You’ll be a limbo star
How low can you go

Sprinkle started dancing too, sprinkling her special gold star dust around as she danced under the bar. Krinkle tried to go under the bar while he was singing, but he hit his head. “That counts, Krinkle,” Twinkle said. “You lose if your body touches the bar!”

“Who cares,” Krinkle shouts back above the sound of the the music, “It doesn’t matter if you win or lose. It’s all about just playing the game and having fun. And I’m having fun. How about you guys, are you having fun here?”


Krinkle looked over at the other side of the park and saw that the Camp Counselor had started up the Pop N Catch game with all the kids.

“Oh, that looks like something I’ll be good at,” Krinkle said. Let’s go over and see how the kids are doing.”

So Muzik, Twinkle, Sprinkle and Krinkle went over to the other side of the park to get in on the Pop N Catch game. Muzik found extra catchers and balls in a box sitting next to the Camp Counselor’s chair. He helped himself to four catchers and several balls.

“Watch how the kids are playing this game so we know what to do,” Krinkle said.

After they all got the hang of it, they grabbed the catchers and balls and started playing. Krinkle was right, he was good at it. He didn’t miss a ball. Muzik was pretty good at it too. He missed a couple of the balls and had a little trouble sending the balls back. The girls, on the other hand, needed a little more practice.

Before they knew it, the day was over. They picked up their Summer Camp Journals and waited for Grandma Rose to come get them. They couldn’t wait to tell Grandma Rose about the fun day they had at camp that day. And they were especially excited about being able to write down all of their fun activities in their Summer Camp Journals when they got back home. Their camp memories would last forever!
