YMCA Campers Chill Out

Friday, August 3, 2012

There's nothing quite as refreshing as a snowball fight in July. Pictured above, these YMCA Challengers Day Camp members beat the summer heat at Monett's South Park by forming teams and engaging in a "snowball" fight, using loosely packed shaved ice. Challengers Day Camp participants also had the opportunity to take part in a frozen T-shirt relay before spending the remainder of the afternoon swimming at the municipal pool. At right: Challengers Day Camp staffer Derek Shields gives Bailey Flynt a helping hand over some rough ground as she and other campers navigated the sledding hill on blocks of ice. Ice block riding isn't as easy as it sounds. A rock, tree root or hole in the ground can throw a rider to the ground, leaving the ice block to slide away unattended. Below, right, Dash Ballay is pictured taking a tumble from his ice block. [Times Photo by Melonie Roberts]
