Camp Update #1

Made it to camp at 6:40pm safe and sound.  Kids are having a great time with all of their friends.  Here are some of the comments so far:

“this is way better than my mom said it would be”

“do we have to go back on Wednesday?”

“camp is as fun as KidzWorld is at NewSpring”

“I can’t wait to go on the Zipline tomorrow”

Bed time…continue to pray for us.  Tomorrow the topic is “who am I”

Where in the World is Cosmo–CLUE 1

Where in the world is Cosmo?

During the month of June, Route 252 is sponsoring a Cosmo medallion search. This is designed to be a fun family adventure. The family who finds the medallion will win a gift certificate for a stay at the Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City. Have fun searching!

Contest Rules

  1. The Cosmo medallion is hidden somewhere in the Wichita city limits.
  2. It will be found in a place that is publicly accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  3. You will never have to stop in traffic, destroy public property or put yourself in danger to find the medallion.
  4. A new clue will be handed out in Route 252 each weekend in June. If you miss the weekend service, the new clue will be posted on lifeinakidzworld.com on Tuesday morning.
  5. If you find the medallion, take a family photo at the location. Send the photo to dan.kubish@newspring.org.

CLUE 1:
Paper and scissors is missing its first.
Don’t get tangled in a web; that would be the worst.
The medallion is located between 10 and 12.
If you find it, all is well!

Where in the world is Cosmo?

It was an awesome idea! We would hide a Cosmo medallion somewhere in the Wichita city limits and then give clues and let KidzWorld families search for it. The families could work together and have fun searching. Plus the prize would be amazing–a 2 night stay at the Great Wolf Lodge!

Well, it was such an awesome idea that when we gave the first clues out on Saturday evening several families went to work right away searching for the medallion. And guess what? By the time we finished KidzWorld that evening, we had a winner!! Our KidzWorld kids and their families are REALLY smart! Congratulations to the Runck family, the first family to figure out the clues and find the medallion. We hope they have a wonderful time at the Great Wolf Lodge.

Needless to say, we want everyone to be able to have a chance to participate in the contest. So we are going to start over again and hide another medallion and hopefully come up with a trickier location and some tougher clues and put our families back in the hunt.

Be sure you check back on my blog on Tuesday for clue #1. Then next weekend we will hand out clue #2 at KidzWorld and post it to my blog on Tuesday. For those of you who just missed finding the first medallion, get your thinking caps back on and be ready to search!
