Instead of doing a scavenger hunt, campers broke into small groups to discuss their favorite parts of the day
Counselors improvise after event cancellation
A thunderstorm threat canceled a scavenger hunt planned for Thursday night on the North Oval.
Camp Crimson participants had to run from Catlett Music Center to Walker Tower in order to avoid getting caught in the rain.
The scavenger hunt was designed to help the new students get acquainted with OU's campus. The hunt would have taken the campers to different buildings around campus.
Instead of participating in the scavenger hunt, the campers went back to their dorms. They split up into their small groups and met in their groups' meeting rooms. There are two small groups for each floor.
Zac Stevens, camp director, said there are 24 small groups total. Stevens said due to the storm, the small group session was intended to give the campers something to do until the next event.
"We're filling time until we can go over to the Huff," Stevens said.
Night at the Huffman was the next scheduled event and is a chance for new students to acquaint themselves with Huston Huffman Center and spend time with friends.
Justin Billie, incoming freshman, was not disappointed about missing the scavenger hunt.
"I like my small group pretty much," Billie said.
Shannon Miller, camp counselor, said the impromptu small group session was just kind of a hang out time to settle down.
"We ask how their day went and what their favorite part was," Miller said.
"(I'm) having a blast," Kirbey Goodnight, incoming freshman, said. "I meet so many new people."
Goodnight came by herself, not knowing anyone here, but said now she is leaving with new friends.
Goodnight said she is going to study meteorology and is excited about moving into the dorms in a few weeks.
