Flopping Fun at ACA Mid States

Last week, we traveled to Chicago to participate in the American Camp Association's Mid States Conference for the first time. They invited us to do a short energizer to give attendees a boost after lunch and before the keynote speaker.

As soon as Paul introduced the Flop Ball, the energy shifted. Once on their feet, they tossed and flipped with big smiles on their faces. Many naturally tried passing with someone nearby. Informal connections and renewed focus for the rest of the day - objectives achieved!

Knowing that camp professionals can be competitive, we wrapped up the experience with a quick competition. In this image, the woman celebrating is one of the few people left standing and still in the running. I love the expressions of the people at the tables near her. Even though they had already been eliminated, they still couldn't help but be excited for the success of their peers.
