Photo by Jason Kaplan Town campers were forced to spend Friday indoors due to the threat of thunderstorms. That didn’t dampen the kids’ spirits, however, as they found other things to do. They played basketball in the gymnasium, watched a movie, or worked on a puzzle. Colby Van Dam and Megan Maffei played a board game called “Name 5.”
