Friday Aug 19 was an exciting day for a lot of LSI students, teachers and staff members. All of us from four different campuses arrived in Huntington Beach at around and started setting up tents.
Students grabbed some delicious breakfast snacks and went over to watch the Volleyball Tournament that was about to start. All the schools played really well and were supported by cheers from their perspective campuses.
The winner of the tournament this year was the Downtown LA campus. The fun continued as we moved to other fun games.
The Tug-of-War was so much fun. Even teachers and staff participated in it. All the different campuses took part in the exhilarating water games and won a lot of gift certificates as prizes!
Everyone was in such a cheerful and happy mood. Students made new friends and posed for selfies with them.
We all felt like one big family. We had worked up an appetite with all those games and were ready to grab lunch, which was wonderful. There were sandwiches, wraps, chips, and watermelon.
We took a few moments after lunch to connect with our friends and swim in the ocean. The water was cold but we got used to it quickly.
After that we got ready for the disgusting food eating contest. It was crazy to watch the contestant eat food like spicy peppers, bitter gourd, lemon and other unexpected things.
After that, things started to wind down and we started getting ready to leave. We said goodbye to everyone and were filled with gratitude and happiness for such an amazing sun kissed day.
Needless to say, the weather was simply divine throughout the whole day. We love California and can't wait for the LSI 2017 Beach Party!!!
