On Monday our Evergreen Color War known as Green and Gold came to an end, and last night it was the same for Kenwood's Maroon and Grey. It was a pretty special Color War, both in terms of how well our campers played, and how kind our boys were with one another both on and off the field.
Yesterday was our final day of our girls' Color War, known as Green and Gold. Over 4 days of playing their hardest in everything we do here -- basketball, tennis, archery, softball, soccer, swimming, hockey, track and field, spelling bee, debate -- both teams had really created an event to remember. Going into Song and Cheer, the scores were close. Very close.
Yesterday was our third day of Color War, and there was a lot going on. Evergreen began the morning with its Track Meet, and Kenwood had its Swim Meet. In the afternoon Evergreen had its Swim Meet and Kenwood played hockey, baseball, soccer, ultimate, basketball and tennis, and also had its Apache Relay. Tonight both teams had Rope Burning and Evergreen also had its Apache. You can see highlights from all of these exciting events in our Holly Gaudet's Color War Day #3 video!
If you liked last night's video wrap up of the first day of Color War I think you'll really like what we have for you today. Our resident film maker/teacher Holly Gaudet has made another terrific highlight reel from our Maroon and Grey/Green and Gold activities!
After last night's amazing Color War break out this morning our campers were up and ready to play their hearts out in activities. Here's a quick video recap of the day's highlights:
As a summer camp we really like pushing the envelope with our special events, especially when it comes to Color War breakouts. We're always on the lookout for new and creative ways to start our annual end-of-summer sports tournament. Phyllis has been planning this year's break out for almost 2 years now and it did not disappoint. In fact, I think tonight rivaled the craziness and excitement of last year's Megasaurus breakout.
It's a lovely start to the New Year which means that Camp starts in only 173 days! The entire Camp Leadership Team cannot wait for June.
We woke up this morning with Evergreen, our girls camp, having completed their Color War, and Kenwood in the final day of its tournament. Our girls woke up late and came to breakfast at a leisurely pace in their pajamas.
We are now in day #2 of our Summer 2016 Color War. In both Kenwood and Evergreen our campers have been playing their hardest, and nowhere has this been more evident than in our games of Capture the Flag.
