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.
What an incredible 6th week of the summer! It started with a drive-in movie, and then included Hollowpallooza, Carnival, the Inter/Junior Play, Plaque and Skit Night, a fire breathing dragon eating a car, and, of course, the start of Color War! Take a look at all of the fun we had this week!
This is a community that creates quite a bit of camp spirit. Not surprisingly, we tend to see even more than normal during our annual Color War special events. And while there's a lot to write about today in terms of how I saw our kids and counselors show their camp spirit today, no one even comes close to the two people in the picture below standing with Scott and me.
You may have noticed that there was no blog yesterday. Sadly, as Color War broke out for each of our brother-sister summer camps I was starting to not feel very well. I ended up needing to recoup for a while. Thankfully, I'm back and on my way to 100%. I also have two videos to post today. I hope that you enjoy them both!
Yesterday evening our boys' camp began their annual Color War tournament with a special event called a breakout. Just after the sun began to rise over our beautiful lake a plane flew over the Evergreen campus, and all sorts of craziness began. Take a look at this video I shot of the 2015 Green and Gold Color War breakout!
