Tonight was the 6th Anything Can Happen Thursday of the summer, and BOY did we have a lot planned. Our campers walked into the dining hall wondering if Kenwood or Evergreen's color war would be breaking out tonight. In the end both did, but not at the same time, and in very different ways.
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.
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!
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!
Tonight, we began another amazing special event at our summer camp in NH. After dinner and free play our Evergreen girls went to the theater tent for their annual Plaque and Skit night. In Kenwood, our boys took part in a new event called "Yacht or Not" in the Hollow. Take a look at this video below to see how it began, and then how it suddenly became a fantastic, crazy, high-energy start of our boys' Color War that we call Maroon and Grey. This was one Color War Breakout you do not want to miss!
Two long-time, beloved counselors, Josh and Alexander, will be the head coaches for Camp Kenwood's Maroon and Grey teams this Color War. We wish them, and both of their teams, an amazing and fun color war filled with great moments and lots of camp spirit. More on our boys' camp's Color War tomorrow, along with an announcement when our girls' camp starts its own special event!
