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.
The end of Green and Gold, and Kenwood's Rope Burning special event
Tonight was the end of Green and Gold, the color war for our girls' camp. After one final day of sports our two teams spent the evening practicing the four songs that they would sing at tonight's final event called Song and Cheer. I was fortunate to have some time to watch both teams in their final practices. They both sounded confident and excited for tonight's big event. Take a look!
Rope Burning is an amazing special event at our summer camp
Today was Truce Day for Camp Kenwood's Color War. Our boys took a day off from this week's special event. Evergreen continued with day #3 of their Color War. Tonight was one of the favorite events of the entire summer: Rope Burning. While our younger campers watched and cheered our 15-year old Juniper girls took part in a race to see which team could build a fire tall and strong enough to burn a rope suspended 10 ft in the air. I shot and edited a video of tonight's event (actually, I used 5 different cameras so that I could get the proper angles for you to truly understand how awesome this amazing special event is). I hope that you enjoy it!
Amazing Special Events For Both Kenwood and Evergreen
Today was another very busy day at our summer camp in NH. Just after breakfast Kenwood began its first day of Color War. All morning and afternoon campers were participating in all of the team and individual sports we have worked on over the last 5+ weeks of the summer. During this first day of Color War our boys played games of hockey, basketball, ultimate frisbee, tennis, archery and speedball. Tonight, after dinner, the teams squared off in the hollow for the annual first night activity of this special event: Capture the Flag.
