Living the Dream…the last two weeks. As the candle boats float from the beach to the edge of the “H” dock, on this last night of camp, it’s incredible to think back on the summer that has past. Each week of the summer represents a milestone and these past two weeks are no different. There is an aura in the air of excitement and curiosity of what the end of summer will bring.
Week 6 began with an exciting night of Sports-a-Rama followed by some of the all-time camp favorite evening activities. Tuesday night was the Kentucky Derby! Just kidding… it was Watitoh Downs! We turn the Social Hall into the races and campers pretend to be horses in an exciting night of odds and winners. Wednesday was the ever-popular and most exciting Watitoh Gardens. Our incredible Camper Waiters played an intense and close game against our Staff Team. The waiters put up a good fight and many of us thought they had the win, but history repeats itself and the Staff Team took the game 34-29. Next year, waiters! Thursday was our final Sports-a-Rama competition, Name that Tune!
All week long the cheers in the Dining Hall were getting louder and louder. From all corners of the building we could hear, “1-2-3-4, we want Color War!” We responded with “I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream!” And, low and behold, after an outdoor BBQ, an ice cream truck came rolling down the oval with balloons flying out the window. Our amazing camper generals: Sydney, Jack, Sophie, and Josh led their teams in an incredible Color War, filled with competition, great sportsmanship, camaraderie and undeniable fun! We are very proud of both the Tan and Green for their efforts and enjoyed watching all of the campers on and off the field. From the swim meet to the Sing, from the Apache to the score updates, Green Charybdis and Tan Tartarus will not be forgotten. A special shout out to Arts Director, Mike, for his amazing Color War banners.
