With Visiting Day behind us, Island Lake is all about Color War for these next 3 days.  Movies vs. Music has proven to be a great theme thus far with both teams making fantastic use of their team names.  Campers and staff are all about Color War right now and the energy is running high.

This morning we had team meetings and then sports for all of the age groups.  With lots of energy and excitement for Color War the kids played the following:  steal the bacon, dodgeball, gaga, soccer, ultimate Frisbee, softball, touch football, water basketball, hockey, volleyball, and chopped (cooking).  The winner of the sports was Blue Music.

This sunny afternoon we hosted the Swim Meet down by the swimming pool and the lake.  A variety of groups participated in the following on the lake:  canoe relay, kayak relay, standup paddle board, peddle boat relay, log rolling, freestyle relay, medley relay, kickboard relay, freestyle relay, sweat suit relay, greased watermelon, & swim to the island and back.

Here’s a list of activities that took place in the swimming pool:  penny fetch, water basketball, medley relay, kickboard relay, paddleboard relay, & freestyle relay.  The winner of the swim meet was Grey Movies.

After the swim meet ended we had a snack break at the bunks and then team meetings.  After the meetings and before dinner we then had a six period basketball game for our each group and then our staff to compete in.  The rest of the camp watched and cheered their team on to victory.  The overall winner of the basketball game was Blue Music.

Below are some photos from Color War, first when we broke it on Friday night, and the rest are from today.  For more photos, please view our daily summer photos through CampMinder.

Tonight’s evening activity is the Rope Burn for Color War.  The camp will head to the rope burn pitch down by the waterski lake.  Our campers will cheer our staff on as they build fires under highly hung ropes in attempt to see who can burn the rope in half first.  I’ll announce the winner of the rope burn in tomorrow’s blog.  Until then, ILC U THERE!
