With Visiting Day behind us, Island Lake is all about Color War for these next 3 days. Heroes vs. Villains 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 the grey Villains (by 2 points!).
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.
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 the game Unique. It’s a trivia game in the theater and it’s done group by group The kids come up to the stage and stand before podiums with lights. When a camper knows the answer to a trivia question, whether it be related to the CW teams or camp, they flip a light switch and then answer.
Because of the risk of rain this evening, we’re holding off on Rope Burn until tomorrow night. In its place we’ll have a Five period Basketball tournament which will be played in the gym, group by group. Before basketball, the team in the lead by 123 points,….the blue Heroes!
