COLOR GAMES 2019!
What a way to start off our second two week session – Kim Possible Color Games 2019! After last night’s exciting break, today started with cheers, spirit and colorful outfits.
Today, the rain did not hold us back. We played a camp favorite – Human Anagrams. Name that Tune was a blast! In the gym, we played Capture the Flag, obstacle courses, tug-of-war and so much more!
In the Dining Hall, campers created Kim’s escape boat out of cardboard and packing tape, complete with team flags! The goal was to get the boats to float in a tub of water, but wait….not so easy. Rocks were placed in their boats and then the fun really began when the activity leader yelled SABOTAGE! Teams had 20 seconds to spoon water onto their competitors’ boats using a tablespoon to try to get them to sink.
At the pool, we had lots of fun relays. One of the cutest was Driving School where campers guided a raft/car with a driver in it. They went through a course, which included a traffic circle, stop sign, and the dreaded parallel parking. Then the car stopped at the tortilla stand where they got a bowl of tortillas. The challenge was to drive the raft back without getting the tortilla chips wet. Another fun event was the kickboard race, the contestants raced to “school” where the teacher would then ask a question – such as What year did the War of 1812 happen? Hmmm….
And of course, what’s Color Games without Counselor Hunt and Bucket Brigade? But my all-time favorite is Closing Ceremonies where teams get to proudly present their banners, skits and songs. Final pep points were collected and tallied.
We applauded everyone’s spirit and good sportsmanship and then we announced this year’s Color Games winner….
THE GREEN TEAM!
After such a fun, busy day, we will all sleep well tonight!
