Louise Director’s Blog – August 11, 2021
There is always a buzz around camp about Color Games – when will it break? Who are the captains? What is the theme?
And on Tuesday morning, the much-anticipated wait was over.
Camp was woken up by golf carts driving around camp with the captains, lieutenants, and co-captains cheering and playing music….and Super Mario Color Games has begun!
Each bunk received a mystery box on their porch to help them figure out what team they are on. Everyone excitedly changed into team colors.
Red – Mario
Pink – Princess Peach
Green – Luigi
Yellow – Princess Daisy
Yes, yes – I know. Not the normal colors…we swapped out blue for pink. Don’t worry – those blue tutus will come in handy for something else….plus there’s always next year.
Now, back to Color Games…After breakfast, teams gathered for their first spirited team meeting of the day where they learned cheers, their song and the schedule of the day.
Activities consisted of relays on the field and in the pool, trivia contests, and of course bucket brigade and tug of war. And my all-time favorite – silent lunch! Bunks earned pep points for inspection, spirit, and sportsmanship. All points matter and the count was close!
As we gathered together for Closing Ceremonies, teams presented their skits, cheers, songs and banners. And the winner was announced….
The YELLOW Team
What a SUPER, fun-filled day!
