Louise Director’s Blog – July 14, 2021
We end every day with our Goodnight Song, but last night was a bit different. As we started singing, the Sesame Street theme song came on and people in tutus and high socks ran through blowing whistles and cheering. And Sesame Street Color Games 2021 began!
Blue Cookie Monster
Green Oscar the Grouch
Yellow Big Bird
Teams started earning points right away for quiet bunks at bedtime. In the morning, team meetings were held to get everyone excited for the day! Then, we had rotations at the pool and on the fields, a big bucket brigade, and human anagrams!
In keeping with the theme, of course, some fun games included Bert and Ernie’s 3-Legged Race, Oscar’s Trash Bag Relay, Big Bird’s Tower, Capture the “Cookie” and Tug of War, and how could we not search for the rubber duckies in the pool?!
And then a staff all-time absolute favorite…silent lunch! Ah, the sounds of nothing in the Dining Hall!
The afternoon was filled with more games, including a big trivia event and another team meeting to prepare songs and cheers. And did I mention that inspection counted for points too! Bunks have never been cleaner!
After a full day of activities, we all gathered in Jill’s Place for Closing Ceremonies where teams presented skits and banners that they worked on throughout the day, along with cheers and their team song!
A really great day was had by all filled with competition, sportsmanship, teamwork and some good old-fashioned fun!
And if you were wondering, the winner was…..THE GREEN TEAM!
