Traditionally the day after Color War is the day of rest. Everyone is very tired after a long 4 days of competition, and nothing sounds better than a lazy day. Campers enjoy just hanging out with friends and soaking up every last minute of camp. But today, our lazy day started with the two Color War plays, and they were amazing!
Our theme this Color War was Pirates: Transformation on the Seven Seas. The White Knight play told the story of a young boy and his journey to becoming a pirate. The Red Devil play told the story of a good pirate who was mean but changed her ways to become a good person, which made her a not so good pirate.
After the final programs this morning, the Green Giants announced the winner of Color War 2018 - The Red Devils. This was an emotional moment for everyone. There were tears from both teams - tears of joy, tears of disappointment and tears of relief. Everyone was happy that we are finally back to the regular routine of camp.
After lunch, we enjoyed an extra long rest hour and some much needed sleep. After rest hour, our senior campers enjoyed an afternoon of fun at the bowling alley. Our intermediate and junior campers enjoyed a movie in the gym and a surprise visit from the Dolly’s Trolley - the best ice cream in the entire world!
Tonight we had our very last square dance of the summer. When Bryan announced it as the last at dinner, my heart sunk. I knew it was coming, but it just came too fast. The summer is almost over, and I cannot believe how quickly it has passed. I am so grateful for the opportunity to spend the summer with your children. They have filled my days with laughter, hugs, joy and so much love.
