First Day of Color War Rocked
After the breakout, the campers were split into teams and were given their Color War shirts. It was off to team meetings and then right into Tugs of War. The battle began and all you could feel here is our camp spirit. Faces are painted, hair is sprayed red or gold and our kids are feelin’ that color war pride from head to toe. This is the best part of camp. Color War encompasses every important part of this incredible journey. Teamwork, sportsmanship, competition, camaraderie are just a few of the values that play a part of Color War. All throughout camp, you can hear the counselors chant and cheer in support of their teams. No matter if they win or loose, the campers are congratulated for their valiant effort. Fellow campers are cheering on the efforts of their teammates, win or loose. It’s contagious.
Tonight was Mass Games and Contest Night and it was so much fun. We played BBG and softball at twilight. You couldn’t have asked for better weather. A picture perfect evening. Then our Juniors, Middies and Inters were in the Rec Hall having their own wacky races. They got into intense potato sack races, sitting on and popping the balloons and crawling through the tunnel. Music was bumpin’ and all the kids were dancing along as they got into the races. Collegiates, Seniors, Supers, GC’s and CIT’s had their own races on the Rec Hall Court. Upper camp competed on Hippidy Hops, Pogo Balls, Flying Turtles and Volleyball Hops. It was great night.
First day of Color War 2010 was a huge success. Our first time campers embraced color war with excitement and energy and our our veteran campers brought experience and enthusiasm to the games. Our counselors injected spirit into the games and lead the way for what is looking to be one the most memorable Color Wars in Chen-A-Wanda history. A fantastic start to a great week of games. I am proud to call Chen-A-Wanda my summer home.
