There was a buzz all around camp today about when Olympics would break out. Campers were trying to figure out if today was the day or maybe tomorrow. The anticipation was intense and so much fun. Every announcement was looked as a clue and every move our Head Staff made was a sign but the morning went by without a break and it just added to the excitement to what was coming. You could actually feel the energy in the air but the day just went on as business as usual.
Even amidst the Olympic craze, we were able to get a ton of games in today. We played hard and we couldn’t be more proud of the effort set forth from our awesome Chenny athletes.

Well, our campers did not have to wait long as the entire camp was enjoying snack call when a very familiar song began to play throughout camp. The Olympic Fanfare sent chills up our spine and out from Chenny Central came our Head Counselors with a lit torch symbolizing Olympics is upon us. The entire camp followed them up the hill to our little league baseball field where the Olympic rings waited their arrival. We announced the Captains and highlighted what the games are all about. We will compete, we will play hard, we will show spirit and dedication, we will play fair but most importantly we will have fun in our Olympic Games! The Olympic rings were lit and the games of 2015 officially began. Our camp is now split in three equal teams, Red Cuba, Blue Fiji and Gold Egypt.
Just when we thought that camp could not possibly get any better, Olympics takes us to a whole new level. Tonight was a great night as we started our battle with Tugs of War. There has never been a Camp Chen-A-Wanda TUGS OF WAR WITH MORE SPIRIT AND INTENSITY. It was an electric night. We are so proud to be part of these games as we watch your children thrive and be the best they can be. Best news is we get to do this again tomorrow. There is no place like CAW.
