Boy did we put on a show tonight as our Circus show took our breath away.We had tumblers and acrobats, adagios and lyra performances. There were single trapezes and spanish webs and our kids dazzled us with their abilities on the triple trapeze. To watch our kids create a performance that defies gravity and takes total 100% concentration and are able to execute with such ease and grace is a testament to our Circus Directors and specialists. Michael and Rodrigo along with their team of Olivia, Annie, Mikaela and Lianna produced a show that was spectacular. From start to finish our minds were blown as we watched our kids dazzle and razzle us. To watch our kids pour their heart and soul into this program and show us all what dedication looks like is truly what its all about. There is nothing we can’t do when we apply ourselves and try until we get it. So many kids may look at that huge trapeze and see it’s enormity as something they can’t do but this summer, our campers saw what they can do and we could not be more proud of each one of them. The soared tonight and literally flew to new heights. They worked so hard and it showed. The show was phenomenal, funny, entertaining, electric and just plain awesome.

There isn’t one person on this campus that thought tonight was the night. We LOVE surprises and tonight was the night. Color War 2016 break was insane and nobody anticipated it happening this soon. As everyone made their way down the hill from the most amazing circus show we just put on, it was line-up for canteen. Just as the freshman were making their way to the canteen, Shields Hall erupted with DC Marvel/Batman music and all the kids ran into the Hall to find Batman and Captain America standing there with the huge white screen behind them. The place was going nuts, the chants were filling every space inside the Hall and then, it happened… A letter came across the screen..while a very eloquent english voice read the following message:

t’was the night before color war when all through the house

not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse

The freshman were sleeping, with all their beds made

while the CIT’s were planning their 17th raid

When on top of Shields Hall, there arose such a clatter

That the GC’s awoke to see what was the matter

They looked to their left, then they looked to their right

and discovered that Color War was breaking TONIGHT!!


 And with that the entire camp picked and ran to The Lodge  – It was lit up like a Christmas Tree, actually we literally have a 25 foot Christmas tree decorated from top to bottom in the entrance. The smell of pine filled the lodge and it was breathtaking. Twinkling  lights where everywhere and it made this night so festive. The Lodge has never looked his beautiful. At the other end of the Lodge were Tiki Huts, Paddle boards, sand, kayaks and loads of oversized beach balls. The kids ran in to see Santa and Mrs. Claus handing out candy canes while holiday music was creating the mood. After we rocked out to Surfin’ USA, the entire lodge danced to Hanukkah O’ Hanukkah and were ready for latkas and apple sauce. The fun and giant surprise that nobody expected made this night spectacular. After we announced the Lieutenants and Captains, handed out the T-shirts and went over tomorrows schedules, Holiday Cookies and Capri Sun drinks were handed out to all campers as they left the Lodge with huge smiles on their faces. Oh what a night we had.. and now for the most awesome next 5 days. 1..2..3..4.. Chenny has a Color War!

Chenny out.
