Olympics 2015! The 411!

It’s blog time again, and so much has happened since you last tuned in!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you know that OLYMPICS BROKE OUT on Saturday night! This year our theme is “GLOBAL GAMES” and represents games around the world!

Teams are:

Tour de France- YELLOW FRANCE, America’s Cup- RED USA, Highland Games- BLUE SCOTTLAND, Winter Olympics- GREEN SOUTH KOREA

How did it happen? Well, that was the crazy part. Ordinarily, Olympics breaks out either first thing in the morning, after evening program, or sometime between those hours. Not this year! It was really a surprise, the best kept secret in years! Juniors were at the lake and seniors were at the pool when horns blew, sirens went off, and 4 cyclists in Olympic colors biked by. EVERYONE thought it was a fake out. After all, Olympics can’t break during general swim…Until it does! Head staff members with ropes (waited until everyone had come in from the lake and the pool and then) slowly led senior camp down the hill and junior camp up the hill until the whole camp met in the center road. It was amazing to watch the juniors see the seniors and the seniors see the juniors and realize that this might just be the real deal! Together, as one, the entire camp walked down the winding road to the white house on the edge of route 6 (where some of our specialist counselors live). Along the winding road they were met with characters acting out different athletic events, including a sail boat floating along in Mitchell’s Creek! When the entire camp got to the white house, they saw that the whole side of the house had been made to look like a mountain range, and “snow” was falling from the top of the house. Our key staff then performed HILARIOUS skits to introduce each team. Captains were read, teams were assigned, and the rest is history!

Tonight we end Olympics with our closing ceremony of each team’s song, cheer, and banner presentation, but we thought you might like to know what we’ve been up to!
