We've had a record number of campers this summer - including a PACKED 4th Session. We boasted a record number of 2 week Homestead Campers (over 60), EIGHT full Pioneer Units and a two super groups of Pathfinders - (18 and 15 campers). Below are the Unit Photos for anyone who may have misplaced theirs or simply just wanted to see the other groups.
All of camp is split into four teams - that begin to meet Friday to plan out their team cheer, song, costumes, flag, banner and Presentation as well as who will compete in each event. Presentations are made to all of Camp after Eucharist Sunday morning. Three rounds of events play out in the afternoon and the day culminates with an enormous Relay Race all over camp - where every team member plays a part. They pass a set of matches from the beginning to the end of the race and are done when their team builds a fire and burns through their rope. It's pretty exciting. This year was particularly "breathtaking" as Team Wind came back from 4th place to win the relay - but ultimately, Water won the War.
Below are some photos of the teams, the banners, flags and fire builders - a coveted position to hold in the relay race.
