Yesterday was an exciting day when the entire camp participated in the “ Greatest Warrior ” themed All Day Program. It was a fun filled day where the campers, LIT’s and staff were divided into 4 teams consisting of boxing, wrestling, WWE and sumo wrestling. Throughout the day they competed against each other in a series of fun teambuilding exercises and various games. The main highlights of the day were the team cheer-offs, a fantastic obstacle race through the forest and a final battle to see who would be crowned “The Greatest Warrior”. Some campers were even fully painted head-to-toe to represent their team in full camp spirit! In the end Sumo Wrestling came out on top and were victorious.
Scroll down for some pictures of the day!

Camp is well underway with only one more day until we say goodbye to our 1A campers. The weather has been fabulous and smiles can be seen everywhere on camp property. Our new choice activity program has been a great success with many campers participating in yoga, running, guitar lessons, comic book making and some cool new board games. The addition of the fitness program has brought excitement to those campers who love to get their fitness fix. Energy is high after Thursday night’s "Broadway Airband" night where all cabins performed a dance on stage. The performances were so good that the staff couldn’t choose a winner! Anticipation is building for tomorrow’s “All Day Program”. Check back here tomorrow for the big reveal of the theme and some pictures of the day!

Ever wondered who gave you those updates all summer, posted photos of our great programs and made those amazing videos at the end of each session? It was our Arts Director Laura Cooley! She also put together all three of our Arrowhead Theatre productions this summer. Thank you Laura for all of your fantastic contributions to our arts program this summer!
This past weekend we had about 70 former camp staff and LIT"s join us to celebrate the camp's 40th year. It was a great way for the staff to reconnect with old friends and to make new ones. Some of the highlights included capture the flag, a coffee house and an amazing cover band.
Thanks for all those who attended and helped to make the weekend so memorable.
