Team Thursday! July 24, 2014 Hi, I’m Dani and I am honored to be chosen as the Overall Captain of the Red Team. Although Red and White has only just begun, the Red Team is off to a great start. To kick off Red and White, we played the T-shirt Relay. The T-shirt relay is a fun, yet efficient way to pass out the Red and White t-shirts. I sat beside a large box of red t-shirts and passed each one to my left. The goal of the relay is to complete this in the quickest time. The reds finished merely seconds before the whites, which made it both competitive and fun.Yesterday, due to the warm weather, we played Red and White Water Relays! My little team competed against Kate’s little team. We competed against each other in a variety of events. For example, we did a water relay in which a member of your team had to run into the lake holding a cup and then run back out to dump the water into a pitcher. The winner of this relay was determined based off of who completed this the fastest. Luckily, my red little team finished this event first! It was both exciting and fun! After an eventful afternoon of Water Relays, we had our first practice in preparation for The Sing.The Sing, is one of the largest Red and White events. In the simplest of terms, the sing consists of four songs: a peppy song, a slow song, a team song, and a theme song. All of the aforementioned songs are sung as a team in unison. Also, the red Senior Cabin girls are working to make an individual costume for each camper! We can’t wait to finish making all of the costumes for each of your girls! Sing practice was a blast and I know The Sing will be too. I couldn’t be happier with my team and I can expect that the rest of the session will be just as great if not better. Hi! My name is Lexi and I’m the Overall Captain of the White Team! I am having so much fun with the White team girls during all the games! The Peanut Hunt is one I love! 3,000 Red and White mints were thrown all over the campgrounds. The White co-captains and I ran around camp collecting mints for our team, while the rest of the girls were surrounding the mints. They couldn’t talk, the only way they could get our attention was to scream cah-caw. It’s so funny and I had a great time! We collected over 1,500 mints and even won the game! We also played a game that’s one of my personal favorites- Capture the Flag. The team is divided into different positions: flag guard, jail guard, runner, and defense. I’m a runner and your daughter did a phenomenal job as a (fill in the blank.) Our team and the Red-team both did so well and I hope everyone had as much fun as I did! There was a tie so we had a tie-breaker round where the Whites captured the flag and won! Yay! As if camp couldn’t get any better, we had grilled cheese and tomato soup for lunch today! Yum! Can’t wait to play more games! Your daughters are so spirited and I’m having so much fun getting to know them all!
