One of the biggest highlights of the summer is Counselor Skit Night during Second Session. Over the last few years, the staff has augmented the traditional live action skits with pre-recorded videos that highlight life at Camp on an entirely different level.

01 Aug Serengeti Plains

As the soothing sounds of Toto’s “Africa” emanated, campers from S4B and S4G gathered for a special activity called Serengeti Plains on Wednesday, July 31st.

Teams called herds named after various species indigenous to Africa complete various Challenge Course-style stations around the entire campus. Herds get points for successfully completing each activity. The herds may complete a station two times, but not consecutively and with a modification to make the second attempt more difficult.

Every member of each herd is responsible for guarding a “tail” that is tucked into the back of their shorts. Predators roam the plain and will engage herds as they travel from station to station. Team members can still participate in the events after losing their tail, but if the entire herd loses all the tails it becomes extinct.

To combat this, herds can win tails back by locating the Wise Sage and correctly answering Camp trivia questions. Teams may also win back tails by catching the Poacher who is also roaming the Plains.

The Stations:
Es-Cape of Good Rope
Tripoli Mile Island
Crossing the Sahara-aaaaaaaaaaah
Molten Snows of Kilimanjaro
Ghana Score a Sene-g(o)al
Wavin’ Flag
Break the Safe-ari
Eggs Togo
Madagas-cars
De-Nile a Crocodile
Congo Power Line

31 Jul New Game Alert: American Gladiator

The members of S4B cabins Tumble Inn, Palais Royale and Pepper Box made history on Monday, July 29 by participating in a new game based on the “American Gladiators” television game show. Campers negotiated an obstacle course while dodging balls thrown by the opponent. If hit by a ball, campers started over at the beginning of the course during a three minute period.

This game was a magnificent success as you can plainly see from the smiles of all participants!
