06 Jul Fourth of July Field Days
Both Camps gathered up the hill on a gorgeous Monday to celebrate American Independence Day in true Camp style. After being welcomed by Director Win Shafer, Head of S4G Trish Pearson offered an address that incorporated a reflection on how music relates to the spirit of the United States.
The co-ed teams were then announced with a new wrinkle for this year’s events: each team was given a state to represent, which led to a lot of creative cheers and spirited celebrations. The teams participated in some new events, as well: the Sponge-to-Bucket Relay, Scavenger Hunt and the Balloon Shave. These new additions joined the returning popular favorites: Tug-O-War and Sack Race.
After completing all the events, campers went down the Lake for a refreshing dip and then enjoyed a cook-out at fireside. Team California, consisting of campers from Seldom Inn (S4B) and one-half of Razz Inn (S4G) emerged victorious when all the tabulations had been completed. Congratulations, everyone!
