While 1986 Day was celebrated in the Girls camp, the Boys camp played yet another game invented at Susquehannock. MC Fireball, as it is played now, was developed by former camper and staff member Dan Logue. The game features runners circling the bases of the baseball field while the other team throws soft Gator Skin balls to get them out. Mats are erected at each base to provide a safe zone for the runners to catch their breath or work on strategy.
Like baseball, both teams have an opportunity to run and throw. New point values are assigned for runners doing a Crab Walk, Piggy Back, etc. every round.
Past Directors, staff and former campers gathered with the current girl campers to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Susquehannock for Girls on Saturday, July 9th. The esteemed guests regaled the girls with memorable stories about the founding of their camp, explained traditions and even had the girls get to their feet to participate in some sing-a-longs.
Campers were encouraged to don ’80s gear in honor of 1986 Day and many participated in the day’s activities still dressed up! We also offered a special Watercolor painting clinic, led by special guest Shelly Flint.
The day ended up with a special ’80s themed co-ed activity for the older campers of both Camps, which featured a choreographed dance-off won by the girls of Aspir Inn.
