05 Jul Red, White, ORANGE and BLUE
In celebration of American Independence Day, both Camps gathered at S4B for a special day full of action and fun. Our Co-Directors Win and Cannie Shafer offered greetings and remarks on the lasting importance of the Fourth of July and drew attention to the memory of Mr. Ed Shafer, our beloved Director of blessed memory, who passed away earlier this year. On behalf of the entire Shafer family, Win and Cannie unveiled a newly-designed King’s Monument that now features a plaque in honor of Mr. Ed.
In addition to the campers and staff of each Camp, many alumni and friends of Susquehannock were present for the Fourth of July festivities in preparation for a special Memorial Service for Mr. Ed on Sunday, July 6th.
At the conclusion of the opening ceremonies, teams were announced and the traditional Field Days begun. The teams had been renamed in preparation for the day, using American ideals like “Equality,” “Democracy,” and “Pursuit of Happiness.” The Mixed age teams competed in a variety of games, including a Team Cheer, Tug of War, Water Balloon Toss and Sack Race.
