13 Aug Orange and Blue Spirit Week

The Orange and Blue Competition is one of the most vital aspects of camp life and is extremely popular with campers and counselors alike.  S4B instituted a Spirit Week during Second Session, where competitions were not limited to the playing fields and courts.  Teams were encouraged to wear their respective Orange and Blue for the entire day, and special games were held at meals and during Morning Meeting.  The following videos feature three of these games:

The culmination of the Orange and Blue competition is Gigantus Ball, which is played on three fields and includes every camper and counselor.
