Make way for theColor Games! Known also at other camps as "Color War" or "Olympics", the Color Games are where we break the entire camp into two teams, the Blue team and the Green team, each with their own unique theme. Select counselors and members of our staff have already been voted into positions to lead their team, which are the Super Blue Mario All-stars, or the Green-age Mutant Ninja Turtles! Campers will find out which team their group is on sometime during the day on Monday, and they'll be invited to learn all about their team themes and cheers Monday afternoon at their respective teams' pep rallies. Beginning after the "Opening Ceremonies" on Tuesday morning, each activity that campers participate in will be worth points and part of the competition between blue and green. Some events such as sports are objectively won or lost, while other creative arts and events and subjectively judged based on creativity and originality. At the end of the week, all of the points from each event will be totaled and only one team will win.
