Day 1 always starts the same with the infamous walk from “the cottage” with the four captains, DC and Jamie. The group greets camp, and the Jelly Bean Ceremony begins. Group by group, we toss a coin, a captain picks a green or white jelly bean, and the teams form. The picking excitement peaks when the staff captains pick their bean, and the green and white campers learn who will lead them for the next five days.
Who is on which team you ask? Take a look at the link at the top of this report and you will see which color your camper is for the summer 2011 Color War.
Then, take a look at the photos. We apologize, there are a lot. And there will continue to be a lot for the remainder of our Green and White competition as they will tell you the story. You will see the intensity, the excitement, the sweat, the emotion. We encourage intensity, we expect hard play, we demand good sportsmanship. And we are off to a great start …
Sweet dreams from the Realm.
