Director’s Blog – August 7, 2015

713bf04d-f45b-4b04-b40a-4e9bc4565b79Camp Airy boys take their Olympics seriously. Whether it’s a ballgame, a bunk inspection, a team song at Song Fest or a gameshow, our campers are in it to win it. Our boys also know how to “press pause” on Olympics and come together as a whole camp for Shabbat and our “Goodnight Song.” It’s one of those goosebumps moments.

When Olympic events wrapped up on Friday evening, about 600 points separated the two teams. That means Saturday’s events will decide the Olympics champion. Olympic Breakfast Bingo will commence the festivities, followed by Olympic Clean Up. It’s possible that before the teams even head off to their morning events, the lead could have changed hands. Our boys will compete up until the tug of war and flag presentations after lunch. And then it will be goosebumps time.

Win or lose, both teams will applaud one another for the competition. The generals, exhausted and with barely any voice, will try and articulate their thoughts. And then our green versus white transforms back into green and white. Teams reform into units, and the friendships of summer 2015 will grow stronger as the boys enjoy their last day of the session. Our final Havdalah, led by the 2015 CITs, the Counselor Show, and pizza and parties are on the evening’s agenda.

I am excited to see how the day unfolds – and for another goosebumps story to write itself.
