Director’s Blog – July 15, 2015
Camp 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 a “Goodnight Song.” It’s one of those goosebumps moments.
When Olympic events wrapped up on Wednesday evening, a mere 160 points separated the two teams. That means Thursday’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. Packing, pizza and parties are on the day’s itinerary, and a closing “Musical Happening” at the Cohen Theater.
I am excited to see how the day unfolds – and for another goosebumps story to write itself.

A Camp Airy chamber of commerce kind of day – warm early and throughout the afternoon, and then cooler before bed.
