Can’t believe we are winding down to our last days at Camp Pontiac. Where did the summer go? Even though we began to pack and clean up, that did not stop us from enjoying some time boating, hanging by the pool, playing assassin, dodgeball, tennis, and a little slip n slide.
Tonight, was our annual Prom. The campers had a great time dancing and eating ice cream sundaes. What a great way to end an amazing summer!
Today, we started the morning with a well-deserved late wake up. After breakfast, we participated in outside activities, art and crafts, wood shop, and models. The Frosh boys and Soph girls competed in the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament.
Tonight, we had many campfires around camp for all to enjoy s’mores.
Color War is over and we have a winner! Red Sheriffs won! It was an incredible five days thanks to Michael Bongino and the Casbah crew. It was certainly a close competition. Before the day’s events began, white was up by 45 points. Today, the girl’s red team swept Apache as well as the Counselor Apache. But the boy’s White Chiefs came back to win Apache. As the night began, both sides brought so much spirit into the Playhouse. Red Sheriffs won march, while the White Chiefs won Alma.
Today was a beautiful day at Camp Pontiac. All the fields and courts were filled with red and white. Today’s events included swim meets, track meets, soccer, kickball, BBK, volleyball, baseball, and hockey. After today’s events, the White Chiefs pulled ahead by less than 40 points. Tonight, we all gathered together on girl’s side to watch the rope burn. In less than 30 minutes, the Red Sheriff’s rope broke. Five minutes later, the White Chief’s rope followed. Stayed tuned for tomorrow’s results.
