Happy Monday and first day of Color Wars!! Color Wars is a summer tradition!! The kids and the counselors are split up into four teams: red, yellow, green and blue. All week every team competes in competitions and activities to win The Golden Dodgeball Trophy!! To kick off the week, each team chose two counselors to compete in the Assembly. They played multiple games of Pocket Tag with the blue team winning this Assembly!!
Each year we choose a theme for Color Wars!! This years theme was Disney!! Each color is represented by a different Disney movie. Toy Story is represented by the Red Team, Frozen is represented by the Blue Team, The Lion King is represented by the Yellow Team and The Jungle Book is represented by the Green Team!!
