Olympic Preview

    The Olympics here at LifeCamp is the last chance for all groups to gain points for their color. This is when all the groups do multiple activities over a series of days, but they have time before next week to practice for the real Olympics. The events that are in the Olympics are the basketball dribble, Frisbee toss, softball toss, 50 meter run, watermelon football, long distance run, bean bag toss, Nok hockey, soccer kick, and jumping.  One of the most popular events each year is watermelon football.  Everyone loves the opening ceremonies where each color’s flag is marched in front of the whole camp.  Then the Olympic torch is lit and the games begin!
