So Much to Do…So Little Time

Much of the fun and enthusiasm at Kawanhee is centered upon the Maroon – Grey competition.  Every camper is included on one of the teams and endeavors to earn points for his team by achieving certain benchmarks in the scheduled activities and by participating in certain camp-wide competitions, usually held on Saturday afternoons.  A Saturday afternoon might feature a rousing game of Capture the Flag, a Woodsmen’s Meet, an Obstacle Course or a series of athletic events. The running score is announced at Saturday evening campfires, and the final score is a highlight of the Closing Ceremony on the season’s final day.
