Color War 2nd Session – 50th Color War at TLW!
The papers have been thrown, the torch has been lit, and that means Color War 2012 for our 2nd Session campers has officially begun!! In honor of our 50th Color War here at Timber Lake West, we have spent this past week counting down through our Color War history.
Since 2nd Session Visiting Day, campers have been left clues around camp with a letter and a number corresponding to what Color War it was. Starting with “I-49-E”, meaning: Industrial Red, the 49th Color War, Eco White, which just happened during the 1st Session of this summer – the campers continued to watch history unfold one clue after another. This all led up to a ‘rewind’ video which was played for the entire camp which displayed all 100 banners from over the last 25 years here at West.
The first Color War had the teams of Red California vs. White New York. In honor of the very first Color War here at camp, we proudly announced the teams for the 50th Color War as LA RED VS. NYC WHITE. Throughout the week, campers also enjoyed numerous fake-outs (what campers thought was Color War Break-out, but were faked-out instead!) all around camp including a “sighting” of the lake monster, an early morning siren which woke everyone up, and a flash mob after the camp play.
Everyone is so excited that Color War has finally begun. What a thrill it is for everyone here to be a part of the 50th Color War at Timber Lake West! Let the competition begin!!!
