Final Days of Summer 2017

As we enter the last day of our 2017 Color War, we can take a look back at the amazing four-day event we’ve just been through. It’s been incredibly gratifying to watch our oldest campers lead the camp with such ease and respect. While these leaders had a good understanding of the responsibility that was before them last Friday – they now have a true understanding of what it means to take charge of a group of campers and counselors – about 150 total per team – through this very special event. Everyone wants to win Color War. Campers and counselors fought hard on the fields, on the courts, at the lake, on the stage and at various programs throughout camp. But tomorrow, when the plaques are revealed, and the floats are presented and the final scores are announced, we’ll all come together as one CBR family for the last 12 hours of the 2017 camp season. It’s been an incredible seven weeks together…and we look forward to revamping for an even more incredible 2018 season with our camp family.
