The 50th Anniversary Decathlon

It's that time of the year again! It's the time where campers compete against each other to break records and prove their strength and endurance in the CBR decathlon. This year will be the 50th decathlon at CBR and we hope we aren't disappointed. There are various activities for the campers to compete in and all campers participate in each activity. Some of these activities include 40 yard dashes, shuttle runs, basketball drills, soccer drills, the run of endurance, the high jump, and more. Each camper is timed in the activity and will attempt to break records and win awards. Records and medals are divided by village and there is a first, second, and third place winner for each village. If a camper breaks a record they will be recognized as the record holder until someone new breaks their record! The campers wait all year and train days before to reach their record breaking goals! It's a very exciting day at CBR and we wish all campers the best of luck!
