Born In The USA

Happy 4th of July everybody! Last night, CTT celebrated America’s birthday a bit early with a traditional American baseball game. Cabin 3 had fun getting autographed balls from the Winchester Royals players. Travis Beggs had the biggest smile on his face when he got to eat nachos and watch the game, and our international campers and counselors had a blast seeing their first American baseball game. Even though the Waynesboro Generals beat our Winchester Royals, everybody still had fun and enjoyed the fireworks show from a distance.

Today, we have already begun celebrating the 4th. Matthew “Ziggy” Ziegelstein woke up the camp today (in a good way) by playing Jimi Hendrix’s rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” on guitar. Instead of the usual “Good Morning Ladies” shouted at Dippies, it was “AMERICA!” and at breakfast today, Boys Side sang the national anthem, “God Bless America”, and “America the Beautiful.” The fun will continue throughout the day with everyone wearing red, white, and blue and their USA shirts.

Yesterday, Boys Leagues and CTTFFL continued with Toby’s Care Bears defeating Sam P’s Albuquerque Surge with Ryan Bernstein as the MVP getting a grand slam and Sam F’s Fluorescent Caboose Traveling Mimes bested Albert’s Leaders of the Way in a nail-bitingly intense game of dodgeball ending 7-6 in favor of the Mimes. In the CTTFFL, the Yellow Polka-Dotted Hippopotami beat the Red Bulls 13-0 and sadly, the Orange Crush beat my Purple Nurples 14-7. Ignacio Rodriguez had a good day yesterday winning best trick dive at the pool and a game of knockout in basketball. Sam Swindell won a game of knockout. Jen Heiman, Sami Zerwitz, Hayley Sanders, Katherine Barnes, and Sydney Alloy made it on the hill in golf. Enrique Rodriguez and Javier Alonso shot bullseyes. Michelle Pollowitz caught a fish and Jaime Sanz, Hayley Sanders, Lucia Sanz, and Anna Hutzler made it up the new climbing wall.

Today is choose your own adventure day where campers pick new activities for the afternoon and in the evening, we have an America-themed campfire.
