Cannonball Did Fly

Argh! Yesterday be Pirate Day here at CTT where ye campers competed in a pirate flag making competition, splash contests, walk the plank, water polo, and a giant pirate relay race complete with dizzybat, crabwalking, and a chanting of the drunken pirate song. The day continued with a scavenger hunt all over camp to find “pieces of eight” and then woo Calypso (counselor Rachel) by making her laugh. The night ended with a Pirates Ball and all were merry.

Aside from the pirate activities, the past couple days have also been eventful for some campers. On Wednesday, we went to watch the Winchester Royals vanquish the Front Royal Cardinals and a few lucky campers and counselors got the rare opportunity to stay after the game and run around on the baseball diamond for a wheelbarrow race, mill-and-grab, and capture the flag. Additionally, Hayley Sanders climbed up the hard side of the wall, Julia Perline won a game of knockout in archery, and Matt Kasoff won a standing-on-one-leg contest with twenty-five minutes on one leg!

Today, the senior campers go go-karting and Boys Leagues have a large dodgeball tournament. Tonight is Dance Thru the Decades where each cabin gets a decade to choreograph a dance to it and Saturday, CTT has its very own carnival with a moon bounce and other fun carnival games. Time for a great weekend!
