Middle Camp Girls held its Euro Bowl competition! CIT girls reffed this high-energy, skillful tournament. After all of the intense rounds of games, teams of girls jumped into our Mane Pool, dressed still in their team uniforms, for a fun cool-down.


Lower Camp Boys had their own special event...Superhero Day! The boys erupted with excitement when Jamie, David, and Ross showed up in Superhero costumes. They rushed back to their bunks to get ready and dress in their team colors for their day of friendly competition. Events included a Rescue Ronen scavenger hunt, a Batman Bolt around the racetrack, Hawkeye Bullseye at Archery, and Spiderman Sprints at Waterpark. The teams and captains were as follows:


Red Spiderman: Jordan Schutzer, Alex Mulinec, Jett Azizi, & Isaac Aldad

Blue Captain America: Isaac Loew, Ashton Mechanic, Ari Wolff, & Ilan Honig

White Iron Man: Jake Milazzo, Hudson Weisenberg, Harry Kontorovich, & Brody Steinberger

Orange Flash: Chandller Plask, Dylan Klein, Zach Klein, & Noah Stevens

Black Batman: Ori Mann, Landon Greene, Jax Steinberg, & Lucas Yedvarb


Team Black Batman won Superhero Day!


Upper Camp Boys had a spirited and fierce doubles, double-elimination Pickleball tournament in the morning and MCB followed up with their own in the afternoon. Our 8th grade soccer tournament was a huge draw as well, and crowds of our campers and CIT's took turns cheering our team on to victory against Silver Lake, Timberlake West, and Iroquois Springs. Our Lokanda team swept the tournament with four straight wins! Standout playing by forward, Max Fliegel, who scored four goals, and impressive goal tending by Max Burns and Ethan Newman. It was an amazing collaborative defensive effort ensuring that the team only let in one goal across all four games! Go Lions!


Upper Camp Girls were busy planning for Fashion Show. Subbie Girls through Upper Teens designed and choreographed fashion, art, and dance elements around the theme of "Popular Teen TV." All of girls camp spent the watching UCG showcase their creative efforts. After a fabulously fashionable display of costumes, banner, a dance, interview, and lip sync, the overall winner was.... iCarly!!!!


Today, we have a full day of fun and sun ahead. Tonight, we will dine on a traditional Shabbat dinner and have services down by the lake led by our CITs. We will also pay recognition to special campers who exemplified LOYALTY this past week, our first commendable trait in the L-O-K-A-N-D-A acronym.


It really is a Fabulous Friday!
