Friday, August 5

Today was the final day of color war and that can only mean one thing: the famous Whacked Up Relay. The relay took place in the morning and consisted of dozens of events. Eating surprise, soccer shot, around the world basketball, marshmallow toss and a pie eating contest are just some of the events. After several hours when the relay was complete there could only be one winning team. Without further adieu a huge congratulations to the Golden State Warriors. The battle was hard fought and both teams left it all on the field. So another congratulations to the Colorado Avalanche. After the relay the boys had lunch and then began to pack and prepare for their departure. Following the packing period was dinner. It wouldn’t be BSC if we didn’t fit in one last Pizza Friday. The closing campfire took place after dinner at the lineup area. The counselors shared some words of encouragement and advice for the campers. During the first week the boys wrote their goals for camp on a piece of wood. Tonight at the end of the fire the campers each got the opportunity to toss their piece of wood into the fire to commemorate their time here and all that they achieved. As the fire died down the group watched a slideshow of photos from the session. It was a beautiful celebration and the perfect way to end the session as well as the summer. It comes with a heavy heart to say that this is the last BSC blog post of the summer. It has been a pleasure watching the campers and counselors develop over the last few weeks and we hope to see everyone back at Bridgton Sports Camp next summer. Thank you to all the BSC families and friends, For one final time: GO BSC!!!!
