Olympix Part II
Today was the second day of our annual Olympix, an event that many Frost Vallers look forward to all year. After taking care of t shirts, banners, and learning cheers their first day, it was now time to get down to business!
Our 8 teams (Brazil, Portugal, France, South Africa, Japan, Paraguay, Germany, and Mexico) took part in a range of activities today, including Marquez Kart (a game created by a staff member named Marquez. It’s an adaptation of Mario Kart involving teams racing around an obstacle course), Upside Down Volleyball, and a Dance Off described by one camper as “the biggest dance party I’ve ever been to”. Our campers and staff had an incredible day, despite a little bit of wet weather.
Tonight ended with the closing ceremonies where each country presented a cultural performance. Awards were handed out including most creative, most fun, and the biggest award of all, most spirited. The big winners of that award were Brazil! They are pictured below performing at the closing ceremonies.
