Frost Valley Olympics, summer 1982. All the teams were at the waterfront all afternoon. At left you see me & Dave David Allen, host country judges, supervising the incredible Yak Ball event. (Yak Ball = water soccer in kayaks, street hockey goals placed in row boats at either end of the “court.”) Photo taken from the boathouse by Walid Sakr, of Lebanon, Lenape counselor.

The main day of events for the 2017 Frost Valley Olympics is today. The planners were calm during a morning light rain, deciding to conduct the games outdoors! Aand soon the precipitation stopped and the sun started to appear. Great call! Olympics mostly outside. Yes. Here are some photos I took during the morning games.

One of the true joys of working on our Activities Department is the designing and execution of all-camp events. Olympix is an old camp tradition that evolves and grows year to year, with this year being no different. The host team was Argentina, and our 8 competing nations were made from the nationalities of some international members of our counselor staff.

There is so much that can be said for this event. It is passion and pride. It is competition on a level playing field; who can be the most spirited, enthusiastic and sporting. It is all of camp, for 2 days, loving the experience together in one community.
