Much has happened since our last installment. The Week is beginning to take shape and some teams are building their separation from the pack. There are 5 teams within 80 points of each other, a lot of points, but there are many points still available. Swim results, Stunt night, 5 team events and the Obstacle course all remain. It is anyone’s game. Texas, under Captain Ethan F. earned the critical “Sweep” this evening over Nevada, who is trying to make a late push to get closer to the leaders. A “sweep” is when your team wins the SV, JV and Prep events to take all 30 points of the activity period. Yesterday, we saw three teams sweep in the same activity period and spontaneously all three teams gathered and ran from the Trail Courts to the Mess Hall TOGETHER to celebrate. One moment they are playing against one another, and the next they are sharing in their celebration. It is the essence of Ojibwa and Collegiate Week. No matter what, we are all brothers.

Today was our last Sunday Sundae bar, and the Cabin 14’ers brought their A-game. The music was blasting and the Cabin 14’ers ensured that the camp had a good time on their last Sunday Sundae Bar. The party continued well after the Sundae’s were gone when Cabin 14 started an impromptu dance on the campus. This summer, Cabin 14 demonstrated the impact that our oldest campers can have on the entire camp population. They brought it every day, were leaders on and off the field, and gave us great hope for the amazing counselors that they will be next summer.
After all of the events were completed, camp was treated to a special concert performed by Steven Jacobson, Matthew Zimring, and Tim Gockel. The trio played several songs, including “The Cave” by Mumford and Son, “You’ll be Back” from Hamilton, “Empty Chairs and Empty Tables” from Les Miserables, “This is the Moment” from Jekyll and Hyde, and “Johnny B Goode” by Chuck Berry. The performance was incredible and they got a standing “O” from the crowd!
Three more sleeps. Stay tuned.
Here’s to Camp Ojibwa,
