Over the course of the past few days, all of CSL participated in the highly anticipated Color War 12. For those of you who don't know what Color War is, it is a signature program where all of camp gets split into 2 teams (red and blue), and compete in various activities for 2 full days (similar to Mass Program).
Color War as a whole is a key program that everyone in camp can participate in. Through hard work and good sportsmanship, all of camp and the village of Mohawk as a whole were able to bond together.
Here's what some members of Mohawk had to say about the program:
Adam B. (M-6) “We learned how to trust our teammates and work together as a team and helps us appreciate other people more,”
Sam J. (M-1) “My favorite part of this Color War were the signatures. I liked The Library because we could work together as a team to achieve a victory.”
Asher Y., JJ B., and Daniel S. (M-3) “Color War is important because it helps people get in the spotlight who typically wouldn't get the attention. It also brings people together and appreciates everyone else more."
As you can see, Mohawk along with the rest of camp joined together in color war to compete towards a greater goal. All of Mohawk can agree that although it's great to achieve victory, it's ok to fail and important to learn how to do so. This is part of why Color War and camp are so great. We go through the good and bad times together as a community, and learn important life lessons along the way. Between hard work, sportsmanship, and teamwork Color War teaches many of these life lessons.
