This one-day, all camp program revolves around a central theme. Your team could be competing to be the champion professional wrestler, the medieval conqueror that gains the most land, or the stranded passengers that make it off the island. Camp is broken into 3-5 teams, allowing for everyone to create closer bonds outside of their village. Campers and staff compete in various team, group, and individual challenges to gain points and reign supreme.
The most recognizable program at CSL, Color War has grown to be the favorite competition for many campers and staff. This intense two-day, two-team program involves a little something for everyone with varying activities across all of our program areas. Color War creates opportunities for each team to engage in exciting and action packed competition with a focus on teamwork, creativity, sportsmanship and ruach (spirit).
Big Brother/Big Sister
Campers in Cayuga and Onondaga are paired with a big brother or sister Senior Camper, who will serve as their friend and mentor throughout the session. There are specific evening programs that brothers and sisters will do together, as well as designated meals throughout the week where they get to eat as a family. As Senior Campers continue on at camp, many get the chance to be a counselor for a camper that used to be their little brother or sister!
