Week 8 Highlights
The Crestwood Games always brings a huge amount of spirit and excitement to the final week of the summer. It was a three day back and forth battle between the Green Army and the White Navy. Our teams faced off on the athletic fields, in bucket brigades, and plenty of cheer offs. Going into the final three events at closing ceremonies, it was still a very tight race. The Green Army won the newest event of the closing ceremonies, “The Ultimate Dance Off”. The White Navy captured both of the traditional events, Musical Chairs and the Tug of War. When all the events were completed and all the points totaled, it was the White Navy just edging out the Green Army for the victory.
Traditionally the final day of the Crestwood Games serves as a reminder to campers that winning should never come before being a good sport. At the end of the day it is no longer Green VERSUS White but Green AND White together celebrating the final two days of the summer.
Group T-Shirt Day
One of the nicest days at Crestwood for spirit and comradery is Group T-Shirt Day. Every group leader creates a t-shirt design and all of our campers receive their white shirt back with their group’s design printed on it. It is always a great day for Crestwood pride!
End of Summer Celebration
This year’s end of summer celebration was a memory sharing ceremony. Groups were asked to discuss highlights, funny moments, and anything that made this summer a special one. Groups then gathered by division at the stage to share their 2015 summer highlights. Campers were invited onto the stage, one group at a time and their group leader shared the group’s memories of the summer. After the sharing, all groups poured sand of different colors into a large jar to be displayed year round.

WEEK 7 HIGHLIGHTS
POW stands for Party on Wheels. This past week campers and staff were pleasantly surprised, when a music playing golf cart pulled up in front of them for a spontaneous dance party. These spur-of-the-moment dance parties occurred on the tennis courts, waiting for the pool, while on the bungee, on our sports fields, or simply walking around the grounds of Crestwood.
Campers really look forward to Foam Party Week all summer long. Last week the squeals of laughter could be heard all over Crestwood while every camper took turns playing in the bubbles and foam.
Crazy Hat Day
Last Wednesday campers and staff got into the spirit of Crazy Hat Day while paying a tribute to Crestwood’s founder, Norman Schnittman, who loved wearing his crazy hats every afternoon.
The “Coolest Day” of the summer is Water Carnival where Crestwood’s pools get converted into a summer water wonderland for our lucky campers.
We are so proud of all the Crestwood campers who were involved in our end of the summer Drama show performance of The Wizard of Oz. Both casts last Wednesday and Thursday night did an amazing job!
Our Pre-School and Kindergarten campers enjoyed an incredible Bubble Trouble show as their Special Event last Friday. Both campers and staff were amazed at the way Jeff the bubble guy was able to create bubbles using everyday items like necklaces and hats.
Talent Shows Part 2
There was a whole lot of dancing going on when the 1st through 6th graders had their second round of talent shows during their Friday Special Event. A big thank you goes out to the audience of campers who were singing and dancing along with the performances.
Crestwood Games Break
The excitement of Crestwood Games started this past Friday. To keep the break top secret, campers were told to gather on the sports field to welcome back the News 12 helicopter. To the campers surprise and delight the Green Army and White Navy generals took to the field to begin the games.
