Olympics, Day 1!

As you may know by now, IT’S OLYMPICS AT CTT! YESSSSS!!!! It broke out at 7AM with drummers drumming through camp, ushering campers out of their beds and all throughout camp (where they passed warriors of all kinds in trees, on porches and more)! And as we walked down towards the campfire area, we saw it through the olympic-colored smoke: a Colosseum built on the shores of Lake Selma! Olympics 2019: Ancient Warriors! Yellow Sweden Vikings, Red Italy Gladiators, Green Japan Samurai, Blue Greece Spartans! Let the games begin! (Check our our instagram story if you’re able!) ❤️💛💚💙

Here’s what today looks like, follow along! It’s going to be an especially good one here at CTT!
