Projectile Avoidance

Posted: July 6, 2017 by John McCauley in Sports, Sr. Week

Also during this afternoon’s rotations, each team competed in three rousing games of Projectile Avoidance (which some may say seems a lot like dodge ball, which the staff can neither confirm nor deny 😉 ).  While the teams were throwing various-sized rubber balls at their opponents, team captains got a great workout shagging balls for their teams.  There are reports that some captains lost their taco lunch during this new MSC “exercise program,” but regardless, the campers had a great time!

 

Canoe Heats

Posted: July 6, 2017 by John McCauley in Sports, Sr. Week

Canoeologists Shannon & Dana Shaffer welcomed all the campers to Lake Shakamak this afternoon for the highly-anticipated canoe heats. Two teams were pitted against each other during each rotation this afternoon and navigated the lake paddling opposite directions around a T-formation. Each team was also given three balls to attempt to make a basket in a two-ring basketball hoop during the course to earn a bonus to deduct time from their heat run.

Softball

During this afternoon’s rotations, each team hit the ball diamond for exciting games of softball. Each game consisted of two innings:  the first inning was traditional using a bat and softball, while the second inning the batters used a tennis racket and tennis ball.

New to Sr. Week: SOCCER!

Posted: July 5, 2017 by John McCauley in Sports, Sr. Week

MSC Jr. Week campers have been enjoying soccer matches for many years, and now, starting today, Sr. Week campers are enjoying it as well.  Each team played three periods of soccer this afternoon, and this event looks like it may become a staple on the Sr. Week schedule.
