Camp Traditions

We have many storied traditions that campers and counselors alike come to fall in love with. Our traditions add a certain magic to camp. Here are some of our favorites.

Trojan/Spartan Games

All Champions campers are either a member of the Trojan or Spartan tribe. Each Sunday the two teams face each other in the Olympic-style Trojan/Spartan Games. The games are a great opportunity to build teamwork and sportsmanship skills—and they’re incredibly fun!

Flag Raising

Each day begins with the raising of the American flag and the singing of the national anthem. This gives us a chance to honor our country, share announcements, and start the day with a bang!

Cabin Inspection

Each day after lunch, campers and counselors make their beds, pack trunks neatly, sweep the cabin floor, and take out the trash to prepare for inspection. Everybody’s favorite thing? Nah—but it’s a great way to develop teamwork and responsibility. Besides, if your cabin passes inspection one day, you don’t have inspection the following day!


We end each day with our Torchlight ceremony. It’s a great time for the entire camp to get together as a Champions family to sing, cheer on the day’s Torchlighter (camper of the day), and wind down for the night. This is perhaps the most beloved tradition of all!
