The 2014 Olympics certainly did not disappoint. TP was witness to another awesome competition. The best part of it all for most campers is almost always making the team flags and creating energetic cheers. Another cool dynamic of this unique event is that it gives campers an ability to participate in a variety of events. Moreover, this variety ensures that if someone is not strong in one type of event, he’s able to make up for it in another. It always seems to balance itself out, making it arguably the most popular activity of the summer.

Not everybody walks away with a handful of blue, red or white ribbons. However what’s most important is that one comes away with a sense of team unity, personal effort and an overall sense of competition. Just participating in an event can make someone feel great about himself. The Olympics provides us with a chance to experience individual achievements without sacrificing the satisfaction of teamwork and camaraderie.

Congratulations to all those who participated and helped organize another successful event. Can’t wait to see what next year’s flags are going to look like!
