Inter-Camp Softball Success!
Today 13 of our female campers and two counselor coaches boarded a van and headed over to nearby camp Seeds of Peace for an inter-camp softball game. When our campers arrived, a Seeds of Peace counselor started the day off by explaining that Seeds of Peace camp is for kids from war-torn countries or for kids who have come to the US as refugees. After the introduction and welcome, everyone took to the field.
Camp North Star locked the part in green CNS t-shirts and softballball-esque knee socks. Some girls even sported black paint under their eyes! The coordinated outfits matched the coordinated plays and sportsmanship on the softball field. Coach Jolie reported that “the girls worked so well together as a team. Even though we only had a few practices, it felt like we’d been a team forever.”
Camper Hayley pitched the whole game, while her sister Jayne took on the role of catcher. Their efforts were supported by the rest of the field crew, including another sister duo, Olivia and Victoria.
It was a tough, but friendly game, and in the end, a tie! Both teams earned nine runs apiece, making the final score 9-9. Coach Josh said that “he couldn’t be happier with how the day went. This year marks Camp North Star’s first year playing inter-camp baseball and softball and everyone has really worked hard to make the experience fun and rewarding. I can’t wait for next year!”
