We are really big fans of the Olympics around Pine Cove. This should come as no surprise, since at camp we can turn anything into good, healthy competition. (Did someone say “Pit ‘n’ Palace?”)
Admittedly, it’s a little easier for most of us to relate to the Summer Olympics, because hey, they’ve got pools, and we’ve got pools! They’ve got kayaks, we’ve got kayaks! They’ve got basketballs, we’ve got basketballs! They’ve got tennis courts, we’ve got… pickleball!
But what about the Winter Olympics? Granted, most of us hail from the south, and we’ve never tried ski jumping. We have to Google the “Nordic combined” event every time. But what if Pine Cove hosted the Winter Olympics? What would our events be?
Of course, we would have to wait for a snowy Texas or South Carolina day for these events to work. (And we’d let people wear jackets and wetsuits for these events. We’re not savages!)
Here’s what we’re thinking:
These ideas have not been approved (or even seen) by our safety team. But we think it would be seriously fun! Winter Olympics at Pine Cove in 2022, anyone?
*Fun fact: Did you know our Timbers Director, “Philly,” once trained on the Junior Olympics team for the Luge? Some of his training mates will be competing for Team USA this year!
