Sunday: O-Ridge-inal Occupational Olympics Who will carry in the torch? The 2021 O-Ridge-inal Occupational Olympics will allow you to sprint to the finish line in your best career day attire. So iron your business attire, train hard, and let’s GO FOR GOLD! Remember, resumés are required.

Monday: ADs, 80s, Eighties The Age of Discovery is amongst us. Ridge wants to explore the eras ranging from Renaissance Era to “bad” hair days. Gladiator shoes, crazy windsuits, and walkers are welcome! But shh...we have to be careful not to wake up our geriatrics.

Wednesday: Boujee Bayou Boogie Where’d you come from? Where’d you go, Cotton Eyed Joe?! Deck out in your high dollar overalls; we are taking over the dance floor to Boogie. Diamonds won’t be needed here, because dance moves will shine through. Let's geaux dance!

Thursday: Yacht Club Don't forget, pinky up! Let’s set sail for destination relaxation. Nautical hats, swim attire and a towel will be plenty enough to relax by the pool, wake park, and lakefront.

Friday: Ridge Night LIve Calling all seniors! It's your time under the big lights (cleats encouraged)! Let's close out a fun week with a full course dinner followed by entertainment... maybe even starring your counselor! Dress in modest church attire ready for an evening of laughs!
