Last week, we had a great group of kids, fantastic chaperones, and dedicated coaches. Special thanks to the US Marshals Service, Maryland National Guard Counterdrug Task Force, Maryland State Police, and Carroll County Sheriff's Office for sending their dedicated men and women to coach all week long! While we shared some pictures in our blog posts about days 1, 2, 3, and 4, here are some more pictures from last week…
The kids played on state-of-the-art fields with synthetic turf, including Cal, Sr.’s Yard, a youth-sized replica of Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
Coaches from the US Marshals Service, Maryland National Guard Counterdrug Task Force, Maryland State Police, and Carroll County Sheriff's Offic did everything from cheer from the dugout, catch (one guy brought his own catcher’s gear!), give batting tips, and so much more!
Team Blue 4 took home the unofficial prize for loudest cheering and most team spirit!
Kids challenged themselves and each other.
The climbing wall and ropes course were also opportunities to practice teamwork and communication between teammates climbing and teammates on belay down below.
Practicing good sportsmanship is also important. Campers who demonstrated good sportsmanship, leadership, and teamwork throughout the week were recognized by other campers, their chaperones, and the law enforcement and military coaches.
And the chaperones also nominated a chaperone of the week for being a great mentor and leading by example!
Back in the office, we’re busy getting ready to welcome another great group of kids, chaperones, and coaches for the next Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation camp session, which is June 11-14. It’s right around the corner, so don’t forget to come back here to the Coaches Forum or follow us on Twitter (#CRSFcamp) for camp updates starting next Tuesday!
