What does Tribal Wars look like at High School Summer Camp?

Tribal Wars is a huge highlight for many students at camp. As camp begins, students are broken up into large groups, we call them ‘tribes’, and all week they work together to gain points by doing team building games.

The games are designed with two main things in mind: inclusion and safety. We want the most students as possible to be able to participate and have a great time getting to know each other as they work together. This is done in a manner that protects the students from harm. And all the while, they have a great time doing it!

Every tribe has a color. A great idea is to purchase an inexpensive item like a t-shirt or bandana to wear during Tribal Wars. Please bring clothes that can get dirty, messy, and/or destroyed for Tribal Wars

How can my student use the camp bank at High School Summer Camp?

If you prefer your student to be ‘cashless at camp’ you can deposit money into an individually created ‘bank’ account to be used for purchases at the camp store.  Deposits can be made electronically during registration, or electronically during camp. If students bring cash to camp, they can make a deposit to the bank during the store hours.
