Open Water Weekend is a long standing tradition on our team where athletes entering 5th grade and above are invited to spend a weekend at Bear Island on Lake Winnipesauke. Swimmers from all of Crimson will gather at our temporary home at YMCA Camp Lawrence where we spend the weekend participating in team building activities.
The kids will stay in cabins and be divided up by gender and age in those cabins. Friday night the kids will need to bring dinner for themselves. The meals the remainder of the weekend will be provided by the camp. All attendees will be divided into teams and, starting Friday night, will be in a running competition over the course of the weekend. Activities will include relay races, skits, scavenger hunts, and more! On Saturday night we will take the boat trip to Weirs beach and go to Kellarhause Ice Cream Shop and the Arcade.
