During Aquagatta — a very special day of the summer — campers are assigned to one of four pirate teams and spend the day competing in water-focused contests. After a special wake-up, each camper dons his “war paint” before heading out for the first contest of the day: a treasure hunt complete with coded clues for all age groups. The afternoon brings many fun, zany water contests and ends with the famous water slide ball toss. The evening is capped by a celebration featuring root beer floats for all teams!
The Salad Bowl is our flag football version of the Super Bowl. Held on the last Sunday of camp, this event is open to parents and friends of RAC. In the week leading up to the game, campers are divided into an upper and lower division and practice with their team. We kick off the event with a special tailgate lunch, and the two flag football games follow. The event ends with a steak fry celebration.
The Camp Play is the biggest special event at Red Arrow. During the last two weeks of camp, everyone who wishes to be a part of the play — a fun, musical production — practices during their rest period and free time. Several hundred people (parents, friends, neighbors) attend the boys’ standing-room-only productions over the course of two evenings.
Closing ceremonies starts early in the morning. This is when we award the Honor Campers of the summer, the Friendship cut and the Pete Johnson Award.
