We finished up an unbelievable week of camp. Wednesday was highlighted by a college workshop led by Bard Alumni and current college counselor Deshaun Houston. He spoke about myth and misconceptions about college and the process of applying and attending. Deshaun’s workshop sparked some intense debate and left everyone involved much more educated about the many opportunities found in higher education. Congrats to Laquyse Moore for winning camper of the day.
Thursday brought about a photography workshop led by professional photographer Nick Levitin. After a presentation by Nick the students were each given disposable cameras and the freedom to roam the Bard campus capturing whatever they found interesting. Thursday was also overnight. The students had a relaxing barbecue and kick ball game. Afterwards, everyone headed for the gym for the competition finals and staff vs camper all star game. After some late drama the staff was able to squeeze out a close win. Malcom Scott was the big winner of the night as he took home the 3 point contest, hot shot, and one on one championships. Zack Hedgepath won the free throw competition and Danny Folds won the dunk contest. Check out one of his winning dunks below.
After spending a night in the Stone Row dorms the campers had a great last day of camp. The league that had been going on all week ended with a championship win for Coach Pat’s Team. They finished a week of overwhelming teams with their speed, athleticism, and unselfishness. Campers of the day for Thursday and Friday were Kamrul Hassan, Ellis Richardson, and Evian Coleman. Danny Folds took home camper of the week for his unwavering positive energy, great attitude and exceptional work ethic.
