Imagine your heart is pounding, palms are sweating, you’re cheering so loud it hurts, you’re staring down your competition and the sound of fierce excitement stings your ears. You can’t sit still, you’re anxious to win, you fight to win, you must win. THIS, is the Battle of the Ends.
Here at Camp Widjiitiwin we have a tradition every Tuesday night that ultimately ends in seeing who is better; the boys end or the girls end. This tradition is called Battle of the Ends, where the boys and girls compete to show each other what they are worth. The night kicks off with cheers, (theme related usually) and the two ends have time to make up a cheer, they can also dress up accordingly and make up a dance (for extra points of course!). I’d have to say, I am quite impressed with some of the cheers that I have heard. After that, they must meet at the field to present the cheers to the judge panel. The winning gender goes inside first before we get to the real challenges.
