Session Four kicked off at Ohio Dreams with an all new group of awesome high energy campers, and the heat wave that affected most of the Midwest states over the past week. All session long other campers talked about how lucky the skiers were, since they were able to spend more time in the pool than anyone else learning new tricks on the water ramps!

Another addition to camp this week was the OD Camp Olympics. Campers and staff were divided into four teams for events like dodgeball, cross train relays, Slip N Fly best trick, and more!
Everyone is ready for some dodgeball!
Ski camper James didn't do so well in the foam pit relays, but he made up for it by getting the flag in Capture the Flag both games!

Once Camper James got the big ramp down he wasted no time taking his newly learned flips to new heights. In fact he even was ready to learn some dubs by the end of the week!
