It’s go time! This year, we’re teaming up with our good friends over at The Go Game to make Color Wars better than ever. During Color Wars, campers are divided into either two or four teams – blue, red, yellow, or green – where they compete in contests, games, and relay races for points awarded from our very official judges. We’re talking synchronized swimming, sock wrestling, pie eating and other ridiculous competitions. The folks over at The Go Game are going take all of this to a whole new level and we CANNOT wait!
The Go Game crew is made up of professional game runners who place play above all else. The vision of The Go Game is to bring playfulness to an often serious world. This summer, expect even more Color War intensity, silliness, and overall spontaneous shenanigans throughout our days at camp. Keep an eye out for game runners dressed in bright orange jumpsuits — they’ll be the ones breaking out into impromptu games and refereeing Zorb soccer games (which is something you’ll definitely want to join in on) at the Parade Field. And if you ever need a partner for a good ol’ fashioned Thumb War or an epic game of Rock, Paper, Scissors, be sure to ask one of these pro gamers. They live and breathe games, no matter the level.
Think your “W” could use a little play? Be sure to spend some time with The Go Game once you’re out of the woods. You could have your new friends in orange jumpsuits come play with your company to lead team building that will resemble the craziness of camp’s Color Wars. The Go Game’s real world adventure games get you running around the streets of your city on an urban scavenger hunt and playing Tug of War with your co-workers. These games help groups learn about each other, their community, and their neighborhood by having them complete silly challenges…in public.
While unplugging at Camp Grounded, The Go Game goes completely analog. But once they’re back on the grid, they creatively use their tech to help folks connect and play outside. We’re fans of anyone who can find a way to use their technology to actually bring people together. But if you think your “W” needs a total tech break, The Go Game has some offline games too. The Slow Game helps bring mindfulness, awareness and meditation to companies who spend most of their days staring down at their devices.
