Camelympics pits friends against friends in the ultimate residence hall competition

12/28/2010

The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat, the questionable broom quality… It's Camelympics, one of Connecticut College's most exciting events, pitting residence hall against residence hall in feats of strength! But Camel combatants don't compete in traditional Olympic contests like decathlon, curling or rhythmic gymnastics. These champions face each other down on the dodgeball court, the floor hockey field and the Scrabble table. They play Jenga, Wii Golf and Bowling and basketball. They even Muggle through Quidditch. It can all be seen in the gripping Camelympics video on Connecticut College's YouTube Channel. Prepare to be amazed at the athleticism and courage displayed by these warriors.
