The Fourth of July is a notoriously big day for Shrine Mont Camps, it's a day known as The Bishop's Jubilee. Past staffers and campers return to the mountain for a day of good food, a 5K race, bands and a chance to reconnect with a place that many of us have called home. The fourth of July also plays host to Shrine Mont's largest sporting event of the year: The Staff Vs. World Ultimate Frisbee game. A full hour of nonstop athletics as current Shrine Mont Camp staff faces off against any challenging opponents, former staffers, and Frisbee legends (aka The World Team).
This day is Shrine Mont's chance to live into the classic camp trope of challenging the rival camp to an intensive sporting event, you've seen Meatballs and... other camp movies. But the great thing about this rival team is that regardless of how hard they play, they still feel like a part of the Shrine Mont family, because they are. In this episode we talk to players from both teams to learn why and how they compete, and find out why it's good for the world to return to the mountain, even for just a weekend.
