No Ort Left Behind

This year at Drift Creek Camp, the directors decided to try a new theme to decrease the amount of wasted food -- they called it "No Ort Left Behind". Noah and I were at Drift Creek in June for "Parent & Me" camp, which kicked off the summer camp season. To help motivate the kids, the camp made it a boys vs. girls competition, which produced the following reaction from some of the kids...

Noah makes sure there really is no ort left behind.

The competition part of the theme was continued by lunch on Saturday, as the boys were really taking it to the girls, which produced a few tears. Rather than risk promoting the early onset of eating disorders, they decided to discontinue the competition part of the theme for the rest of the weekend.
