The pinnacle of Winnebagoe programming is the annual battle of Green vs. Grey. Rooted in history, the rivals of Green and Grey face each other every August. The conflict is an ongoing challenge of athletic ability, artistic and musical skill and prowess of mind and body. We conjure up the spirits of the Hawk and the Wolf, Winnebagoe’s totems, and carry out the contest with sportsmanship and respect for those who came before us.
Once you are green, you are “forever green.” Once you are grey, you are “eternally grey.” Once a family member has been placed on a team, all members of that family assume that colour. Green vs Grey becomes a point of family pride – one of continuing tradition and yet another way that Winnebagoe creates memorable and lasting connections. At Winnebagoe every camper is asked this question: Are you Forever Green, or are you Eternally Grey?
