Camp History

One of the neat things about SB2W is the high return rate of campers.  As a result there are deep rooted traditions and strong term and team pride.  Romans and Galatians have been competing to the Glory of God since 1966 and we have been keeping track.

One of the hardest personal achievements to be earned at camp is the Overall Super ‘S’.  Completing the hardest requirements in each activity is hard enough, doing it in just two short weeks is incredible.  Since the start of Summer’s Best over 2200 Super ‘S’ have been awarded.
