From humble beginnings, Camp Gray’s Cassidy Games has grown into a highlight for campers and staffers alike. Full of pageantry, goofiness, and fun, the Cassidy Games is a week-long competition taking place during every session of Summer Camp (except Mini Camp).

Named after former Camp Director, Fr. Kevin Cassidy, the Games provide a great opportunity to reap the benefits of healthy competition. Throughout the week points are tallied while campers grow in teamwork, sportsmanship, respect, etc. The Games then culminate on Camp’s final night with three mini-battles (games which are appropriate for the abilities of each age level), and the epic Lake Jake Relay Race. At the conclusion of the Relay Race, the Chief that first raises his/her team flag to the top of their team’s flag pole on the center of the lake dock, is deemed the winner of that running of the Games.

Camp Gray has gone National! In the May, 2015 issue of the Camp Business magazine, a story about Camp Gray’s CASSIDY GAMES was the cover story! Read all about it HERE.

The 2012 Cassidy Games

Due to lack of rain, a burn ban was in effect in Sauk County for much of the summer in 2012. Typically, the winning Chief employs the “cross-brand” to make official their team’s win on the Cassidy Tally Pole.  With no fire, we got creative and used a “cross-paint-brush” instead. Please email us with other memories you have from Cassidy 2012!

Mini Battles:
1. Trench Bowling
2. Panda Ball
3. Ducks on a Rock
