Remember the Kids Sea Camp Turkey Bowl in 2013
It started as a dream . . . a Kids Sea Camp Turkey Bowl It started as a crazy idea. Let’s play some football on Thanksgiving in St. Vincent at the lush Buccament Bay resort. We only had a couple of problems:
- It’s a soccer island.
- There’s no American football field.
- There’s was no American football.
- There are no officials
- It’s way too hot, normally
- It rains a lot
- Americans can be too competitive
- Parents can be an issue
- Some Americans have never played football
- Everyone wins at Kids Sea Camp. (Yes this can be a problem for Americans.)
We so adapted to conditions is it were and used a soccer field with a rugby ball and a new Kids Sea Camp tradition was born. We played in the afternoon before the feast at Buccament Bay Resort. There were mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, and I think a couple of grandfathers running up and down that super-wide soccer field that beautiful Caribbean afternoon. We played with passion and smiles until the mountains of the island turned dark.
I, for one, am looking forward to the 2nd annual KSC Turkey Bowl this year. We have T-shirts for the event and Margo has promised to do some video. Which I planned to cut up and make into a keepsake video.
I’m looking forward to next year’s Kids Sea Camp Turkey Bowl in St. Lucia at Anse Chastanet. Each year of the wonderful game will only get better and better.
I’m hoping that this can become a KSC tradition that families will enjoy every Thanksgiving at Kids Sea Camp.
