One of the finest memories I have of Camp Deerwoode is the Sunday Decathalon. Getting up at dawn for a one mile run with Flatt and Skruggs music playing on the loudspeaker; competing all day long in 10 events; ending with the swim event and the campfire that night; and who could forget the Sunday doughnuts and applesauce breakfast, followed by the motivational Hank Lewis speech – “The Cream Shall Rise to the Top of the Milk!”
