Hard working Wednesday was everything you think it was and the campers at Royal Oak Middle School proved that they were equal to the tasks at hand. “Our Blitz isn’t easy,” Says Camp Commissioner Dan Thomas, “I worked these kids out hard and they didn’t quit.”
The Blitz is a 12-minute conditioning program that emulates a pre-season Pistons workout. It includes many stationary conditioning drills such as push-ups, planks and the infamous “6-inches.” “I think the temerature in the gym went up 15 degrees in the final 15 minutes of camp,” said Camp Director Geo Thomas, “Coach Dan did not hold back and the kids didn’t quit.”
Those who were awarded the hardest workers were: Davis Van Every, Ethan Watkins, Lexi Lang, Liam Dalton, Taylor Vance, and Jess Dillon.
