Tribal Spirit, Tribal PrideStrong Rock. On the first night of camp each new camper participates in our Tribal Selection Ceremony where they will be inducted into one of two tribes, the Waya or the Awahili. Campers remain a part of their tribes throughout successive camp years.
"Waya" is Cherokee for "wolf," and is represented by the color red. The Awahili Tribe is represented by the eagle and the color blue. Tribal songs, cheers, and chants are always a part of nightly competitions. Long standing cheers are a part of the tribal tradition at Strong Rock, however each summer campers and staff work together to create new cheers in hopes of boosting their tribe to a victory. Before each competition tribes are given an opportunity to face off and show their tribal pride as they prepare to battle it out on the field.
