The summer heat has us thinking of ways to cool off while still having fun in the sun. Luckily for us, we’ve got an adult summer camp on a lake coming up in Marble Falls, TX and we can’t wait to try everything.  Here are the top 5 reasons why you should be getting a spot in the bunkhouse and joining us in Texas this September:
 
1. The jam packed activity line-up to suite your every whim
 
WAKA Summer Camp is a perfect balance of all of your favorite things. Start the day in the lake, end your day in the pool. Take it back to your childhood with capture the flag, archery, arts and crafts, and a team talent show.  Then feast on s’mores, and dance the night away under the stars.

Over the weekend in Jacksonville, WAKA Kickball & Social Sports hosted the Southeast Regional Kickball Tournament with more than a dozen WAKA teams from around Florida and Georgia.
 
Along with a full day of kickball games, attendees had the chance to enjoy a tournament after-party at the Suite Lounge and a Sunday Funday Bar Crawl. The four semifinalists qualified to receive an invitation to the Founders Cup World Kickball Championship in Las Vegas on October 2016.

We love cute hats and side ponys during the summer — anything that keeps our hair back while still adding a bit of style. From getting the perfect tournament braids, to keeping sweat out our eyes while we sprint to first base, here’s how we’re getting our hair gameday ready during hot summer months:

Last weekend, we headed to California for a non-stop, action-packed, summer camp adventure with more than 300 WAKA people.
 
Located at the Canyon Creek Campground in the middle of the Castaic Mountains near Los Angeles, the camp is the perfect escape from the stresses of everyday life.
 
With activities like color wars, ropes course, dizzy bat races, slip n slide kickball, archery, kick golf, pool parties, and an electric forest DJ set—it’s a weekend getaway designed to help campers kick back and vibe the day away. To say it’s one of the more magical weekends of the year would be an understatement, but there really is no other way to describe and do it justice. Good thing pictures speak a thousand words…

Check out these photos from the weekend and join us at WAKA Summer Camp in Virginia and Texas

We’re always on the look out for inspiring stories from the WAKA community and this week we have a big milestone to celebrate!  

On June 6th in Hollywood, California, Padraic "Paddy" C. played in his 1000th kickball game. No, not one hundred… one thousand!


 
ONE THOUSAND KICKBALL GAMES. The fact that he even kept track is an achievement in of itself.  
 
One thousand kickball games is a commitment to the game and the sport itself - to play fairly, to play hard, and to display great sportsmanship.
