What is "Tribe Wars"?
We are glad you asked! Tribe Wars is a summer-long competition-based outreach program where students compete in various contests and gain points that add up every week. This is a great way to connect with other students throughout the summer. Every tribe will have two adult tribe leaders who will make sure you stay in the loop with everything going on at that week's tribe war. The winning tribe at the end of the summer will win a prize that will be well worth all their hard work.

What is a competition-based program without points? This isn’t Upward Soccer where you aren’t supposed to be keeping score, but secretly all the dads really are anyway. This is a competition. Winners win. Everyone else loses.
Seriously though, we will award super HUGE points during Tribes. First, it’s just ridiculous and we don’t want people to get so caught up in the competition that they don’t enjoy themselves. Secondly, the race to be the first team to a million points sounds pretty fun in itself.
Here is the weekly point system for this year:
Tribe Attendance: 10,000 points for every tribe member present
New Tribe Member: 20,000 points if you bring a friend who has not attended Tribe Wars
Competitions: 50,000 (1st place) | 25,000 (2nd place) | 10,000 (3rd place)| 5,000 (4th place)
Social Media: 1,000 points for every picture you post on Instagram using the #SummitTribes
Throughout the summer, we will also have days that have special point incentives:
May 31 | 5,000 tribe color night
June 07 | 40,000 new tribe member
July 05 | 5,000 points for dressing up in red, white, and blue
July 26 | 10,000 points for parents in attendance
August 02 | 40,000 new tribe member
