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 | Tribe Color Night - Get a bonus 5,000 points for every person wearing your tribe's color
June 14 | Bring A Friend Night - 40,000 points for bringing a new Tribe Wars member
June 21 | VBS Week - 2,000 points for every day a tribe member serves at VBS
June 28 | Bring A Friend Night - 40,000 points for bringing a new Tribe Wars member
July 19 | Tribe Color Night - Get a bonus 5,000 points for every person wearing your tribe's color
