A Fantastic Day of Mr. Fox and Grossness!

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

Go0o0od morning, everyone. Alleycat here with zee Hidden Valley Camp latest scoop.

I’m pleased to report that it did end up being a gross day indeed! Gross Day? In the rain?! Sure! Why not! All the usual nastiness ensued: gnarly shaving cream hair-dos, a disgusting obstacle course, a slimy dunk-tank, slip-n-slide, condiment Twister.. and more! I mustn’t forget to mention the tranquility area for those that getting dirty doesn’t precisely strike a chord with. Gross Day is always something special to behold, whether participating in it or just observing. Everyone went wild.

Once the older half returned from their stellar roller-skating trip they got the special opportunity to sit in the rec hall and watch the mega-classic Back to the Future part 1!

Everyone trekked back to their cabins after these activities for a bit of an extreme cabin clean and rainy day rest session.

On the menu for dinner was a Mexican feast! Soft and hard shell tacos, homemade guacamole, salsa, rice, and a cinnamon chocolate brownie that was to die for.

After dinner, it was back to the rec hall for the marvelous tale Fantastic Mr Fox! Since the cast members of the play did not receive their script until very late, they took it upon themselves to read the children’s story and adapt it for the stage, chapter by chapter. The result was truly hilarious with some zany details such as an angsty teenager fox, water guns, and a pre-quel scene written by a camper. Everyone did an amazing job.

AND THEN, OH AND THEN… there was a surprise dance! And we boogied with Bohemian Rhapsody to end the evening.

Camp will have the privilege to watch another camper performance tonight… the musical Beauty and the Beast! It’s one of my favorite stories and I know there are others just as excited as I am! Stay tuned for updates on that performance tomorrow.

Until then, check out  some awesome photographs!

P.S. The weather guy predicted a 10/10 today after the schvitzy day we had yesterday… and so far, it looks like an 11. As Peter said this morning, if we had so much fun yesterday… today better watch out!

Warmly,
Alleycat
