Pizza Sunday and 4th of July Conversations!

Monday, July 6th, 2020

How’s it hanging Folks!? It’s Mag-O-Llama, but you already knew that!

Today is a BEAUTIFUL day here at HVC, and us llamas in the llama pen are over-the-moon excited about the heat and sun hitting our fur!!

Yesterday, we had our 2nd pizza making night for the folks in the community, and let me tell you, it was a total blast! Nothing makes me feel better than helping out the community and cooking a few pies in the oven!

Because this weekend was a holiday weekend, we wanted to talk about the 4th of July and what that means to us during this time of social change and flux in our society. Click here to watch the PD’s and Peter talk about some racial justices we are facing in America today. They highlight ways in which we can further educate ourselves on these racial issues and become better allies to black and brown communities here in America. Each Sunday, we will continue to talk about the important issues that are happening here in our country.

I’m off to go take a dip in the lake with Otis!

Peace, Love, and Llama Hugs!

Keeping up with the Campdashians

Saturday, July 4th, 2020

Well hello there, folks! It’s me, Mag-O-Llama, and man oh man, have I been reminiscing on my beautiful weekend with the CAMPDASHIANS!!

If you have not watched the first episode of the Campdashians at camp, click the link here and watch as they explore HVC for the first time!

Although the Campdashian siblings had a rough couple of hours at camp due to a lack of air conditioning and smaller living quarters than the three were use to, they eventually learned the importance of being there for one another, digging deep into the powers of nature, and even strengthened their bond through the experience of being zen!

Johnathan took the longest to adjust to the beautiful and fresh Maine air, but after a long walk through the magical forest, his relationship with himself, and the relationship between Him and his sister, Cindy, blossomed!

Stay tuned for an important announcement coming Sunday, and go strut your stuff into the sunset you beautiful souls!!!

Peace, Love, and Llama Hugs!

Otis Is Running For Potus!!!

Thursday, July 2nd, 2020

Hello, who’s there? It’s me, Mag-O-Llama, and I’m talking about something hot off the press!!

Yesterday, we received breaking news that Otis is running for Potus 2020!! If you have not yet seen the announcement video, click the link here! Although he has not yet released a lot of details regarding his campaign, as a Llama here at HVC, I have many questions for Otis!!

What platform do you think Otis will run under? Will he be running as an anarchism platform? Maybe he will run as a libertarian or a socialist? Or will he run as a conservative republican? Whatever political party he chooses to run under, I still wonder what his main political points will be, and if he will have an opponent!

I’ve been asking around the animal barn and the Llama pen, and many of the animals here on camp have some opinions about what they would like to see in a candidate for the 2020 election. Most of the Llamas agree that they would like to stop paying tax on the hay, but according to the chickens, they don’t care all that much, because they don’t have to buy hay on a weekly basis and chicken food is not taxed.

However, Something that all of the animals can agree on is that they want more grass space for afternoon gazing. All of the animals have signed a petition that would move the grazing space to occupy all of Tipi hill and expand into the backyard. I think that if Otis backs up this petition, he might have a chance of seeing good polling numbers come August.

Furthermore, the mini horses would like free access to the lake once a week. They believe that there water source is not as plentiful as it could be, and would like to see change quickly. Jack, the donkey, would like to see free healthcare, as he wants to get contacts and braces, thus having more medical expenses than the other animals.

It seems like Otis will be up for the fight of his life, as all eyes will be watching him this summer to see what stances he will take regarding the issues above. Stay tuned for further election updates throughout the summer!

Peace, Love, and Llama hugs!

LET’S GET ARTSY!!

Wednesday, July 1st, 2020

Hiya Folks and Happy July 1st! It’s Mag-O-Llama and I’m back with your daily update!

Yesterday, one of our favorite counselors from last summer, Ella, made a video showing us how to make a DIY plant hanger! Click the link to see her awesome video and then attempt to do it at home, with your parents permission, of course! Tag us on Instagram or Facebook and show us your creations!

Ella’s video got me thinking, I sure do miss having art classes in the animal barn and Buckhorn. (for new campers, these are the buildings on camp that we have art classes in!) What are some of your favorite art classes here at camp? What projects would you like to see here at camp that you have not tried yet? From glass beads, art journaling, and screen printing, to tie dying and dark room photography, stained glass, and pottery!! There are so many ways to stay creative and artistic this summer.

Here are a few easy ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

1.) Make an art journal with old notebooks or paper you find around the house! This can be a great way to express your feelings and emotions through creative ways!

2.) Tie Dye at home with food coloring!

3.) Make friendship bracelets and send them to friends/cabin mates!

Have a great a wonderful day and get crafting!

Peace, Love, and Llama Hugs!
