A Summer with Frog and Toad (And Gopher Girl!)

Monday, August 15th, 2022

How’s it going, HVC families!

Just to give you an idea of how much is ahead of us, last night promos promoted not one, not two, not three but 26(!!!) upcoming events in the final days of the second session! Included were the Brumby show, sharing night, the musical, our last trip/lazy day, fair day, the dance, packing day, packing day jr., packing day jr. jr., pinegrove, the BIG luggage meeting, departure day, and so, so much more. We’ve got some very busy but super fun times ahead of us, even as classes have ended.

We had a spectacular night last night with so many talented sharing night acts! We had performances from modern dance, guitar, mountain biking, how to be a superhero, choreography, improv games, and even the swim team. The night ended with rock band and ukulele both jamming as the sun set! What a perfect final sharing night.

Before sharing night, Brumby shared their skills as well! Horses and their riders joined us for evening meeting and galloped up the hill as the camp watched on. I tried to befriend some of the horses, but they didn’t see me because I am so close to the ground 🙁

Today, our last lazy happened! Older half and Camelot went to go see Holes in Belfast, while younger half and Paquatahnee, Bermuda Triangle, Avalon, and Valhalla participated in gross day, which involved games such as condiment twister, shaving cream hairstyles, and human sundaes. Campers also started packing during rest period for “Packing Day Jr. Jr.” and had some fun in the pool!

Tonight, after a pizza dinner our stage in the rec hall will be graced with a performance of “A Year with Frog and Toad,” the musical! The musical cast and backstage ninjas are so excited to share what they have been working on for the past month. I personally think they should perform my personal twist “A Year with Frog, Toad, AND Gopher,” but alas the directors are totally strict with sticking with the original script.

I can’t wait for all that is ahead for these campers!
