Hello Kittens! Cat Nap here to update you on today’s Fair Day festivities! Before Fair Day, all of camp gathered at Deer Meadows to watch the Brumby Horse Show! The Brumby Horse Show is a performance by the campers in the “Brumby” program. During this show campers get to show the rest of camp the hard work they’ve put into horseback riding during the past 3 weeks. Humming Bird and I were amazed by how talented all the riders were. Jumping, acrobatics, and tricks! Oh my!
After the Brumby Horse Show it was finally time for Fair Day! Humming Bird and I stuffed our faces with fried dough thanks to Forbidden Planet, ice cream with Wabanaki, and grabbed some pretzels from the Awacs! The music was bumping thanks to Deer Meadows, faces were fun and colorful because of Camelot’s brilliant face painting skills, and everyone was staying cool in the hot weather at Chateau Fiasco’s Slip n’ Slide!
Unfortunately the fair had to come to a close, but the fun wasn’t over yet! After the fair, camp gathered in the Rec Hall to relive some of our favorite memories thanks to Eden’s amazing slideshow! Campers got to see pictures from this past month’s events, what some of their counselors looked like as campers at HVC, and even what camp looks like in the winter!
Tonight we put a spin on our usual camp meeting by adding two wheel of misfortune prizes! At evening meeting tonight, Gimme Shelter and Fiddler’s Green collected on their prizes! Throughout the mayhem of the Wheel, each cabin receives one “prize”-an offer put forth by another counselor. Wheel prizes range from ice bucket dumps to good night songs, and tonight’s meeting was graced by two show-stealing prizes. Fiddler’s Green collected on a camp classic: pieing a counselor in the face! Gimme Shelter won a prize a bit more out of the box…they got to blend a smoothie made of anything (edible) they could imagine, and watch one of our counselors drink it in front of the entire camp! Sarah (the lucky recipient of the gross smoothie) took the clam juice-garbanzo bean-hot sauce and more mixture in stride!
Tonight’s evening program was the Rock Band Concert and Dance! While siting outside at the Rec Hall Stage, campers got to listen to their fellow campers rock out to some of their favorite songs! Humming Bird and I loved that the campers in Rock Band combined their individual talents to create one unbelievable sound! After the Rock Bands performed, the dance began! Humming Bird and I put our dancing shoes on and danced the night away with the rest of camp! After today’s festivities, I’m going to need a long cat nap….hehehe
Have a purr-fect evening!
