Bug Dancing the Night Away

Sunday, July 3rd, 2022

How’s it hanging HVC Families,

Campers enjoyed yet another exciting day of classes and interest groups (which included painting puddles with Meg and AWAC Cece!) yesterday before heading to our bug-themed dance for Evening Program.

When the clock “ticked” 6:30, campers headed to the Rec Hall field to enjoy dancing in the Cicada Circle, featuring “Fireflies” by Owl City as the opening tune.

In addition, campers got their face painted like bugs, built antennae out of craft supplies, and enjoyed creepy crawly tractor rides from counselor, Casey.

Per multiple camper requests, as well as my own, the DJ was convinced to “Rick Roll” the crowd by playing Rick Astely’s “Never Gonna Give You Up.”

As always, the bug dance ended with Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” after chants for “one more song.”

At the conclusion, I watched each of the campers buzz their way back to their cabins to get ready for tomorrow’s Lazy Day AND everybody’s favorite day of the week: Bagel Sunday.

Tomorrow, campers will get to see multiple Chewonki animal presentations, and get to dance to the Half Moon Jug Band!

In the meantime, I’ll be resting up. My aging gopher joints are indeed go(pher)ing, and I”m a little sore from showing off my worm dance from last night.

More details tomorrow!
