Greetings and salutations, folks! Hummingbird here with all your updates! Last night was a doozy… we had not one, not two, but THREE evening programs at once!! Can you believe?!?! Let’s take a look!

Loons, Avalon, Down Under, French Quarter, and Wombles all played Candy Crush! They had to run run run around camp to gather up Grandma Nut’s candy that was stolen by the vicious Willy Wonka and his Oompa Loompas! The Oompa Loompas were trying to sabotage our cabin teams, but of course, our strong, cunning campers outwitted them and saved the day for Grandma Nut’s little candy shop!

Meanwhile….. Gimme Shelter, Bermuda Triangle, Paquatahnee, The Burrow, Shangri-La, Wabanaki, LCH, Valhalla, and Fiddlers Green played Candy Chemistry!! A candy scientist needed campers’ help to create a brand new candy molecule. Campers had to use teamwork, strategy, memory, and communication to complete challenges around camp. They were rewarded for their work with the different atoms of the molecule, which they used to replicate the original molecule and create more candy!!

Meanwhile meanwhile…… Taj Mahal, Camelot, Forbidden Planet and Haley’s Comet walked up to Blodgett (our off-the-grid house about a mile off camp, where the Apprentices live without electricity!) to hang with the Apprentices and talk about bein’ teens at the Teen Party!! They ate ice cream, they learned about life up the road, and they took the evening to think about the ways they can stay involved at camp after this summer!

The night was so lovely and fun, enjoy the pictures! Meanwhile meanwhile meanwhile……. I’m off to sneak some leftover teen ice cream!

Always hungry,
