Gooooooood morning, HVC! Hummingbird here with your 2nd 3rd day of classes update!! Last night we had a beautiful, fun, silly, wonderful evening program! We split up into three groups to play some wild games… let’s see what everyone got up to!

Down Under, LCH, French Quarter, Avalon, Paquatahnee, and Loons played Candy Crush (Reloaded). Why was it reloaded? Well in all Candy Crushes past, Grandma Nut and Willy Wonka have been pitted against each other, and our AWAC Oompa Loompas have worked diligently to thwart Grandma Nut’s efforts to take back her candy with the help of the campers. But this summer something changed. Last night, Grandma Nut and Willy Wonka teamed up to take the candy for themselves and the Oompa Loompas were TIRED of working for such unethical candy mongers. They enlisted some of our campers’ help to overthrow Willy and Grandma, and THEY SUCCEEDED!! They were of course rewarded with bags of candy. Congratulations, campers! Meanwhile in Middle Half….

Gimme Shelter, Wombles, Fiddlers Green, Camelot, Haley’s Comet, and Atlantis participated in a brand new evening program, Candy Chemistry!! A Mad Scientist and her trusty assistant, Egg, created a new, unstable molecule that needed to be replicated in order to create a new and never-before-attempted candy bar that would CHANGE THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT!! Cabins raced through four challenges to collect the right amount of atoms needed to recreate the structure! The challenges required campers to use strategy, teamwork, communication, and agility, and every single cabin successfully recreated the unstable molecule, stabilized it, and helped our Mad Scientist and Egg build their life altering candy bar! Cabins were of course rewarded with bags of candy. Meanwhile in older half….

Treasure Island, Forbidden Planet, Wabanaki, Valhalla, Shangri-La, and Taj Mahal jammed out to some music on the walk up to hang out with Community for the evening! They played some games, they roasted some marshmallows, they chatted about how wonderful it is to be a teen at camp, and they learned about how they can stay connected to HVC in summers to come!! And they were, of course, rewarded for being teens with bags of candy!

We all ate a lot a lot of candy…. did I mention the CANDY?? I’m off to scavenge for some wrappers to build my nest!

Crinkle crinkle,
Hummingbird
