What’s hanging HVC families?

Cabins have been all over camp today, as have I. Today’s breakfast was pancakes with blueberry sauce, a meal I wasn’t about to miss.

Afterwards, all of the cabins went on their own adventures for the day. I followed a PD up to their office to confirm rumors that they have a popcorn machine up there. Unfortunately, Pippin must have been wrong, because there was nothing poppin when I arrived.

However, I did come across the list of each cabins’ activities, and although I was in the mood for something salty, I was happy to discover the tea.

The list:

LCH: Created their own super hero capes, and worked on collage pieces for their cabin.

Avalon: Created a cabin sculpture out of clay, visited the camp store and the animals.

Wombles: Planted flower seeds, which will later go into flower boxes the cabin will build.

French 1/4: Made collages, Decorated wooden flowers to hang inside their cabin.

Loons: Created a cabin sculpture out of clay, went on an epic HVC scavenger hunt with GORP Odin.

Gimme Shelter: Created a cabin sculpture out of clay, went on an epic HVC scavenger hunt with GORP Odin.

Bermuda Triangle: Made custom cabin bunting out of fabric in our textile studio, and visited the camp store and the animals.

Paquatahnee: visited the camp store and the animals, had a swim in the pool.

Valhalla: Made their own fused-glass coasters, visited the camp store and the animals.

Camelot: Made their own fused-glass coasters and collages, had hang-out time in the backyard.

Forbidden Planet: Created a cabin sculpture from found materials at the End of the World.

Halley’s Comet: Worked together to build the tallest sculpture possible with rods of glass.

Shangrila: Yoga to start off the morning, and made their own fused-glass coasters in the afternoon.

Fiddler’s Green: Made custom cabin bunting out of fabric in our textile studio and then created their own cabin bunting.

Taj Mahal: Created their own cabin bunting, worked together to create a blown-glass piece for their cabin.

HV Adventures: Went for a morning swim and sauna at the lake, followed by prep and packing for their first trip.

HV Community: Went for a morning swim and sauna at the lake, followed by a hike to the Log Cabin, where they set intentions and goals for their month of community service work.

Each cabin also did something fun together as a group, spending time decorating their bunks, playing a bit of soccer or acting out skits in the Rec Hall. Towards the end of the day, campers relaxed with snack and yard games before camp meeting.

Just like the campers, I’m looking forward to the Staff Talent Show tonight and the start of classes tomorrow!

XOXO,

Gopher Girl
