Something Rotten and the Brumby Horse show!

Tuesday, August 17th, 2021

Howdy HVC!

It’s Mag-O-Llama, and I’m going to start off by saying, wow, It’s such a beautiful morning here at HVC. The sun is shining, there’s a slight breeze, and the temperature is absolutely spot on! I have quite a few things to update you on, so let’s just jump right on into it.

Yesterday morning the whole camp had the privilege of watching the Brumby Horse show! These campers have dedicated a huge portion of their to taking care of the beautiful horses, and prepping them for main camp riding lessons! If you look at the pictures below, you will see their wonderful closing performance. It was truly a sight to see!

After the fantabulous show, we headed over to the pool for some pool activities with the whole camp! After the fun, we proceeded to do a cabin clean and get ourselves ready to pack up our things for our  departure coming in a couple short days. (Sad, I know)

If you didn’t think the day could get any more exciting, Younger and middle half campers saw a really cool traveling natural history program from Chewonki! The older half campers were able to have some hang out time by the basketball court. Fun was definitely had by all!

To end out the night, we saw the musical, “Something Rotten!” The campers who participated completely blew us away, and got the standing ovation they truly deserved! For those of you who have never heard of “Something Rotten,” It’s a musical comedy that’s a mash-up of sixteenth-century Shakespeare and twenty-first-century Broadway. It was the perfect way to end the already perfect night. Look at the pictures below to see the fun!

Those are my updates for today! Check back in tomorrow morning to get our final updates before departure day!

Peace, Love, and Llama Hugs

White Books, Basketball, and Sharing Night!

Monday, August 16th, 2021

Good Afternoon HVC!

It’s your favorite Llama here with a few updates on what the campers were up to the past few days.

As classes came to a close yesterday, campers were able to watch the PD vs. Campers basketball game, and it sure was great! The campers really stole the game from start, and if I’m being 100% honest, the PD’s didn’t have a chance to begin with! We have some major basketball talent here at HVC, and they are not afraid to show it!

During the basketball game, campers were able to pick up their white books and started to exchange them with other campers around camp! It has been awesome to see the campers share their wonderful memories and start to think about staying in contact with the folks they have formed connections with this summer!

To make the night even better, the evening program was sharing night! If you look at the pictures below, you will see some super awesome clips of the performances. From rock band, dance classes, and hiking, to improv, fairy-houses and more, the campers were able to share what they have learned the past two weeks in their classes!

That’s all of my updates folks! With that said, I’m off to meet with the other Llama’s and grab some dinner!

Peace, Love, and Llama Hugs,

Saturday Night Alive: An Incomplete Reunion

Sunday, August 15th, 2021

Good Afternoon HVC!

It’s a breezy day here on camp and things are cooling down, literally, and figuratively! As we wrap up classes today and get ready for the last week of camp, I’m feeling very bittersweet.

Last night’s evening program was the Alive show, “Saturday Night Alive: An Incomplete Reunion!”

The Alive campers have been working so hard for the whole session to create, direct, cast, and preform in their own show! For most of these campers, it was their first time working together to create a production, and for some it was even their first time at HVC!

Most of the off-camp trips Alive took off camp this year was to help them better understand topics such as sight specific theatre, outdoor theatre, and the Alive campers even had a chance to meet a real actor and get tips from the professionals!

The show spoke on themes such as camp life, friendship, understanding, and of course, there was some amazing comedy thrown in. Needless to say, the show was amazing from start to finish and truly showcased the amazing talent that lies within the campers of this program! Check out the pictures from last night’s show, you won’t want to miss it!

That is all of the things on my list to share with you lovely folks reading at home!
Until next time.

Peace, Love, and Llama hugs,

Mag-O-Llama!

Stayin’ Cool for Electives!

Friday, August 13th, 2021

Good afternoon from HVC, Mag-O-Llama checking in!

The warm temps from yesterday continued today, but that didn’t stop us from having an amazing day of classes. Lots of folks got into the pool or went down the slip and slide during interest groups to stay cool! Check out the pictures below!

And last night’s evening program was a camp favorite: Electives! There were so many awesome activities to choose from, classics like capture the flag and s’mores making, and artsy activities like pressing flowers between glass, making beaded hemp bracelets, and splatter painting from the tipi zip line! There was also weird potion making (verrrry mysterious…), some quality time spent with the llamas, and a jam session in the HVC recording studio. A few campers made cupcakes and others headed up to the horse barn to braid the manes of a few ponies! It was a wonderful evening!

Meanwhile, our AWACs got a break from assisting in cabin life to take a dip in the ocean nearby, and our HV Alive crew continued prep for their upcoming show!

All in all, a fantastic day was had! Be sure to peep the photos of the day below.

Till next time, Mag-O-Llama
