THE BASKETBALL GAME AND WHEEL PRIZES AND SHARING NIGHT!!

Monday, August 12th, 2019

Hellooooo hello, HVC! Hummingbird here! I am just buzzing from everything that’s been going on here! Yesterday during interest groups was the CAMPER/COUNSELOR BASKETBALL GAME!! The competition was fierce and the counselors came out in full force but the campers pulled through and really showed off their stuff!! They won, 26 to 20! They even got to dump water on their coaches’ heads!! Congratulations, camper team! Check out pictures of the game below 🙂 After interest groups we gathered for camp meeting, with some special additions… Our class Hydration Nation gave a presentation (hehehe -ation -ation -ation!) to teach the rest of camp about the importance of hydrating! AND The Burrow got to cash in on their Wheel of Misfortune prize! Danica let them cover her in honey and stick marshmallows to her! Check out pictures! You’ll also see some bonus pictures of the Skateboarding class’s trip to the Belfast skate park… and ICE CREAM!

And that’s not all the fun that happened yesterday…. after our yummy dinner we gathered at the rec hall for SHARING NIGHT!! Campers showed off everything they’ve been working on for the last two weeks. There were so many amazing acts, ranging from how to be a robot to dance like nobody’s watching (an epic lip sync performance!!); from jazz dance to a rap mixtape class! The acts were amazing, and despite how varied they were, they all demonstrated one thing: campers have worked HARD this session to hone their skills and get ready to share their talents with their friends! What a wonderful end to a wonderful last day of classes! Check out pictures! Now onward to today…

Today is our last trip/lazy day of the session! The younger half went off to glow bowling this morning and had a great time! They glowed, they bowled, they danced, they ate french fries! It was marvelous! Meanwhile the older half stayed on camp for Self Care Day! You know, camp is just so stressful, especially in these final days. Sometimes we really need to take a few hours for ourselves. And that’s exactly what the older half did today! We had Orbeez (these super satisfying balls that grow in water and are mega fun to play with!) and infused water making, animal therapy, sudoku and other puzzles, yoga and meditation, stress balls, and running and screaming! It was a great, relaxing, self-care filled day! We’ll have pictures of it for you tomorrow!!

Tonight is the MUSICAL!! Campers have been working hard for four weeks to put together this session’s production of The Addams Family (*snap snap*)!! We can’t wait to see all their hard work pay off this evening, and we super DUPER can’t wait to show you the pictures tomorrow!! So stay tuned!!

TOMORROW IS FAIR DAY!! WE CAN’T WAIT FOR ALL OF IT OMG STAY TUNED IT’S GONNA BE EPIC!!

I’m off to– er– check on the fried dough… for tomorrow….. 😉

Always hungry,
Hummingbird
