Hi friends! Olive Oyl here making another guest appearance on this cozy PJ Day.
First off, we had an AWESOME night last night with Sharing Night. We got to see all that our classes have been up to the past two weeks. We heard from the Musical, which is School of Rock, with “You’re in the Band,” we also got a wonderful mix of music in with traditional African dance, K-Pop, and hip-hop. And we got our musical side satisfied with a beautiful arrangement of the Farthest Field in A Capella, plus guitar and ukulele classes. Aaaaand! Before this all even happened, we rocked out after lunch with Rock Band in the Gazebo.
We also saw Yoga class and some of their favorite poses, we heard from What is This Class? with an answer to their titular question, which was in fact just another question. They will remain ever-elusive. We also got some laughs in with improv class and dramatic storytelling, where campers shared stories from their lives ranging from a disastrous self-haircut to the experience of being adopted. All in all, it was a great night featuring a wide range of different acts showcasing the range and depth of our campers! Way to go!
After all our hard work these past two weeks, we got a nice little sleep-in this morning and the comfy treat of being in our pajamas all day! It’s a little cold and schvitzy today, the perfect weather for some PJs and cuddling up next to our cabin-mates. After camp meeting this morning we all gathered at the pool for some laid back pool activities, featuring friendship bracelets, guitar, capture the flag, and the wonderfully steamy sauna going. And of course, we welcome all of our new two-weekers and signed up for our next round of classes, got a free book, and an HVC t-shirt! What a morning! We then had a nice relaxing cabin clean and rest period before heading off to our cabin day activities!
Lower Carriage House and Loons did an egg drop, Avalon and French Quarter got to do a workshop with the Half Moon Jug Band, Gimme Shelter baked cookies and played games, Atlantis played ropes games on the Soccer Field, Treasure Island did the Tipi Zip line, and Forbidden Planet did glass beads and glass blowing.
The Burrow had a dance party at the Gazebo, Down Under did a scavenger hunt and decorated their cabin, Wombles got to work in the pottery studio, Paquatahnee also did a scavenger hunt and played welcome games with their new campers, Wabanaki did tie-dye, Shangri-La made t-shirts and had a dance party, Camelot had a spa day, Fiddler’s Green played Capture the Flag, Valhalla did the color personality test and made pet rocks, Haley’s Comet groomed horses, and Taj Mahal had a cabin party.
Oh boy, how fun! Right now, we’re all gathered in the Rec Hall for part two of sharing night, which is watching all the videos that campers made in video classes! We’ll soon gather for evening meeting before a delicious dinner of Mexican food. And then off to an enjoyable evening of music with the Half Moon Jug Band. We can’t wait!
Well, that’s all for now folks, lots of pictures so please enjoy!
