Woah, it’s the last day already?!? Today was awesome! We watched Stitch compete in the MultiWizard Tournament. She did phenomenal naming all of us and under a minute! She also was able to spell “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”. She only struggled on the trivia, but she gave her best effort! Next, we had lunch and swapped our Thestrial horseshoes. We then dressed up for the Yule Ball with our trash bag dresses and nicest outfits. It was a blast! We finished our day singing “Linger” and saying goodbye to all the new friends we have met. Thanks Camp Crossroads for a great week!

We had an amazing last day of camp! We started off the day cheering for Indie in the Multi-Wizard tournament, and she won! So we all got keys as prizes. Then we ate lunch and swapped our swaps with the other campers, made bead bracelets with Grizzly, did some magical science experiments, danced with balloons, drank some butterbeer at the Yule Ball, and played a few final games (including remembering everyone’s names!) with our unit. It was such a fun week and we can’t wait to come back again next year!

The last day wow! This week went by so fast with all the magical activities we did. We ended the week with the Multi-Wizard Tournament and the Yule Ball. We couldn’t have gone too long without eating, so we made fudge in a bag, solar oven nachos, and a love potion drink in science. Everyone had an amazing week and can’t wait to see everyone back again next year!

Today in Tornados 3 we cheered for Nike in the multi wizard tournament, then we ate lunch and swapped the swaps we made with the other campers. After that we performed our own personal skits in the theater for our unit. While waiting for the yule ball to start we played water games at Forest Home and when the time struck, we headed to the Yule ball to dance and play in the dark. Then we cleaned up the unit and attended the closing flag ceremony and said goodbye to all our new friends. It was an amazing week, and we can’t wait for next year.

For our last day we started off by watching our multi wizard champions compete to win. Then we spent some time meeting everyone at the flag circle and trading our own swaps with each other. Finally we ended our day with a big dance party at the Yule ball with fun loud songs and some homemade butter beer! Today was our final hurrah and can’t wait for next year.

The Kelpies cheered loudly at the Multi Wizard Tournament!!! It was a great mix of HP trivia, fun challenges and camp spirit. We showed off our SWAPs at the camp wide SWAP exchange and then got to to show off our dance moves at the Yule ball where we partied with butterbeer and a DJ! We cleaned up our Unit Home and received our Camp Crossroads 2019 Patch and Unit photo at the closing flag ceremony!! It was a great week and we cant wait for next year!!

Bats 3

Bats 3 had a fantastic last day! We competed in the Multi-Wizard tournament and traded swaps with the other wonderful units! Then we danced with our friends at the Yule Ball! It was hot today and we made sure to cool down with some butterbeer at the dance! To finish off our week we did the closing flag ceremony! We had a magical week this week and are already ready for next summer at Crossroads!


Sunrays 1

The last day of camp was great for the Sunrays! The Purple Pandas cheered one of our teen staff members on for the multi-wizard tournament and then swapped our SWAPS we’ve been making throughout the week. After that, they had a great time at the Yule Ball and drank some butterbeer and danced to the DJ’s music. The Sunrays then did some team building obstacles in the Challenge Course. We had such a fun week with your children and we hope to see everyone next year!

Sunrays 2

The Sunrays had a fantastic final day at camp! They enjoyed the multi-wizard tournament and cheered on their champion, Porcelain! They then swapped with other campers and made sure to give everyone who wanted to swap a chance to do so. Then they got the chance to enter the enchanted Yule Ball where they listened to a magical DJ and drank butterbeer! Finally they made magical slime and potted some mandrakes! It was the most magical day at camp, and everyone had an amazing time!


The Rangers had an amazing day at camp. We started the morning cheering for our Multi-Wizard Champion, our teen, Thumper. She tied for 1st place and we won chocolate frogs for all the boys. We swapped our thestral skins with the girls. We trekked to our campsite and cleaned up, being responsible campers. The boys danced their hearts out at the Yule Ball and guzzled some good Butterbeer. We finished our day with a shaving cream battle, the losers being all white with guck. To clean off our only option was to swing across the Peanut Butter Pit. We got muddy and dirty but had an amazing time. Thank you so much parents for volunteering, we greatly appreciate it. Hope to see all of these great boys next year!!


The last day at camp was a blast for the Pixies! They made bubble art, popped some other bubbles, watched the counselors participate in the Multi-Wizard Tournament, and went to the swap meet. They got lots of new swaps (including some candy) and had a great time meeting new friends. Afterwards, they went to the Yule Ball to dance and drink butter beer! Finally, they made balloon owls which were so much fun, although the sharpies got a little messy. The staff has had an awesome time getting to know these boys this year, and we hope to see them again in 2020!!
