Today the Light Blue Thestrals had an awesome day at camp! We were sorted into our houses to make sure we took turns completing what it takes to keep our unit home nice and clean. We had tie dye, which was super fun, but so messy! Don’t forget to go swimming! Then we went to songs and games and sang our little hearts out and played Quidditch. Finally, we created wands and our own spell books!

The Rangers biffies have been attacked by the neighboring mischievous Fizzings Whizbees. We had such a fun day today! We played a mighty game of capture the flag, with many jailbreaks. We had ice cream, which was according to some - the highlight of their lives. Tie-Dye was a success, although more dye ended up on their hands and the table than their shirt. We finished the day with a group game, and carefully discussed and planned closing cheer. It was a good day!
