The Maroon Magical Beasts had a great day today! We were up and moving all day! First we went to outdoor skills and made some s’mores, then we went to crafts and made dragon eggs! After lunch, we went to science and made a potion to confuse trolls, then we went to songs and games and played quidditch! We finished off our day by relaxing at our unit and getting to know each other better! We’re all excited to come back tomorrow! Please remember to bring a t-shirt for tie-dyeing tomorrow!

The Purple Pandas had an amazing second day at camp! We made magic wands out of pretzels and frosting, started swaps for Friday’s swap meet. We had fun playing games and singing songs this morning and had fun on a hike in nature. We are super excited for day 3 of camp! Please remember to send a plain white t-shirt if you have not already. We will be tie-dyeing on Thursday.

We started our day by decorating our biffys with colored pictures and spray chalk. Then, we embarked on our watermelon hike and collected our eggs. When we finished our watermelon, we worked on our swaps for Friday. After lunch, we started our special Hogwart’s necklaces and played Harry Potter themed bingo.

Pixies

The Pixies had a lot of fun today! They went to the Nature station, learned how to mix paint to create new colors, and went on a hike to find Scabbers the rat. After finding him, they went to headquarters to receive a jelly bean treat! They also made a super cool fizzy potion with sherbet and 7-up. They ended the day with a water melon craft and making some swaps. It was a great day!

The Rangers

The boys had a super fun day today, and a very sweaty day. We played Capture the Flag and Quidditch. Made S’mores and golden eggs. We found a loose Scabbers tucked under our bags during science where we made a royal mess.

Catapults

We had a very physical day! We started our day with Potions where we heard a mandrake scream and did so many more cool activities. Next, we found many different eggs, rescued our teens from the dragon, and discovered our own baby dragon. Next, we relaxed with our owl craft and Arts and Craft where we made our own eggs! It was such a great day!

Tornadoes 1

We had an action-packed day…we made edible wands, tie-dyed shirts, decorated our biffys with beautiful phoenixes, went to potions (where we made petrified mandrake screams and transfigured sugar into rocks!), took a nature hike to search for horcruxes, learned campfire safety, and conjured up some s’mores using the new wands we created. Please don’t forget to send empty plastic water (or soda) bottles tomorrow, because we are going to make squirt bottles for water fun!

Today the Purple-Pygmy-Puffs did a lot of exciting things. We made Biffy-sniffers for the bathroom, zipped across the zip line, and even ate ice cream! We walked to the tornado shelter, so we know where to go for emergencies. It was the most fun day!

Tornadoes 3

Today the Fizzing Whizbees headed to Challenge Course to do the ziplines! They made awesome solar ovens to prepare for cooking something yummy later this week! The Whizbees also got their hands dirty at tye dye! Overall the Fizzing Whizbees had an awesome day!

Bats 1

We started our day by doing the morning flag! We decorated our biffys with chalk and construction paper. Then, during Crafts, we started making golden dragon eggs! During Science we made potions, and learned about doxy screams and Confundus potions. In the afternoon, we made glitter potion necklaces and had some refreshing ice cream! It was a fun and exciting day for Bats 1!

Bats 2

Right after flag, we had Songs and Games. The girls learned some new tunes and played Quidditch. After that we went to go make slime with Pepper, our OWL. The girls got to choose their color, and take it home! Then we had Science. The campers did super cool activities with the Potions professors, some involved using Oobleck! We had a nice lunch at our Unit Home and then did crafts at Firefly Lodge where they made Golden Eggs. To end our day, we did our Watermelon Hike. We had a great day!
