Despite a rainy afternoon, our first full day of session three saw campers trying new activities, making new friends, and getting acclimated to summer camp. The first day of camp is spent typically learning cheers and doing team building activities in order to get cabins closer, and to be introduced to brother/sister villages. This session will be like no other, because it’s Harry Potter session! When campers arrived to the dining hall this past Sunday, they saw banners representing the four Hogwarts houses and the fireplace decorated like the great hall. Campers will be sorted into one of the four houses today, and from then on will have ways to earn house points for their house! We can’t wait to see what magic is in store for the rest of the session.
