The End of Camp



Harry Potter Camp has been over for a few weeks now, and I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who attended camp and thus made it happen, and especially all the helpers who volunteered their time and effort to make both sessions of camp such spectacular successes! From hand-decorating wands for each kid to making candy to sell at Honeydukes to playing Quidditch with us rain or shine, you rocked! And thank you of course to our awesome counselors and assistant counselors who were there nearly every day of camp: Sam, Gloria, Julia, Linnea W., Nathan, Linnea D., Maria, and Andrew. Also a special shout-out to my co-planner and director Georgia!!!

Anyway, stay tuned for information about the possibilities of a camp next year!
