Challengers of HOGWARTS - KaMp mUgGleS Summer 2014

Sunday, April 27, 2014

For this week's inter-house game in our Hogwarts challenge we were asked to come up with a blog with our ideas for a good summer KaMp mUgGleS. I did a bit of research on summer camps and here is what I learned.

First I went back to some memories of my own summer camp days.



That's me third row seated, third from right. This camp had sailing and kayaking and canoeing and dancing and tennis I saw from the stickers on my certificate but I don't remember much. I preferred the Y girl's camp I went to for many years. My nickname the first year was Mushroom (mushroom cut) and then in subsequent years I became part of a group of friends and my name was always Jelly Bean. Of course our camp we will need nicknames, sort of like usernames but more user-friendly.

The following are images from Business Insider of 18 Outrageously Expensive Summer Camps. These camps cost over $10,000 a summer.











We would have campfires too, but we may not be able to afford as much wood.



We'd have tug of war, too, but the uniforms probably aren't in Hogwart's budget. Our tug of war might look more like this -



We would have the face painting though, for our arts & crafts class (my suggestion, as I can't afford canvases)




We'd have theatre



And cookouts for Culinary Class



And music



And we'd have dancing



From the air our campsite would look like this:



But I wouldn't forget our dear Writing Professor, my Hufflepuff sister from New Zealand. It will be winter during our summertime for her. I did my research though, and found there is no challenge unsurmountable.




Are you looking forward to the summer? Maybe you would like to join in the fun at KaMp mUgGleS with us!

    Emmy this sounds so fun!!! When we lived in N. Me. My DH was scoutmaster and we had a Winterama, and the scoutmasters and boys had to build igloos, and we slept in them!! It was so much fun, once my feet got warm I was warm and snug in that igloo, wish it could find pictures!!

And we will have Misch... Er no studying right!! emoticon

    Oh, Emmy, that new lay-out for the SP team pages ... thank goodness they set up the team blogs or I would've missed this!! THIS IS SOOO *F*U*N* I love your pictures and how you took us through a lot of things I'd forgotten about camping ... that's me in the moustache. hahahahaha!! Anyway, too precious and how thoughtful you are to remember our dear Prof Penelope down under in her igloo. emoticon I see she's very grateful for your thoughtfulness. LOL!! Well, I think with you helping to design our camp, we're in for an AMAZINGLY MEMORABLE time!! Thank you for sharing!! I also *see* a very old and dear friend *here* too. She would love Hogwarts, fer' sher' n' fer' certain!! Oh, yes, we must have nicknames!! Do we pick them randomly or are we 'christened' with them? hahaha!! I'm sooo excited to get a nickname!! See you at KaMp!!

    Thank you of thinking of me, Emmy. I think I'd be quite snug in that - and we are having snow on high country as I write!
I love your ideas and admire your research. I think you should suggest a tug-of-war on our KaMp thread because we're planning a virtual obstacle course and I could see that fitting in - with bands or some similar activity! emoticon Penny Hufflepuff

    I love your Kamp! I'm looking forward to our summer away from Hogwarts, to get a bit of rest, relaxation and fun in. And it's gonna be a whole lot less than $10,000!
