We said goodbye to many of our friends, campers and counselors, this morning, and greeted the new group who arrived just in time for lunch. One group went horseback riding, and another made ice cream with Vicky. Peter provides the stability while the others crank away. And yes, they all washed their hands. It turned

So, we had standing room only, and it was a hot and enthusiastic crowd. We had some surprise additions to the script, but that’s what makes it fun. It’s too difficult to explain, so go rent Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and you’ll get the general idea. Ours was better. The pictures are in no

Today, we had play practice, of course, and we spent the afternoon with the Martha’s Vineyard Rod and Gun Club fishing and wearing our new spiffy hats. Thank you for another fun afternoon. Miah wants a big one. Not sure if it’s a fish or a hug. Don’t know why, but we were told to

After play practice and before the beach, we squeezed in a parade. Along with the Oak Bluffs Polar Bear Club, we greeted Made in the Shade at the ferry, and marched with them up Circuit Ave to the Tabernacle. We dressed up for the occasion. We like dressing up. And dancing. And marching. Em has

This morning was dedicated to the play. We perfected our lines, dance moves and costumes. After lunch, of course we hung at the beach. But then, we took our dinner to O.B. and some of us went fishing on the Skipper. We love the Skipper. We cranked up the music, threw some lines in the

So, our focus is still on having fun, but in a dramatic sort of way. We practiced our music, lines and made props this morning. We even hung posters downtown. We are professionals. A few of the campers went to the gym. And it was a beautiful afternoon at the beach. Allison and Kirk practice

This morning was our usual chaotic changeover, where we played the “Where’s the Luggage?” and “When’s the Ferry?” games. We won both. And just to make things even more fun, we sent some campers horseback riding. So we added “Who’s on What List?” and we still did fine. Almost all the campers won “Catch the

We filled our day with exciting activities.  We split the group and played a rip snorting game of Bingo and met Christine from the Audubon Society who brought some friends to visit. Skip’s hoping the prize is a Pepsi. (It’s not) This guy’s over 40. Looks good for his age. Hey, where’d he go? And

On Saturday morning the entire camp descended upon Vineyard Haven to join the Where’s Waldo contest. They had to visit 15 stores in town and find that elusive striped guy. Some of us got distracted in the ice cream shop and found other things instead. I spy a Waldo! Hannah spies a ticket. I spy
