Get ready for an epic post with a gajillion photos, because we had an extra-special, extra-long day! We got up way earlier than usual so we could make it to the starting line of the Race for Jabberwocky in plenty of time!
The Sciortino sisters demonstrate what’s a healthy breakfast before running 5k–bread and blue gatorade.
Everyone getting psychologically ready for the race.
Time for some family photos–here’s Cy and his mom.
Winter mom and daughter–where would the race be without them?

Chris M. gravely examines the medal Liza just hung around his neck.
Alex got a cool henna tattoo the day before! (Don’t worry, Alex’s Mom, it’s not permanent!)
And the 5K has begun! Early front runners.
Daniel races with his family
I really admired this man’s beard and I think you will too!
Bike riders Tyler and Peter.
And Jenna and Erin.
Jeremy’s wheelchair broke down right at the beginning of the race. He was very philosophical about it.
Katie D. and John K. keep track of when all the runners cross the finish line.
Kyle is the number one wheelchair racer! I heard he only had to run over one person to achieve this.
James B. awaiting the return of runners.
Michael P’s chair corners well!
Daniel bringing it home.
Here comes Chris B.
Grace and Heather didn’t run the 5K, but that didn’t stop them from running over the finish line in dramatic style.
First place dog!
James B. meets the second place dog.
Meanwhile, Michael F. relaxed the whole time.
Peter waits to greet his dad as he crosses the finish line.
Sweaty, triumphant Daniel K. family after picture.
No, but wait! This is actually the Daniel K. family after picture! This is how many people Daniel’s parents brought to the race!
No, wait, there are more awesome racers who accompanied Daniel’s parents! So many we can’t fit them all in one picture. Thanks so much to all of them!
Leys hands out the awards.
With some help from her friends.
Kyle getting all emo about being a winner.
Kevin receiving his award.
Dance party on the bus before we head home.
This is how Jabberwocky counselors stretch after a race.
After lunch, a small group went to the beach. (And a large group stayed back at camp to get some rest and do other stuff after our big morning.)
Luckily it’s possible to rest on the beach too.
After dinner we had a Studio Night where each cabin did skits and songs that we had somehow found time to”rehearse.” I don’t want to brag or anything, but our antics were filmed by CBS for a well-known show that you’ve probably heard of. The film crew wanted to spend every second with us, but during the middle of the day they were called away to cover some nobodies like Obama and the Clintons.
Momeraths number from “The Sound of Music” somehow mashed up into “Greased Lightning.”
Bandersnatch covered The Wizard of Oz.
Josh K. was the Mayor of Munchkinland.
Kevin and Michael P. sang The Star-Spangled Banner.
Andrew Z. sang “Kokomo.”
The choreographic stylings of Slithy Toves!
Jub Jub composed an original song called “Wong.”
There was something about Adam being a cunning… nope, can’t remember.
Galumphing’s sketch was full of blood-shed.
While Mimsy (Amanda, Alex, Claire, Heather, and Grace) melted our hearts with “Let It Go” from Frozen.
Richard introduced Tulgeywood’s skit: “Live from New York… It’s Saturday Night!”
“May I have a tossed salad?”
On a more serious note, tomorrow we have to say au revoir to three beloved campers: Tori, James B., and Justin. We’re so glad you could come and we’ll see you next summer!
