Adventure days and studio nights

Today camp waved goodbye to the beach for the day and said we’d sea it real soon, then divided and conquered across the island. Some people went on the new boat that was kindly donated to camp!

Others spun stories and pet cats at the Chilmark Writing Workshop. The prompt was “the things we carry” and we all learned a lot about ourselves and each other as we read our pieces aloud.

Some people held down the fort at camp and took some very traditional camp classes, including archery, biking, cooking, writing postcards, and finding mermaids.

After everyone returned from their various travels as wiser, saltier versions of themselves, we all decided to go into town to debrief the morning and of course to get ice cream. We also spent the afternoon planning and practicing for our studio night, which was in a mere 4 hours!

Studio night was, as usual, incredible. We laughed, we cried, we said “awwwww” really loudly a lot, and we sang along! There were acts including singing and signing performances, dances, skits, and of course the occasional joke told by our two emcees, Dave “Sharpay” and Myles


Oh, also there was a baby there. He was a huge hit. Good job, Sully!jabb2016day6-23jabb2016day6-25jabb2016day6-24jabb2016day6-27
