I guess it’s pretty much impossible to get everyone at camp in just one place. Today (Thursday the 28th) was another day where we all went in different directions.
A small group went on a special trip to a catamaran in Menemsha called The Impossible Dream. Here’s the cool thing about this boat–it’s 60 feet long, very very beautiful, and UNIVERSALLY ACCESSIBLE.
That means that it was designed for anyone to use easily. And trust us, as soon as we got onboard, we felt as if it was built just for us!
The crew was amazing and took us for a beautiful sail. They even let us drive for a little bit!
When we weren’t navigating, we just kicked back and took it eeeeeeeeasy.
The Impossible Dream is based in Miami, but it sails up and down the East Coast hanging out with all kinds of groups like Camp Jabberwocky. We met last summer, and were so excited to see all our friends again this year!
We ruled the seas for a few hours and by the time we docked later in the afternoon, everyone aboard felt as if we were all family and had known each other for years. Although we were sad to see our friends go, we are already excited to see them the next time they come by Martha’s Vineyard!

Lunch was delicious, and the company was marvelous. It got us all excited for our evening activity, the Sharks game! We dressed up in most spirited attire, and yelled our heads off to support our comrades in purple.
We had a serious meeting with some of the players to discuss how they could best Jabberwock-ify their uniforms. Sharky listened carefully to all our suggestions.
While most people were at the Sharks game, another small group went to a fundraiser for camp that Liza organized. They spent the evening lounging about and telling people about our favorite place on earth. We told stories, sang songs, made wishes, and enjoyed each other’s company!
Richard and Kyle got cozy with a few visiting counselors from the July session!
Thank you to the generous donors who donated the lovely snacks!
We came back from our various locations late and worn out. But Jack and Nora promised a late wake-up and even more fun on Friday, yahoo!
