This week at High Meadows Camp                                              June 19, 2015
Medieval Day
Today was Medieval Day. Dressed as damsels, dragons, wizards, and everything in between, campers paraded around campus before coming up to the High Meadow, where they played games and participated in booths run by each Seniors castle and Specialist unit. To cap it all off, Seniors Leadership Staff Annie and Warren, got "married" in a ceremony performed by fellow Seniors Counselor and ordained minister Michael.

Place Highlight: Stonehenge
Stonehenge is the heart of many of the activities of Senior Camp. It serves as the place where Senior Legend has morning and afternoon meetings. It is also where the first-day orientation and end-of-session awards ceremonies for all of Senior Camp (Quest
 and Legend) happen. In the center of Stonehenge is the Knighthood Circle. At the end of the awards ceremony, a camper who has achieved the overall level of Knight enters this circle and pulls out the sword, Excalibur, from the stones. Pictured below are Stonehengeis it looked in the 1990's, the knighting of the first ever knight, Kat Pebworth, in 1982, and today's knight, Jack, the first camper to achieve Knighthood this year, shown with several previous Knights. We are super proud of Jack's hard work and dedication to reaching this point.

Tradition Highlight
Wampus Cat 
out for your toothbrushes

The Wampus Cat has been spotted in the woods! He has been known to lurk around Wampus Springs off the trail that follows the creek. He often sneaks up to Senior Legend to steal toothbrushes from unsuspecting campers on their overnight. Good luck, campers, and keep your toothbrushes close by!
