A camper's notebook.
Day 3: Sunday August 16th (cont)*
Dinner was good but the ice cream pie was AMAZING!
At the theatre they said Chris Mayhew is making a video of camp. I can’t wait to see that! Rosemary said she runs the Sorcerers Safari social media accounts and will help promote events that campers are involved with. Impressive. I don’t get the sense that people here think they’re better than anyone else -- they all just want to see everyone succeed. Just like our moms and dads. But WAY cooler.
Mike Close played some beautiful piano before the show. (Is everyone here crazy talented?) The lip syncs were extra funny tonight. Rosemary (singer) and Chris Westfall (background cheerleader) did “Cheerleader" by Omi, and Jonah (with Jonah supporting) did a duet -- "Love Is An Open Door" from Frozen. HYSTERICAL!!!!

Tonight’s show was called the “World Champion Show” and featured three award winning magicians! I got to see Greg Frewin, Shawn Farquhar, and Daryl all on the same stage. I bet that the evening shows alone are worth the price of camp.
Rocket popsicles for bedtime snack! (The sugar will help keep me awake for cabin visits!) Eric came and gave us all mouth coils to try. (I thought they would never end!! We’re going to decorate the bunks with them tomorrow.) Lee Asher showed us some super cool tricks with cards and then he showed us specialty decks we’d never heard of. They looked really fancy.
