The Juniors may not have had an overnight trip, but the last two days have been nothing short of exciting! In true Trip Day manner, TJC slept in and enjoyed a late breakfast before departing for the movies to see...The Lion King! The excitement was felt all around. Following the sing-a-long viewing, the boys loaded the buses for their pool party and ice cream social at Danbee. The boys returned to MKN for dinner, when soon after flag lowering familiar music began playing on a golf cart driving around campus. The passengers waved their wands continuously as they signaled the breakout for TJC HARRY POTTER DAY!

All the boys were sorted into four houses (Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin) and they were ready for a full day of Hogwarts activities! Today's Harry Potter Day consisted of the following events:

Our Braves and Senecas arrived back safely yesterday; we are looking forward to the return of the Navajos and Cheyennes tonight and the Cherokees and Algonquins tomorrow. It's hard to stomach the reality that there are only 8 full days left of camp this summer. We have so much extraordinary left to share and we look forward to every minute of it!
