Q & A with Leadership Director Baloo

Q:  What are you most excited for this summer?
A: Going on trip to Killarney with the LITs (Leaders in Training).

Q: If you could have dinner with someone dead or alive, who would it be?
A: JRR Tolkien. Someone who has created such a fantastic world is incredibly interesting to me.

Q: What is your favourite camp meal?
A: My favorite meal is taco salad, with all the toppings aside from those that contain dairy (Editor’s Note: he is allergic to casein, a protein in dairy).

Q: If you had to choose between Frank’s Red Hot and Sriracha, what would you choose?
A: If I had to pick one type of hot sauce, I would pick Frank’s.

Q: What is your favourite place at camp?

A: There is a big flat rock near the high ropes area that is special to me. I remember sitting there on my first year on staff and all the staff were doing high ropes. I sat there, watching the staff joke around and it hit me that I was finally on staff.

Q&A with PLC Director Bulma

Q: What were you like in high school?
A: I always worked on the musical! I was fairly involved in school activities but I was pretty introverted, and spent most of my time with my three best friends.

Q: We finish this interview and you step outside the summer camp office and find a lottery ticket that ends up winning $10 million. What would you do?
A: I would ask at staff meeting if anyone lost a lottery ticket. If anyone said yes, I would give it back to them and ask for a portion of their winnings.

Q: What would you do with your portion of the winnings?
A: I would go on a trip to Iceland. Right off the bat, I would want to check in, take a nap, then go to the hot springs.

Q: What’s your favourite ’90s jam?
A: Stop Right Now by the Spice Girls. I made up a dance to it and I always ended with a high jump kick.

Q: What do you think about when you’re alone in your car?
A: Besides driving, I normally sing along to music. I like to listen to Top 40 as long as it goes with the windows down. But when I pull up to red lights I roll the windows up.

Q: What’s your favourite camp meal?

A: Taco salad, but the soups have been amazing.

More from media class!

This week in media class, PLC campers and Intermediates were given the opportunity to write posts for the camp blog! This is a fictional post by Sam, about the legend of the Zingettes.

By Sam

October 3rd, 1921

What I saw wasn’t human. I saw a creature running around camp and nobody believes me! It’s a huge lizard. Its spine is lined with spikes, it runs on four legs and glides as gracefully as a black ribbon, fluttering through the woods.
I know for a fact that it is real. It has to be.

October 4th, 1921

I need to give it a name, something graceful, chilling and powerful.
They are dangerous.
If you ever happen to come across a zingette… Run!
Run until you can’t breathe.
Don’t under any circumstances let them catch you, especially if they are showing aggressive behaviour.
They WILL catch you.

October 5th, 1921

I keep seeing zingettes running around.
I have recently been able to get close to one that was sleeping.
I ran my hand down its cold, slick back and I froze. My chest tightened with every breath I took.
I thought this was the end of me.
But it wasn’t.
I wouldn’t be writing this entry if I wasn’t for a person who was strong and important. His voice was powerful as he said “My name is Jeiegelovyew.” He saved me and I hope to see him again.

October 16th, 1921

Today was a day to celebrate! I am finally free from the nightmarish creatures known as zingettes. They have been chased into the lake by Jeiegelovyew and his accomplices! I AM FREE!

A short story from our new media class!

Media class has been taking pictures, making videos, writing stories and more. Check out one of our campers short stories!

Tuck Lord Channing:

A short story by Javier Bedford

Midge was guarding the tuck shop one night. Suddenly, he heard a lot of knocking on the door, “bang”. He heard it again- “bang”. The door started opening slowly and it finally opened. It was just Barnacle trying to spook him.  Barnacle told Midge to come with him to the staff meeting. 

The two went off to the staff meeting. But then out of the bushes came Channing. He saw that the key to the tuck shop was on the ground near the door and grabbed it. He grabbed the key and inserted it into the door. He heard a pretty loud creeping noise as he turned the key to open the door.

He heard someone coming down the hill. He heard “Forgot my key somewhere” he knew it must of been Midge. He grabbed everything as fast as he could, from dried mangos to banana chips. Then he jumped through the opening and ran and hid in the bushes.  He heard Midge shout “Oh My” and then saw him running up the hill towards the classroom where the staff meeting was being held. 

Channing quickly escaped with the all the candies. He knew what he had to do. The other staff had been getting extra tuck for too long. He put all of the tuck in separate bags and rushed to put them outside every single camper cabin.  Finally he was done and went back to his cabin.
