Halloween Too ~ 2016

HalloweenToo (9)

You know, Tami really needs to re-name the second Halloween weekend.   I mean, doesn’t Halloween Too, make it sound like we do all the exact, same, stuff as Halloween One?

But we don’t!

For example, sure -we still have story time and bocci and bubble play on Friday.  But we also had a walk through the Freaky Forest in search of a Sneaky Snake.

HalloweenToo2 (2)

And we made Springy Snakes and played Ghost-Goblin games in the picnic area, too!

HalloweenToo2 (4)

On Saturday we made Ghostly Site markers instead of the pumpkin ones we made last week.

HalloweenToo2 (18)

HalloweenToo2 (17)

HalloweenToo2 (16)

We made a gazillion of them – in hopes there’d be a gazillion sites giving out candy.  And that’s all my little campers talked about

all . . . day . . . Saturday!

Candy!

But before that, we played relay games –

HalloweenToo2 (31)

HalloweenToo2 (33)

HalloweenToo2 (32)

HalloweenToo2 (34)

And we shot off ghostly water balloons.

HalloweenToo2 (67)

Buuuuut, these waterballoons didn’t go through you like a ghost does!

HalloweenToo2 (49)

HalloweenToo2 (52)

It sure is fun to watch my little campers try to catch them though!

HalloweenToo2 (51)

HalloweenToo2 (50)

HalloweenToo2 (56)

HalloweenToo2 (61)

HalloweenToo2 (62)

HalloweenToo2 (64)

In the afternoon, some of the campers asked Tami if it was time to Trick or Treat yet. “No,” she said. “Not till 6:30pm.”

“6:30?!!” I said. “Next year, *I* want to make the schedule!”

Tami laughed. “If *YOU* made the schedule, we’d have trick or treating a dozen times on Saturday alone, and nothing else!”

Hmmmmm. That sounded pretty good actually, until I remembered that we were supposed to have a Mummy Wrap contest . . .

HalloweenToo2 (80) HalloweenToo2 (82)

HalloweenToo2 (83)

HalloweenToo2 (86)

HalloweenToo2 (95)

And jewelry making for teens . . .

HalloweenToo2 (108)

And a fang spitting contest!!

HalloweenToo2 (112)

HalloweenToo2 (114)

Boy, can our campers spit!!

HalloweenToo2 (115)

Seeds!  They’re spitting seeds!

HalloweenToo2 (116)

Even the adults!!

HalloweenToo2 (118)

And if we only had trick or treating and nothing else, we wouldn’t have the Haunted Hayride!!

HalloweenToo (19)

HalloweenToo (13)

Our campers were soooooo ready for the trick or treating and costume party, they showed up in their costumes!

HalloweenToo (5)

HalloweenToo (10)

HalloweenToo (9)

HalloweenToo (6)

HalloweenToo (23)

HalloweenToo (43)

At 6:15, our little campers began to arrive at the Office.

“What time is it?  What time is it?”  They all asked, over and over again!

HalloweenToo (49)

And they tried to wait patiently . . .

HalloweenToo (51)

HalloweenToo (44) HalloweenToo (56)

HalloweenToo (57)

Now, the one thing that DOES stay the same. The thing that never, ever changes, is Tami giving the *yawn* rules to the restless crowd.

Don’t knock on blah-blah-blah . . . be sure to come back for blah-blah-blah . . . leave your bikes blah-de-blah-blah .  . .

(That’s what WE hear, because all we can think of is 132 sites of  CANDY!)

HalloweenToo2 (121)

Finally!  Tami asked for her picture . . .

 

HalloweenToo (62)

Then she said . . .

“Go!!  Have fun!!”

And we did!

HalloweenToo (67) HalloweenToo (69)

HalloweenToo (73)

HalloweenToo (87)

Tami, Nate and Brooke set up for the costume party . . .

HalloweenToo (82)

HalloweenToo (84) HalloweenToo (85)

HalloweenToo (86)

HalloweenToo (80)

And then it was THEIR turn to wait and wait and wait.

Tami started to get a little worried no one was coming .  . .

HalloweenToo (95)

But she shouldn’t have!

HalloweenToo (94)

HalloweenToo (121)

HalloweenToo (134) HalloweenToo (97)

HalloweenToo (136)

HalloweenToo (147)

HalloweenToo (100)

HalloweenToo (105)

HalloweenToo (113)

HalloweenToo (127)

HalloweenToo (152)

Tons of campers came to play games for prizes and try our fruit kabob treats.

Tami, David, Alex and I, want to thank everyone who came to have fun this past weekend; whether you were a Trick or Treaters or a Candy-hander-outer!  Hope to see you next year!

HalloweenToo (148)

Halloween One!

What a lucky Moose I am!!

HalloweenOne (30)

I get to have two Halloween Parties every year!

Two!!

Once in October on the “real” Halloween, and again in August!

I think I like the August one better though – ’cause we have cool activities like Story Time and Bocci and Bubble Play and  . . .

making Lake Monsters!

HalloweenOne (46) HalloweenOne (48)

We don’t make Lake Monsters in October!

We do the usual weekend stuff too, like Arts and Crafts and water balloon slingshot and jewelry making and Horseshoes and a scavenger hunt.

Whew! That’s a lot of stuff!

But we have different things too, like blowing our whistles and marching in a Pumpkin Parade!

HalloweenOne (56)

and having a Witch’s Stew Eating Contest!

HalloweenOne (65)

HalloweenOne (66)

HalloweenOne (68)

(I always want to eat the stew too, but Tami won’t let me. She says it’ll get in my fur!)

We had only one glitch in the whole weekend – there was a shower at Hayride time. *heavy sigh*  But Debbie and Brooke had this really cool idea and they told all the kids to meet them at the Rec Hall.

“What are they doing?” I asked Tami.

“Creating Frankenstein Monsters,” she said. The phone rang and she picked it up.

“Frankenstein Monsters?” I cried. “Isn’t that dangerous!? I mean you know what happened to the villagers in the book, right?”  Tami shot me her pipe-down-so-I-can-hear-the-customer-on-the-phone-look.  You know the one.

So I ran to the Rec Hall, before they all did something crazy . . .

And I found this  . . .

HalloweenOne (78)

HalloweenOne (79)

HalloweenOne (72) HalloweenOne (74)

HalloweenOne (71)

Boy, was I embarrassed!  They weren’t making reeeeeeal, Frankenstein Monsters.

Or were they?

HalloweenOne (76)

At 6:30, Tami gathered all our little campers at the office for a special announcement and some Trick or Treating rules. As usual, all we kids  heard was blah-blah-blah-blaaaaah.  All we could think about was the candy.

Just when I thought she was going to tell us all to begin- she made us pose for a photo!

HalloweenOnephone (28)

And she wasn’t done there!  She kept stopping everyone, making them pose and telling them how adorable they were . . . and clever . . . and scary . . .

HalloweenOnephone (59) HalloweenOnephone (58)

HalloweenOnephone (27) HalloweenOnephone (25)

I kept whispering, “Tami! We want to go get the candy!”

But she kept saying, “Just one more!”

HalloweenOnephone (23) HalloweenOnephone (21)

Yeah. Her one more is really like a gazillion more.

HalloweenOnephone (18)

HalloweenOnephone (17) HalloweenOnephone (10)

HalloweenOne (50)

 

She followed us down the street, taking picture after picture after picture!

HalloweenOnephone (48)

HalloweenOnephone (45)

HalloweenOnephone (41)

HalloweenOnephone (33)

“You’d better get back and set up the party!” I tried distracting her.

“What time is it?” she asked, snapping another photo.

“Seven o’clock,” I said.

She was off like a shot to the rec hall!  Luckily, Debbie and Brooke had everything taken care of. Whew!

HalloweenOne (5)

There were lots of fun games . . .

HalloweenOne (7)

And I got to hang out with all my little campers for a bit.

HalloweenOne (10)

HalloweenOne (11)

HalloweenOne (14)

HalloweenOne (27)

I even got to try a game or two!

HalloweenOne (28)

Now, I wasn’t cheating here . . . it only loooooks like I was stepping over the line.

HalloweenOne (29)

There were cool prizes like spiders to scare Tami with . . .

HalloweenOne (23)

And vampire teeth, too!

HalloweenOne (15)

And we had Witch’s fingers and Goblin punch for a snack!

HalloweenOne (37)

Yes! I’m the luckiest moose in the world, ’cause I get two Hallowee-

What?

I get three?

Oh! Right!  We’re going to do it all again THIS weekend too!

Woo-Hoo!!

I can’t wait!

HalloweenOne (25)

Medieval Fairy Tale Weekend

But . . . wait . ..

“Which is it?”, I asked Tami.

Medieval?

20160806_153919

or

Fairy Tale?

20160806_152525

“Both?” she said.

BOTH!

Sometimes that Tami has great ideas.

Knights in shining armor started arriving to help protect Poland Spring Campground right after Tami hung the banners.

20160805_173648

Tami said she felt safer with them camping with us.

Debbie and Brooke took all their favorite activities from last year’s Medieval and Fairy Tales weekends and put them together in one awesome package! Hammer Throw Games (Bocci), Bubble Play and a Fairy and Gnome hunt. We made Viking Ships at arts and crafts and sailed them in the lake.

And that was only Friday.

Early on Saturday, all our little campers went to Arts and Crafts to make shields, scepters and medieval crowns.

IMG_0390

IMG_0389

Oh, they were amazing!

IMG_0396

And then it was time to practice how to be a knight . . .

IMG_0398

IMG_0402

IMG_0399

We played leap frog . . .

IMG_0404

And three legged races . . .

IMG_0416 IMG_0417

And we jousted too!

IMG_0419

IMG_0420

IMG_0427

IMG_0425

IMG_0424

IMG_0423

We shot off water balloons, had a scavenger hunt and ate porridge!

IMG_0443

IMG_0437

IMG_0435

IMG_0432

At the hayride, everyone came in their finest court dress!

Princesses and knights alike!

20160806_151948

20160806_153940

20160806_154404

20160806_154621

And Saturday night, we were very honored to have Hope and Carol from Wind Over Wings!!

A crowd gathered on our playing field.

IMG_9426

IMG_9425

 

They brought us Tansy the Screech Owl . . . who was hit by a car and lost an eye.

IMG_9355 IMG_9362

Kai the American Kestrel who was also rescued after being hit by a car. She can no longer fly.

IMG_9397

And Cessna.  Red Shouldered Hawks aren’t usually calm in captivity, but after being injured, her caregivers noticed that Cessna was. She recuperated from her injuries nicely, but her wing feathers didn’t grow back.  Like the other raptors, she now helps Hope and Carol and the rest of the Wind Over Wings staff, in their quest to form a connection between us and wildlife.

20160806_181747

And last but not least – Skywalker graced us with his presence.

IMG_9502

IMG_9535

Such a gorgeous raptor. A stunning Golden Eagle.

IMG_9524

IMG_9507

His story is inspiring . . . uplifting . . . and emotional.  Tami sheds a few tears every time she hears it.

You can read all about it here, on the Wind Over Wings website.

Now excuse me . . . I have to go figure out what my costume is going to be for Halloween One!

Halloween Too  (93)

I’m going to try hard to be scarier than this guy, this year.

 

 

Fiesta, Fiesta!!!

From the very first time we ever had a Fiesta Weekend, it’s been a hit!  Campers love, love, love it!!

In fact, it makes them feel like dancing . . .

20160730_190642 20160730_190641

There’s so much fun packed into just a couple days.

And if you’re silly enough to take a Siesta

20160730_154741

you’ll miss it!

It was a mix of our usual recreation, like bubble play, bocci, kickball, story time, jewelry making . .  .

IMG_0359

IMG_0358

arts and crafts, water balloon slingshot and a penny hunt in the pool.

IMG_0339

But mixed in with those were different activities too –

I bet you can’t guess what this one is!

IMG_0355

IMG_0357

You do??

Awww – I  bet the sacks gave it away!

We had a seed spitting contest! That’s always fun!  And at Saturday Arts and Crafts, we made sombreros, Poland Spring style!

IMG_0343

20160730_152038 20160730_152049

On Saturday afternoon, everyone wore their sombreros and brought their maracas on the hayride.

20160730_153209(0)

20160730_154236 20160730_153916

Pssst – somebody needs to show this little camper how to wear his hat . . .

20160730_155133

And on Saturday night . .. we had a Fiesta PARTY!!!

Debbie, Maggie, Tami and Dave planned an awesome carnival style party with tons of games like ring toss, bouncing ball, and the very difficult, very challenging stack-the-empty-cans-on-a-floating plate  . . .

20160730_192519 20160730_192544

You could get a tattoo (not the real kind, I checked)  . . .

20160730_191144 20160730_191208

Or throw darts to POP a balloon . . .

20160730_190609

All for prizes!!

You could get a Sopapilla from Debbie and Ron . . .

20160730_192405

*heavy sigh* I wish *I* could have got a sopapilla.  But Tami wouldn’t let me. She says I’m a messy eater, and the honey gets caught in my fur.

20160730_192454

And if that wasn’t enough . . . we had the bouncy house too!

IMG_0372

Aaaaaand, for those of you who are still saying, “is that all you got?”

We had pinatas. Four of them.

20160730_184042

Made right here in the campground!

IMG_0335

But don’t think they were easy to crack!

20160730_194730

20160730_193641

20160730_190952 20160730_190953

They were not! But when they did . . .

20160730_194209

tons and tons of candy flowed out!

20160730_193841

We sure did have an awesome time, and I wanted it to last forever and ever and ever . . .

20160730_191044

IMG_0369

20160730_152811

But now we have to hang up our sombreros to get ready for Medieval Fairy Tale Weekend and Hope from Wind Over Wings . . .

She’s bringing her amazing raptors . . . including Skywalker. I can’t wait!

IMG_3537

IMG_3579

 

Helloooooo Campers!

 

I can’t stand it anymore!!!  It’s so booooooring around this place without all of you, my little campers!

The store’s closed, game room’s closed, pool’s closed, and worst of all . . .

The Snack Bar is closed!

Memorial Day 2015 (16)

I’ve had nothing to write about . . . nobody to talk to . . .

well, except this guy.

Halloween Too  (80)

But he doesn’t say much.

And then just now,  I went into the house for a snack and saw THIS on Tami’s camp desk!  CALENDAR OF EVENTS 2016

Finally!  Sheesh!  It took her long enough.

Now I can start counting down to Camping Season!

Only 113 days until Clean Up Weekend!

Yes!

 

Labor Day 2015

20150904_193737

Tami about fell off her stool, when this grumpy camper walked in the store!  I mean, really??  What does he have to be grumpy about?  We had tons of cool things happening at the campground!!

There was our last Candy Bar Bingo of the season.  Our last Arts and Crafts.  The last Waterballoon Slingshot.  Our last Patriotic Parade

 

20150905_103451

Our last Horseshoe Tournament, Jewelry Making, and Hayrides, too.

Our last group photo of 2015.

20150905_131312

20150905_131400

 

Our last Storytime with Moose Mix . . . . HEEEEEEE-Y!

20150906_091256

I think I get it.

Darn it!  Now I’m grumpy, too!

Medieval Weekend 107

“Get up, Maxwell,” Tami scolded. “You’re antlers will stay droopy if you keep pouting like that. Go spit some seeds or something.”   Tami paused, then slapped a hand to her forehead.

“What’s the matter?” I asked.

“I can’t believe I just gave you permission to go spit.”  She sighed.

I laughed all the way to the Seed Spitting Contest!  That’s all I needed, was a giggle.  Tami’s so smart.

From there my little campers and I went to Bocci, Bubble Play, Kickball and lots more!!

One of the really cool highlights of the weekend was Trash Bag Theater!

We had four groups of kids, brave enough to play.  They each got a trash bag of random items, and they had twenty minutes to create a play, using each one of the items.  Then they performed their stories in front of the campground audience.  Sooooooo, much fun!!

IMG_3120

IMG_3124

IMG_3137

IMG_3148

We had plays titled, Sideway Tales, The Witch and the Sword, Pollution Mystery, and Distracted Crows.  Great job everyone!!!

The recreation may be put away, but we aren’t closed yet!  We’ll be here until Columbus Day and the lake is prettiest this time of year.  Come and camp one more time!!!

Aliens!! Aliens Everywhere!

I forgot to mention that Poland Spring Campground was overrun by Aliens back in August!!

Aliens!!!  Everywhere!!

IMG_3088

No!  Not them!  Those are aren’t the aliens, those are my little campers.  Sheesh.  THEY played all kinds of games with Debbie, like flashlight tag, water balloon slingshot, jewelry making, space games . . .

and an alien slime eating contest.

Alien Slime!!!!

IMG_3091

Shudder!

IMG_3090

I was hanging out with them, minding my own business, when all of a sudden, Aliens started showing up all over the place!

IMG_3080

In the rec hall . . .

IMG_3081

In the office circle . . .

IMG_3096

I couldn’t escape them!!

IMG_3097

IMG_3098

IMG_3099

 

And I couldn’t get them to leave!  I dragged a couple of the littlest Aliens over to Tami and told them, “Here!  Here’s my leader!  You can have her!  Now go back to your planet!”

“What on Earth are you talking about Maxwell!?”  Tami asked.

“I think, HE thinks, we’re really aliens!”

IMG_3100

One of my little campers lowered their mask. “We just want to bounce!” she said, as she ran to the Space Walk Bouncy House.

IMG_3107

Tami put her hands on her hips.  “Maxwell?  Really?  Aliens in the campground?”  She took out her camera and started scrolling through the photos she’d taken all day.  “See?  They made masks and alien friends at Arts and Crafts.”

 

IMG_3077a

IMG_3079

I took the camera.  “Sorry. My bad. I guess I over-reacted.”  A shiny object going into the store caught my eye.  “Wait!” I dragged Tami to the store.  “So what about that?” I cried peering in the window.

IMG_3108

“Maxwell!  You’re letting your imagination run away with you!  For heaven’s sake, those are my friends!!  He’s an astronaut and she’s a school teacher.  For the last time, there’s no such thing as Aliens.  Now go play!”

She marched in the store.  I didn’t dare ask her about the next picture on the camera.

IMG_3083

But it looks like an Alien to me!

Halloween One 2015!

 

The Halloween decorations went up on Thursday the 13th,  and all the little campers were most excited!!

Halloween 1  (30)

Our usual Thursday recreation has Sandcastle building on the playground . . . .

Halloween 1  (32)

 

And boy-oh-boy, did they ‘go to town’ with their building!  Look at the details!  The American Flag . . . the roads . . .

Halloween 1  (36)

 

And is that a bridge??  Impressive!

Halloween 1  (37)

What a cute little city!

On Friday, after Storytime, Bocci, and Bubble Play, Debbie took the little campers to the lake for a Nature Walk.  Along the way, they picked up all kinds of nature items to make Lake Monsters for the Costume Party on Saturday.

Halloween 1  (46)

Halloween 1  (45)

Halloween 1  (44)

FINALLY, Saturday was here! The BIG DAY!  Kids stampeding all over the place!!

At Arts and Crafts, we made site markers so the campers could mark their sites if they were giving out candy. We made lots and lots and lots of them . . . .

Halloween 1  (62)

 

In hopes there’d be lots and lots and lots of campers TO give out candy.

Halloween 1  (61)

Halloween 1  (59)

Then we made Frankensteins!

Eureka!!

Halloween 1  (75)

It’s Alive!!!

Halloween 1  (71)

Well, kinda-sorta alive!!!

Halloween 1  (69)

We shot water balloons, made jewelry, had an adult horseshoe tournament and joined the  scavenger hunt and THEN . . .

It was witch’s stew eating time!!!

Halloween 1  (83)

Halloween 1  (84)

Tami just won’t let me do this, no matter how hard I try!!  I pleaded!  I begged!!  But she firmly said no!

I wonder why?

 

Halloween 1  (88)

We tried to have a Pumpkin Parade . . . we gathered .  . .

Halloween 1  (4)

But all of a sudden we heard rumbling and Tami cried, “Is that THUNDER????”  She and Debbie shooed us inside as fast as they could.  We played games instead and tried to guess the how many candy corns were in the jar.

Halloween 1  (7)

We kept one eye on the skies as the minutes ticked by . . . . 3 o’clock.  4 o’clock.  The skies cleared a bit and the sun peeked out.  5 o’clock.  6 o’clock.

6:30!!  Time for Tami to give the rules!!  And then she makes us pose for a group photo.

Halloween 1  (97)

Before she finally sends us out to trick or treat!!

Halloween 1  (8)

Halloween 1  (10)

Halloween 1  (11)

Halloween 1  (13)

Halloween 1  (20)

 

We got tons and tons of candy!!

Halloween 1  (18)

When we’d gone to every campsite that had a marker, we went down to the lake for a costume party and snacks.

Halloween 1  (25)

We all love having the party at the lake!

Halloween 1  (100)

Halloween 1  (126)

Halloween 1  (112)

Halloween 1  (111)

There’s all kinds of cool games to play for prizes.  And Sammie gives Tattoos too!

Halloween 1  (101)

She said the magic spell, tapped the tattoo with her wand and Abracadabra!!  The perfect Tattoo!

Halloween 1  (104)

I was amazed!!!  Maybe this time, finally, after all these years, the tattoo would stick to my fur!!  I crossed my fingers to help the magic . . .

Halloween 1  (23)

But it didn’t work.  Sigh. One of my little campers gave me a ghost sticker though!  I love my little campers!

And their costumes!

Halloween 1  (94)

Halloween 1  (95)

Halloween 1  (96)

 

Halloween 1  (117)

Before the party ended, I made sure to get myself a Halloween Frosting Stick and a glass of Tami’s special punch.

Halloween 1  (114)

Halloween 1  (113)

Choosing the sprinkles is always the hardest decision!

Halloween 1  (124)

When I saw the sun setting over the lake, I was so sad. I didn’t want Halloween to end.  I wanted to hang out with my little campers for ever and ever.  And ever.  I scuffed my feet in the dirt when Tami told me it was time to go.

 

But a pretty girl came over to tell me Halloween wasn’t ending yet!!  We had a whole week of recreation ahead of us!

“And trick or treating?  Another party?” I asked.

Halloween 1  (116)

“We’ll do it all over again next Saturday”, she said, before giving me a kiss right on my nose.

Yes!!  Halloween again!!  I can’t wait!!

 

Fairy Tale Weekend

Sometimes, it takes a couple years for a theme weekend to catch on and become big. Not so with Fairy Tale Weekend!!! We started with Bubble Play, a Fairy & Gnome treasure hunt, and Cottage Building for the wee folk  . . .

IMG_2855

IMG_2852   Then we had Tortoise and Hare Races on the playing field, Arts and Crafts, Waterballoon Slingshot, Jewelry Making, a Scavenger Hunt and a Porridge Eating Contest! IMG_2860   Tami wouldn’t let me enter that contest.  She said it’d get in my fur and she’d never get it out. IMG_2863 We had our usual Saturday Afternoon hayride and that’s when all the Fairy Tale Characters came out to play!! IMG_3291

Some of our characters gave a shout out to a special friend of ours, who’s staying at Boston Children’s Hospital.

IMG_3347

 

IMG_3301

How I loved meeting all the characters!

IMG_3377

IMG_3308

Shrek and Fiona were a huge hit!!

IMG_3310

We made Magical Wands and Fairy Tale Character headbands at Arts and Crafts.  There were lots and lots of spells being tossed around the hay wagon, I tell you!  I was worried I’d get changed into a toad or something.

IMG_3314

 

IMG_3325

And check out these knights in shining armor!!  Very impressive!  I’d let them guard my gate against fire breathing dragons any time!

 

IMG_3327

We had so many beautiful princesses too!
