It was Harry Potter based since we are having a Harry Potter dinner tomorrow which is exciting. So all the campers were in groups and rotated though the stations and the stations were wand making, making decorations, Sorcerer’s stone searching and silver bullets (team building games). Everyone seem to love everything they were doing and playing but sadly rain hit us right at the end though so everything still worked out.
