I was pounding my way down Hi-way 101 in a mad rush to get to the redwoods, when I realized “what’s the rush?”
So I grabbed up a campsite at a place called Big Lagoon.
Got setup, sipped on some whisky, wished I’d had a fire, and listen to the ocean.
Because you can’t see it in that picture but if you turn your head and look to the right there is the water.

It’s really hard to know what to bring to camp as a counsellor if it’s your first time working, even when you are returning staff it’s hard to remember everything you need. I’ve come up with a list of everything you could possibly need up at camp. Enjoy!
Phantom of the Opera Restaged National Tour Review
Here it is folks, my complete review of the “new” re-staged US national
tour. Below the cut you’re going to find a scene-by-scene review as well
as overall impressions, observations, and opinions regarding this new
staging. My old school phan cohort, @inkedalchemy attended this
performance with me and we were honestly trying to stay as open minded and
neutral as possible regarding a new look to the classic show. In general,
there were things that we liked, and could see worked into the original production.
We also saw things we did not care for at all. But despite that, we’ve compiled a thorough review for you all to
read and consider.
But before I get started, I will emphasize the fact that this is NOT a game of
“WTF do you know,” nor do I wish to start another internet flame fest between
those who prefer the new tour and those who prefer the original
production. Let’s all be adults, let’s all be civil, let’s all respect
each others’ opinions. Those who felt I was unfairly judging the new
tour before told me I could not have an opinion on it without seeing it in person…well, I
went and paid money and did that. While there were aspects I enjoyed, my
overall impression of the production did not change.
Generally at the end of the week at camp, you give awards to the kids in your cabin! A cheat sheet for awards is brought to you now! Awards can be stressful and nobody likes hearing the same old awards repeated in every cabin group for every session. Get creative! Make it fun! As fun as you make it, it also has to be something positive. As my boss always says “Awards are more for the parents, then they are for the kids” so make the kid happy, but ultimately make the parent happy. They want to know that their kid had a great time at camp so they send them back next summer! If you are having trouble coming up with awards, check out their file! See what the kids parents wanted them to accomplish at camp, if they accomplished that make their award suit that! And now… click “keep reading” fooooooor
there should actually be a summer camp called punk rock 101 but in ads they says it’s a sport camp for free and they have this symbol for people to know that it’s actually the punk rock 101 camp and so your parents send you there for the rest of the summer where bowling for soup is there to teach you all about punk rock and give you a punk rock makeover and when you get back your parents are like “no!” and you’re like “yes!”
Incoming first years, this is for you. Marching band is tons of fun, but it also ain’t easy. Camp at most schools usually run from morning to late afternoon.
1. Bring a backpack (or two). One for everything that’ll stay in the band room (e.g. lunch), a smaller one for everything needed at the field.
2. WATER. Make sure you have a water jug big enough to last the entire day. 72oz. is perfect. Keep extra water bottles in your bag so you can refill.
3. Don’t put too much ice into your water. Ice-cold water will shock your body from the sudden change in temperature, causing you to actually lose energy.
4. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty. You need to drink up the night before to be hydrated in the morning; water takes approx. 8 hours to go through your system. If you’re thirsty in the morning, you’re probably already dehydrated.
5. DRINK YOUR WATER. But don’t chug it or you’ll feel sick later. Take sips.
9. Pack sunglasses and/or a hat and sunblock. Also, moisture-wicking shirts are fantastic, so buy a few if you can.
10. Reapply sunblock every few hours. If you get sunburnt, aloe vera soothes nicely. Reapply even if you don’t burn easily. UV rays aren’t good for your skin, and you’ll be under the sun a lot.
11. Eat a good breakfast. I learned this the hard way and almost caught heat exhaustion. A single waffle doesn’t count.
12. Pack a healthy lunch. You need healthy nutrients to last the rest of the day; junk food definitely won’t provide those.
13. No, pizza is not healthy.
14. Camp will be tough without tennis shoes. You wouldn’t compete at a track meet in Converse! Marching band is its own sport too.
15. Bring extra ____. Reeds, sticks, valve/slide oil, anything to make sure you’re 100% prepared. Deodorant and extra hair ties are also good ideas.
16. Always have a pencil.
17. Memorize your music. Take it a phrase at a time, then string them together. It’s how I quickly memorized everything last year.
18. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Most bands have a student leadership. We wouldn’t go through a long audition process if we didn’t want to help!
19. Sleep. Your body needs rest after a long day of work, please listen to it!
20. Remember to breathe. There will be times when things feel uncomfortable; you need to breathe to get through it. Be aware of when you aren’t breathing.
Have a great season! It’s lots of time and tireless work, but worth every second. Knowing you’re around people you’ve come to love while doing what you all love to do is one of the best feelings out there.
