Unglued Camp 2018 began with a firework-holding, gyrating Unicorn and ended with major high-fives, new friendships and enough memories to get us through till next summer. For now, we look back on Unglued’s fourth year in hosting a group of kick ass people to craft, eat, dance, drink and ultimately enjoy every minute of their bitchin’ weekend away at summer camp!
Day 1 began when Unglued crew welcomed 150 campers to YMCA Camp Cormorant, with major smiles and a celebratory champagne shot! With cabin assignments in hand, guys and gals make their way to their separate cabins to get settled into their bunks.
It was then time for some ice-breakin’ mingling to be done at the beach, over Drekker beer and specially made mixed drinks by Proof Artisan Distillers. The ambiance was bass approved thanks to DJ AP and conversations were flowing, as the sunset began to set over the lake.
After happy hour came to a close, campers were directed to the Rec Hall for the first night of orientation. Camp crew synchronized their way up to the front where they welcomed each of the campers marching band style, ending with our signature camp dance, fireworks and a unicorn shaking it hard core!! (as one camper wrote in their survey “The drumline opening was insane and I can’t believe it actually happened.”)
For those of you who missed Beyonce’s performance at Coachella this year (*cough* shame on you *cough*), Unglued created an inspired camp theme off of her on-point sorority style. This included indicating what standing (senior, junior, sophomore or freshman) one was based on the number of years that they had attended camp. As classified newbies, freshman were required to wear red party hats to initiate them into camp.
Orientation ended with games, a talent show and sing-a-longs!
Day 2 welcomed campers with calm waters, copious amounts of hot coffee thanks to Twenty Below Coffee and a trombone wake up call.
Fitness options were given including sunrise yoga with Randi Kay, a trail run, water aerobics, and bootcamp with CrossFit Icehouse!
Hard pass on physical activity? No judgment there, campers also had the option of joining in on a club, including Book Club or Canoeing and Coffee.
For the third year, we were oh so lucky to have food blogger and host of Food Network show Girl Meets Farm, Molly Yeh, creating her masterpiece meals for our campers! We are talking breakfast sammies, homemade pizza and a donut wall (!!!) Yay, baby.
With full stomachs, campers made their way to their first two crafting sessions, including smoking your own cheese with master gardener, Jay, jewelry making with Larissa Loden and screen printing with artists, Miss Amy Jo and TOOTH, to name a few!
This cookie cake class blinged out cakes in 90’s fashion, under the direction of Molly Yeh! If this doesn’t scream Save by the Bell style, I don’t know what does?!
After a kick ass Molly Yeh lunch and free time (can you say, unicorn floaty + drinks + the lake), campers glammed up in preparation for our annual Camp Battle.
Team Yellow, Green, Orange, Blue, Red, Purple and Pink met center field to go head to head for first place!
