VAMPY has started off wonderfully. Camp has been running very smoothly, and the optional activities that we have had/will have are wonderful. So far at VAMPY, I have led a kickball optional and a Magic: The Gathering optional. Wednesday, I led an optional with Matthew Coleman called “The Matt’s Weird Weekly Wednesday Optional” during which we did some basic science demonstrations. First, we made make glow sticks out of mountain dew bottles, and then we made the famous diet-coke-and-Mentos fountain. All of the kids here at VAMPY really enjoy these optionals, and we usually have about 10 to choose from catering to many different interests.
