We have had some pretty cool, sci fi themed activities as well, such as archery targets being Dementors from Harry Potter (pictured below). All of the camp Villains keep appearing as well, in search of "the essence" to help restore power. What a week full of mysteries and magic!

This week at camp, so many spooky things appeared! A lot of the villains of camp were around causing problems. We also had a mad scientist creating a (not so) friendly monster! But luckily the monster did finally turn nice! The haunted trail created by counselor Amanda, the CITs and our Mohegans was a huge success! All of the campers who stayed on the night out were perfectly spooked by it!

WEEK 9: Mystery Week
8/17 - 8/21
Thursday Late Night: 8/20
We had an amazing summer in YEAR 10! Thank you to everyone that made it a great camp season! This last week at camp we solved the mystery of the lost microphone. The culprit??....Kortni! Although Kortni stole the microphone she kindly returned it after a long court case that proved her guilt. She explained that she only took it so that she could have a memory of Camp Phoenix! We forgive you Kortni... :)
The Camp Phoenix family wishes Kortni all the best as she finishes her last year of college and enters the real world!
We are sure she will come back to visit us. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to this camp, Kortni!
It wouldn't have been the same without you!
We hope Kortni enjoys all of her memories from camp and her gifts, especially Freddie the Fish!
