Sarah Meets Victor Wooten While Making a Difference!

Dear Make a Difference Director, team of awesome difference making people, and fellow Scampers, I’ve attended every Summer Camp Festival since 2005, and each year the festival has improved its green initiatives. Summer Camp 2012 was my first year volunteering for the Green Team and it was an amazing experience! I chose the Green Team… Read more »

Two Love Birds and Victor Wooten Memories…

The following story was lived, re-lived, and put to paper by two proud green team volunteers, Cailin and Michael. (As told by Michael) Victor Wooten: the man, the legend, and no more than 3 feet away from our faces; we stood in shock. Watching, listening as a musical prodigy explained music as it exists in… Read more »

Anay Sees Favorite Band and Hooping Hero!

Money was tight, but not going to Summer Camp was not an option. I had procrastinated buying a ticket but I knew I was going to make it! I could afford to buy a ticket, or I could go for free! I applied to be on the Green Team and crossed my fingers that it… Read more »

Jacqueline Shakes Hands with Les Claypool!

My favorite memory from last years Summer Camp began when I got my volunteer schedule and saw that I was scheduled to work from 8pm-1am on Friday night, which was when primus was going to be playing! There were many bands that I wanted to see but primus was at the very top of my… Read more »

There were huge puddles everywhere so people just stopped wearing shoes (except the people who were already not wearing shoes;). I… Read more »

Victor Wooten Takes Maya's Picture!

“Smile!” We abruptly turned around to see who demanded it, and Victor Wooten snapped a quick Polaroid from the back of his golf cart. We smiled, didn’t stop smiling until the weekend ended. After games of dodge ball, eating lunch to killer Umphrey’s set, and strolling down glow stick lit paths into magical woods full… Read more »

Gogol Bordello Thanks Chad!

I have been volunteering at Summer Camp with the green team for three years now and it gets better and better every time! Some of my favorite memories have been seeing the people that I have made friends with at past Summer Camps while volunteering and being able to share good music and good vibes… Read more »

Anthony Lucks into VIP

Aside from meeting some of the genuinely nice US populace outside the Northwest, I was taken by my chance. After a day of volunteering where I directed kids to proceed in the direction they were going. (I guess I was better than a sign. No hold ups or kids going off course). I lucked into… Read more »
