Yep, Harry Potter camp! It was run by our local community college, who has half day camps all summer. Most are the traditional sports & arts/crafts camps, but they also had 3 sessions of Harry Potter camp, Pirates camp, and Superheros camp. They made and decorated their own wands, made spellbooks (and practiced), collected potion ingredients and made potions, made "origami" owls carrying letters, did Harry Potter crossword puzzles and word searches, discussed the books and what they thought would happen in book 7, and their counselor read to them from book 5. I'm sure I'm forgetting things too, but DD had a blast. Oh, they wrote out their potion recipes on construction paper and blotted it with tea bags to make it look like old parchment. It was all really neat. The ages for this camp were 6-10, and there was another session for 10-13 year olds, but I don't know if they did the same activities or not. DD is hoping they'll offer it again next year.
