Here is part of the letter that the parents received last night:
I hope all of the campers and prefects enjoyed their first day of camp! Here are a few details from today:
As the campers and prefects arrived and passed platform 9 3/4, they alighted at Hogwarts and were greeted by Headmistress McGonagall. The five groups are labeled with the first five Greek letters, alpha, beta, gamma, delta, and epsilon. The day began with wizard sports (quidditch and wizard chess), then everyone enjoyed a music session with the Maestra and Professor Harmony Ollivander. The visit to Diagon Alley resulted in finery that includes cloaks, hats, wands, bags, and coins from Gringott’s.
In the first part of the afternoon, we decorated lunch bags after learning about a program that provides lunch to the working homeless. The campers and prefects helped create 30 lunches that will be enjoyed this evening by 30 men. We had a bonus project, with a visit from Andreas, our Potion Professor’s “other” son, who has worked with children in the detention centers along the border. He told our children about his experiences and then taught them how to make friendship bracelets from embroidery floss. In the last part of the afternoon, we had fun watching Harry Potter movies (#1,#2, and #4 in three different rooms) and munching on popcorn.
