Greetings, Gotta Families!

Sorry I haven’t written in so long! It’s been such a busy summer full of travel–the back yard, the front porch, the kitchen, the living room, the back yard again… but on to the business at hand! We’ve got a whole bunch of fun stuff in store for our Gotta Campers next week!

In This Newsletter:
  • Virtual Camp
  • Gotta Camp At Home Challenge

Virtual Camp
In an alternate timeline, our overnight sessions would be starting this Sunday–unfortunately, I can’t change that part. What I can do is tell you about our “virtual camp” programming for next week! These activities are open to both overnight and day campers, seasoned veterans and first-timers. It doesn’t matter if you were registered for a 2020 session or not. There’s no charge, we just want to see our campers’ cheerful faces, and give them a Gotta Camp-infused week!

  • Sunday, Aug 2, 7:30pm – Opening Campfire via Zoom
  • Thursday, Aug 6, 7:30pm – Closing Campfire via Zoom

Can’t make it to Opening Campfire? Don’t fret! Monday morning, we’ll post a video to our website and social channels outlining all of the activities again!

  • Gotta Camp Spirit Days – if you use Instagram, post a picture and tag us on these theme days!
    • Tuesday – wear a tie dye shirt you made at Gotta Camp (or any other tie dye you’ve got!)
    • Thursday – wear your favorite Gotta Camp shirt and gear!
  • Joke Of The Day – camper submitted jokes with a twist, posted to our Instagram account
  • Gotta Try It activities – our Gotta Staffers have been leading weekly activities all summer on our Instagram account, and we’ll be posting several brand new ones over the course of the next week. All past activities are collected in the Highlights section of our Instagram profile. Even if you don’t use Instagram, you can still view the posts! Individual links to each can also be found on our Safer At Home page.

Gotta Camp At Home Challenge
We’ve created a wide range of mini-challenges full of the Gotta Camp vibe we’re all missing! Head over to the Safer At Home page for all the details.

Traditionally, campers who attend Camp Gottalikachallenge for the full five years are inducted into the Order of the Golden Nut. To maintain Golden Nut-qualifying status for 2020, certain activities from the list must be completed!

Not in the running for a Golden Nut? No problem! You are also welcome to take on the Challenge. As an added bonus, each completed challenge counts as an entry into a drawing for Gotta Gear.

Whew, that’s everything! Please feel free to email me with any questions, and I’m looking forward to gathering together as a camp the best way we can this summer!

Royally Yours,
Q. Lou
