Summer 2020 #3

Dear Vega,

While just about all aspects of camp and our lives look, feel, and sound different this summer, you can still hear Kyle start of announcements with a booming, “Gooooooooood Morning Camp Vega!”  It’s almost as if we were gathered together in the Dining Hall.  For a dose of camp spirit sure to make you smile, ,along with updates and events for the week, check out the 3rd installment of  Kyle’s Monday Morning Announcements…the Podcast!

It was another fun week for Vega 2020 (relatively speaking of course), including the hilarious Vega Bunkle Jeopardy on Zoom!  Big thanks to our brave contestants, Callum, Conor, Tristin and Adam; Liz for creating and hosting such a funny and raucous gameshow; and the Vega campers who submitted questions for the Vega Jeopardy Board and who were able to join us on the live Zoom.  A recording is uploaded on the 2020 virtual calendar.

Cameron, Kyle, Paxton & Emily Courtiss on Sunday’s Lazy Breakfast

Also, yesterday was our designated 2020 Sunday Lazy Breakfast. Who doesn’t love eating donuts in PJs? Thank you to all the 2020 campers and staff who sent in pictures with you enjoying Lazy Breakfast!

This week we’re looking forward to: Senior Camp Cooking Zoom with Kelly, playing Jacks/learning to play Jacks, Handstand Contest with Poppins on Zoom, and…..

Linda’s first ever reading of her newly published Varna story, The Night the Stuffed Animals Camp Alive! Generations of campers have listened to Linda tell the many stories of Vega’s tooth fairy, Varna, and even though we are apart this summer, you can still hear her tell one of the most beloved Varna tales. We are so proud of Linda for following her dreams of getting Varna and Violet’s stories into print, and you can now order signed/inscribed copies at

We miss you all very, very much! Stay safe and see you next week!!!

With love,

Kyle & Emily
