Hey! I just read about the "Sorcerer's Safari Camp". It's a magic camp without the magic. Well they do magic but very little of it from what I've heard. Has anyone heard of Tannen's Magic Camp? It is a 1 week all magic camp. I mean nothing but magic and it is awesome! Tannen's is also a magic shop in NYC and they are one of the biggest magic shops I'm told. The camp currently runs out of Bryn Mawr PA. A Beautiful College! A few years ago it was voted the most beautiful campus in the country! Each camper gets their own indoor dorm room! Each room has plenty of space and AC. The camp also has an amazing dining hall with an amazing food staff. Over the course of the week campers attend classes, workshops, and a special lecture each day! On the first full day there is a competition. It is divided into 4 categories. Jr Close-up, Sr Close-up, Jr Stage, and Sr Stage. Everyone performs and is judged. The next day in their free time campers are critiqued in an American Idol manner. The best four people out of every category advance to the finals and on the second to last night they perform again. On the last day the awards are given out. The day is set out like this: At 8:00 everyone wakes up. At 9:15 everyone walks to the dining hall for breakfast (everything is indoors so nobody has to walk any long distances. This year I just had to go up a flight of stairs to breakfast!) Then around 10:30 everyone heads over to their classes for an hour and a half. You can take stage or close-up and the classes are grouped by age and ability. There are 10 campers and about 2 counselors in a class (on average). Everyone then heads back to the dorms at 12:30 to relax and practice. Canteen is also open at this time. At 1:00 everyone goes to lunch. At 2:00 everyone heads over to the lecture hall where a special guest will give a lecture. Everyone heads back to the dorms at 3:00 for 45 min of rest. From 4:00 to 5:30 you have workshops. These are special classes that you can choose from. Dinner is at 6:00. Then at 7:30 the show starts. Each night special guests come and perform for the camp. The show usually ends around 10:00. Most of the time the performers come back to the dorm building to hang out with the campers. Lights out varies night to night from 10:30 to 11:15. The whole week is loads of fun! What I don't get, is why isn't it as popular? Has anyone heard of tannen's? And how is it that the guests are bigger at SS? Just curious?
