Welcome back to the Camp Encore/Coda blog! This past Sunday we attended another baseball game at Hadlock Field to sing another rousing rendition of the American National Anthem to the spectators and players of the Portland Sea Dogs. Please visit the Official Camp Encore/Coda Facebook Page to see our singers perform. Here are a few moments from the day!

We also had a hopping dance this past weekend, when our dedicated musicians mingled and boogied the night away. After a long week of rewarding rehearsals, performances, and practices, it was great fun to hang out and blow off some steam. Here are some shots of our campers dancing it out!

So Long, Session One!

Our wonderful first session campers have come and gone, but there are still many memories to treasure and moments worth sharing! Together, we enjoyed a collection of brilliant concerts, some supremely silly activities, and the experience of waking up every day in this beautiful place. As one last goodbye, please enjoy these shots of the first half of the summer.IMG_4826

Out To The Ball Game!

Time continues to tick by here at Camp Encore/Coda! Let’s head back a few days, to Sunday the 16th of July, when our stellar camp vocalists delivered a spectacular rendition of the American National Anthem to the fans and players of the Portland Sea Dogs Baseball team at Hadlock Field.

…And the crowd goes wild!

Be sure to check out our official Facebook page to see our stunning singers in action. It was certainly a moment of pride for the entire camp!

The evening of the 16th, we had our legendary Challenge Night, in which cabins band together, Green team versus Blue team, to accomplish a series of challenges and competitions–including trivia questions, name-that-tunes, mini lip-syncing matches, Rubix cube competitions, hula-hoop-offs, and, last but not least, paper fish racing! It was an exciting finish to an exciting day.
