Talent Night at Camp Kidsmomo

August 10th, 2010 by

Wouldn’t it be awesome if there really were a Camp Kidsmomo? The grounds would have tons of hammocks and climbing trees for everyone to read in, we’d hold frequent bonfires for sharing stories, and of course we’d serve lots of delicious snacks and ice cream based on books!

Alas, no such place exists, but a girl can dream, can’t she? And while I’m at it, why stop at just having regular campers — let’s invite our favorite kidlit characters to join us for the summer! And given their fame, of course we’ll make them the stars of the camp talent show, right?

Here’s my proposed program for the night:

  • Harry Potter: Demonstration of defense against the dark arts
  • Hermione Granger: Spontaneous generation of little birds
  • Ron Weasley: Stand-up comedy
  • Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase: Sword fighting demonstration
  • Greg Heffley and Rowley Jefferson: Improv routine
  • Count Olaf: Tragic monologue
  • Oompa Loompas: Musical finale — a huge singing-and-dancing number

Anyone else you’d like to see on stage? Leave a comment and let me know!

If Karen were going to perform at Camp Kidsmomo’s talent night, she would do a tap dance routine. She actually took tap classes for years when she was a kid. Get ready for some time steps and buffaloes!

    Louis from the Trumpet of the Swam could play trumpet.
    Grace Wolfe from Cryptid Hunters/Tentacles could walk a tightrope wire.
    Constance from The Mysterious Benedict Society could read minds.
    Raston from Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat would re-write the lyrics to a song and make it a tribute to Kidsmomo!
    Cimorene from Dealing with Dragons would demonstrate how to clean. 🙂
