Spotlight Media Had Fun At Unglued: Summer Camp

Spotlight Media Had Fun At Unglued: Summer Camp

The fourth annual Unglued: Summer Camp happened Aug. 31 – Sept. 2 at YMCA Camp Cormorant.

Around 150 campers attended the 21+ summer camp that had events such as sunrise yoga, water aerobics, book club, jewelry making, free pinball, drinks thanks to Drekker and Proof Artisan Distillers, an epic dance party and more. For the third year in a row, Molly Yeh, food blogger and host of the Food Network show Girl Meets Farm, cooked up some meals and treats for campers.

Design & Living Magazine Editor Becca Opp and staff photographer Hillary Ehlen both attended the camp for the first time this year. Here’s what Opp had to say about this experience:

“Right away, I knew that I was finally about to get the childhood camp experience I never had,” she said. “That is exactly how it was, only better. My favorite parts of camp were definitely the people and the food, in no particular order. Molly Yeh and her crew killed it in the kitchen, and I got to meet so many awesome makers, creatives and creatives-in-the-making.”

Ehlen went to summer camp almost every year as a kid and loved it, so she knew this would be right up her alley.

“I was expecting a super fun, kind of wild weekend filled with awesome food, cocktails and people – and I’d say it was exactly that and then some,” she said. “Upon arriving we were greeted with a shot of champagne and the camp ‘orientation’ featured a dancing unicorn holding roman candles – that definitely set the tone for what the weekend had in store. Ashley Morken and her crew were so enthusiastic and did such a great job of planning the weekend right down to the tiniest little details.”

Here’s what she said were her favorite parts of the camp:

“Probably the dance on Saturday night! All of the classes they offered were also awesome, and they also gave us plenty of free time to lay on the beach so the weekend didn’t feel too busy.”

Next year the summer camp will take place Aug. 23-25. For more about this year’s adventure, check out the October issue of Design & Living Magazine!
