Ongoing or Daily Activities*

Care Package Swap (Now closed)
Run by Michelle
Summer camp care packages are boxes chock full of goodies from home, lovingly packed by your families (or in this case, one of your fellow camper iggles.) You can send camp goodies with a geeky twist, or just use this opportunity to shower your recipient with random, fun goodies. Have fun with it! Did you participate? Show up what is in your care package in the forums!

Friendship Bracelets
Run by the IGGPPC HQ
Inspired by the Quilting Bee, this activity is one where you can build your very own digital friendship bracelet by swapping segments with your friends. Create your own primary segment and build your online friendship bracelet. Make it as long as you can!

The Great Closet Cosplay Challenge* (Forum post)
Run by Mama Jo (Joanna)
Mama Jo is putting the iggles, and herself, to the ultimate ‘Cosplay in your Closet’ test. Can you put together the right ensemble to match these seemingly simple prompts? We won’t tell, until Day 1 of Camp – and then it’s off to your dressers where you’ll need to put together 5 fabulous outfits, one for each day of camp, according to our prompts. Be sure to join your fellow iggles in a very fun Great Closet Cosplay Challenge. All of the images can be posted to the dedicated forum, or on Twitter and Instagram using #IgglesCosplay (so stay glued to that hashtag!!!). Get out your Disneybounds, your Everyday Cosplays, and your geeky accessories, and get ready to strut your cosplay chic!
