Ongoing or Daily Activities*

First Aid Cabin* (Forum posts)
Run by Nurse Buffalo
You don’t need to have a magical malady in order to hang out in Nurse Buffalo’s First Aid Cabin. Each day of camp you’ll find new posts devoted to different areas of health and self-care. Led by Nurse Buffalo, campers will share their favorite healthy snack recipes, cute animal gifs, and affirmations. Check out the IGGPPCamp forums every day for new First Aid Cabin activities and join in the fun!

Care Package Swap (Now closed)
Run by IggleSwaps
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 off what is in your care package in the forums!

Urgent Care on Twitter
Run by Nrse Buffalo
Oh, help. Barfing up magical slugs? Jammed your finger in the TARDIS door? Got bitten by a zombie or a vampire or a radioactive spider hiding inside your duffel bag? Or maybe you woke up to a face full of glittery unicorn poo because another troop pranked your cabin? Have no fear, campers! Tweet @iggppcampnurse any time during camp and report your geeky/magical malady. She’s on call to distribute potions, charms, snacks, and adorable puppers to any camper who needs help. Please note: fictional maladies only. The goofier the better. This is honestly just an excuse for Nurse Buffalo to troll everybody like crazy. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED >:D
