We’re not just about relaxing in Troop Nook, but making lasting friendships and exploring the world around us. Whether you like to kick back in a hammock, or shake those trees for some treats, you’ll fit right in!
Counselors: Pip & Peachy
About Lily aka Pip: Lily, aka Counselor Pip, can often be found with her nose in a spooky book and thinks that folding down the corner of a page is a truly horrific act (use a scrap of paper, you monster!). She’ll knit you a slouchy hat in your most favorite color, though she’ll only use the very best yarn (as she’s a bit of a fiber-snob). A scribbler of words in notebooks and journals and snail mail, she loves to write anything that comes to mind…and will ramble for pages as the thoughts spin out. Lily’s plumbob is almost always bright green. you can find her on twitter @GirlintheLoo

About Kim aka Peachy:
Kim, aka Peachy, is a little bit June and a whole lotta Lucy. It’s not uncommon to find her primping for a pinup shoot, or mashing buttons on her favorite retro gaming console. She’d petition for it to be Christmas and Halloween year-round, and if RavenPuff were a real house, she would definitely be Head Girl. Give her a follow on Twitter or Instagram – @ThePeachMartini

About Katherine aka Jumba:

Through the chaos of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey, tricksy time-bending phenomena, we’ve come together for the magic that is Camp. If you’ve ever felt called or compelled toward another place and time, we understand you. Dream of meeting a dinosaur, or having tea with Marie Antoinette? Wonder if the Jetsons reality will ever be ours? Bring your old-timey fashion, your futuristic gear, your magical artifacts, and join us! (It’s bigger on the inside, we promise.)

About Hélène aka Wibbly-Wobbly:
Hélène is a proud Hufflepuff who isn’t afraid to go into the woods at dawn to do crazy geeky activities with her friends. She wishes she could travel in time so she would be able to do everything she planned for one day at last, and her books-I-must-read list would be shorter.

Favourite camp song: The ones i know are in French, my favorite is “Dans la troupe”. A rough translation would be : “In our troop, there are no wooden legs. There are noodles but we can’t see them. The best way to walk, is still ours. It’s putting one foot in front of the other and do it again.”
Favourite camp food: Smooooore’s ! But to be honest, everything with chocolate in it will do xD
Favourite camp memory: I went once to camp when I was young. I kept the feeling it was nice but I don’t remember it well. I have a lot of IGGPPCamp Memories and it’s hard to pick just one… I love when activities bring us together and we had real fun, this is when friendship are made !

Counselor Darko loves to play hide and seek after dark, and is a notorious prankster. Looking for shenanigans? She’s always game. Catch her on Twitter or IG @amavongeek for some plotting. She’s 100%* sure the lake monster is a myth, and it’s totally safe to go in the water.

Favourite camp memory: That time my brothers & I were hiking in Glacier National Park and we saw a mountain goat trotting down the trail toward us. We thought it was a big white dog at first, so we just moved to the side and it trotted right past us.
About Mafalda aka Dittany:
JustCombined is our resident Slytherin, a veteran IGGPPCamper, and a lover of all things food-related. If you put it in front of her, she’ll turn it into something delicious! (Is it magic?
