The Mess Hall, 11:30 am, June 12th 2017, Day 1
All of the buses of campers had arrived, and all of the campers had been corralled into the Mess Hall for lunch and a welcome to the camp. Lilac, head counselor, stood at the front of the room. She stepped up onto a chair to get the attention of other campers, though the added height only put her at about the same height as many of the campers sitting down. Holly was used to this, however, as a Fae, and knew how to work around her small height.
"Good afternoon, everyone," She said brightly, easily drawing the attention of most students with her natural Fae charisma, "And welcome to Camp Remedy's 200th annual summer camp!"
She paused, and a few campers clapped halfheartedly. Determined not to let the lack of enthusiasm deter her, she carried on.
"For all of you who are returning, welcome back! For those of you who are new and don't know, my name is Lilac Honeybell, and I'm head counselor here. We have a great year planned for you guys! First, enjoy lunch at your own leisure, and then please stop by this table," she gestured to the plastic one by the door where the rest of the counselors sat, "to get your schedules and cabin assignments. We will also be providing a personal copy of camp rules for everyone in the hopes that it will prevent some of you from letting them slip your mind." She gave a few returning campers a look. "Today you will all have free time to settle into your cabins and mingle until dinner. We hope you all have a great summer, and if anyone has any questions, a counselor would be glad to answer it. We're recognizable by our purple lanyards," She gestured to the one around her neck, "And don't forget to have fun!"
Her speech finished, she stepped down from her chair. The lull of conversation started up again as she went to help the camp chefs with setting up the lunch buffet.
