Hey Mr. Dowell,

What I am looking for is during the day(like after lunch), they bring in certain musicians to give an hour long discussion with music and stuff. Last year they had the Vanicour brothers and some other people each day. I guess they let the campers know once the camp starts.

Hey Joey,

Oh yeah, I see what you mean. There was no mention those in the paper.
