Knighthood I: July 7-July 20, 2013**“Knighthood I” unfolds the history of the Arthurian legends by learning of Merlin. The culminating event of Knighthood I is “Merlin’s Masque,” an all-day play that takes place in the Council Ring in three acts and dramatizes the book entitled The Crystal Cave by Mary Stewart.
Knighthood II: July 21-August 3, 2013“Knighthood II” picks up where Knighthood I ends in the story line: Merlin ushers in the rise of King Arthur and the coming of Camelot. During Knighthood II, campers cast their votes for a “Court” that will portray the King, Queen and the Lords and Ladies of Camelot. The culminating event of Knighthood II is a day-long “Pageant” in six acts, performed by members of the Court. All cabin and dorm groups make a presentation to the Court during Pageant in the form of music, drama, dance or a tangible gift. Both Knighthood I and Knighthood II end with Ladies Court and Knights Induction, the camp’s most traditional and meaningful ceremony during these two sessions.
