The Magic of Camp Ooch


“Brush up on your old tricks and learn some new ones as a group of real,
professional magicians reveal some tricks of the trade.
The day will end with a magic show for your friends and families,
where YOU will be the star.”
-Camp Oochigeas “Wacky World of Wizardry” brochure

On November 2, 2013, Camp Oochigeas and Magicana once again, joined forces to deliver their annual, one-day fall workshop packed with magical happenings and laughter, called, The Wacky World of Wizardry. Led by Julie Eng and assisted by magic coaches, James Alan, Joe Culpepper and Suley Fattah, participants spent the whole day learning sleight-of-hand wizardry in order to offer a magic showcase for their families and friends at the end of the day.

We were thrilled with the result! With an Alakazam here and a Hocus Pocus there, the participants put together a wonderful showcase and shared the magic of the day.

Camp Oochigeas is a privately funded, volunteer-based organization that provides year-round programs for children affected by childhood cancer, including the unique and exciting opportunity to experience the wonder of camp. Every year, Magicana teams up with Camp Oochigeas to deliver a modified My Magic Hands workshop, designed to reach out to kids using magic as a teaching vehicle to build their confidence and public speaking skills. The team at Camp Ooch is pretty amazing themselves, bringing about a wonderful partnership to support the young magicians.

Thanks to the volunteers and our My Magic Hands team, the day was full of magic and success – one that we will surely remember as it is marked by mirth, mystery and delight. We hope to share this experience with you again, next year!
