Chestnut Hill, or Hogwarts?

Are you a fan of Harry Potter? I know of only a handful of people who aren’t. (You know who you are!)

Do you want to go to Hogwarts? Do you want to play Quidditch? Ride the Hogwarts Express and Knight Bus? Learn and practice spells?

Yeah, I really want to do all these things…

And on October 21-22, 2016, in Chestnut Hill, PA, all of this (and more!) is possible!

Enter the Harry Potter Festival and Quidditch Tournament!

Chestnut Hill College will be transformed into Hogwarts, there will be a Quidditch Tournament, and a festival taking up 10 city blocks over the course of the two days.

There is also a Harry Potter Conference happening October 20-21, 2016!

Surprisingly, Chestnut Hill is in the Northwest corner of downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Epic Nerd Camp

Do you miss going to sleepaway camp? Or did you never get the chance to go? Here’s your chance! There is a Geek Summer Camp for Grown-ups! And I’m rather excited about it. You can spend four days/three nights at a sleepaway camp in the Poconos (Pennsylvania), and experience a whole bunch of really cool activities, including horseback riding, sword play, rock climbing, various water activities, and others!

Independent Lake Camp is a children's camp, but ENC has booked it for a week this June. Image screen captured from www.epicnerdcamp.com

The price is CRAZY low for its first year, as a promotional price – over half off! Next year will be a lot more expensive.

Want to see more details? Here you go.

Need to get there? I know a travel agent who can book you a car, train, or plane (there is a shuttle from Scranton for the latter two options). You can contact Jennifer Desmarais through Orleans Travel. jennifer.desmarais@orleanstravel.ca
