Gospel Magic Camp

This past week Karson went to a camp at church called Gospel Magic Camp. It was led by Magician Steve Holt and she went everyday from 10-12. On Thursday night they had a Magic Show showing all the tricks that they had learned during the week at the Spartanburg Children's Shelter. The shelter unfortunately only had 3-4 kids on this particular night. The Magician started by doing a few tricks. Karson was picked first to help him. She held his hat while he did a few tricks. Then a few minutes later Zachary was chosen to help with another magic trick. He was so excited, because all week he had asked while he couldn't go to magic camp. He did okay until at the very end the magician asked him to hold an imaginary block and he said there is nothing there so he wasn't going to hold it. It was quite funny!! Afterwards the kids from the camp got to show one trick that they had learned from the week. About half of the kids did one trick and the other half did another one. So needless to say after the first two tricks it got pretty boring. Karson and two other girls did the two card Monty. This is where you have two cards and put one behind your back and you magically turn the card behind your back into the card you have in your hand. Actually quite amazing until you find out how it is done. After all the magic we had cookies and juice to end the night. Thank you to Nana for going with us!!

I am sorry I had to miss the magic show. I had a great time at camp. I tried to do the card trick at choir practice but I messed it up! I'm still practicing!

Sounds like fun! I'll have to get Karson to show me her trick.
