This photo shows the camp's infamous French Polynesian Tropical Bar - with "Pinky" (the palm), "Lelani" (hula dancer), "Barnacle Pete" (parrot),
and those *#%+$ frogs!.
Those *#%+$ Frogs!
Some camps give out I.D. buttons for registration,.....we were supposed to hand out frogs. But our "registrar" decided that they were better
suited as "art & entertainment". Parents, "best cover your kids' eyes for this shot!"
Tropical Bar & Dancers
Another view of the camp bar with "Pinkie", "Leilani", "Pete" and frogs. Breton dancers take a break in the background.

Here, we see King Sylvestre-the-anteater, presiding over his Carnival subjects. (You may have noticed a strange human-like suspendage beneath his
protruding furry proboscus and 'bovine-boy' crown.)

Things are really starting to get out of hand when Shawn Folsom on clarinet joins Alan 'Toadfeathers' Keith and Benoit on grande musettes at the Carnival soiree.
