Campy camp posters: A Prisoner106 project

I never went to summer camp.  I didn’t have friends that went to summer camp.  For a while I thought summer camp was just something that existed in tween/YA books to move the plot along.  Parents were out of the picture.  Kids were left to sort out their own problems and/or engage in hijinx and adventure.  Camp was a macguffin of sorts.

Look at ALL the summer camp posters!

Enter the best summer camp of all:  Camp Magic MacGuffin.

Camp Magic MacGuffin closed with the the end of summer 2012.  The facilities have seen better days.

But a tribute poster was still in order.

I borrowed a couple of images from the Camp Magic MacGuffin site including the header and the “visit the camp store” logo.  I just erased “store” so that it says “Visit the camp.”

Visit the camp store I used GIMP for this poster.  The Magic MacGuffin header is a layer.  I merged the cabin with the “Visit the camp” text so the two were easier to reposition.

I also found some campy and hippie fonts to use.

And just for fun:  some Magic MacGuffin counselors meet The Prisoner:
