Camp Loki 1956

Summer 1956 brings Camp Loki across the Channel and into France! The four different main camp areas are based on four of the country's big cities.

The central camp area, Paris, consists of: the Château de Versailles, a beautiful palace which houses the dining hall for all campers, the house-elf-run kitchens, the shared counsellors' lounge, the camp director's office and living quarters, and a variety of other interesting rooms, including a replica of the famous Hall of Mirrors; Notre-Dame, an impressive Gothic cathedral that has been converted into an infirmary for the summer; and the Jardin du Luxembourg, an expansive stretch of garden space that has been repurposed as the Quidditch pitch for the summer. A small Quidditch shed, where players can find spare brooms, balls, and other equipment, stands to the side of the pitch, and some temporary stands have been erected for spectators. The fireplaces connected to the Floo Channel -- the only way to get in and out of Camp Loki -- can be found in the entrance hall of the Château de Versailles. Three paths lead away from the central area towards other parts of the camp.

The left road leads towards Marseille. The Calanque de Sormiou, a long cove complete with a beach, stretches out into blue seas. A small distance away lies the Château d'If, an island fortress that can only be swum to or accessed via the self-steering boats moored along the shore. Further inland lies the Palais Longchamp, home to Team Cézanne. The main hall is structured around a huge fountain, with the wings of the building designed to curve either side of the water. These wings house Cézanne's cabins: the east wing contains the girls' rooms, and the west wing contains the boys' rooms. Any boys trying to enter the east wing's rooms will find themselves suddenly standing outside in the middle of the fountain instead.
Team Cézanne Counsellors: Lia Ayres, Artemis Marquis, Jeremiah Smallweed.

If you follow the middle path, you'll soon find yourself in Toulouse. The Jardin des Plantes  takes up most of the space here, with the Canal du Midi running right through the area. Hôtel d'Assézat, a Renaissance townhouse, is situated in the centre of the Jardin des Plantes. The lower floor offers a huge common room open to all campers, complete with a perpetually-crackling fire, a comfortable seating area, and a decent selection of Muggle and magical board games. The Team Daubigny cabins are located upstairs, with the boys' cabin in the west wing and the girls' cabins in the east wing. Boys trying to enter any room in the east wing will find that the paintings hanging along the walls have a tendency to fall and block the doorway, making entering impossible.
Team Daubigny Counsellors: Olette Clarington-DuPont, Pilar Reina, Maria Téodora Wittington.

Taking the right path will bring you to Bordeaux. The duelling block this term can be found in Palais Gallien -- or what's left of it. The ancient Roman amphitheatre is mostly ruins now, but it offers some good places to hide for dodging duellists. Spectator stands have been set up along one standing wall. Across the way, is the Pont de Pierre, an impressive-looking bridge. The Team Matisse cabins can be found within the Grand Théâtre, the main hall of which is open to all campers every evening for film nights. The cabins themselves are converted on the second floor. Boys' rooms are along the west corridor, and girls' rooms are along the east. Boys trying to access the east corridor's rooms will find that they physically cannot cross the thresholds to them.
Team Matisse Counsellors: Marilyn-Rose Wilson, Logan Fetterly, Virtue Hir.

i see a mansard roof through the trees
i see a salty message written in the eaves
the ground beneath my feet, the hot garbage and concrete
and now the tops of buildings, i can see them too
