School is over and camp has begun. I don’t know what’s happening in your neck of the wood, but here in Montreal we have some excellent Magic Day Camps. The first session must have finished as we had a slew of kids here the past few days, most of them wanting the same things. I am so glad I had them in stock. The kids are wonderful, bright, polite and enthusiastic. I’m sure their magic teachers had a great deal to do with that.
Not only that, but some schools have magic as part of the program. I just read a post on my face book that said, “When we were young we were taught to say “please” and “thank you”, implying that this younger generation has no manners. I can only speak for the ones that come into our shop and they are all polite and respectful. (I can say that for most of the adults too.) On top of that, it’s getting harder to fool them, so I have great hopes for the next generation of magicians.
