With his fanny pack stocked with everything from sunscreen to superglue, Huckleberry knows the best dad comes prepared! Huckleberry loves Blueberry and is here to support her summertime adventures.
As Blueberry’s mom, Juneberry has seen it all. She adores Blueberry’s zest for life and works hard to find the bright side even when her daughter’s plans go awry. With Juneberry’s warm, nurturing nature, it is clear where Blueberry gets her sweet, sunny disposition! If Juneberry sees anyone having a hard time, she is here to talk them through it.
With his backwards ball cap and hand-me-down jeans, Miles is the quintessential little brother. He’s made an art of getting noticed while staying out of trouble. Life is tough for a younger sibling and, sometimes, Miles’ determination to be himself leaves him feeling lonely. Miles is excited to come to camp this year, but he’s determined to find a place for himself out from under Max’s shadow.
Max and Miles’ mom loves her children very raising two growing kids means handling a lot of conflict. Anna is so glad that Max has friends like Blueberry, but she’s eager to see Max welcome Miles into the magical world of camp. Anna hopes the kids can learn that family means sharing and caring, even when it is hard.
One of Blueberry’s uncles, Boysenberry wants Blueberry to know family is all about loving each other unconditionally. While the families we’re born with will support us, sometimes life gives us role models and summer camp friends who feel like family. And that is okay, too!
Blueberry’s high-flying aunt is the queen of facing adventure head on! Gooseberry is here to show Blueberry that nothing is too hard in life you rise to the challenge. It’s when you believe in yourself and leave doubt on the runway that you really soar!
For Chef Shawn, all the kitchen is a stage. Feeding hungry campers demands a visionary with boundless energy and a heart for healthy food. Shawn lives by the notion that even the most mundane dishes can be lifted to greatness with a dash of passion and a soupçon of silliness.

Rhubarb & Floret
Always there with a salty remark on Chef Shawn’s hard work, Rhubarb and Floret give new meaning to the term “food critics”! These silly kitchen sidekicks are living vegetables who take it upon themselves to share a pantry-full of opinions and sass with campers.
Camp Counselor Carol

Carol is always there with a welcome joke or a helping hand! She is eager to let Blueberry and Max learn the most they can about the world around them.
