Why I love Magic Camp 0

In a few days, Lisa, Ava, and I will be heading up north toward Haliburton, Ontario, to participate in the Sorcerers Safari Magic Camp. When we visited camp for a few days three years ago, I wasn’t sure that I would like it. But I loved it, and each year the three of us can’t wait to go back.

I have a vivid memory of one moment during that first visit. Lee Asher asked me if I would discuss the faro shuffle with the campers in his card class. I was happy to do so. I talked about the shuffle and explained a method to learn how to do it. This turned into a hands-on workshop as everyone tried the shuffle while I offered suggestions and tag-team help.
