Star Wars characters greet summer campers

Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Stormtroopers and light sabers greeted 240 enrollees on Monday, July 21, in the St. Andrew's Schools Summer Adventure Camp. It was the opening day for the campers, ages 5 to 10, who enthusiastically played with the pint-sized, costumed Star Wars characters. One student chaperone in costume found himself besieged  by little girls who wanted to pound and pull his helmet. Princess Leia's hairpiece was also a popular target. Princess Leia and Darth Vader engaged in a spirited light saber duel around the Sellon Hall courtyard.


Monday's event, which was aptly titled, "May The Force Be With You," also offered the keiki a chance to make their own light sabers from colored foam noodles. This is the third decade for the camp. Most of the enrollees - 155 - are actually the children of Asian tourists. Camp director Vicki Lepick said all but a few of those are from Japan, with a few from Hong Kong and South Korea.
