MD Burbs Elite Camp: Mojitos, Moose, And A Bog Down In The Valley-Oh!
Hey ho! The rattlin bog, the bog down in the valley-oh! That was one of the camp songs that the MD Burbs Elite Squad shouted from the rooftop of Pyramid Atlantic. Yelp Elite’s were welcomed to Yelp Goes To Summer Camp this past Sunday at the communal art studio in Silver Spring, Maryland. Pyramid Atlantic is a very unique non-profit that offers art studio space with professional equipment to anyone and everyone in the community to rent out. Pyramid Atlantic boasts equipment to make art in the form of letterpress, screen prints, wood block prints, papermaking, bookmaking, glassmaking, and more.
Libby F poses the question: “Wanna know what makes me a happy camper? I mean, besides sipping mojitos on a hot summer day? Spending two hours at day camp- paper and book making, screen printing, and lest we not forget, 'smores and ice cream eating!” Elite’s got to sip on Community Manger Mike B’s authentic recipe for the Cuban concoction while toasting up marshmallows on small ceramic grills!” Highlights included partygoers getting to print out an original piece of MD Burbs Elite Squad art via an already adapted screen. Surely something to take home and show mom!
Photos of all of these hot shot campers were captured by Decarlo Brown Photography. Decarlo Brown, who freelances in his free time, is actually the Assistant Director of Photographic Services at Towson University.
A Sphinx sized thanks goes out to Jose Dominguez who acted as Camp Director during Yelp’s Summer Camp, and acts as Executive Director of Pyramid Atlantic year round. He really connected Yelpers with this great local nonprofit in so many unique ways. All of this crazy fun was free to the Yelp Elites who have cemented their awesomness online in the Yelp community!

Thank you everyone who came out and relived a small piece of their childhood. Camp ended on a high-note with the whole crew going up to the rooftop of Pyramid Atlantic to sing camp songs Da Mooze & Rattlin' Blog to downtown Silver Spring.
