Hi people - sorry for not checking in on your for over a week! I have worked on some things behind the scenes and other things on Hopscotch, and haven’t really had the time to write something particularly long.
Let me share my plan for the upcoming weeks, since school starts officially for me again in exactly 17 days.
- Get out a few more trail art tutorials, independent of camp activities.
- Host one competition that’s short/mid-long
- Do another one of the checklist challenges
- Compile results for earlier challenges and after that decide teams and certain advantages for previous winners in an exciting final collab challenge! This will be done after the summer contest judging results are out.
- Collect feedback from all of you related to the camp.
- Close the camp for this year somewhere around 2020-08-23T22:00:00Z.
I can already get back on the Host one competition that’s short/mid-long-point!
First, I’d like to clarify that results from previous challenges will be calculated and announced when the last, final collab challenge is set up. You’ll get more information when it’s approaching.
And now, to a challenge I think is pretty unique!
The Neon Challenge!
For this challenge, you must create a project that is focused around neon colors! Other than that, it can be anything - a game, a trail art, a coded website, music - you name it! BUT, there is a bit of a twist to it. You all have to include an individually assigned neon color in at least one place your project.
Like all challenges, this challenge is also optional - enter if you can! Even though it’s optional, I have assigned a neon color code for every user in Mega Summer Camp this year (referring to the members in the MegaSCamp group). Look below for YOUR assigned neon color code!
Entries in the neon challenge are due 2020-08-04T17:00:00Z.
The top 3 people of this challenge will receive likes, a shoutout in one of my projects, and a special prize related to the final collab competition! If you can not/don’t want to compete in that, I’ll turn the prize into something else.
Assigned color codes

List of assigned color codes - click on the supplied link for an instant conversion to other color code formats! The list is alphabetically ordered.
The list has been generated via a simple program I wrote in Python. I also visualized every color to make sure everyone got a fair color. Some of you have similar colors, but every color has been generated randomly. If you can’t see your name on the assigned color codes list, ask and I’ll fix it.
