I regret to announce that, as of this February, Nicholas has left the project. He voiced that he no longer wanted to work with it, nor with the company, and has left it to my jurisdiction.
Camp Here & There will certainly not end! It is ridiculously important to me that this story be told, and I am still writing it with as much of my skill and heart as ever. But, I’ve labored for some time over what to do for Jedidiah. I know his original voice is beloved by everyone, myself included, and that an outside voice actor for him raises production costs far beyond the original scope.
That being said, I will be including Jedidiah in this round of auditions (and removing Nicholas’s name from the branding over the next few weeks). I do not know just yet how this will be explained narratively, if at all, or how I will be working out the technicals. But I do want to give everyone a chance to try for his voice if they please.
So, without further ado…
The season two casting call of Camp Here & There is now live from May 15th – May 31st 2022.
See this document for more information! https://docs.google.com/document/d/195bNsIf4Nw6aDLB7NeHSbmUvEC9ery4ILCe0d3e4wKM/edit?usp=sharing
Can’t wait to see everyone’s auditions! Best of luck!
The cover for season 2 has just been revealed!
Unfortunately, while Patreon has floated us through season 1, we haven’t quite made enough for season 2.
We currently need $6,000 USD to produce season 2 with all the voice acting we plan for it. This is a BIG price, but with some dedication we believe we can get there!
On Saturday February 5th at 3pm PST / 6pm EST, the voices of Sydney (Blue Mayfield), Elijah (Ryan Henning), Yvonne (Emily Safko), Joshua (Ty Coker), and Rowan (Corey Wilder) will be answering questions and reading out quotes requested by donors through Paypal or Superchat.
Anyone who is a patron/joins the Patreon before or during the stream will also be able to request/ask things, as well as anyone who purchases something from our website and emails a proof of purchase to firstname.lastname@example.org! We will count becoming a patron as adding to our goal!
Anything we raise beyond this will go right back into the show in the form of better editing, higher production quality, and potentially even more music or voice acting.
Thank you for all your help supporting independent and disenfranchised creators. So far, producing Camp Here & There has given me hope for having a real, independent career as a physically disabled individual, and hope for art at large.
Can’t wait to see you there! Spread the word if you please!

Camp Lilac is a summer camp in Ohio for transgender and gender nonconforming kids ages 12-17. Essentially, trans camp! In Ohio.
For those 18 and up, we are also always looking for volunteer counselors. The camp is now re-opening its onsite location for Summer 2022. I will be attending the staff this year, and we hope to invite more people to this friendly space which welcomes self expression.
Mayfield & Belov is not directly affiliated with Camp Lilac, but I wanted to take the moment to boost this thing which is important to me.

This is one of those things that made me particularly emotional, and that I couldn’t believe was real. When I opened a single recording of about four people, all cheering and clapping and having a great time together while enjoying my work, I admit that I got misty in the eyes.
I’m a firm believer of collaborative art and the beauty in making things with other people. Really, Camp Here & There is the efforts of several people working together, and alone none of us could make it what it is. Asking our audience to each contribute something small, to all help build the show, felt like everyone was putting a hand together to create what we love. That… well, it’s moving. I have to be ham and cheese about it for a second.
Everyone complains about being a modern day creator – for many valid reasons – but this instilled in me not only the much-needed confidence in my efforts to tell a good story, but a profound appreciation for the ways art reaches out and touches people. I’ve a deeper appreciation for how I, and everyone on this list, have contributed to what I admire so dearly: the mundane act of creating and inspiring. Being someone who feels so intimate about the things that inspire me, it means the world to me to be on the other end of this cycle.
Sometimes, you can feel so removed from what you perceive as too good to be true. I think I’ve been in denial for a long time over the impact CH&T has had. But now, it’s not just my and my best friend’s work. It’s not just us fooling around at night, giggling about what it’d be like to call ourselves professional creators while we made funny voices and hand puppets. It’s something bigger. It’s over 100 people all chanting together to tell a story.
And that’s kind of big. I think it overwhelms me, and I want to pretend it’s not a big deal so I don’t have to feel this way. But that’s a disservice. You all deserve my sincerity, gratitude, and a gooey paragraph of course. Thank you to everyone who helped to tell this story.
Well, now that that’s out of the way, below is a list of all those people who’s voices were used in the crowd of episode 30. You all get the bonafide privilege of saying you were there, in universe, chanting with Elijah. Hope that helps you sleep at night.
