Feral! started making videos before the first camp...we have video footage of the very first visit to our camp site by furs in early 1998, talking to camp directors and having fun on site.
We have footage from almost every year that camp has taken place, including our first trailer put together in 2004 to be shown on FCTV!
In 2010, we started making videos again in earnest with the Feral! the 13th series. We joked around with the Jason theme all year, but always kept it a little dark. If you watch closely, it's clear that 'Jason Furhees' feeds Feral! staff human meat...well, it's kind of clear...but it happened!
In 2011, It Came From Camp Feral! had kung fu fights, knife throwing, and b-movie awesomeness.
In 2012, we continued the trend with Futurecamp...Crono fought Crono, The Grumbler (Growler and Timber) snuck off to a cabin to...well, you know. It was a sitcom style but I wouldn't say that the subject matter was very PG...
For 2014...we've decided to just do it. Let's keep our quirky fun attitude, but we want to see how far we can push the envelope. With Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings as our inspiration, it's easy to turn up the gore, kill off characters, and go Full R.
So we give you the half goofy, half shocking, all Camp Feral! webseries: Algonquinos.

Sparkling Water & Northwoods - ©2012 by Trevor Patrick (Wotan)
Gossamer clouds drift across pastel-blue sky,
A wistful reminder another year has slipped by.
Older and wiser, you hope one might say,
But perhaps old enough to be set in your ways.
As the horizon turns orange and evening becomes night,
Jupiter and Venus shining so bright,
To sparkling water and Northwoods my soul shall take flight,
As Feral as Elder Days.
Away from the progress and smoke of our wealth,
Away from vampiric careers that feed off our health,
Away from concrete boxes that take our well-being by stealth,
In Northwoods you shall find it again.
In bright, warming days, just to bask in the sun,
To rediscover simple fellowship and the child’s sense of fun,
And moment by moment, to cherish every one,
As Feral as Nature made us.
And the perfect-dark nights, magical wonders to behold,
Bright starlight so young yet incredibly old,
In absolute oneness so shall all truths unfold,
Feral Northwoods in clarion call.
Hey all! We've finished Episode Two of our Feral! video series from this year. I'd love if you checked it out and let us know what you think. And if you love it...spread it around :D We just wanna entertain folks, so helping us spread the love is much appreciated! <3
We just finished putting the first episode of 'Ask Timber' together! In it, Timber the talking dog (from the 'Futurecamp' series) answers questions asked by campers and furs. In the first episode, Timber introduces herself!
Does she like to play ball?
Does she fly through time and space?
Does she drink too much vodka?
Only way to find out is to watch! If you like it, please please click 'Thumbs Up' and share it around...the pay off to working on these kinds of things is knowing that people get a chance to see them if they're funny or entertaining enough! Comment too...and if you'd like to ask Timber a question, there are instructions at the end. Also...stay to the end...there's an awesome 'Production Company' promo piece afterwards!
Most furs probably know Camp Feral as a crazy furry summer camp run each year! Well, in the off season we like to keep people entertained...and since all of us are crazy and broken, we do it through screwed up video series'!!
In 2010, we made 'Feral! the 13th,' an homage to Jason Voorhees and his classic slasher series. In 2011, 'It Came From Camp Feral!' spoofed b-movies. This year...we're going all out...
...we're making a retro-futuristic sitcom from the 1960s!!!
Check it out...the first episode of 'Futurecamp!' is online. In it you'll see Pawnee (our adorable mascot), most of Feral! staff with their shirts off, and Crono with a sledgehammer...all with a classic sitcom laugh track!
Please tell us what you think, give us a thumbs up on YouTube if you like it, and share it with friends if you love it! We <3 you all and hope you enjoy! *cue applause*
~ Your Friendly Neighbourhood Summer Camp Staff!
I feel a chill nip in the air tonight,
Soon the geese will move south in noisy flight,
I start to dream of silvery moon and stars so bright,
Of sharing music by fire's warming light...
See the leaves, they begin to turn,
Another year older, yet so much to learn.
Yet to one place my heart will return.
The wonder of Feral nights.
The lake's misty silence and the cry of the loons,
Of wandering foxes, of squirrels and raccoons,
The times of inspiration, which are over too soon,
Feral has returned once again.
The sharing of poetry and the beauty of speech,
Of drawing and painting, artistry to teach,
Of love and understanding we all strive to reach,
Feral will always stay with you.
There's a party planned for this Friday, July 1st (Canada Day!) at Potoroo's new place in Toronto!! Feral staff will be there to spread the word and we'll be previewing the opening footage for the Feral! 'fake b-movie' 'It Came From Camp Feral!' :D
BBQ and Drinks (BYOMeat, BYOBeverage), DJ and music, socializing, frivolity, and awesomeness expected!
Set the date aside...details to come! Let me know if you're interested! roogoyle at gmail dot com!
