Waiting for Harry at "Wild Magic" camp

Listen to this story
Friday night, Harry Potter fans all over the North Country were waiting for the release of Book Seven: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In Shelburne, Vermont some very lucky kids spent all last week gathered at a special day camp designed to look and feel like Hogwarts Academy.

Brian Mann visited just hours before the book's release and has our story.
