The Lumberjanes’ experiences at Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady Types are just a bit different from anything you might have experienced in scouts. Jo, April, Mal, Molly and Ripley have noticed a lot of supernatural creatures hanging around their camp cabin and that can only mean one thing: adventure! These friends aren’t afraid to try and figure out “what the junk” is going on before the end of summer.
The Lumberjanes series is Gravity Falls meets Indiana Jones meets Scooby Doo meets Girl Scout camp. There’s a great balance between mysterious adventures, silly predicaments, and heartfelt moments. There are puns abound and even the campers’ exclamations are the names of notable women in history (“Oh my Bessie Coleman…”). The characters are diverse, the friendships are positive, and the messages are empowering! What’s not to love?
If you’re ready for some sweet, goofy fun for all ages, you’re ready for Lumberjanes!
