While Camp Hyrule is not the training grounds for future Links like how Princess Peaches are churned out, it was still a place for those of us who found ourselves dreaming of green tunics in our sleep to go and enjoy the company of like-minded others. This year, that is not the case, as Camp Hyrule reveals that it has closed its doors. The reasoning behind depriving us all of the experience? Bad luck.

Turns out, they're thinking that the 13th anniversary of the camp, combined with their natural propensity for disaster, is enough to have them call it quits. Instead, they're offering up a contest, allowing folks to enter on August 13th at the chance to win a one-of-a-kind life-size Link statue. Fair trade? We'll leave that up to you.

And, if you attended in the past, share your fond memories with us, won't you?
