Camden Pulkinen has taken over USFS' IG account for this camp and last night (before the start of the keynote, I assume) he shared an IG story in which I glimpsed Pulkinen, Andrew Torgashev, Tomoki Hiwatashi, Alex Krasnozhon, Karen Chen, Alysa Liu, Ryan Dunk and Gabriella Izzo (both are demonstrators for coach Peter Johansson), Pooja Kalyan, Audrey Shin and... Canada's Conrad Orzel who is in Colorado Springs as guest coach Lee Barkell's demonstrator. Mie Hamada reportedly has returned as a guest coach for this year's camp.

Hanna Harrell is also at the camp as well as Young You based on recent Instagram stories and tags.

FB video from last night (May 9) - Ashley Wagner hosted a conversation with Mirai Nagasu and Vincent Zhou (~25 mins.): https://www.facebook.com/usfigureskating/videos/vb.209118026341/562213917520190/?type=3&theater
Mirai is so adorable. Talking about her Olympic feat, she knew she landed the 3A from the crowd reaction, then thought: "Oh no, I did it, but I still have the whole rest of the program...."

Vincent is chewing gum through the whole thing. Not a good look.

I really enjoyed that interview. It was conversational and long enough that Mirai/Vincent could really answer the questions. Good job Ashley.

Before Alysa left jump camp (for her Stars on Ice debut in Anaheim tonight):
Conrad Orzel also filmed Alysa landing 4Lz(hand down)+3T on his cell phone on Friday (IG story): https://www.instagram.com/p/BxTGlW2FGxG/

Mirai's photo with Alysa: https://www.instagram.com/p/BxTAXRQlcJd/
Wearing the old @usfigureskating jackets. One of us is too small to fit into the new one and one of us didn’t get one because she didn’t compete this season. Not hard to figure out which is which. 😝

We have another thing in common...guess what it is!
Side note: Alysa’s triple axel broke my record for the fastest rotation. According to the data analysis, she can rotate at a speed of 5.5 turns per second. What an amazing future. 🤯

Thank you @usfigureskating for inviting me to the “jump on it!” camp as a demonstrator. It was a pleasure working beside all these amazing athletes who train in Colorado! A lot of great memories were made😊

Mie Hamada reportedly has returned as a guest coach for this year's camp.
Mie Hamada brought a group of her students to participate in the camp. Rika Kihira has posted 2 photos (with Yuna Shiraiwa in both and Tomoki Hiwatashi in first one):

I believe Ayaka Hosoda, 24, is in both photos? She landed two clean 3A in her Nationals FS (8th overall) and hopefully will make her international debut for Japan in the coming season.

Yuna Shiraiwa posted a photo at Garden of the Gods Park: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bxm8II7JNOk/

ETA:

Kihira tweeted/posted on her IG a video clip from a dance lesson (with Shiraiwa & Hosoda?):
