Learning Camping and Life Skills

Posted by Jason Sebell on Jul 18, 2013 1:39:00 AM

There’s been so much going on in and out of Camp in the past few days. This morning a number of different expeditions returned, including the Evergreen Sophomores from their Mt. Kearsarge trip, the Kenwood Inters from their Belle Island Canoe trip, and our Evergreen Seniors from their 3-day climb up and down Mt. Washington. Each group had gorgeous weather for their trips, and upon returning every camper that I spoke with had incredibly positive things to say about their journeys. Our girls on Mt. Washington loved the camaraderie of taking their longest trip ever, and clearly were shocked at how beautiful the view was from the top of the mountain. The Kenwood Inters packed a whole lot into their trip. They learned how to cook over an open fire, improved their canoeing skills, had a big sing-along with their counselor Jared who brought his guitar, and ultimately most of them chose to sleep directly under the stars. The Evergreen Sophomores got to the top of the mountain yesterday in just over an hour and a half, and after eating their picnic lunches ran around the summit picking and eating delicious wild blueberries. Before heading back down the girls all gathered together and tried calling me on my walky-talky, and were amazed that it was able to reach me at Camp!
