This session our theme day was Colonial Farm Day!

Campers spent the morning learning colonial games, practicing blacksmithing in the forge, and creating colonial costumes. In the afternoon they created small trinkets to barter, and then traded their items with other campers, modeling a traditional barter and trade economy. At night they had a camp dance with our friends from down the road at East Valley Ranch!

As you can see in the pictures, it was a beautiful day. It’s hard to believe there’s only two days left in the session!
