DSCN2789_crop… Loves FARM CAMP!

Welcome to Session 2 of the 2009 Summer!!!!! Already we are having so much fun and I just wanted to fill you in a little on the end of last session as well as highlight some of the incredible things we’ve already experienced!

After all the fun at Pete’s Pavilion we came finished off the weekend with Colonial Day and the chill team building time on Sunday (including a movie night in the hayloft of the animal barn!) The rest of the week flew by as the campers got to sign up for more advanced classes in Animal Care, Gardening, Hiking, and Theater. We finished out the week with an another amzing Farm Camp Tradition – Farm Fest! With fun community games and a PBJ relay race, grilled hamburgers & some of our own home -made Ice-Cream before the final photo slide show – it was a day to remember!

All the counselors really had a great time learning and sharing with the campers first session and one of the coolest things that happened in one of our new camper-choice classes (Creekside Nature Poetry) – a lovely set of lines from Solange was written and she gave me permission to share with you all…

(untitled 1)

Pebbles reflecting and obscured

Hazy around the edges

Dark and light

Smooth and hard

Like so many souls

Thrown together

In the twisted path of fate

Unclear

Half-hidden

Like lifetimes suspended

In the cold

Cold path of destiny

(untitled 2)

Hovering above the water

Wooden plants moldering

Inches away from the sweeping tides

Of forgotten times departing

From somewhere to elsewhere.

The icy river runs

Pulling away the washed-out souls

Of those who are never to return.

Whispering slowly with but a ripple

To mark the passing of yesterday.

— Thanks Solange for sharing those with us!!!
