Saturdays are always a fun day in the Hird because it means we have Hird Picnic! Hird Picnic is a great opportunity for campers and staff to perform for the whole camp. We gathered at Hirdstock field overlooking the lake at lunch time. Everyone made their own sandwiches (there were tons of options like turkey, ham, salami, and a few different types of cheeses) along with lemonade, pasta salad, and cookies! After everyone had eaten we gathered around the stage and watched performances that ranged from singing to dancing to challenges. You couldn’t ask for a more picturesque scene.
The other exciting part about Saturdays is the dance! The theme for the dance this session is Yuleball and was chosen by Windsong village. Everyone is at the dining hall as I type this dancing in their snowiest clothing and getting in the holiday spirit. The picture below is 3 Lenape campers who all coordinated their outfits for the dance and wore them to dinner.
