Check In and Opening Campfires!
Today was check in day for Session 3! It was so great seeing old friends reunite and new friendships form. All of our sibling villages met in the late afternoon and started teambuilding and name games so that campers could get to know each other. All of the Hird was together for the first time at dinner tonight when we shared big trays of pizza. From there we met behind the Dining Hall for a big game of ‘Jump Circle’ before splitting off for individual opening campfires.
Sacky, Hemlock, MAC Boys, MAC Girls, and STEP share smores around a campfire

Pac and Windsong sing ‘The Hird Song’ with Al (sorry it’s a little bit dark, we got there late!)
Check in to the blog every night of the session for updates and stories on what the villages did during the day!
