Farm Camp Session Three
Cannot believe it is already the middle of week one! We have been having such a good time here at Farm Camp.
Some of the activities over the last few days:
Goat washing: even goats need baths
Team-building: a series of games involving strategy and communication
Tree hugging and appreciation: going out into the woods and exploring the trees around us
Goatstacle courses: building obstacle courses for the animals using cardboard and plywood
Berry picking: we have SO MANY raspberries that need harvesting
Candle making: crock pots, string, and wax… what more do you need
Mouse house building: exactly as it sounds, minus real mice
Pond exploration: so many newts and frogs to see
Last night for evening program we played a game called Wells Fargo. It has nothing to do with banking and is essentially Capture the Flag with a twist. Two teams, two banks, ten pieces of gold. Instead of having a place where people have to wait if they get tagged, people hang socks or bandanas from their waist, and members of the opposite team are able to pull the socks in lieu of tagging. If your sock gets pulled, you have to sit out until a member of your team comes and gives you a different stolen sock.
